For years fans of Boston born singer/songwriter Lily Holbrook all had one thing in common...a subway token! Lily was a regular fixture inside the Park Street Subway Station, performing to mesmerized crowds of commuters. Her busking eventually garnered the attention of media ranging from The Boston Globe to The Washington Post--and more. During production of her latest album, legendary producer Glen Ballard (Alanis Morisette, No Doubt, Michael Jackson) even touted Lily as "the real deal!"
Matt Jaffe & The Distractions is a rock trio of 18-year-olds based in San Francisco. The group formed after Talking Heads guitarist and keyboardist Jerry Harrison discovered Matt performing solo at an open mic and decided to produce his music. Together, and with the rhythm section force of Alex Coltharp and Sammie Fischer, they are working on the band's debut record of original material in the vein of The Clash and Elvis Costello.
