Jenn is an emotive pop singer, songwriter and pianist, originally from Minnesota, currently based in Nashville, Tennessee. She recently received 5 ICMA Awards, including Best Female Artist and Best Songwriter. Her YouTube hit "Jealous of the Angels," which has over 1.3 million views, is currently receiving major radio play in the United Kingdom. The music has been compared to that of Sara Bareilles and Sarah McLachlan with a touch of Bonnie Raitt. With sold old shows at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles, and recently performing at both the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Bostic is winning hearts across the globe.
Justin Trawick is a Virginia native born in Leesburg, VA and now residing in Arlington, VA close to Washington DC. His music ranges in styles from folk/bluegrass all the way to funk/hip hop. Justin's lineup varies for each show and with instrumentation that includes: upright bass, electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, banjo, saxophone, trumpet, cello, piano, harmonica, drums, and hand percussion.
Justin has opened for Brett Dennen, Bob Schneider, Pat Green, Ingram Hill, Edwin McCain, Pat McGee, Cowboy Mouth, Sara Bareilles, Jimmies Chicken Shack, The Gourds, K.C. and The Sunshine Band, Robinella, and Jenny Owen Youngs, and Basia Bulat.
The DC area is known for its fast-paced, transient lifestyle and cacophonous atmosphere, but singer-songwriter Tiffany Thompson is imparting something quieter, more personal, and lasting to its character. While she fits right into eastern-seaboard society by virtue of her childhood filled with travel, her essential grounding comes through in her uplifting music and keenly insightful lyrics.
Prior to becoming a Washington-area resident, Thompson called a lot of places home. The daughter of a minister, she was born in Iowa, but lived in Moscow, Russia in the early 1990’s. She spent her adolescence in Austin, Texas, where she recorded her first record and graduated high school. Then she was off to Wheaton College in Illinois to major in political science, while playing out at cafes in around Chicago.
Since 2008, DC has been home to Tiffany, and she’s toured throughout the East Coast and Mid-West as a solo artist, fusing together story-telling folk and pop songs. She has recently been the opening act for America at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, and Mindy Smith at Jammin' Java in Vienna, Virginia. On her April 2011 EP, Tiffany has created an acoustic, jazzy collection of colorful pieces about life and love. Her most recent single, a collaboration with LA based producer Chris Franz, demonstrates her maturing talent and sonically points to south towards more of an Alt-Folk sound.
