Yani Batteau, Brook Batteau, Sarah Mendelsohn

Yani Batteau

Yani Batteau is a native of Cambridge, MA.. And growing up in the rich folk music town with a family of musicians, she always heard music through out her life. 

For the past  nine years she has brought the familiar folk songs, re - arranging them to a deeper sound and presented them to her audience. 

Yani's clawhammer style banjo picking and rootsy vocals enhance soulful new arrangements of vintage country, traditional folk and her original contemporary tunes.

Brook Batteau

Brook is a singer and a songwriter. His songs are about love and lust and kisses and sliding around and phantoms invited to the cocktail party. He wears his heart on his sleeve with lyrics that emulate real life revelations and mysteries. His voice is masterful, with a full range of sounds, both raw and sophisticated, so you get a little Roy Orbison, a little David Byrne, a little Antony & the Johnsons, a  little Barry White, a little Rufus, both Wainwright and Chaka Khan. He doesn’t pretend to be something he aint and he’ll draw you into a world that certainly and obviously is. Brook grew up in Cambridge, Massachusetts USA with a very musical family. He lives in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts USA.

Sarah Mendelsohn

Sarah Mendelsohn began her professional musical career as one of the founding members and the drummer/singer of a very popular Boston band, Shy Five, an original and eclectic band that played a mixture of reggae/rock/worldbeat.

Then putting aside her drums for a while to slow the pace and raise two kids, she found herself following a new musical direction, singing and writing in the original Americana band, Paved Country. They produced three stellar albums. 

Sarah still wears several musical hats. While playing guitar, singing and writing in her new Boston based band, Mendelsohn (original songs - indie pop/rock, americana, roots, rap, ska), Sarah is also currently playing drums and singing backup in the well loved Bob Marley tribute band, Duppy Conquerors. Additionally she plays mini instruments and sings for kids in a local favorite, Rubber biscuit.
