Kiah Victoria has traveled the globe gracing audiences with her deeply soulful sound and life giving vocal performance. Kiah's music and timeless lyricism speak to the spirit, body and mind. The fresh young songbird just released a 7-track EP entitled ‘Memo’ now available on all music platforms and on vinyl at kiahvictoria.com. Follow her @kiahvictoria.
Ali Myers is a 21 year old folk/soul songwriter and artist from San Francisco. Her music promotes self and social awareness, with atypical chord progressions and soaring melodies through which she reveals her world view. She has 4 singles released currently, with more on the way. A student at NYU's Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, Ali is currently developing an EP entitled Recovery as well as an album to be released in this upcoming year.
Christiané Fox is a neo-soul artist, pianist, and producer. Her music is a combination of jazz-infused R&B and 70s soul, with a twist of gospel. Fox explores themes of life, love and outer space with the goal of providing some positive respite in one's frantic storms of life. She recently released a single entitled "When You Come Back," which made UK soul radio stations in 2017, and is currently working on an EP release in the spring.
By way of Lagos and London, Halima is a self-produced artist based in NYC. Her music is
singular and draws from eclectic inspirations like Erykah Badu, Lily Allen, and Destiny’s Child.
As a producer, Halima uniquely blends electronic music with bedroom Pop/RnB to create
something both nostalgic and new.
Following in the footsteps of other female R&B singers, Halima has found her music as a way
to process her relationships to others, but most importantly the vital relationship she has with
herself. Halima’s latest single "Do Better" is an introspective ode to self-love with an upbeat
hook that complements her soulful R&B voice; it’s a graduation from the artist’s slower last
release, "If Love was Green," that teased at the themes of this track. Condemning her previous
self-destructive behavior, Halima decides it’s time to put herself, her needs and her desires
before that of anyone else’s.
Her singles have made waves across steaming platforms, garnering hundreds of thousands of
plays and landing on playlists like Spotify’s Fresh Finds, Apple Music’s Feels and Pitchfork’s
What’s Good. This Spring, she is playing shows across the US as she moves towards release
of her next single, due out early Summer.
Currently a student at NYU’s prestigious Clive Davis Institute of Music, Jack Schneider has been making music since he was three years old. Initially inspired by folk and roots music, Jack's advanced musicianship and songwriting abilities have led him to collaborate with some of his biggest heroes. In addition to working as a session guitarist in Atlanta, New York, and Nashville, Jack has played with iconic artists such as Five For Fighting, Vince Gill, Jason Isbell, Emmylou Harris, Amy Grant, Don Schlitz, The Time Jumpers and onstage at the Grand Ole Opry with bluegrass legend Mike Snider. Jack is currently in the process of recording and self-producing his debut record. The first single, “Remember To Dance (feat. Vince Gill)” is featured in a documentary about the legendary Bluebird Cafe, which premiered at SXSW 2019. The song will be released officially this spring.
Maxwell Musick is a pop artist from Tulsa Oklahoma who, since moving to NYC three years ago, has been writing enigmatically vulnerable music that is both intensely self-reflective and boldly empowering. Musick’s muses include boys, first dates, self-destructive tendencies, and just being fucking tired. Drawing inspiration in the contrast between his life in Oklahoma and in NYC he is ready to share his life’s highlights and mistakes, in detail, with a slew of singles releasing in 2019
Born in Belgium to Congolese parents and raised in the US, Murielle is a Pop/R&B artist using her diverse background to tell her story. Inspired by the pure vocals layers of R&B girl groups and Congolese Gospel choirs, ambient electronic elements that warm the soul, and heart-beat like percussion, she seeks to make her music a spiritual and bodily experience, all in a pop sensible context.
An expansive vocalist who melds the glam and drive of rock n’ roll with the introspection and experimentation of ’90’s songwriters, Talullah Ruff unifies visual artistry with her piano-driven sonic storytelling. Her love of literature and puzzling words together has resulted in over 200 unreleased songs and two unpublished novels, as well as a multitude of short stories, poems, scripts, and comics. She strives to provide refuge and catharsis in her music– but also to provide an accurate reflection of humanity, no matter how ugly or uncomfortable the depiction may feel to the listener. She self-produced and released debut EP What Is Honest in 2017 with an accompanying self-published lyric and art zine, but is currently finishing its followup while performing across New York.
