Cheyenne Skye

Cheyenne Skye sings from the heart and writes timeless songs with an equal touch of emotion and humor along with a little sprinkle of her love for nature, and her passion for recognizing environmental issues.
She projects a folky and soulful sound, almost as if Patsy Cline, Nina Simone, Janis Joplin, Devandra Banhart, Jade (from Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeroes), Hurray For The Riffraff, Jim Croche and Rodriguez all had a baby together.
As an original member of the group 'Rainbow Girls', Cheyenne has shared lineups and stages with California Honey Drops, Nikki Bloom and the Gramblers, ALO, Brothers Comatose, Marty O'rielly and the Old Soul Orchestra, John Craige, Handmade Moments, Groove Session, and so much more. She will be singing and stomping all around Western US this Spring and Summer with the release of her new EP, 'Pruned For The Picking', as she launches her solo career as a folk/soul singer-songwriter.

Moni

Moni is a singer/songwriter that is unafraid to dive deep into the melodies of vulnerability. Her songs that touch on death, love and strength are deeply rooted in the power of connection and are a taste of the depths of her emotional nature. A mixture of Americana and confessional alt-country, her sound resembles a combination of Natalie Merchant, Tracy Chapman and Florence Welch.
