Prospect Hill is a Massachusetts-based band comprised of five friends – Adam Fithian (vocals), Alex Huston (guitar), Edgar Troncoso (bass/vocals), John Roberge (guitar) and Mark Roberge (drums) – who have spent the last few years creating a brand just north of Boston. Named after a local neighborhood, Prospect Hill has been a band in some incarnation or other since some of the members were in seventh grade. They released independent albums on their own and took to the New England scene through hard work and elbow grease. That commitment paid off with the 2012 release of its album, “Impact,” which has raised the band’s profile in the rock community. Its unique sound and great live show are what define Prospect Hill.

Cradles to Crayons was founded in 2002, with the mission of providing to children ages 0 to 12 some of the most important basics of life—free of charge. These basics include clothing, school supplies, toys, and much more. In other words, we provide all the physical goods that children need to be safe, protected from the elements, and ready to learn. And by supplying them with high-quality used or new goods, we make children feel valued.
