False Pocket

361 Washington Street

False Pocket was born 3 years ago when guitarist Alec Nelson, bassist Matt Grippo, and saxophonist Joe Newmann bonded over their love of jazz, hip hop, samba, and soul. Nick Arcari soon found his way into the group because of drumming for one of Alec’s previous projects, and by late last year songs written by Alec were beginning to form. Daniela Fanelli met Alec and Nick at a local Emerson house show, and after falling in love with her voice, brought her to the group in August. Unfortunately, Daniela graduated from Emerson and returned home overseas, leaving a vacant vocalist position in the band. Early 2019, False Pocket connected with Sydney DellaRatta, a vocalist, and began performing shows with her around Boston.
