Singer EmZ is an original: She is one of those rare artists who follow their own inner voice and draw inspiration from a deep wellspring of hurt, and hopefulness, and laughter and love. EmZ sings her heart and tells her life story in every word she writes. Her songs are poems - sometimes tender, sometimes wickedly funny, but always honest and real and human. Her influences are as eclectic as her music: the cool jazz voices of Anita O’Day and Ella Fitzgerald; echoes of Judy Garland, the hurt child longing for the Rainbow; the raucous, rebellious shout of Rock and Roll. All of these disparate, contradictory elements come together in EmZ’s work in an alchemic fusion that transmutes them into Gold. Her first solo album "Postcards," Emz reveals her unself-conscious gift for capturing in stunning images, the often inexplicable journey of a sweet and vicious soul in bloom.

The Bleed is chaotic, noisy, neo-riot grrrl from New York City. Spawned from a chance meeting in Midtown Manhattan, we seek out revolution and spit back venom. From a proud anti-tradition of post-punk discontent, we find solace in angular guitar lines, distorted bass riffs and disjointed drums. We shout. We wail. We bleed. Emily Jane Corbett plays drums. Michelle Zulli plays guitar and sings. Krystal Grow plays bass and sings.

Satorii, fronted by Jerrra Blues, is at the cutting edge of an exciting new era in music - the fusion of beautiful creation and uplifting melodies with modern electronics. Members: Jerrra Blues is on lead vocals "I'm a singer/songwriter, soul inspirer, dreamer, lover, bgirl, dancer, experimenter. I create to live and inspire others to make sense." Sethro - guitar. Alex Mal - electronics and effects; keyboards. Drums - Jim St. Amour. "Our backgrounds are varied, and this drives our unique sound! We met and formed online early in 2013. First there was Jerrra, by way of Russia, who teamed up with Alex who was pursing his own style of electronica. Then they recruited Jim who imbued the music with his 30+ years of jazz and live drum n' bass experience. Then they found Sethro at Funkadelic rehearsal studios, and he brings another aspect of live energy to the band. Live electronica is the driving force of both current and future music! So, enter this present movement with Satorii and Jerrrablues and let yourself be taken to a euphoric place from which you won't want to come back!"

Ashlee Voorsanger is a comedian who combines her Texas roots, with a few years in Los Angeles, adding just a dash of her New York neuroses. Winning her first stage role in Dallas after showing up to an audition to "see what it was like," she went on to perform in theatre, film, commercials, voice overs, and print before venturing into stand up comedy. Finally able to combine her love of writing, characters, stories, and embarrassing tales -- stand up is where she found her home. Finding inspiration in legendary performers like Johnny Carson, Lily Tomlin, and Jonathan Winters (she was caught a number of times sneaking out of her room as a child to watch them on the lone family TV), Ashlee made her stand up debut on the nationally televised "The Greg Behrendt Show", and performed around LA at venues including The Improv and Room 5. She has continued studying, writing, and performing after moving to New York and has been seen at Comix, Village Lantern, and The Grisly Pear among others.
