Kray Van Kirk is an Alaskan singer-songwriter, delivering performances that the Borderline Folk Club in New York called "...what every singer-songwriter should aspire to." At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where many shows receive only a handful of audience members due to the sheer volume of available performances, his room was sold out, leaving some folks sitting on the stairs and a Fringe reviewer to write "the Alaskan singer-songwriter, in his Edinburgh debut, was not the reason I arrived early, but certainly why I stayed late".

Kray walked away from his first stint in graduate school in Berkeley to tour and live in his Ford Econoline van, playing shows in the days before cell phones (...

Dan O'Sullivan's nearly two decade long career as a guitarist-for-hire took him to performing with musical acts as diverse as South Korea's most famous female pop singer Pati Kim, 50's R+B vocal legends the Coasters, Blues singer Barbara Morrison, Adult Contemporary star Michael Bolton, and to sharing the bill with Reggae acts such as Maxi Priest, Eek-A-Mouse, and Big Mountain. Over time, his interest in the sideman role began to wither, as his desire to cut his own musical path grew. The stark realization that his previous career was over came when he received a phone call from the musical director of the Beach Boys. After a twenty minute conversation in which he was invited to be one of three singin...

People try to box others in. Genres and artist comparisons are how the public tries to make sense of a musician. You can’t really do that with Matt Bednarsky.

Born to a mother with a classical pedigree and a professional jazz guitarist father, Matt grew up in Shelton, CT engulfed in music. He began violin at the age of 4 (soon after left behind), guitar at age 8, and started singing probably not long after he could make farm animal noises. He first put pen to paper in songwriting at the age of 12, finding it as a way to creatively engage.

Matt attended New York University and studied Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, psychology and music. After studying abroad in It...

Main Instrument: Vocals, Guitar / Piano Other Instruments: Harmonica, percussion
 
Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmony and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and ‘60s and ‘70s pop music, their self-chosen genre “Retro Soul Pop” doesn’t entirely encompass their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. They shrug off music industry conventions in favor of what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect. Drawing inspiration from their nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse are best described as modern troubadours, generously o...

This story all began with a five year old Daniel picking up a guitar in the footsteps of a musical father, writing his first songs at twelve, training classically throughout his teens and playing wherever he could to develop the dynamite live show he is renowned for today. At eighteen he left school, hit the road and hasn’t really stopped since as the following years saw him tour endlessly around the world, playing some of the most renowned festivals and sharing stages with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Rodrigo y Gabriella, The Waifs, Judy Collins, INXS, John Butler and KT Tunstall - all of this while writing, producing and independently releasing two EPs and three albums.
