About the event

Atomic Tom

Hailing from Brooklyn during a revitalization of the New York rock scene, Atomic Tom grew up surrounded by indie giants Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Strokes. Atomic Tom crafted their inaugural album, titled The Moment, in the confines of a third-floor Brooklyn apartment with mics in the bathtub and amps piled high in the bedroom closet while fending off noise complaints and a generous detective or two.

After selling out iconic New York clubs, Atomic Tom signed with Republic Records and Sony/ATV. After their album release was delayed, Atomic Tom took their career back by filming their iPhone performance of “Take Me Out” on the New York B Train and their performance racked up 2 million views in less than a week. The stunt propelled Atomic Tom on a year-long tornado that included performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, George Lopez Tonight!, Rachel Ray, CNN, E!.

Atomic Tom followed up their first viral single with a headlining US tour and their cover of Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me”. The release was included in the 80’s throwback film “Take Me Home Tonight” and was accompanied by a viral music video featuring Anna Faris, Teresa Palmer, Dan Fogler and Topher Grace.

After three years and a departure from Republic Records, ERA was independently released in 2015. Their single “Someone to Love” was featured on the New Music Friday, Alt-Good and Chill playlists. Atomic Tom is back in the studio carving out LP #3 which will drop in 2024.

Ryan Wright

Virginia-based singer/songwriter/producer Ryan Wright creates songs that don’t make sense on paper–an ethereal voice singing angsty lyrics over confectionary synth-driven hooks. Her lyrics–at times profane, often tongue-in-cheek, occasionally devastating–reveal a searing wit and a sensitive heart. Her arresting voice embodies the kind of teenage heartache that is deeply personal and yet universal and timeless.
Her influences range from the classic (The Cars, Roy Orbison, The Smiths) to the current (The Killers, The 1975, Lana Del Rey) to the local musicians she grew up playing with alongside her dad. Her indie dream-pop has been compared to Lorde, Lennon Stella and The Japanese House.
Her undeniably relatable lyrics and dreamy production take the mundane—everything from friend drama to being ghosted by boys to dealing with anxiety—and transform it into the sublime. Wright confides, “My songs are essentially my bottled-up emotions all being poured out in a way that makes them sound surreal. I wanted to make these very relatable experiences sound unfamiliar and strange–almost like listening to a soundtrack from an alternate reality.”
