Neha's music has that nostalgic quality to it, one that will have you feeling like you're sitting in a Parisian street café sipping a glass of champagne. Her arrangements are thoughtful and complex, and her sumptuous powerhouse of a voice will leave you awed at the 5'2 framed young Indian woman. A gifted singer, composer & pianist, Neha’s style can be characterized as a smorgasbord of musical personalities. She cites influences such as Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, Sam Cooke, Dinah Washington, and Carmen MacRae, to name a few. While definitely rooted in jazz, elements of folk, blues, pop and her mother's classical indian musical background also permeate. Neha, a recent recipient of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest finalist award for her original song 'The Willow Tree,' released her debut album in January 2014, "The Dreamer." She currently resides in Brooklyn, NY where she teaches on the faculty at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music in Park Slope and at the Jalopy Theater and Music School in Red Hook.

11 The Met
The Met is a three piece rock n' roll band from Brooklyn, New York. Dejected descendants of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, incongruent cousins of TheVelvet Underground, we play a brand of music that is seldom heard in the night clubs or on the airwaves. It's like a conversation, jazz with a backbeat, a trip through the ancestral picture gallery of your dreams. We don't really know of a scene that we'd like to be a part of, or what clothes we'd like to wear. We're too distracted by one manic obsession. Even today, after all the genres that have cruised up the Infobahn, we are still willing to cling to what we know to be true: Rock n' Roll. It feels good? Do it. It might sound a bit naive. Well, that's electric music for you, you're flying without a license. Over the edge, on the verge, love us or hate us - this is our music.
