Kyle Weber – vocals, electric guitar
Bryan Weber – vocals, acoustic guitar
Neha Jiwrajka – vocals, piano, ukulele
“Poetically pop and artfully serene”, Everything Turned To Color is the unlikely but serendipitous musical partnership between veteran songwriters Bryan and Kyle Weber and Neha Jiwrajka.
Graduates of New York University, brothers Bryan and Kyle began their musical careers as leaders of the Alternative Rock band ZELAZOWA, releasing three full-length albums, touring the world from 2006-2009, and founding the DIY tour booking website IndieOnTheMove.com.
Neha Jiwrajka (whose mother is a classically trained Hindustani singer) worked at tech giant Google in San Francisco, CA before leaving the company to pursue a masters degree in Jazz vocal performance at The New England Conservatory of Music. A classically trained pianist in her own right, Neha released her first solo record “The Dreamer” during her time in Boston, eventually relocating to NYC after graduation.
It was in the lobby of their Brooklyn apartment building that Bryan first met Neha, the new neighbor that apparently didn’t mind his kids running, screaming, and climbing all over the lobby furniture. The chance encounter quickly turned into regular song workshopping sessions, which inevitably included Bryan’s longtime songwriting partner Kyle on lead guitar.
After releasing three albums of original contemporary folk music, singer/songwriter Emily Mure shines a light on her influences — as well as her unique, classically-influenced arrangements — with Sad Songs and Waltzes.
A six-track EP of reimagined cover songs, Sad Songs and Waltzes finds Mure putting her own stamp on material originally performed by some of her favorite artists. Tracks from the EP will be released as a string of singles this summer, while the full project will officially hit stores September 13th.
Raised on New York City’s Roosevelt Island, Emily Mure sharpened her songwriting chops while studying music at Ithaca College and busking on the streets of Galway, Ireland. She later returned to New York, pursuing her songwriting career in the same city that housed her grandfather, musician Billy Mure. Over the course of three acclaimed albums, she has cracked the Top 10 on the Folk DJ Charts, showcased at the International Folk Alliance conference, toured internationally, and seen her music featured on NBC, ABC, and PBS. She’s also made a habit of nodding to those who’ve come before her, adding covers of David Bowie’s “As the World Falls Down” and Cake’s “Mexico” to the original music that fills previous albums. With Sad Songs and Waltzes, she directs her focus toward her influences, while also doubling down on her own ability to transform — and transcend — the sounds that helped inspire her to pursue a career as a songwriter.
