Best Original Song! We Are The Strange Ones

The Repressions are so very honored to have won Best Original Song in the February Vegan Music Makers celebration, for their song “We Are the Strange Ones!”

Vegan Music Makers is a wonderful uplifting community founded in California by Geno Maurillo and Michael Blow. Find and follow the group on Facebook, and add these other artists to your playlist!

This means a lot, voted from a group of musical artists from all genres and walks of life, with the one common thread being a respect for animals and their freedom. Good company and very good music!

Friday January 31st at The Dolphin 🐬! Music from the Forest, the City and the Sea…

This Friday is going to be very special… The Dolphin Bookshop has a magic that surrounds you before you realize it. The Repressions will  play in the stage/ seating/cafe area, with a beautiful bookshop to the right, more books and toys to the left, original art and color all around… It is not just “one” kind of place, and therefore inspiring and imperceptibly comfortable. No cover charge and all ages are welcome… The music begins at 7pm!

New Year, New Bright Lights Video

Last year Nate and Barbara celebrated New Year’s Eve with merriment and music, and a video for their song Bright Lights.  They decided to make this a tradition, and this year the lyrics are on screen. Bright Lights is a journey of love and change, reconciling our natural selves in the modern world, and leaping into your life even when you cannot see.

Happy New Year Friends. Thank you for being here.

New Memes, Artwork & Comics for You

The Repressions Castle, to the mortal eye may look like a tiny NYC apartment, but it is a one stop art house… too bad the ideas come faster than the time it takes to finish them. Enjoy some new memes, comics and song lyric illustrations…

 

Kingston Animalia Concert & Hudson Valley Vegfest – Photos

What an incredible weekend…. nearly too much to report. Thank you to Rebecca Moore, Hudson Valley Vegfest and all of the incredible volunteers! If you were not able to go this year, start planning for the 2020 fest now!

The Repressions were already fans of Kiirstin Marilyn, Luis Mojica, Amelia Rose Allen, Kneel Cohn, Cyndi Washburn, Bobby Belfry, and Candle Hoax, and then got to share the stage with them last weekend, all in support of The Institute for Animal Happiness! Amazing!
