Annie Hart
Annie Hart
Annie Hart is best known as one-third of Au Revoir Simone, the beloved all-female synth trio that counts David Lynch as a superfan (and also recently appeared on Twin Peaks). But with the eight tracks on her solo debut, Impossible Accomplice (Instant Records, Sept. 15), Annie will emerge as an electrifying artist and producer in her own right.
During the band's hiatus, she has been crafting pop songs on classic synthesizers, with a less-is-more approach, writing and engineering the record on her own in the basement of her Brooklyn home, sneaking sessions in while her children were sleeping. Greatly influenced by the spare synthesizer sounds of Laurie Spiegel and the stripped-down sensibility of artists like Alex Cameron, Annie has embraced her love of meticulously crafting the perfect tone to match the emotion of a song.

In songs such as the first single, "Hard To Be Still" (featured on an episode of Netflix series, Gypsy, starring Naomi Watts), Annie cuts back the layers to reveal a rawer version of the dreamy synth pop her band was famous for forging. Solo, Annie has opened for artists such as M. Ward and Neko Case.
Domino Kirke
Domino Kirke
For Brooklyn-based songwriter/singer Domino Kirke, the entertainment industries have served as a formative part of her existence since childhood. Though she is known both as the daughter of Simon Kirke, drummer for bands including Free and Bad Company, and sister to actresses Jemima and Lola, Domino has forged her own path in music. Heralded by Vogue as a “new kind of triple threat” for her work in music and her role as a mother and a Doula, Domino has held an active place in the New York music scene for well over a decade. A graduate of the prestigious LaGuardia High School’s classical voice and piano programs, Domino signed her first record deal with Andre Levins’ Fun Machine label after being discovered at the historic Joe’s Pub before working with Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele) and Jordan Galland, with whom she formed DOMINO. The prominent indie pop band toured for three years with bands including Lily Allen and Gang of Four and was featured on Lena Dunham’s breakout film “Tiny Furniture.”

After taking time off following the birth of her son in 2009, Domino started her own Doula service, returning to music in 2013 with her first solo EP, titled The Guard, produced by Timo Ellis and Jorge Elbrecht (Ariel Pink, Japanese Breakfast). Domino followed The Guard with her EP “Independent Channel” in 2014, and most recently released her first album “Beyond Waves” in August 2017, produced by Joan Wasser (Joan as Police Woman) and engineered by Daniel Schlett (Modest Mouse, Oberhofer, DIIV). In support of her records, Domino has made appearances at several New York institutions, including Mercury Lounge, Brooklyn Bowl, The Ace Hotel, The Manhattan Inn and more, and will be touring in 2018.
Gussie
