BAILEN’s otherworldly musicality springs from a very deep well, in fact, it’s in their DNA. Raised in New York by their classically trained parents, Daniel, David and Julia immersed themselves in the family’s diverse record collection. The group’s highly collaborative songs are formed by three very different individuals who were all inspired by literature and a love of language. The resulting confident, meticulous songcraft of Thrilled To Be Here is rooted in the young group’s preternatural dexterity, insight and lyrical bite.
Detail-oriented and precise, the members of BAILEN found the perfect counterpoint in producer Congleton’s more open approach: “We think micro, and John was really good at thinking macro for the record,” Julia observes. “First records are special because you’ve spent your whole life writing them. Recording our album in a month at the same studio with one producer meant that we kept the creativity, but also found the cohesiveness.”

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey has unveiled a pair of regulations aimed at returning the state to regional greenhouse gas-reduction coalition.
Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy announced the rules Monday. Murphy says one would mean a 30 percent reduction in carbon dioxide emissions at electricity-producing plants by 2030. Murphy announced last year that New Jersey would rejoin the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative after Republican Chris Christie pulled the state from the group in 2011. The cap-and-trade program is made up of nine New England and mid-Atlantic states working to reduce carbon emissions from power plants. One rule calls for setting an 18 million-ton cap on carbon emissions in 2020. Figures from the Energy Information Administration show that’s roughly the same as 2017.
The second rule crates a framework for implementing involvement in the group.
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A United flight arriving at Newark Liberty International Airport had to be taken out of service after ants from a carry-on bag appeared in part of the cabin.
A passenger on the Venice-to-Newark flight Monday described the scenario in a series of tweets and photos. A United spokesman said the plane was sidelined once it reached Newark so it could be cleaned and exterminated. The spokesman said the airline notified airport customs and agriculture personnel.
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Belmar native Jade Glab has been crowned Miss New Jersey 2019.
The 19-year-old Brookdale Community College student won the title Saturday night at Resorts Casino Hotel. She will represent the Garden State in the Miss America competition.
Glab, who entered this year’s competition as Miss Central Jersey Beaches, took home the talent award on the first night with her rendition of the aria “O Mio Babbino Caro.”
During her year as Miss New Jersey, Glab will promote her “Healthy Children, Strong America” platform, an issue she said had concerned her since she was told she had high cholesterol at age 11.
The first runner up was Alyssa Sullivan, Miss Atlantic Shores, and the second runner up was Miss Central Jersey Kyra Seeley.
