Under the Moon

by Nikolitsa Boutieros

Raw, heavy, emotive and melodic with elements of Punk,Alt. and industrial all chewed up and spit out into a great listen. An enigmatic voice with dark and yet amusing honest energy. Great guitar based rock with driving rhythms and thunderous drums.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Recorded at Brett Hestla Productions


Nikolitsa and the Comrades is fronted by Nikolitsa Boutieros, a multi-media
artist from New York City. An already acclaimed photographer (who's work
has appeared in Spin.com, TimeOut and various galleries), Nikolitsa has photographed
industry icons like Nick Cave, Patti Smith and many others. You see a vivid,
dramatic dance in her photography. Not merely photographs, but compositions
unlike any other. It is this same captivating vision that she injects into
her music with Nikolista and the Comrades.

Nikolitsa has risen above her early life challenges to divert those raw
experiences towards the passion in her music, and the mysticism of her
application to the arts. She has blossomed into one of New York's major
rising talents!

By blending elements of punk, alternative and grunge into her music, she
creates a wave of sound that is big, raw, heavy and melodic while remaining
identifiably hers alone. With grit, savvy and intent, she exudes a peaceful
but energetic aura with her timeless voice that is only embellished by her
amusingly honest lyrics.

One starry skied New York City evening, Nikolitsa found herself wandering
through record stores in New York searching through new and old cd's. She
happened upon an interesting and mysterious album that she ended up bringing
back home with her. That album was called, "Signs of a Vacant Soul" by
Virgos Merlot. Little did she know it at that time, but that record would
have a lasting impact on her as an artist and would help with the direction
of her music in the future.

That record is still with Nikolitsa to this day, both physically and
spiritually. Some nine years later, after first hearing that album and
then tucking it away, she decided to go back and listen to it again. It
was then that she realized the person who had produced that record (Brett
Hestla), would be the one who could understand her art form and the path in
which she was travelling. He would eventually guide her through the
recording process and inspire her to travel that path towards the next
level.

It took over three years to craft her first recording, "Under the Moon."
Creating the record was both a welcomed personal struggle to continue
growing as an artist, and a joy to see through to it's completion.

During the production of the record, Nikolitsa found like-minded spirits
with etymological hearts and they began playing around New York calling
themselves the Comrades. The Comrades are: 17 year-old guitarist Tori
Knops who weaves the beautiful melodic stories together, rock-wizard
bassist David Schwab who creates a soulful driving groove and Tony
Nugent on drums who keeps the trio positioned on the track.

"My main focus is to capture the truest essence of my material with
honesty, integrity and heart," says Nikolitsa. This essential mode is
totally evident during their live shows and is found in it's entirety in
"Under The Moon," their debut recording.
