ADAM GREEN is a singer-songwriter, artist and filmmaker. Green is well known for being one-half of The Moldy Peaches, whose song "Anyone Else But You" was featured on the Juno soundtrack, which reached No 1 on the US Billboard Charts. A brilliant, charming and highly engaging live performer, Green has toured the world extensively with bands like The Strokes and Cribs and recently completed a series of sold out shows throughout Europe.
"A classic, timeless feel, with Green's crooning and unique lyrical approach setting him head and shoulders above most other singer/songwriters." Drowned in Sound (10/10 review of Friends Of Mine)
"Definitely not your typical singer/songwriter, Adam Green is so much more than that, and this album has a classic, timeless feel to it, brilliantly drawing from divergent musical traditions (much like the Gershwins in that respect), twisting from them an unique but incredibly familiar sound. . . a masterpiece." All Music (review of Jacket Full of Danger)
A pastiche of post-rock, chamber-pop and contemporary classical composition, San Fermin is the work of Brooklyn composer and songwriter Ellis Ludwig-Leone -- and is also a nine person touring ensemble. After finishing his musical studies at Yale, Ludwig-Leone wrote the band's Downtown Records debut in six weeks while holed up in a studio on the mountainous border between Alberta and British Columbia.
