Maybird, Steady Sun, Corbu
Josh Netsky is the singer and principal songwriter of the Brooklyn/Rochester based band Maybird. Along with Sam Snyder, Kurt Johnson and Josh’s brother Adam Netsky the band self-released their debut record, Down and Under, in 2013. The ambitious, independent record caught the ear of producer Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells) who approached the band to sign to his Columbia Records imprint, 30th Century Records. In April of 2016 Maybird released Turning Into Water, an EP that fuses expensive psychedelia with evocative roots rock accents. NPR debuted the video for the song “Looking Back” stating, “It’s a poignant, profoundly emotional ode to childhood, fleeting youth and chasing dreams.” In the Summer of 2016 the band spent time in Nashville, TN working with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys at his home recording studio. The new set of songs is set to be released in June and the band will spend the rest of the year on the road.
Originating in 2011 as a solo project by Dylan Nowik, the Steady Sun EP was recorded that summer in two bedrooms along the Hudson River, exactly 100 miles apart. Steady Sun has since expanded to a five-piece band, combining elements of folk, psychedelic rock and baroque pop.
Steady Sun recorded their debut LP, "Good Evening" from the fall of 2012 through early 2013 in Rose Studios, an enchanted basement owned by the art collective A mini Tribe. The album was released on March 30, 2013, accompanied by a release show at the Studio at Webster Hall.
Steady Sun is currently based out of Manhattan and Brooklyn, where they usually rehearse at Rose Studios.
