THIS BLISS - We are This Bliss, a husband and wife team (Nick Zampiello and Jess Baggia) alongside our friend and longtime collaborator, Tom Maroon.

Our take on electronic music is evocative and content-driven, with modern and throwback elements, featuring our love for analog synthesizers and drum machines with an inherent pop sensibility.

In partnership with Mint 400 Records, we've released four records to date, with a new record due out this fall.

In addition, we own an art gallery and recording studio in Somerville, MA.

The New Alliance Gallery is a community of visual and music artists representing the enduring presence of local art despite ongoing city development displacement.

RUBY GROVE - Boston-based band Ruby Grove (2022- current) is an indie alternative musical project rooted in trip-hop and neo-soul grooves, informed by lofi hip-hop, electronica, rock, and world music.

Ruby Grove’s core driving force is to soothe anxious hearts and minds during the post-pandemic era, create an alternatively funky, soulful, and mystical atmosphere, and aim for “the formation of new genres through multi-genre synthesis madness”.

Lead singer and keyboardist Melissa Nilles brings an extensive musical background to Ruby Grove from years of fronting indie bands in New York, California, Japan, and Massachusetts (including Boston’s notable art/alternative rock project Miele).

Nilles’s vocal style was described by the Boston Survival Guide as “travelling effortlessly through many moods…forceful and determined, melancholy and dreamy, exotic and magical”.

Nilles recruited bassist and backup vocalist Cedric Lamour from previous mutual project Miele, and the two met drummer Sage Gibbons (Funky Toona).

CHRISTINA WARD - Philly burbs-based ethereal indie rock songstress, Christina Ward, is similar in spirit to artists like Julia Holter and Cate Le Bon.

Ward's music is dreamlike yet emotive on her recent Mint 400 Records release, Calendar.
