Hail Cassius Neptune
Hail Cassius Neptune
Hail Cassius Neptune is a "psychedelic soul" powerhouse that fuses art rock with R&B into a unique sound channeling Erykah Badu and Hiatus Kaiyote. Fronted by Kylie Jo and Wilson Stern, their music weaves a danceable tapestry for the mind, body & soul. The band has been compared to acts across the gamut from The Mars Volta and Primus to Frank Zappa and D'Angelo. Kylie Jo's powerful vocals bring together Lauryn Hill's sense of soul with Fiona Apple's sense of humor. As a Southeast band on the rise, H!CN has shared the stage with Papadosio, Beats Antique, and Consider the Source.

Their newest release "Oscillate" was recorded live at Medusa Studios in Gainesville, FL and is the first single from H!CN's forthcoming EP "LEMB". As reviewed by emergingindiebands,com "Oscillate...finds the audience disentangling their own tendons to dip with the dive and hip with the highs in a track contextualised by sultry vocal and swinging rhythms."
Cole DeGenova
Cole DeGenova
Musician, poet, and songwriter Cole DeGenova has spent most of his life crafting his eclectic artistic voice. Born in Chicago and growing up in a family of musicians and artists, DeGenova began playing piano at age four and spent his childhood studying classical piano, the jazz and blues of his hometown, and the pop music of The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and D’Angelo. By age 15 he was playing professionally in jazz and blues clubs on Chicago’s South Side. His prodigious talents led him to study at Berklee College of Music in 2005 where he trained further with jazz piano great Danilo Perez. After forming his funky alternative soul group Cole DeGenova & The Peoples Republic with fellow Berklee students, they released their first album JUST PEOPLE AGAIN in 2009. Three years later, and after thousands of miles of road covered, his second album, ANOTHER COUNTRY, is here this summer 2012; an inspired culmination of lessons learned on the road, soulful melodies, and the infectious grooves of his band. A troubadour in the truest sense, Cole DeGenova has performed alongside or opened for the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Tower of Power, Saul Williams, Kurt Elling, Patricia Barber, Meshell N’degeocello, Snarky Puppy, Paula Cole, J Davey, and rapper the GZA.
