"The Rochester art-folk group formerly known as The Sugar Gliders has been making headway in the local music scene with its irresistible, heart-melting lullabies. The main duo consists of guitarist-vocalist Roxy Elahi and banjoist-vocalist Alison Lindsey. Recently, Elahi and Lindsey decided to add their friends Ryan Yarmel of Yarms on bass and Zach Kochan of Great Red on guitar.
