18 months ago, Long Island based reggae/dub band Free Noise Brigade set forth on a journey to cut their first full length album. With an overwhelming response to their hit self-titled EP available on iTunes, FNB moved to capture and catalog all that makes them who they are behind the music.

Lead singer and guitarist Ryan Dobby reached out to Red Vault for help in documenting the many month creative process of recording an album that speaks of their trials and tribulations as an up and coming group from Long Island, NY.
Many an hour was spent at the Cellar Door Studio in Amityville, NY as the band plugged away to tell their side of life through music. The space was cramped and confined, but FNB embraced it as a true testament of their passion and desire.

Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc along the coasts of NY and NJ late in 2012. From Long Beach to Staten Island and everywhere in between, the wake of Sandy brought devastation and dispair to all residents who survived it.
Amidst the turmoil and chaos, GoalZero, a solar company from Utah sought to lend a hand and help shed a little light in the darkest of days. Through their donation efforts and relief campaign, the residents of Rockaway, Coney Island, Staten Island, and Jersey were given hope in the form of a 3 watt light.
With some light to work in and power to charge their phones, victims of Sandy have been given the positive push and strength to carry on and persevere in the rebuilding efforts.
Red Vault had the pleasure of working with GoalZero, documenting the experience of a life time.

As the East Coast faces the long days ahead attempting to rebuild a livelihood that was swept away in an instant, a company with a true heart and soul, Goal Zero, jumped at the opportunity to aid in the relief effort. Donating $300,000 worth of equipment to help shed light during the darkest of days, this solar company from Utah came through in the clutch branching out to the most affected areas from Hurricane Sandy’s catastrophic power.
Bringing hope to the areas of Rockaway, Coney Island, Breezy Point, and Staten Island in the most basic form of power to charge a cell phone and turn on a light, Goal Zero touched the lives of many and got their hands dirty in the process. When they were not distributing products, they were gutting houses with the rest of the thousands of volunteers who gave back to their world and their community.
Red Vault was happy to tag along and document movement, often times setting the camera down to help rip down walls as well.

Hurricane Sandy, one of the most cataclysmic storms the North East has experienced in the last century, wreaked havoc across Long Island, the 5 boroughs, and New Jersey this past week. The storm has brought most to their knees pleading for help in this difficult time. With no power, no heat, and countless homes condemned in the following days, Sandy has brought irreversible damage the waterfront communities and low-lying areas in New York and New Jersey as FEMA and the Local Government are left scratching their heads wondering where they begin.
Historic landmarks for many Long Islanders are the barrier beaches the skirt the South Coast of the Island. Jones Beach State Park, Robert Moses State Park, and all of Dune Road have now become all but sandbars in the Atlantic Ocean.
Without billions of dollars in funding needed to restore Long Island’s Ocean beaches, Islanders might be seeking new places to cool off in the summer heat next summer. Ocean Parkway remains impassable to the public and can only be accessed by residents who are returning to find many of their homes and businesses destroyed.
At the docks in Hampton Bays, many of the fishermen have mixed emotions as to the lack of damage to the fleet but the new proximity to the jaws of the Atlantic their port now lies, as all of the protective dunes were overrun by Sandy’s tidal surge.
It will be weeks until the fleet can regain full operational strength and stock most of the East End’s fish markets and restaurants once again.
Dune Road remains closed to the public as an official cleanup operation has been put into effect.
The coming weeks will prove to be a test of futility and patience as those of New York and New Jersey have the odds stacked against them. With gas in mass shortage because of ports being undermined by flooding and hundreds of thousands still without electricity or heat, we need to band together and provide support in any way possible. Red Vault’s thoughts and prayers are with all affected by mother nature’s events. Stand strong NY and NJ, we will get through this.
