With a little help from their friends at the Passim Iguana Music Fund, The Michael J Epstein Memorial Library will be able to complete their debut album without artistic compromise. The baroque indie pop dectet joins 17 other grant winners affiliated with New England who will receive funding for significant career-building projects or who are providing community service through music. Passim is a part of the group’s history in another way: Epstein met his wife (and MJEML drummer) Sophia Cacciola at Club Passim.
The funded album will be available for lucky Boston area fans at the MJEML’s release show at the Middle East on February 26th. It will be released nationally in the early summer.The Iguana Music Fund, a program of the nonprofit performance arts organization Passim, fosters a vibrant and exciting music community in New England through seed grants to aspiring local artists for significant career-building or who are providing community service through music.
