Sasha Papernik is a songwriter, singer, and conservatory-trained pianist who can sneak a lightning-speed run of notes into a ballad about life that you will probably recognize as your own. And her crew will match her note for note—men from the five boroughs, exiles from the 50 states, who come for the music. Who, perhaps, live for the music. Sasha started the band in 2008, drawing these dedicated musicians into her world on the hooks of songs. Since then the band’s sound has evolved into the unique palette heard on their brand new sophomore album, Love in a Box, released on November 6th, 2010. And it will keep evolving as long as there are untried ways to mix the colors on that palette. The band is dedicated to the spirit of musical communication, collaboration, and pushing the boundaries. Call it Art Pop. Or just call it Art.
