Christine Donaldson grew up playing music in San Francisco, CA where she acquired an array of training in different genres. Her passion for singing motivated her focus on guitar accompaniment, and her love of jazz music paved the way for musical academia and a spot in the SFJAZZ High School All-Star Band. With years of experience gigging with jazz, bluegrass, and soul bands, Christine went on to study jazz performance and music industry at the University of Southern California. She split up her time in Los Angeles by skiing competitively and spending winters at Mammoth Mountain, CA where she wrote original music inspired by the mountains. Now graduated with practiced skills in performance, songwriting, arranging, and sound engineering, Christine is confidently following her dream of writing and releasing original music.
Exploring the emotional undercurrents of our daily lives, evoking hope and longing in equal parts,Oakland native Austin Prince makes music that hits listeners between the heart and gut. Creating music to fill his own need for connection and understanding, Austin is influenced by Alabama Shakes, Jack Johnson, and Frank Ocean.
His last single “Sadie” was placed on Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist and has set the tone for what The Deli Magazine called his "minimalistic pop-meets-soul" sound. Back from a 3-week National tour with half•alive, Austin is shaping and building this project and getting ready to release his next single “Jesus When It Rains” in Spring 2019.
Rob Sharyon is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Sonoma County, CA. His musical stylings, ranging from heartfelt folk ballads to danceable rock anthems, reflect the diversity of music he has performed as a solo and supporting musician throughout the SF Bay Area. Rob's debut single from his upcoming self-titled EP, “Choose These Tears”, is an enthusiastic tribute to the emboldening bond of partnership.
