Madeline Finn

Madeline Finn is a proud Cleveland native who has been honing her singing and songwriting craft from a very young age. Winner of the Cleveland High School Rock-Off at 16, the first female fronted act to do so in the history of the contest, Finn has been a fixture in Cleveland venues and recording studios since before she graduated high school. Working as a solo artist and with nationally recognized acts Envoi and The Whiskey Hollow, Finn has honed her unique blend of powerful vocals, introspective lyrics, and smartly-crafted melodies. Finn currently works full-time as an artist and vocal/production coach, while touring and performing solo and with her band, The Whiskey Hollow. Finn has played a variety of major venues and festivals in the Midwest and continues to tour and record, scheduling shows and studio sessions throughout 2018. Often described as a powerhouse singer and songwriter, Finn has built a sizeable local and national following as an independent artist, striving to make unique music that speaks to the soul.

Niya grew up in a city called Chalmette just east of New Orleans. She has been singing since she was five, starting in the church choir, then school plays, and finally in a Rock band known as "The Sheltered." She started singing in the clubs around New Orleans when she was 15; luckily she looked old enough and club owners back then were lax. Niya was voted one of the "Women in Rock" in the local New Orleans paper while still just a Catholic high school girl by day and a "Rock Star" by night.
Niya is mastering her second album “Below the Watermark” music dedicated to her family in New Orleans. She calls Westminster, CO home where her husband and guitarist, Kris Nickeson, produces her albums at Microtone Studios. With her third album being recorded, Niya lives the musical life and also enjoys photography, her new muse at Aspen Eyes Photography.
Her first album “Through the Matter” can be found on Amazon, iTunes and her website niyamusic.com

Kelvin Frazier

The Georgia native grew up in a musical household. When Kelvin was a child, he was in a church choir who was directed by his grandmother. As Kelvin grew older, he eventually became the assistant choir director. Once Kelvin left for college, he began performing solo. Kelvin joined the Savannah State University Concert choir and was invited to perform at Carnegie Hall. When he moved on to pursue his doctorate at MIT, he never forgot his passion of music and continued to participate in various choirs. Upon graduating from MIT with a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry, he was invited to perform a solo act at the world famous Amateur Night at the Apollo in New York City. In May 2016, Kelvin moved to Los Angeles to pursue his music career. While he works on his EP, he performs with the CaliWorship Mass Choir, works as an R&D Electrochemist, sits on the board of directors for two non-profits (i-Trek and BAMIT), and teaches organic chemistry at California State University-Dominguez Hills.

A former contestant on American Idol (Season 3) and Division-I collegiate wrestler, Stevey is a singer-songwriter currently based in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Stevey’s debut EP album "Beneath" was released worldwide in Spring 2018, featuring singles Damn Girl Lie and Melba, accompanied by Time is a Thief and Can't Find Myself. “I view this collection of songs as an introspective musing of self-worth, heartache, love, and time -- the stuff beneath the surface that we all connect with,” he explains.

Stevey (born, Steve Ertl) was raised in the dirt and timber of an eastern Iowa farm, where he discovered his voice by emulating his father whistling to an old-school country vinyl spinning on the record player. He later uncovered a passion for writing imagery-centric poetry and was published at age 11.

While enduring the grueling lifestyle of Division-I college wrestling, he and a teammate formed the R&B group, verseAtile, placing three original pieces in the independent film, “7 Minutes.” Stevey continued his musical pursuits post-university by teaching himself guitar, winning multiple singing contests, amassing 200,000+ YouTube views, and ultimately began performing nationwide as a singer-songwriter in 2011.

Stevey has shared the stage and supported artists such as: Nathaniel Rateliff, The Nadas, The Kinky Fingers, Carry Illinois, Maxwell Hughes, Royce Lovett, Shane Burke, The Wendy Woo Band, Clayton Risner, Elise Wunder, Alright Alright, and The Covz.

Stevey’s writing is poignant and conscious, which is complemented by his rich, creamy, soul-wrenching vocals. By threading moments of personal vulnerability, listeners become tethered to his music: a Folk-Pop-Americana vibe that walks the line between mainstream and obscurity.
