Boston-based singer/songwriter, Jocelyn Arndt, has teamed up with Popdust to exclusively premiere her new lyric video for "Lullaby" today, here http://bit.ly/17I2Amo. "Lullaby" is the third track off Jocelyn's new EP, Strangers In Fairyland, which was released on October 27th. Jocelyn previously released her first single "Cinderella" with Joonbug and her second single "Nevermind" with Fanlala. Currently based in Boston, Jocelyn crafts songs that blend raw energy and striking vocals with breathtaking, personal emotion. Her new EP, mastered by Brad Blackwood (Maroon 5, Saving Abel, Eve 6) brings that energy to a new level. For more information, please visit www.JocelynArndt.com.
Regarding the video, Jocelyn stated, "it was a truly awesome experience to see the emotions in my lyrics for Lullaby actually come to life in this video. The whole feel is incredibly stark, empty, and resigned which is great considering that we filmed our parts on a green screen with the computer art work added later. I think the emotion really comes through!"
Jocelyn and her brother/co-writer Chris began to reach past their living room practice space when they were barely teens, playing anywhere they could find permission and a power outlet. While Jocelyn's distinctive vocal style took shape, Chris's guitar skills flourished, both drawing inspiration from local classic rock stations and their parents' bottomless record collection. The duo soon became known for their stylized songs and powerful performances borrowing equally from classic rock and contemporary indie energy. The music is stunning, mature, sensual, and always impassioned.
At the same time, the siblings recognized another common strength. Both excelled in academics. When Jocelyn completed high school, graduating as Salutatorian, she was accepted at Harvard University. Chris, not to be outdone, finished school a year later as Valedictorian. He was offered enrollment at Yale, but with the duos music gaining traction and a development deal on the line he opted to join Jocelyn at Harvard. This critical decision allowed Jocelyn and Chris to accelerate their writing and complete their debut EP while at the same time providing a common home base to perform and tour from.
Strangers In Fairyland gave Jocelyn Arndt the opportunity to work with Grammy award-winner Brad Blackwood (Maroon 5, Saving Abel, Eve 6) who mastered the EP. Throughout her musical career, Jocelyn has played the Big Apple Indie Music Series, Black Bear Music Festival, Move Music Fest, and the Utica Music & Arts Festival as well as appearing live on Fox Television's Good Day New York. In addition she's shared the stage with artists such as Magic Man, Ryan Montbleau, Shawn Rowe, and Shinobi Ninja, performing throughout New York, Massachusetts, Virginia, Michigan, Tennessee, and Georgia.
Today, Jocelyn 19 and her brother Chris 18, continue to blend alt-rock texture with strong hooks to create broad-genre appeal. The result is worlds beyond ordinary.
Upcoming Tour Dates:
Jan 23/24 Sundance Film Festival - The New York Lounge Park City, Utah
February 7 The Hollow - WSG TBA Albany, NY
March 21st Acme Feed & Seed on Broadway Nashville, TN
April 25th The Move Music Festival Albany, NY

IRISH LIBRARY CELEBRATES “DUBLINERS” 100-YEAR ANNIVERSARY
James Joyce book inspires lectures, movies, and more at McClelland Irish Library
James Joyce wrote “Dubliners” before 1905. The book is a collection of 15 short stories that was groundbreaking because it pushed the genre while featuring real people and real situations — something that had never been done before. Many of the characters in the book bore a close resemblance to family members, friends and enemies of the author.
Joyce spent almost a decade trying to have the book published in part because he refused to cut out controversial sections. After countless rejections by Irish printers who burned and destroyed pages, it was finally published in London.
The lecture “James Joyce’s Dubliners: Still Engaging Readers and Writers 100 Years After Publication” takes place from 7-8 p.m. Sept. 24 and will be presented by Irish-born poet Adrienne Leavy. Leavy is widely published in Irish literary journals and currently working on her first poetry collection. The lecture is $5 donation for nonmembers, free for members.
To Release New Album Absent Sounds
On October 7th!
Started in 2007 by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joey Vannucchi, From Indian Lakes has since expanded to include Justin Stanphill (guitar and vocals), Chris Kellogg (bass and vocals), Tohm Ifergan (drums), and Enrique Gutierrez (keys and vocals).
Their debut album, 'The Man With Wooden Legs' was released in 2009 and was quickly followed up by a fan favorite, 'Acoustic EP', which Joey recorded and mixed in a home studio. After a few years of writing, touring, and building their fan base, they released 'Able Bodies' in November 2013. The album took the music scene by storm and remains in high acclaim by countless sites, magazines, blogs, and of course, their fans.
Absent Sounds' will be the band's first album since signing to Triple Crown Records in 2013. From Indian Lakes explores what it means to be alive throughout the album; "Sleeping Limbs," is an echoing and ethereal song that asks, "What's the point to this?" Meanwhile "Am I Alive," uses sweet and lilting melodies to lift the mood.
On the release of 'Absent Sounds,' Vannucci tells us, "To me this album feels like finally sleeping at night, or the first sigh of relief after good news. With a label behind the band, it is a record that wasn't constrained by time, or other things that usually get in the way of ones vision. I always felt like no matter what I did, being in a studio had to always be "Here's a guitar and a drumset kid, you've got x amount of time", but this time it was about making the songs sound exactly like they did in my head, no matter how long it took. Having no regrets about an album is an incredible feeling."
From Indian Lakes will release their new album, 'Absent Sounds', on October 7th, 2014.
