Make Some Noise lineup:
Saman is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and songwriter from Washington D.C. She is now based in New York. Her music aims to make people feel a lot of feelings.
Liberty Zoo is an eclectic, funk-pop band made up of five rowdy youngsters. Their boppin’ music is composed of looped vocals, tap dancing, rap, groovy guitar riffs, synth magic, and funky flute licks. Liberty Zoo is establishing itself as a rising band in New York, having opened for such artists as Alex Calder and most recently Big Sean at Columbia University’s Bacchanal festival. They will be releasing their debut EP in the fall and will be playing shows around the city all summer. To fully appreciate their fun-loving, dance-y energy, see them jam out live!
Luz Pinos is an Ecuadorian singer/composer based in NYC. Her music is a mixture of South American traditional rhythms put together into an improvisational personal style.
Born in Indiana and currently based in Brooklyn, Sarah recently released her debut indie-pop album “Stupid Things," which was featured on NPR’s “Morning Edition” and ranked #17 on the iTunes pop charts. Her album has been covered by over thirty publications, including Huffington Post, Seventeen Magazine, and Refinery29. Sarah is a proud graduate of Barnard College, where she studied playwriting and, at one time, danced around as college mascot, Millie the Bear (it was the best day of her life).
Adi Meyerson is an Israeli-raised Bassist and composer. She received her first musical training at the prestigious "Charles A. Smith Jerusalem High School of the Arts" on bass guitar at the age of 14. After graduating from high school, she discovered a love for Jazz and started playing the upright bass.
In August 2012, Adi relocated To New York to pursue her studies at "The New School for Jazz and Contemporary music", where she graduated from in 2014. In a brief period of 2.5 years, Adi has already started to make an impact on the NYC jazz scene and earn her title as an up and coming young talent.
