2018 has brought with it our newest member, bass player extraordinaire, Brian Fontana, hailing from Staten Island. We are thrilled to welcome him to the Ithaca area and to The Uncommons. Take note of Brian’s sweet grooves where he adds his own personal flair. In his first full gig with The Uncommons (at Americana Vineyards in November), he added a killer bass solo to an original tune in our second set.
We are scheduled to head to New Vine Records early in 2019 to work on an EP of some of our latest songs. Stay tuned for the recordings!

2017 has been a fab year for song generation! While some of these started back in 2016, particularly our politically charged Time to Fight Part I & II, we are working on a few more so that we can hit the recording studio again in 2018. We taken inspiration from Hamilton, TED talks, the election, and as always, lost love. Stay tuned!
