Kira Lingman Band
Perhaps Kira is best summed up by music journalist and creator of Dirty Hippy Radio, Jeff Vincent, when he wrote: "While she does many different things — improvising southern country-fried, chicken-picking guitar solos, tapping percussion with her feet, blowing nasty harp with swampy comprehension, adding soft beauty to the facade before tearing it down and throwing it in your face with piercing vocals — the advent of Lingman does one general thing to a band: it brings a ton of soul.”
Witnessing Kira, Joe Lopilato (bass), and Zach (drums) play live is an experience not easily forgotten. Arresting, chaotic, beautiful, intense, sweet, and of course, soulful. Check out KiraLingman's debut album produced by drummer, Zach Bozeman.
Lisa Ritchie & Friends
Although having written and performed in other genres, Lisa Ritchie is most often labeled as an up and coming indie-pop artist. “I find that many writers have an intrinsic way they write... the goal is to not pigeonhole yourself but craft that style into the most relatable, honest version you can.”
Attending college in Ann Arbor, Michigan afforded Ritchie multiple opportunities to collaborate, write, perform and record her music. Her most notable milestones in Michigan include headlining The Ark’s “New Singer-Songwriters” showcase in 2014, playing to crowds upward of 2,000 people at Big Ticket Festival and the Ann Arbor Art Fair in 2015, and writing and releasing her second EP, “Expectations” in Sept of 2015.
A few weeks after the release of her album, she moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of new opportunities. Within 6 months, she wrote the top-line and recorded vocals on 8 tracks (in the process of being licensed), wrote two singles to release in 2017, gained several Los Angeles residencies, filmed a music video with a renowned filmographer, and established a large network of other musicians and producers.
Currently, she resides in Los Angeles and is turning her focus to touring in 2017.
Singer-songwriter Allie Quinn grew up outside of Los Angeles, in the small surf punk town of Hermosa Beach California.
A wild kid with a vivid imagination, she began songwriting at age 9 and knew that music was her lifes calling. At 20, she hopped in a van traveling the country playing musical medicine for everyone she met and sleeping under the stars. Five years later, Her debut album Strongheart is currently being fundraised on indiegogo and will be released in summer 2018. Allie Quinn's conscious-folk-rock sound is friendly-listening for all the seekers, dreamers and humans on this Earth looking for light in this time.
Stephanie Hatzinikolis is a fiercely independent musician whose primary instruments are the keyboard and voice. Her songs are dramatic, lyrical and delve deep into human emotions. Her soulful and haunting voice portrays angst against a backdrop of beauty. Truly unique, absolutely worth your attention.
