Lyle Divinsky made his living in the New York City subways for over 5 years. While singing underground by day and above ground by night, he slowly crafted his self-released album, Uneven Floors, which launched him into ears around the globe – reaching #2 on the UK Soul Charts and radio stations in every continent.
Within weeks… he was picked up by the Colorado funk powerhouse, The Motet, which took him to some of the biggest stages and festivals in the country, from Red Rocks and Madison Square Garden to the legendary Tipitina’s in New Orleans and The Fillmore in San Francisco. He truly took his music from Subways to Stadiums.
When the world shut down, it gave us all time to pause and reflect upon who we are, what drives us… to recognize the complexities of this world and what it is to live in it. This drove Lyle into one of the most prolific creative periods of his life. The only thing… none of it was in the funk idiom, so the decision had to be made. After 5 years, 2 studio albums, 2 live albums, over 600 shows and over 10 million streams with The Motet, it was time to get back to his journey.
That journey has led us here. Lyle is rolling out 1 song every month in 2023, coalescing into a 4-Chapter Album Experience: Seasons.

The Amarantos Quartet blends classical training with their experiences and tastes for music beyond the classical canon. From Haydn to Piazzolla to Zappa, all four members of Amarantos believe in showcasing the limitless musical possibilities for a string quartet. Along with performing a wide range of musical genres, the group also seeks to bring their music out of the traditional concert hall and into venues where classical string players can reach new audiences.
Since coming together in Portland, Maine in 2013, the group has performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon twice, once with pop artist Halsey and again with St.Vincent; on Sofar Sounds Maine on their own, and again as guests of artist Sara Hallie Richardson; at the TEDxDirigo Mavericks and Misfits; on The Cold River Radio Show; and also regularly throughout Maine and the greater Portland area on their own and in collaboration with many other artists.
