After much deliberation, endless bickering and a potential injunction sparked by a fist fight between two panelists (one of which has since left our party to devote his twilight to bohemianism), a winner has been selected from the efficacious six finalists and the name is Streetlab.  Not your ordinary detergent, Streelab’s sheen is brighter than its rivals, and most certainly a serendipitous discovery in an event like Breaking the Band.  Armed with retro-rock-gressive samples and rubber gloves, the electro-duo have been cleaning house with filthy remixes that will make any alpha male put the toilet seat down.  Daz rite.  New York City has a new Sherriff in town with an NYSound.  Ladies and paperweights, Streetlab, ay?

Andrew Allen

Since the release of his debut album, “The Living Room Sessions”, in April 2008, Andrew Allen has toured and played live in more than 200 venues throughout Western Canada and the UK, secured airtime on the UK’s BBC Radio 1 as well as on Canada’s own CBC radio, and, most recently, won Round 1 of The 2009 Singer/Songwriter Awards from We Are Listening.  His winning entry, “Not Loving You”, draws striking resemblance to “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, while other tracks from his setlist gravitate toward the sound and songwriting style of Maroon 5, John Mayer and Jack Johnson.  Congratulations Andrew, we look forward to working with you!
