Big Lazy
Big Lazy - 20 years of Noir and Twang in NYC.

NYC's gritty trio Big Lazy has flourished for 20 years, creating film music and playing it's singular brand of crime jazz and highway twang from dive bars to The Whitney Museum of American Art. Big Lazy founder Stephen Ulrich is the composer for the HBO series Bored to Death.

"Big Lazy, the elegantly gritty instrumental trio led by the extraordinary guitarist Stephen Ulrich…plays stunningly beautiful music that evokes everything from truckers' romps to the haunting film scores of Bernard Hermann." The New Yorker

"The Big Apple Crème de la Crème" Robert Christgau
Book of J
Old worlds collide in Book of J, as musicians Jewlia Eisenberg (Charming Hostess) and Jeremiah Lockwood (The Sway Machinery) take inspiration from the intersection of the sacred and the radical to create hit songs from out of the depths of American psalmody, Yiddish folklore, and international Jewish liturgical traditions.

Eisenberg is a vocalist, recording artist, ethnomusicologist and founder of the Balkan funk-punk band Charming Hostess. Lockwood's band The Sway Machinery mixes 200-year-old cantorial melodies with Afro-pop horn parts and subway blues.
