The Looking
The Looking
Fusing together a wide scope of inspiration including opera, punk rock, traditional folk, and psychedelic soul, The Looking (aka Todd Carter), creates music that has been described as “intriguing....fascinating” (Collected Sounds), “eclectic and provocative,” (The Chronicle), and “like nobody else you have heard before” (IndieMusic.com ). Carter’s credits range from singing the role of Siegmund in Wagner's Walkyrie at CAMI Hall and performing at Carnegie Hall, to playing NYC rock-club staples like The Bowery Electric and Arlene's Grocery. Promoting his latest album Songs for a Traveler, Carter has been performing to sold-out crowds at notable venues including Symphony Space, Joe’s Pub, and Rockwood Music Hall. Carter’s ability to captivate audiences at such a wide range of musical locales lies in the power of his “phenomenal….goose-bump-inducing” (Direct Current) voice. Between Todd’s operatic training and the guttural rock growl, it is difficult for anyone’s ears to ignore the sound. To flesh out The Looking, Carter performs and records with New York luminaries whose collective credits include playing with everyone from Norah Jones and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, to Andrew Bird and DJ Logic. Carter is currently preparing his next release which should be out in early 2015. In addition to his performing and composing career, Carter is also an accomplished music producer and is currently working with Argentinian-born Bernado Palombo, as well French artist Leopold.

"Sylvana Joyce is an absolute force of nature. She needs to be seen to be believed...She is a general. She is an emperor. She has been sent from some other dimension to show us the way." - Jimmy Lloyd, NBC

"Equal parts dynamo and siren swirling beneath a petite Eastern European exterior, lead singer and keyboardist Sylvana is basically a human carnival." -Huffington Post

MTV, TimeOutNY, Huffington Post...these are some of the big names in the industry already buzzing about Sylvana Joyce and her band, The Moment. Their intensively eclectic sound, coupled with their riveting performances is a demonstration of supreme musicianship, punk theatrics, and Balkan chutzpah that compare them to the likes of Gogol Bordello, Dresden Dolls, and Grace Potter.

After over 100 performances in the past year alone all over the Northeast, opening for such names as Nikka Costa, The Aristocrats, Caravan of Thieves, and Lettuce, Sylvana Joyce + The Moment are proud to return to The Cutting Room to open for The Looking.

The band's critically acclaimed debut record, "For You, Comrade", is now available for streaming on Pandora and Spotify.
