Creating the new music social media app Tunefly has been challenging, tedious, and exhausting. But it’s not like we’re in the coal mines – we’re listening to great tunes and creating a platform for artists to be discovered on a local level.

As longtime readers, we’re honored to partner with NEPA Scene for this brand new Artist of the Week feature, and we look forward to sharing our discoveries with you.

We’re super excited to kick off our weekly column by introducing you to Rosary Guild, an alternative rock trio based out of Wilkes-Barre. Rosary Guild is Gerald LaMark Jr. (drums), Danielle Crockett (bass), and William McHale (guitars and vocals).

Inspired by friends, family, and a medley of genre-spanning artists like Radiohead, Sigur Ros, The Smiths, Nirvana, and The Police, Rosary Guild has crafted a truly unique and captivating sound, backed by a polished live performance.

“Our goal is to make music that people can attach themselves to and cope with. Just as we have turned to music that we love in times of need, we hope to provide the same refuge for others,” McHale said.

They are releasing their debut EP at Tunefly’s first live event this Saturday, Nov. 12 at The Other Side in Wilkes Barre with three other up-and-coming bands – Deaf Rhino, The Boneflowers, and Atherholt. For more details, see the Facebook event page.

Tunefly, a mobile app hailed as “the Instagram for music” that was developed by NEPA natives, connects musicians and music lovers with a global audience that shares their enthusiasm. Each week, Tunefly selects an Artist of the Week for NEPA Scene that you can discover through the app, which is available now on iPhone and Android devices.
