Winner of the 2017 Ameripolitan Music Award for Best Female Rockabilly Artist, and named the “Best Up-And-Coming Band” by Hudson Valley Magazine, Lara Hope and the Ark-Tones are New York’s premier roots rock n’ roll, rockabilly, rhythm & blues outfit. The Ark-Tones are releasing their 2nd full length album, entitled Love You to Life, out August 11th, and they will be hitting the road, spreading the gospel of American music wherever they go. Describing their sound, Hope explained to Rockabilly Online “I would say we are a new take on an old sound. It’s been described as ‘pan-americana’ which means we use many areas of early rock and roots music as a creative launchpad. Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess, because while we appreciate old music, we don’t want to write songs that have already been written.”

Taste the temptation of their sound. Danger*Cakes’ sophomore album, Quarter Life Crisis, has the matured full-bodied sweetness of juvenile delinquency. Their signature brand of “Punk-Infused R&B” has taken a turn towards the musically noir, evoking cinematic overtones of rebellion and unruliness. Their memorable melodies hold true to the humble beginnings of debut album, “Dessert First” and never fail to maintain their toe-tapping lust for that firebrand energy of conviction.
