Best of Hudson Valley Winners: 2008
Pick: Editors' Picks
About: With two CDs to their credit (including The World as We Know It, which was released earlier this year), this pop-rock band consists of five relative youngsters (everyone is 20 or younger) from Orange County, including vocalists Justin Wiley and sole female Jessica Leplon. Their soulful harmonies have attracted more than two million hits on the group's MySpace page and helped them launch a nationwide tour earlier this year. The band, however, doesn't forget their roots; they can often be found jamming at the Chance in Poughkeepsie.
