Newer Sounds Celebrates 1 Year of Music!
New York, NY - New York guitarist, producer, entrepreneur, (and most importantly, close friend) Aleksi Glick has been producing concerts on a monthly basis in the upper west side of Manhattan for a whole year, all under the title of "Newer Sounds." The exciting concerts have brought much of the poppin' downtown music scene uptown to where much of the music community lives. The Fatum's feel so lucky to have recently begun helping Aleksi with Newer Sounds concerts, and had an amazing time on Saturday at the Newer Sounds 1 Year Anniversary Festival! The festival featured six NYC bands, including The Bailen Brothers and EMEFE, and was packed with very happy people! Year two will promise to be even better, and will also bring in the debut of a Newer Sounds Jazz series, starting in the spring. Stay tuned!
