More about the acts.
First up is Andy Cook.
A former hockey player from the Midwest, Cook found new worlds opening up to him as he toured his first records across the country. It was a stop in New York, folded into a tiny Brooklyn bedroom, that helped to crystallize his voice into something he was finally ready to share. This city of dreams—and of harsh realities—was the catalyst Cook needed to push forward with his own dreams in the midst of seemingly unending uncertainty.
Cook summarizes his new record, "I’ll Be Fine," this way: “These songs are for everyone who’s trying to take our voice from inside and bring it out. It’s scary, but we’ve got to say what we want if we’re going to be heard.”
"I’ll Be Fine" is out June 12 and is Cook’s second release on Good Eye Records.
Then, Mariah Mercedez and Megan Mahoney.
Musicians Mariah Mercedez and Megan Mahoney first banded together in 2018 under the foggy blue lights of Minneapolis rock venue, 7th St. Entry. This power duo performs raw, willful grooves laced with tempting hooks that are guaranteed to heat up and hypnotize audiences. Since their first meeting, Mercedez and Mahoney have continued to create a sound that is captivating and new. Always evolving, expanding, and unfolding, this duo harnesses a soul of perpetual versatility and readiness with a sound that is far from its adolescence, but never ages.
When this is all over, you'll need to go out. And also re-introduce yourself to your friends. asembl makes doing both better. Check it out for all the best things going on and the easiest way to gather a group to do those things with.
