Aaron Rizzo
Aaron Rizzo
Aaron Rizzo is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and recording engineer born and raised in Rochester, NY. Self recorded, mixed and produced, Aaron Rizzo's debut album "Blck Tee Shrt" hit stores on January 15th, 2017. Aaron Rizzo studies the art of music recording under the direction of Alex Perialas and Michael Caporizzo. Influences range from John Mayer to BJ The Chicago Kid, as he pays respects to genres such as blues, rock, R&B, pop and hip-hop.

Aaron Rizzo began his musical career playing in various rock, blues and jazz bands, later graduating into a pursuit of a solo career. Rizzo began playing guitar at the age of nine, later to hunt mastery in other instruments including drums, bass, piano and voice. Aaron Rizzo draws much of his influence not from guitar players, but drummers. Figures like Steve Jordan, Mike Miley and Carter Beauford all have made their way into Rizzo's musical works.
Lazy Bones
Lazy Bones
Fronted by songwriters/multi instrumentalists Sam Stein and Brendan Olivieri, Lazy Bones was formed in 2017 in the strange and erratic upstate New York town of Ithaca. Indeed, the band’s music is quite erratic as well. Ranging from the sunny, shimmering Indie-pop of Take it Back and Existential Crisis to the hectic melancholy of Restless Sleeper, Lazy Bones’ sound draws on a wide variety of influences (MBV, Alvvays, Real Estate, and UMO to name a few) and can be difficult to categorize- though it is distinctly their own. The band found their footing playing DIY venues and house parties around town and was soon being asked to open for bigger acts passing through including Diet Cig, Vundabar, Wolf Parade, and Active Bird Community.
In early 2018, shortly after releasing Take it Back in the Fall, Lazy Bones embarked on their first tour of the East Coast and Midwest circuit. Captivated by their wonderful and bizarre experiences performing in basements and sleeping on strangers’ couches, the trio returned with a renewed vigor to create. It was then that the band recorded their second single, Existential Crisis, which was released in March 2018 and received recognition as one of Spotify’s 150 freshest finds of the year. The band took a hiatus that Summer, during which Stein found himself living in near isolation in a small town near Woodstock, where in loneliness he experienced a creative resurgence, writing much of the material for Lazy Bones’ upcoming album, including Restless Sleeper.
Sam Stein and drummer Caleb Matheson record, mix, and produce all of Lazy Bones’ music themselves with a neuroticism that has lead to lush, well crafted studio creations the likes of which are rare for a group still in its infancy. Lazy Bones is going on a second tour in early 2019, and expects to release their first full-length project the following Spring.
Butter
Butter
Formed in March 2016 by guitarist Nicky Young and Jonah Bobo, Butter has made it’s mission to bring funky music to as many people as they could. From the first rehearsal, the whole band knew that this group could be something special. Since then, Butter has played several events on and off the Ithaca College campus, growing as a unit and delivering an increasingly exciting show for their audiences.
