Welcome to the world of Captain Sunbeam. The brainchild of brothers Malachy and Conor Duffy, they released their debut album, Captain Sunbeam, Act I: The Compass of Ra, in early 2020. A space-opera set in the galaxy of the Seven Jewels, their songs capture the heart-rending correspondence between enigmatic Captain Sunbeam and space lumberjack Julian Afterjoy.

The music: Raw, galactic, space-opera energy, massive choruses, an intricate web of storytelling and lyrical prowess. Drawing inspiration from Coheed and Cambria, Meat Loaf, and Andrew W.K., their music encompasses prog, pop, punk, and hard rock. Their newest single, Overlight Anthem, was released in December 2023 and will be followed by a new EP, Songs of Orion, recorded at Zippah Studios in Boston. Captain Sunbeam has sold out local shows throughout the Boston area.

The story: The Afterjoy Sequence, a YA fiction trilogy about Julian & Sunbeam’s exploits, is currently in production. In book one, Captain Sunbeam & The Compass of Ra, you will join forces with Julian Afterjoy, Kimmy Starfossil, the Three Dolphin Princes of Taz-Abalone, and Luther Overlight to uncover the reason behind the Lifesun’s demise. You will trek across the entirety of the Seven Jewels, perhaps even venturing into Deep Space to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Captain Sunbeam and his infamous ship – the Lovestar.

Lady Lupine is a Boston based heavy soul band that delivers high energy performances of unique original material. The band creates an engaging live experience by cultivating visceral connections through sound. Fronted by vocalist Christina Lacoste, Lady Lupine draws inspiration from the soul of Amy Winehouse, and the sonic eclecticism of Portishead. Traces of Vulfpeck’s tight, technical funk, and Jimi Hendrix’s fuzz rock grooves can be heard in the band’s sound as well. Christina, guitarist Fran McConville Jr, drummer Josh Cuadra and Bassist Jon Dusoe met in 2010 while performing in a band called The Elements. The four were drawn together by their compatibility as performers, and continued to play music on and off throughout the years.

In 2017, Lady Lupine was formed and began developing material that combines the respective members’ loves of classic soul and more modern, heavy rock. Jon and Josh provide a driving and edgy underlying layer that supports Christina and Fran’s soulful leads. Lady Lupine released their debut EP Trust in October 2019 followed by Extended Plays released in 2021.
