John Isaac Watters chronicles a tangled love affair on 'Past Hope Now'

John Isaac Watters fills his stories with persuasive emotions. The folk crooner has raised his ambitions even further with the release of his latest EP, Past Hope Now, a conceptual piece that he's now turned into a poetic short film about a relationship challenged by seemingly unsparing circumstances. Watters utilizes striking visual motifs to capture the story's essence, utilizing his spacious, acoustic-guitar driven musings in pure and unfiltered form. His mini-song suite careens with artful finesse, elevating his quivering voice with an accented eccentricity that's rightfully his.

Folk-pop trio The Happy Fits lands Pianos residency in December

Charming NYC trio The Happy Fits plays an intriguing blend of folk, vintage pop and funk/soul. Their sound is sparse but - as you can hear in single "While You Fade Away" (streaming below) - it can be pretty punchy. If the bass in that track sounds a little bright to you, it's because it's not actually a bass, but a plucked cello, which impersonates the other four string instruments in all their songs. The young group has a fun live show and simple but sophisticated melodies everybody can relate to, and these are certainly two of the reasons why Pianos decided to give them a residency during the month of December. The next live performance will be on December 12, if you dig it, do not miss it!
