MARVEL YEARS & MADDY O’NEAL – New Years Eve at 1904 Music Hall
 12/31 8PM

Maddy O’Neal has been catching the eyes and ears of music fans around the world with her tasteful versatility and mixing style. Hailing from Denver, CO Maddy O’Neal has carved out her niche in the always changing and very diverse electronic genre. Maddy’s rock n’ roll family roots and growing appetite for old-school hip-hop, give her a sound that sets her apart from other artists in the scene. 

Cory Wythe, the producer and guitarist better known as Marvel Years, has found a welcome place for himself within the increasingly popular glitch-hop / electro-soul dance music scene. In just a short period of time, his progression has become outright impossible to ignore. Much more than your average DJ/producer, Marvel Years incorporates electric guitar in his live performances. His approach to blending electronic beats and shredding soulful guitar on his original tracks and remixes creates a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combing glitch, retro-funk, classic rock, soul, jazz and hip-hop.
