Morrison Conway is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, CA. Drawing his inspiration from artists like Jack Johnson, Dwight Yoakam, and the Eagles, Conway’s style is an original and fresh take that evokes a vintage SoCal country sound.
His latest collection of songs, There and Then, features tracks written over the last several years that draw on his nostalgia for what was and an appreciation for what is.
Conway can be found performing at venues like The Mint and The Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, and also features as singer and guitarist in the LA-based electronic indie rock duo, SAVOIA.
San Francisco's Zelma Stone is frontwoman Chloe Zelma, Haley Pan (bass), Jake Kissner (drums), Jewelz (keys) and Kevin Fielding (lead guitar). The band formed in 2017 to bring to life a collection of songs Chloe wrote during some tumultuous times.
Zelma Stone's debut EP ‘Layla’ channels grief and pain into a dreamy soundscape of empowering arrangements and addictive melodies invoking Big Thief, Angel Olsen and Jefferson Airplane—a few of the band's major influences.
‘Layla’ was recorded at Light Rail Studios with Honey House Records in San Francisco, released in early 2019, and named after Chloe's dog. Chloe wrote these songs after a handful of losses, including the death of her brother, Layla's original owner, Brett.
Born into a family of musicians, singers and songwriters, Charlie's unquenchable passion for great music and melodies seemed only natural. He grew up listening
to Earth Wind and Fire, Stevie Wonder, and The Doobie Brothers among others, so it’s no surprise that by the age of 6 he was singing and performing with his siblings for family and friends. It wasn't until high school though that he really got the bug, and flourished. At 18 he picked up the guitar and hasn't looked back, playing solo gigs while working and attending school.
Recent artist influences such as Gavin DeGraw, Ed Sheeran, Andy Grammar and Eminem inspired Charlie to concentrate on songwriting, and ultimately his first EP.
His father, Bill, a producer, writer and musician who reached the billboard charts in the 80’s, produced Charlie’s 4 song self-titled debut. The sounds of the EP are a punchy combination of 2016 Pop and Soul, Hip Hop, Gospel, EDM, and Classic Singer/Songwriter.
In 2013, 2014 and 2016 Charlie was contacted by the producers of the TV show “The Voice” and invited to audition in Chicago, Dallas and Nashville. Having recently moved from Cincinnati, OH he also won “Best Original Pop Song” and
“Best Original Singer/Songwriter Song” in the 2016 Ohio Music Awards, the overall Grand Prize in the Songdoor 2016 International Songwriting Competition with his original song “Change Me” and “Best Singer/Songwriter Song” for his song “Broken” in the 2018 Ohio Music Awards.
Charlie continues to grow as a performer, and now incorporates “looping” into his live shows. By looping he can accompany himself not only with acoustic guitar, he can also create a drum track, bass and other instruments, giving him a full band sound.
