A fresh, young 23-year-old singer-songwriter with big dreams and an ever-expanding fanbase, local artist Jamie Kent’s future as a performer looks quite promising. Drawing on influences from modern artists like Jack Johnson and Jamie Cullum, as well as paying tribute to classic greats Johnny Cash and Frank Sinatra, Kent’s perfectly mellifluous tunes are roll-the-windows-down, soak-up-some-sun kind of good.

Second Dan is ready to re-emerge after the past year holed up in the studio working on their new album, “Angeline”. These new recordings should cement the band in the echelons of New York City’s scene, building on the success of their debut album “Bringing Down Goliath”.
Born from scene work on the Upright Citizens Brigade stage, Derek and the Darling formed an electro-pop band in late 2009 instead of an improv troupe because it was “way less nerdy.” “Rockface” the debut EP, arrives April 27, 2010
The Nadas are Iowa’s signature alt-rock-country band, selling more than 125,000 albums through their own label, Authentic Records. They embarked on a new approach to recording with their upcoming seventh release, Almanac (March 2010), which was recorded over the last year completely in front of their fans through a live streaming video blog. The sound that developed out of that process was an alternative approach to the traditional pop tunes. Singers/guitarists Mike Butterworth and Jason Walsmith, bassist Jon Locker, drummer Jason Smith, and violinist Becca Smith mix country, rock, alternative, and indie with flawless songwriting and catchy melodies for a crowd-pleasing experience.
Nadia is a Canadian born singer/songwriter with a penchant for metaphoric lyrics and eclectic musical influences. Her influences of rock, soul and folk are evident on her debut album Arrival from the Beatles-esque Julian to the soulful pop of Arrival and the bluesy depth of the Blues Always Bleed Red. Her live show is a ruckus energetic version of the album.
