ONLYNESS is the self-titled debut and latest installment from upstate New York based singer-songwriter Rick Spataro. Soft pillowy snare drum and muted bass guitar contrasts with layers of vocals, electric and acoustic guitar, upright piano, analog synthesizers and other electronics. Spataro’s approach to writing his own songs emphasizes melody and lyric, with a production and orchestration style that aims to support the underlying song, rather than dress it up or drown it out. The words are plain and direct, equal parts sarcastic and sincere.

Burly with Greg Farley (of The Felice Brothers)

Burly with Greg Farley (of The Felice Brothers)

BURLY is a five-piece, vibraphone led band that plays heavy music quietly. They are based in Troy, NY. Members include: Ryan Stewart, Adam Muro, Ian Nichols, Seth Tillinghast, Richard Nolan Jr.

GREG FARLEY (of The Felice Brothers) was born in Highland, NY, a small town on the Hudson River. In 2006 he began touring out of his car playing house shows, small bars, and on the street, burning CDs, wrapping them in road maps, stamping GF on the front. From the east coast to California and back, he saw landscapes and cities that most of the people he grew up with never got the chance to see.

Upon returning he was lent a fiddle by a good friend, took up learning some old time, and joined The Felice Brothers. He played with them for the next ten years, working other jobs in his down time: He mucked stalls on a horse farm, waited tables at a vegetarian restaurant, worked as a carpenter, arborist, woodworker, and sawmill operator. 

Through it all, his music was the only constant. Now, striking out on his own with his debut LP Taker Easy, recorded in Stanfordville, NY with producer/engineer Nick Kinsey, he mines his own history for stories of class struggle, nature, love, pain, work, and family, all set against the backdrop of the northeast. End of the day, Farley has nothing to lose and something to say, and he’s saying it from the gut.

Troy Night Out w/ Aurora Birch

Join us during June's Troy Night Out for another magical evening full of live music, tasty beverages and good times with good friends on the back patio at SMCo!

Boston-based AURORA BIRCH will be joining us along with violinist/vocalist AISHA BURNS! Coffee, beer and snacks all night! Suggested donation of $5-$10 for musicians.

Aurora Birch makes music in Boston, MA. An incorrigible tinkerer, Aurora wears many hats in her music: songwriter, producer, arranger, composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and performer, most notably. The result, as evinced by her debut record, Brightness, is cathartically bewitching and contemplative folk-rock, gracefully bridging genre divides to inhabit an ethereal space of dreamy curiosity.

Aisha Burns, born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, and currently residing in Beverly, Massachusetts, is an exceptional violinist, vocalist and songwriter. She began playing violin when she was 10 years old, and has been touring and recording since 2006. Soon after moving to Austin in 2005, she gained her start with folk-rock outfit Alex Dupree and the Trapdoor Band, and joined the instrumental ensemble Balmorhea on violin in 2007. After years of secret singing, she released her solo debut Life in the Midwater in 2013. Called "twisting, ethereal...arresting" by Dazed Magazine, and praised for its "delicate intimacy" by NPR, Life in the Midwater explored mortality and relationships with candor and wisdom.

Ben Cosgrove with Lone Phone Booth

Join us on the SMCo. patio for an evening of experimental ambient noise as we welcome Ben Cosgrove, a traveling composer, pianist, and multi-instrumentalist from New England, joined byAlbany-based Lone Phone Booth (solo).

BEN COSGROVE
Ben's music straddles a line between folk and classical music. His “electric and exhilarating” live performances are at once dazzling and intimate: music that has been described as “stunning” and as “compelling and powerful,” all presented with warmth and honesty. For his latest release, 2017′s Salt, he pulled back from the expansiveness of his previous work, exploring feelings of ambiguity and ungroundedness by writing quiet, shifting, and intense music for piano and guitar inspired by estuaries, fault lines, tidal rivers, and other landscapes in flux.

The current High Falls line up has Abbie Krinsky from Hello Floridads providing percussion, and multi-instrumentalist Justin Birmingham from the band Buddha Baby on bass. High Falls is currently based out of Brooklyn and plays shows as often as possible (usually to his cat).

Scandinavian Saturday: COFFEE COLLECTIVE

We couldn't be more excited to feature The Coffee Collective from Denmark as this month's Scandinavian Saturday roaster! We've been huge fans for years, in fact one of the places we visited before opening SMCo. was Coffee Collective during a trip to Copenhagen. Not only do we love their friendly yet serious approach to service, we love their farmer-forward initiatives and deep supply chain respect. Coffee Collective is one of the first, if only companies to include the price paid to the farmer on the front of the bags. This transparency is refreshing and is an indicator of their commitment to extreme excellence.

About Scandinavian Coffee:
Modern Scandinavian roasters are renowned for their careful, nuanced approach to roasting with the goal of highlighting the delicately complex attributes of each coffee. This typically lighter approach is benefited by access to the highest quality green coffee – a privilege enjoyed in Scandinavia for some time thanks to early advancements in sourcing.

ABOUT HAYLEY  >  www.hayleysabellamusic.com
New England based musician, Hayley Sabella, brings you songs with gripping melodies & intimate lyrics that explore the human condition through nature. Her voice is “honeyed, but with a mild rasp,” and dances over a finger-picked guitar, usually a 1965 hollow-body Gibson, which is a signature sound in her live performance & her new album, Forgive the Birds. Sabella will be taking this Boston-based, homegrown record on the road in the Spring of 2018.

ABOUT BEAR GRASS  >  www.beargrasssongs.com
Bear Grass attracts listeners with the quirky songs of Katie Hammon. Her sultry pipes leave them devastated, but the band’s blend of folk, rock, and homespun trip-hop soothes their wounds. Drawing on influences like Laura Veirs and Wye Oak, the music is sometimes subtly dark, but always thoroughly captivating and melodic.

Scandinavian Saturday: TALOR + JØRGEN

Join us on January 20th for Scandinavian Saturday! This is a special series featuring a different Scandinavian coffee roaster on the third Saturday of every month! We’re super excited to bring in some exceptional coffees which until now have not been available in the Capital Region.

This month’s featured roaster: TALOR + JØRGEN, Oslo

About Talor + Jørgen:
Talor & Jørgen are an Oslo-based roasting company whose friendly approach to specialty coffee is extremely fun and infectious. From the colorful + clever illustrations on their revolutionary retail packaging to the neon streaks that adorn their roastery's walls, these folks veer a bit bolder than the typically austere Nordic presence. Looking under the "fun" exterior, we find their values and standards for coffee sourcing and production to be impeccable and anything BUT frivolous. We look forward to sharing two of T+J's delicious roasts brewed via v60 pourover.

About Scandinavian Coffee:
Modern Scandinavian roasters are renowned for their careful, nuanced approach to roasting with the goal of highlighting the delicately complex attributes of each coffee. This typically lighter approach is benefited by access to the highest quality green coffee – a privilege enjoyed in Scandinavia for some time thanks to early advancements in sourcing.

Coffees for Scandinavian Saturday are sourced and distributed by Kaffebox, one of our favorite new monthly subscription services. We have partnered up with KaffeBox to offer an exclusive referral link which allows folks to try the service for 25% off the first month.
