Featured Artist of the Week: Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

Featured Artist of the Week: Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling

Michael J. Epstein and Sophia Cacciola’s pet project Do Not Forsake Me, Oh My Darling is, for the lack of better words, explosive! This female led duo is raw, edgy, and very fond of the classic 1960’s television show The Prisoner, in which each track is named after the sequential episode in which the song aired. But, hell, it really doesn’t matter what subject matter they derive their work to be based around. They rock, simply put. And they prove it with their 90’s like thrashed out take on Leonard Cohen’s “First We Take Manhattan”, as heard on their debut EP, The New Number 2. And might I say, these two look far too nice and kind, to be sounding so damn scary! Even more intriguing I suppose!
