New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Alyson Greenfield official website)
After spending the past couple of years focused on directing the Tinderbox Music
Festival and composing for film and TV, Alyson
Greenfield is finally back on the indie music scene with her new single "Uncharted Places." Greenfield will release the track at the Roc-Elle Records' curated Brooklyn Night Bazaar on May 30th at 8pm, performing alongside Heartsrevolution, Ninjasonik, and Demetra. Greenfield recorded "Uncharted Places" when she was invited into the Converse Rubber Tracks Studio with engineer Alex McKenzie (Doe Paoro), and then mixed the track with Roger
Greenawalt (The Pierces, Rufus
Wainwright). "Uncharted Places" features Greenfield's "eclectic sound" (AM New York) as she single-handedly plays a synthesizer, chord organ, toy piano, floor tom, and snare drum, all while accompanied by beatboxer Shane Maux (Duk Duk Goose).
Converse documented Greenfield recording "Uncharted Places" in both their "Track of the Week" and "Oh Hello" video series. Greenfield was also featured in the Converse Rubber Tracks "First Year Highlights" video alongside Theophilus London, Ra Ra Riot, and more.
The past year has been a busy one for Greenfield. When WNYC featured her music on their Soundcheck program Film Director
Michael Carr heard it and approached her to score the feature film The American Templars. In addition to scoring The American Templars, Greenfield also had placements on Lifetime's hit TV series Dance Moms and in the film SuperSleuths, which premiered at the 2014 SXSW Film Festival. Greenfield also formed a new synth-pop side project, Polyvox, with collaborator Joe McGinty (Psychadelic Furs, The Ramones). Polyvox gained You Tube attention for the single/video, "Get on The Bus" which was commissioned by Electroharmonix to introduce the new 8-step program. Additional highlights of Greenfield's past year include becoming a regular at McGinty's long-running and beloved Loser's Lounge series at Joe's Pub, and a featured performer/collaborator at the 4th Annual Brooklyn Rock Lottery alongside band members of Oneida, Bad Girlfriend, Superhuman Happiness, and Rainer Maria.
"This year has really been incredible and has opened my eyes to new facets of what it is to be a musician, composer, performer, and collaborator," Greenfield says. "I am so excited to finally be releasing 'Uncharted Places' and I'm also very excited about the new direction my live performance is taking. With the help of collaborators Interroben and Nate Morgan
(Papertwin, Camp Ground) we are able to produce a more dancey vibe, which I hope translates into a more communal and vibrant experience."
