Innocent When You Dream
"Innocent When You Dream is a singular and distinctive statement that stands out from the crowd."
– DR. STEVE KINIGSTEIN, JUST JAZZ GUITAR MAGAZINE
Innocent When You Dream brings a new element to Waits' music while remaining true to its essence.

The quintet has performed in NY area, LA and has been featured at notable Jazz clubs: The B-Flat (Berlin), Upstairs (Montreal) and The Rex (Toronto). Their first record "Celebrating The Music of Tom Waits" was release on Jazz Collective Records (2010) and their second recording "Dirt In The Ground" will be available May 2017.

Bad Channels
Nick Grottick and Jess Gierusz have been collaborating as Bad Channels since 2012, working mostly as experimental rap producers. Now, they've shifted their focus to original material, and "Sad Channels" effectively mixes the sinister with the sublime. It begins with an anxious drum machine loop and threateningly heavy riffs, but once the reverb-soaked vocals enter, it becomes hauntingly beautiful.
ZONES
"Thick perception-warping aural marmalade"
- The Quietus
"ZONES have mastered the rich textures of melting melodies and afternoon horseshoes after summer class with your stoned friends."
- Tiny Mix Tapes
Trails
Utopian flashback psyche.
