JASON RABINOWITZ
A BRIEF SMILE

Born and bred in New York, Jason Rabinowitz is a consummate musician/performer. He is gifted on both the theater and music stages as well as in the recording studio. His deft compositions, attentive to melody, are the kind that give rock critics much-welcomed pause. With the raised eyebrow of a svengali, impassioned snarl, or affable smile, Jason's stage presence is immediate and engaging.

Jason is the leader of one of NYC's best undiscovered bands The Bloodsugars whom the Boston Phoenix calls "Kooky and fun. The Bloodsugars' synthy garage rock borrows from the best of music's past. With a live show full of dance rock anthems, you are sure to be bouncing right along with the band!"

A Brief Smile is a young, NYC based five-piece rock band that has enjoyed an explosive start on the scene largely fueled by copious blog buzz. Underrated magazine said "A lot of times young bands stumble through their early days of trying to be creative, but not A Brief Smile, they have a vision. They seem to be what everyone needs right now. Fresh, talented musicians that aren't trying to do what's 'in' right now or attempting to recycled some 80's act. The new songs are incredibly meticulous and the old ones transformed to sound original.” The writer of the Sit Down Stand Up blog described them as "a little Strokes, a little Morrissey, a little Radiohead and a little Elliott Smith if he rocked out more, wrapped into a neat little original package."
