Vienna Teng

Singer/pianist Vienna Teng and percussionist Alex Wong have crafted a sound that the Associated Press calls "ambitious yet always tuneful…gorgeous and haunting." Each has garnered attention in their own right: Vienna has appeared on Letterman, NPR and the CBS Early Show, and toured with artists such as Shawn Colvin, India.Arie, Duncan Sheik and the Indigo Girls. Alex has produced records for celebrated singer/songwriters Ari Hest and Amber Rubarth, as well as his own project The Paper Raincoat (recently a featured artist on iTunes), and won Best Original Score in the L.A. Weekly Theater Awards for his work on Everyman For Himself. Vienna and Alex's first studio collaboration, Inland Territory, was released in April 2009 to glowing reviews: "a brilliant, introspective diary of an album" (American Songwriter), "sheer effervescent beauty…demands repeated exploration" (Blurt Online). In live performance, using an array of instruments along with looping pedals and effects—but no pre-recorded tracks of any kind—the duo veers from intimate to epic and back again, showcasing their love for an ever-widening range of genres: folk, pop, classical, jazz, country, even atonal modern music.

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".
