Becca Stevens
Becca Stevens
North Carolina bred, Brooklyn based singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist Becca Stevens has already received copious praise from the likes of The New York Times, describing her as “a best-kept secret” and “impressively absorbing.” Drawing upon elements of pop, indie-rock, jazz, and traditional Appalachian folk, Stevens has been hailed for her unique ability to craft exquisite compositions both for her own band, and for artists who run the gamut of genre from the legendary David Crosby, to singer José James to classical pianist Timo Andres. Stevens has toured the world with her band and collaborated with the likes of: Brad Mehldau, Esperanza Spalding, Billy Childs, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jacob Collier, Vijay Iyer and many others. Becca's music is featured on the latest Snarky Puppy Family Dinner Vol 2.

Becca's new album, Regina, which was released in March of 2017, features Laura Mvula, Jacob Collier, David Crosby and was co produced by Troy Miller (Gregory Porter, Laura Mvula, Amy Winehouse) and Michael League of Snarky Puppy.

Regina is a tribute to strong women and figures in literature, history and legend as well as her personal life (Ophelia, Venus, Elizabeth I, her Grandmother); various songs inspired by the regal and divine nature surrounding that word as well as Regina as a voice, like a trusted friend or an alter ego. Becca uses Regina as a muse or alter ego to write in a new way fearlessly mixing genres, pop, folk, rock, Jazz funk and much more!

This is the first album under Becca Stevens rather than Becca Stevens Band and marks a clear new direction in cementing her career as one of the most important, authentic and talented singer songwriters of a generation.
Emily Elbert
Emily Elbert
Emily Elbert weaves together a rhythmic soul-folk blend that is equal parts introspection and celebration. With a global spirit and DIY-passion, the she has lovingly carried her music around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows from Peru to Palestine. These experiences are reflected in her lyrics, touching on both personal journeys and the divine. Anchored by intricate guitar playing and an old-soul voice, Emily has independently released four albums, and is currently at work on the next.

Recently, Emily spent a year touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding's experimental music and theater project, "Emily's D+Evolution". The group played wild and wide-reaching shows around the world, from the Apollo Theater and the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, to the Sydney Opera House.

Solo, Emily has had the honor of opening for acts including G. Love & Special Sauce, Victor Wooten, Kaki King, Leon Russell, and Richie Havens, and collaborated with artists ranging from Ben Taylor to Dweezil Zappa. Her music has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, won awards in the U.S. and U.K., and attracted over two million YouTube views. The Boston Folk Festival notes, "Emily is among the most glowing of the upcoming generation of American singer-songwriters, if 'upcoming' even applies to this phenom any longer."
