Digital Press Conference Featured Artists

Cyber PR would like to send out a BIG thank you for all those who attended our 5th Digital Press Conference.

The event was a smashing success and you made that possible!

We've uploaded some great photos from yesterday's event to our Facebook Page please go check them out!

Thank you to all of our clients that participated.

Lauren O’Brien – Astoria, NY
Genre: Rock, Alternative, Spoken Word

The words come through your speakers. Tense words. Sharp words. Hypnotic words. Words couched in grinding guitars and thudding drums, words thick with emotional desperation that also reveal the strangely paradoxical beauty in suffering; the diamonds in the cave, waiting to be mined. The words are those of Lauren O’Brien, one of the most exciting young poet-performers on the scene today.

Cady Finlayson & Vita Tanga – Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Irish, Roots, World, Electronica, Folk, Celtic

Cady Finlayson is a spirited Irish fiddler, with a global twist. And while she’s best known for her Irish music expertise, Finlayson’s latest release, Electric Green, her collaboration with French guitarist Vita Tanga, is sure to expand her audience well beyond traditional Celtic boundaries.

Miles – Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Pop, Soul, Folk, Indie Rock

Miles’ music is all about forward motion, a factor amply illustrated by the blurred car lights pictured on the band’s first full-length, As Fast as You Can. And much like those vehicles on that light-streaked highway, Miles is on a quest to illuminate dark paths, in search of the bright side of the road. The track “All Along expresses this luminous desire perfectly.

Derek and the Darling – New York, NY

Genre: Pop, Rock, Alternative, Electronica, AltRock

Born from scene work on the Upright Citizens Brigade stage, Derek and the Darling formed an electro-pop band in late 2009 instead of an improv troupe because it was “way less nerdy. “Rockface the debut EP, arrives April 27, 2010

Lily Sparks - New York, NY

Genre: Rock, Blues, Classic Rock

Forged in the crucible of the New York rock scene, Lily Sparks has emerged with a unique voice. Flanked by glitter guitars that alternate between crunch and wail, the singer’s got a set of pipes that can go from fragility to fury in a heartbeat. These girls play hard-rocking, toe-tapping songs that’ll make you want to shout and sing along.

David Homyk

Genre: Pop, SingerSongwriter

Singer, writer, and producer all in one, David Homyk’s music can be described as a blend of Maroon 5 and James Blunt, often mixed with a Timbaland-style production. David is known to put on high energy live performances, juggling piano, guitar, and various instruments on stage. A producer by trade, David has made recordings for many well known artists including Beyoncé and her sister Solange.
