Daemon Chili

AMERICANA | FOLK | ROOTS | ROCK

Formed in the fall of 2013, Daemon Chili quickly gained regional traction by way of their energetic and powerful live performances. Lead singer and songwriter, Michael Dion is the project’s visionary and plays many roles in the band, including rhythm guitar, harmonica and lap steel. Dion, formerly of the acclaimed New England string band Hot Day at the Zoo, reworked much of the material from his former outfit, creating something entirely new and exciting.

Daemon Chili is composed of Jason Moretti (lead guitar), Jay Samiagio (bass), and Jay Breen (drums). Each band member has years of experience with prior projects, namely Cotton Mouth and The Freelance Bishops. Heavily influenced by the unique and eclectic sounds of iconic artists, such as The Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers, and The Band, Daemon Chili fuses elements of rock, blues, folk, Americana, bluegrass and reggae into their sound.

Mercy of the Sea, Daemon Chili’s sophomore album, was released in April of 2017 and peaked at #5 on the Relix/Jambands.com Radio Chart. Members of the band have also had the privilege of sharing the stage with luminary acts like Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Levon Helms, Trampled by Turtles, The Ryan Montbleau Band and more.

INDIE ROCK | FOLK | AMERICANA | SINGER-SONGWRITER

Nico Rivers is a singer-songwriter with a knack for transformation. Since he hit the road in 2011, Rivers has released 3 EPs and toured throughout the United States and Europe. He’s performed at too many festivals and events to count. However, some of his most notable venues include South by South West, SS Cape May, and Boston’s renowned Club Passim.

Influenced by artists such as Neil Young, Delta Spirit, Bright Eyes, Band of Horses, the Lumineers, Guns N’ Roses, and Bob Dylan, Nico’s music has an edgy flavor. Vanyaland says it “exudes a raw passion”. And while you can’t quite classify it under one genre, you can say it certainly “blurs the lines between indie rock and folk”.

Nico is currently based out of Boston, MA and can be found throughout the Northeast performing solo or backed by a revolving cast of musicians known as The Black Grass.

Federico & the Breeze

FOLK | AMERICANA | ROOTS | SINGER-SONGWRITER

Federico and the Breeze is a folk, americana, and roots band that performs original material, along with songs by legendary artists, such as Mark Knopfler, Eric Clapton, John Mellencamp, JJ Cale, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and more.

As a self-proclaimed tunesmith, Federico first builds songs with poignant lyrics, accompanied by his trusty acoustic guitar. Once the melody is settled, he then turns to fellow bandmate Matthew Kloosterman to add subtle, yet impactful harmonies on the electric guitar. Afterwards, award-winning percussionist Fabio Pirozzolo is called in to create emphatic rhythms with the cajon. Together, Federico and the Breeze has a beautiful and full sound, performing their traditional genres, but with a creative groove and lots of acoustic finger-picking.

Federico’s first album, Waiting for a Friend was released in 2008 and charted well on the americana and roots playlists. He is available for various types of events, festivals, and more.
