ALYSON GREENFIELDexperiments with synthesizers, glockenspiels, chord organs, drums, autoharps, string trios, loopers, and beatboxers to create her "eclectic sound" (AM New York), chock-full of "satiating and seductive songs" (LA Examiner). As well as having shared the stage with indie favorites CocoRosie, Nellie McKay, and Lelia Broussard, Greenfield is no stranger to the electro and hip-hop scenes. Future Rock's remix of her song "Understand the Sky" was released on the Chicago-based electronica trio's most recent live album, and the original version of the song currently appears in Josh Stolberg's (Good Luck Chuck, Pirhana 3D) newest feature film Conception. Greenfield's most recent release, Rock Out With Your Glockenspiel Out, an album of hip-hop covers which was named the #2 Covers EP of 2011 by Cover Me has gained media attention, especially for her "re-inventions" (Cover Me) of Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" on a glockenspiel and L.L. Cool J's "Mama Said Knock You Out" on a grand piano, which have led to feature performances at the American Beatboxing Championships, alongside Rahzel, Raaka (Dialted Peoples), and DJ Johnny Juice (Public Enemy). Greenfield was named "One of the 5 CMJ 2011 Acts You Should Have Seen" by The Faster Times, an "Upcoming NYC Artist" by NYC's The Deli, and was one of the first 5 artists chosen to record at Converse's Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn. Greenfield's engaging and charismatic live performances where "the stage becomes her playroom" (Venus Zine), have been called "amazing...funny, spontaneous" (Thy Daily Noise) and "mesmerizing to watch" (Music Crush Girl). In addition to being a songwriter and performer, Greenfield is also the Founder/Director of the Tinderbox Music Festival, an annual NYC-based event showcasing emerging female musicians, and giving back to NYC non-profits empowering young women through the arts. The festival has grown quickly since its formation in 2010, garnering press from The New York Times, Time Out New York, Billboard, Glamour, and more.
