She also collaborates creatively with the LA industry, including managers, A&Rs, attorneys and also helps host many of ASCAP’s events in the LA region. Prior to ASCAP, Maura worked for Michael Lynton (CEO, Sony Entertainment) and also spent a couple years as a day-to-day artist manger and tour manager at a company called SQE Music. Maura has a Bachelor’s of Science in Music from CU Denver as well as a decade plus of classical violin training.

COLIN MAGALONG

Colin Magalong emerges as an artist with a refreshing vocal range and infectious melodies.  Magalong grew up on the San Francisco peninsula where he was heavily influenced by artists such as BreakBot, Michael Jackson and Kid Cudi.  He studied at the Colorado University of Denver and has since moved to Los Angeles where he currently resides. Having spent the last year writing his debut EP with a small pool of collaborators- as well as writing for other artists on their projects - Magalong is ready to bust out in 2018.  With 90’s inspired hooks and nu-disco grooves, Magalong ’s debut EP is set to be the new soundtrack of your weekend.

Electronic music isn’t the realm of many women in Latin America. Colombian producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and DJ Ali Stone is starting to make waves with her music, and she’s managed to craft impressive works along the way, making movie soundtracks, remixes for top artists such as Katy Perry and Camila Cabello, playing festivals like EDC and most recently being one of the opening acts for Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour. Stone, a classically trained musician, was also featured on the international campaign project “Empowering Women”, which promotes gender equality on male-dominated jobs.

Ever since he can remember, Shaunt Avakian has been enthralled by music. Most adults around him remember his singing and dancing along to the beat of the drum, the groove of the bass, the roar of the guitars and the melodies of the human voice. As he started to grow up, he became fascinated by the idea of playing a musical instrument. Classical Piano training came first around the age of five, along with a short stint in the world of musical theatre. But as Shaunt matured, and ended up in a band as the lead singer, he realized that it was time to pick up another instrument and the guitar came calling. 

He formerly studied vocal performance with Grammy Nominated Artist and Songwriter, Jan Linder-Koda, who introduced him to L.A. studio stalwart, Marty Rifkin, who helped him record his first few demos. He has also had an excellent supporting cast in: Ray Charles guitarist, Don Peake, Derde Verde frontman, Dylan McKenzie, and independent composer/producer, Kyle Wittlin.
In September 2016, Shaunt was contacted by legendary rock photographer, Robert M. Knight who has made his mark by photographing rock legends including Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Jeff Beck and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Robert, who has a knack for discovering new talent, inducted Shaunt into his program for young musicians, the Brotherhood of the Guitar which led to a sponsorship by The Ernie Ball Company.
 In January 2018, Shaunt released his debut EP, Intensity which was recorded throughout 2017 with producer and engineer, Fabrizio Grossi (Nina Hagen, Steve Vai). The influences on the work range from Alternative Rock (The Hives), British Punk (The Clash, Gang of Four), American Hardcore (The Germs, Fugazi) and Blues/Neo Soul (John Mayer, Jeff Buckley).
