 Jason Spiewak, based out of Westfield, NJ, is a singer-piano player whose songwriting has been compared to other piano rock performers of the modern era.  Spiewak tackles themes surrounding relatable experiences in life, love, and loss with a sharp tongue and an eye toward social unrest and boozy personal upheaval.  His writing is generally pop-sensible, but can deliver elements of blues, rock and Americana.  

 Frances Luke Accord are an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles. Although prevailingly a modern folk band, FLA sip copious inspiration from Americana, jazz, soul, and rock.  Check them out at www.franceslukeaccord.com.

Annalise Emerick, a singer-songwriter, has been on the road virtually non-stop.

With Field Notes, Emerick situated herself among fans of Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Eva Cassidy alike. www.annaliseemerick.com

Rachel Marie is a cunning wordsmith, and precociously sophisticated. Clear and mature vocal production colors songs that are relevant, relatable, and far-reaching.
