The Whitewalls - El Corazon Estalla.mp3
The Whitewalls are the latest iteration of guitarist David Lott, bassist Matt Epstein and drummer Josh Bloom. As 3/4 of Licorice, this band of Brooklyn based musicians haunted such famous stages as The Blue Note, The Knitting Factory and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, offering up complex originals, jazz standards and fusion odysseys with their inimitably cohesive and delicate touch. Now as a streamlined trio, The Whitewalls have turned their focus on songcraft, and playing with power.

Licorice - Burlington Jam.mp3
Licorice is a true jam band juggernaut. Featuring Joshua Bloom on drums and vocals, Matthew Epstein on bass, David Lott on lead vocals and guitar, and Chad Dinzes on vocals and keyboards, the Licorice sound starts in rock, funk, and reggae but always ends up somewhere in between
