Subway Sessions was created by three friends while living in New York - Thomas McAulay, Sam Spar, and Matt Pelosi. The purpose was to share their love of music with New York City and the rest of the world. In today’s culture of overproduction, auto-tuning, and a nearly impenetrable studio system, music can easily lose its soul before it reaches the listener. The goal of Subway Sessions is to showcase artists performing outside of these conventions – relying solely on talent and musicality.
Inspired by the raw performances of New York City buskers, we set out on a mission to showcase musicians doing what they do best, away from what is perhaps their usual environment. The concept is simple: No studios, no editing – just music.
Subway Sessions has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Billboard, NBC, Grammy.com and various other blogs and media outlets.
Subway Sessions is produced by Sam Spar and directed by Thomas McAulay.
