Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz

Portland based, Christine Havrilla, embarked on an ambitious new journey with her Gypsy Fuzz project in late 2011. Havrilla, a Philadelphia native, who has five studio albums, three EPs, and over a decade of touring under her belt, ventures into a new band project with Gypsy Fuzz. The power trio based band features Christine on electric guitar, and has been described as "a blend of 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s rock delivered by the modern singer/songwriter."

Lucky Ones, produced by Jack Dishel (Only Son, The Moldy Peaches, Regina Spektor), is the sophomore effort from New York-based singer and songwriter Adrien Reju. The new album is a departure from the folk vibe of her debut release A Million Hearts and shows evolution and growth from the artist with its edgier pop sound, orchestral arrangements, and retro-rock backbeat drums, offering something fresh for dedicated fans and new listeners. 

When negotiations with a NYC-based independent record label broke down due to differences, Reju sought out PledgeMusic, a Kickstarter-like fundraising platform, to help her release the new album. To launch the campaign, Reju and producer Jack Dishel, who bonded over their love for comedy, together created a comedic sketch short film entitled "The Mysterious Producer." The success of the campaign was notable, raising over 125% of its target from supporters in the United States and as far afield as the United Kingdom and Germany. Matt Connor of PledgeMusic took notice of the new album, saying, "the compelling mix places Reju firmly alongside today's most celebrated female pop songwriters."

Her music has received accolades from the New York SongCircle, awards from 100% Music Songwriting Contest, a Top 10 Songwriter listing by CBS Philly, and soundtrack appearances, including the opening credits of Hallmark Movie Channel's "Flower Girl."

Barnaby Bright

Brooklyn-based indie folk rock duo Barnaby Bright, have garnered high accolades for their lyrically captivating and impeccably balanced songwriting and sound. The ying to each other's yang, Becky's angelic voice enchants audiences, while Nathan's brilliant mastery of multiple instruments and writing styles guides the songs down their path. Finalists in the prestigious New York Song Circle Contest for two years in a row, Barnaby Bright was awarded the Grand Prize, winners in November 2010 for their song, "Don't Look Down."

Between Nathan's bachelor degree in saxophone performance and jazz composition from Berklee College of Music as well as a Masters of Recording from The Conservatory of the Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, Arizona and Becky's degree in vocal performance, it's no surprise the married duo wrote and self-produced their first album, "Wake The Hero," garnering accolades such as being highlighted as an "Emerging Artist" at the legendary Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in July 2010. Their music has been featured on ER, Days of Our Lives, and Roadtrip Nation, and the catchy, melodic "If I Came Back As a Song" placed third in 2007's International Song-Writing Competition, whose panel of judges including Tom Waits.

A positive, gracious attitude lures audiences from all over the world into a Barnaby Bright performance, captivated not only by the gorgeous melodies they produce but also by the simplistic spirit of two musicians who truly love their art as much as they love each other. They have toured all over the US in addition to completing two successful month-long European tours, dazzling fans with unique instrumentation, powerful harmonies, intelligent lyrics, and genuine warmth on stage. Inspired by literature, life, human behavior, and a hint of fantasy, Barnaby Bright is a classic vision of timeless indie folk rock in all its glory.

Their first Mishara Music recording will release in May 2011 – a six cut EP, including both award winning songs from "Wake The Hero" and two new songs - "Reverend's Son and the first radio track "Gravity".

Teri Rambo

Part confessor, part philosopher and all heart, Teri Rambo tells the slightly uncomfortable/entirely beautiful stories of human vulnerability and desire. Behind her shy smile and stop-look-and-listen voice, there is a bittersweet transparency, a disarming sincerity and a wink of good humor.
Ms. Rambo has shared the stage with two of her personal heroes: Livingston Taylor and Jane Siberry. Her song Say Something won an Honorable Mention in the 2012 New England Songwriting Competition. Among various Philadelphia theater projects, Teri's distinct vocal sound was featured in the Wilma Theater's Barrymore award-winning production of In the Next Room or the vibrator play (2011).
Teri's first album, to be released later this year by Little Spiders Studio in Phoenixville PA, is a compilation of two decades of original writing
