Since moving to Nashville to start their music career in 2012, Becca Mancari has been lauded for their dextrous songwriting and prodigious guitar playing. Their sophomore album The Greatest Part, released in 2020, was an indie rock opus that garnered acclaim from The New York Times, NPR, and more. After its release, however, Mancari was despairing. An illness in their family, coupled with a realization that their alcohol dependency had become untenable, led Mancari to begin the hard work of taking ownership of their existence by mending broken relationships and investing in their mental health.
Bloomsday is the Brooklyn based project of songwriter Iris James Garrison (they/them). The band self-produced and released their debut LP Place To Land, on Bayonet Records in 2022. Place to Land, which has folk and shoegaze influences, follows Garrison’s experience of isolation while confronting their inner ghosts. The dialogue between the guitars and vocals is intended to convey their internal conversations. Other Bloomsday releases include their single “Jersey Soccer” for Hardly Art’s Anniversary Series, and an alternative version of “Phase” released this year on Bayonet Records. Bloomsday will release their second LP in the coming year.
