Des is a Long Island music veteran, bred from the same waters as Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, and Bayside. The 27-year old Bayville resident has recently launched his solo career with an EP titled 'Eighty Six,' featuring the single "Don't You Worry" 'Eighty Six' is a refreshing collection of electro-indie songs: devastatingly catchy melodies mixed with perfectly saturated production.

Mike Desmond first hit the Long Island music scene with Gabriel the Marine (2008-2014), an indie rock band including bassist Tom Costa. The group garnered a large local base and went on to perform nation-wide with bands like Taking Back Sunday, Glassjaw, Jacks Mannequin,and The Dear Hunter, among many others.

Des grew up listening to everything from Elliot Smith to Tears For Fears to Chet Baker; all of which ultimately helped cultivate his new sound. Produced by Chad Copelin (Christina Perry, Third Eye Blind), the Eighty Six EP is filled with an upbeat and relaxed sound similar to Capital Cities or Foster the People.

Des is Mike Desmond (vocals/guitar), Tom Costa (bass/keys), Warren Trunz(drums) and Patrick Fetkowitz (guitar)

The new era is here and Des looks forward to sharing his journey with you.
Hayley Fahey
Hayley Fahey
Hayley Fahey is a singer-songwriter who captivates audiences with her sparkling range and originality. What sets her apart, in addition to her writing and voice, are her live stage performances and the presence she has, exuding energy, confidence and love for the music. When Hayley is on stage, she’s home.

Fahey draws from the many influences of her Washington, D.C. area home. The soulful sound of R&B translates into her passionate vocal performances. Her writing and sound are versatile and inspiring, from her indie-folk vibe to catchy pop hooks that get stuck in your head.

She performs both solo and with her band of seasoned professionals on impressive stages like the 9:30 Club, State Theatre, Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club, Rams Head Live, Strathmore Music Center, The Hamilton, Takoma Park Folk Festival, Project HERA Female Fronted Music Festival, the Blue Plate Special Live Radio Show on WDVX in Knoxville, Tenn, Nationals Park Fairgrounds as well as many large festivals and concert series. Fahey has played alongside other DC-based pros such as Daryl Davis (keyboard player for Chuck Berry) many times at Bethesda Blues and Jazz, Ronnie Newmyer (Newmyer Flyer tribute shows), and has sung the National Anthem for the University of Maryland and the Bowie Baysox.

Fahey has recorded two full length albums, the second of which to be released April 28th, 2018. Her debut album (released in May 2016) attracted praise from industry professionals. The album was produced by her band member, multi-instrumentalist, John Trupp, an accomplished musician, songwriter and native of the D.C. scene. He performed with a nationally touring group that was signed to RYKOdisc, and sold tens of thousands of CDs, and is now helping Hayley on her musical journey. Here are just a few of the many kudos she’s recently received:

“Hayley is the real deal and has both the singing and writing chops to back it. I expect to hear a lot of wonderful things from her going forward and this release shows great promise.” – John Alagia, Multi-Grammy nominated producer (John Mayer, Dave Matthews).

“She’s got it all; the presence, delivery, attitude and raw talent of an artist that’s rocketing her way from an opening act to a headliner on the national concert stage.” – Scott Shuman, Grammy Award winning producer

“Hayley is a brilliant young talent coming up in our vibrant music community. Her music has one foot in the future of popular music while still an air and reverence for the music that has influenced her. From her thoughtful originals to fresh takes on classic tunes, Hayley is an artist to watch in the DC metro music scene.” – Daniel Schwartz, Production Manager & Talent Buyer, The Hamilton
