Singer/songwriter and pianist David Thorne Scotts new CD Hopeful Romantic is a sexy jazz/pop confection of smoky jazz vocals, bold rock piano anthems, effervescent pop and moody hip-hop musings. Deep musicianship and creativity born of years of jazz explorations combine with youthful iconoclasm and a rock aesthetic to give music-lovers a delightful surprise.
Agachiko is a band populated by veteran musicians who have pared their playing down to the essentials, all energy focused on bringing the emotional reality of the songs to life. Featuring Gabrielle's gripping, soulful and technically spot-on voice and presence, the band sports the unique horn section of flute, trumpet and tenor sax, along with classic hollow-body jazz guitar, acoustic bass and drums. The sound can be understated and delicate, bluesy and brash, or full and lush.

"Playing in nearly every possible type of band from jazz, to rock, R&B, and show music for the past 30 years has given Boston area bass player Mark Snyder a pretty broad spectrum of musical experience to choose from. He draws from all of that with his band The Mark Snyder Quartet, a groovy combo of rocking guitars, drums, sax, and flute that digs deep into old standards, modern jazz classics, and funky originals..." - The Boston Globe
