Founded in Tom and Anthony Aquino’s basement in 2015, The Wayward Strangers quickly developed chemistry and began developing their first EP. With deep chilling verses and catchy exciting choruses, the crowd always seems to come alive.
Taking inspiration from Kings of Leon, Neon Trees, and the Foo Fighters while always keeping the band's roots of Jazz involved, The Wayward Strangers leave the crowd with songs to hum long after they have left the venue. The Wayward Strangers blend an electrifying guitar and keyboard that gives a backdrop to bone-chilling bass fills and perfectly placed drums.
These all come together to marry the heartfelt vocals that will have the crowd always wanting more. Having started off playing house parties, The Wayward Strangers have graduated to venues such as the Studio at Webster Hall, The Delancey, The Westchester Performing Arts Center.

“You can’t rush your life- you only have one chance to live it”— Peri El
Sometimes, when life knocks you off your balance, you write a song about it. For Peri El, it happened enough times out of the blue that she ended up naming her debut EP based on the phenomenon. Based in Boston, originally from Baltimore, Peri pairs her powerful voice with her unique compositions and arrangements in her upcoming Shades of Blue EP. With this release and an upcoming tour to support it, Peri is poised for big things in 2020.
Peri was born a true storyteller, and she tells her stories through song. Singing since the age of two, she always preferred making up her own stories and singing them rather than reading anyone else’s. After seeing her first Broadway show at age four, Peri knew that she had to pursue a career in music and has been working hard at developing her craft ever since.
What Peri loves so much about music is its power to make people happy, helping spread change and putting positive messages out into the world. She channels her vulnerability and uses that to share her personal experiences throughout her own musical output. Combining these elements make Peri a truly gifted storyteller. Her formidable voice, paired alongside jazz elements made pop, make her songs stand out.
Her approach to songwriting and production are classic, eschewing autotune and using real instruments played by talented musicians. It’s a refreshing take in this modern age, more analog than digital. But Peri’s uniqueness lies in her power to take this concept and also push the boundaries of pop music, resulting in songs that easily combine traditional song structures with playful yet surprising moments. It’s a powerhouse collection of songs that leaves the listener feeling more determined and energetic.
