“Do you have somewhere you can go, somewhere safe to be yourself?” sings songwriter Teresa Mastrorilli in the tune “Solace”, the first track from the new Powderhouse EP “Life in Black and White” (FOC Records, Sep. 2014). These lyrics encapsulate the band’s approach to recording the new album, retreating to their bass player’s studio where the comfortable and familiar environment brought out the best in everyone. The 5 songs on the EP reflect the band’s ability to seamlessly integrate multiple genres, such as singer-songwriter (Solace), power-pop (Green Light), indie/dream pop (I’ll Know I’m There), alt-country (No For An Answer) and garage rock (La Sirena). Powderhouse has truly hit its stride in both songwriting and arranging on the EP, recorded and produced by Ray Boyce at FOC Studios and mastered by Mike Burke at Specialized Mastering. The band will celebrate with a CD release show at The Middle East on Friday Sep. 26th, opening for Bloodshot Records recording artist Lydia Loveless.

Powderhouse first came together in early 2007, when Teresa approached the veteran rhythm section of Kevin Moylan and Ray Boyce to help her record some of her songs. That led to the formation of Powderhouse, who played their debut gig in May 2007. The band has since played successful shows at top clubs throughout the Boston area, including Church, The Middle East, Hard Rock Café, Precinct, T.T. the Bears Place, Davis Square Theatre, Sally O’Briens, Copperfield's and Bills Bar. After adding lead guitarist Fred Pickard and keyboardist Art DaPrato to the line-up in 2008, Powderhouse released their full-length debut album, "In The Meantime” in July 2010. The track "Keeping My Heart" was voted onto the Top 5 Local Song Poll on WZLX/Boston Emissions for 4 weeks and songs from the album received airplay on both terrestrial and Internet radio. Positive reviews appeared in The Deli Magazine, Metronome Magazine, The Noise, WomensRadio Music Review and elsewhere. The band released a follow-up EP entitled “Through The Air” in Nov. 2012, playing lots of shows to support that EP, which also received solid reviews and radio airplay. Powderhouse has been selected to play the International Pop Overthrow Festival 3 times (’09. ’10 & ’13), and was twice featured as the "Soundtrack" artist of the day on NECN’s "The Morning Show". Several Powderhouse songs were also placed in the soundtrack of the film "Wingman” (2011).

The release date for “Life in Black and White” is 9.16.2014 on FOC Records, to be available on CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, eMusic and just about anywhere else digital music is downloaded or streamed. Powderhouse will be booking shows and appearances throughout he Northeast during the coming months in order to support the release of their new EP.
