Thalia Zedek
Thalia Zedek
Born in 1961, Thalia Zedek started her career in the early 80's, in Boston, MA, playing in the short-lived group "Dangerous Birds". In search for a "harder" sound, she formed "Uzi" in the mid-80's. Some internal conflicts led to the band’s dissolution in 1986.

Thalia then became the new front-woman of the NYC band 'Live Skull" until the band's split in 1989. Back in Boston, she formed "Come". The band existed during about 10 years, recording 4 LPs.

After Come ended (officially in 2001), Thalia began writing and recording under her own name.

Live show review, Industry Lab Cambridge MA, June 29th 2016:
A short false alarm of police notwithstanding, Dyr Faser’s lush
psychedelic romp of a set was the deliciously chilled out cruise we all needed to take. Anchored to the filtered whooshing of an 808 drum machine, Eric Boomhower and Thalia Zedek weaved a multilayered net of slippery, delayed Velvets-inspired guitars, alternating rhythm and lead with mesmerizing effectiveness. Watercolor melodies dashed out with crystal clear reverb from Boomhower’s guitar, drawing jangling answers from Zedek’s almost immediately; the two were particularly locked in on set highlight “Koso Biru”, a dreamy raga jam that had the crowd head-bopping down a dusky country road. Slow motion projections of kids at play, dark forests, and mysterious wooden buildings could not have been more fitting. Zedek’s ethereal cooing and splashes of synthesizer were particular highlights, adding even more dazzling color to an already vibrant set. With a single unison guitar note crashing together in perfect unity, Dyr Faser took a bow, closing out their tour and surely winning over new hometown converts. -

Cold Expectations
Cold Expectations
Formed in May 2016, the Cold Expectations are a coming together of friends to play loosey-goosey, all-original music. Based in Boston MA, the band is lined up a three-day recording session in July '16, with Pete Weiss behind the board. With any luck, The Cold Expectations will be coming your way soon to a local watering hole or backyard bbq.

If you are a fan of acoustic-based music, original songs, sometimes silly but other times sad, The Cold Expectations might just be the fix you're searchin' for.

Carissa Johnson
"Carissa Johnson takes more cues from Sleater Kinney than Evanescence, and her latest CD, For Now, is a straight-up rocker that recalls early aughts Boston bands Aloud and Damone." - the Hippo (Boston)

"Puts me in mind of the Go-Gos at a summit meeting with the Sex Pistols." - Francis Dimenno, Noise Magazine (Boston)

"Carissa Johnson's mis-steps are more fun to listen to than many people's successes, due in large part to her overwhelming enthusiasm in selling her songs"

"A whole lot of fun to watch and looking like she just stepped out of a Runaways album cover, Johnson brings a great 70's punk feel." J. Pappaconstantine, Maine Music News

"Solid arrangements with good hooks, honest delivery and a real hearken back to the beefy old school production style of the New York Dolls." - M. Puskas
