Pocket Vinyl is a melodic mesh between a piano and a painting.

Let's keep this simple: Pocket Vinyl is primarily a story of love. Eric Stevenson and Elizabeth Jancewicz met in 2009 and starting dating in early 2010. They went on their first tour in the summer of 2010 showcasing their unique show which includes a man who hits, beats, and slams a piano with his blistered fingers while a woman (a very beautiful woman) creates a brand new painting each night. Every show was different, and each show memorable to those who came. Now hailing from New London, CT, they've played over 150 shows is nearly every state east of the Mississippi River, and even quite a few beyond that. Their t-shirts and CD packaging are all hand-made. They've created 9 stop animation music videos (so far), 4 on-the-road documentaries (so far), 2 full length albums, 2 EPs, plus a few singles. They book, manage, and create everything themselves, and are incredibly proud of that fact.  Whether they're playing for 2 or 2000 people, they always bring their intensity and art 100%.

Tiger Gilliam

To let you in on a little known industry secret: Tiger is not a professional musician. She's just a girl who one day, for reasons unknown, became bored with B-school, studying, and basically her life.

So she did what any girl would do; She started writing and recording songs out of her bedroom. Armed with not much more than a fancy computer, a spiffy program, a sweet keyboard/synth, a plethora of experiences to draw from, and a crappy mic, she has taken the music world by storm with her raw, natural talent.

Sarah Fridrich

Sarah's complicated musical history comes across in tracks like "Family and Side Arms," with such a cohesive and expressive structure that the unsteady meters and unusual harmonies glide well below one's prog-pop radar. Maybe this has something to do with Sarah describing herself as a "wanna-be drummer," approaching the piano like a percussionist, often playing three different syncopated rhythms with her hands and voice, but staying locked in. And it's the subtle moments, like the half-step harmony in the climax of "Hearts Intact," that fully signify Ms. Fridrich's artful mediation between the soulful and the technical.
