Blending poignant lyricism with raucous-folk and folkish-rock sensibilities, Jess Kallen delivers music with unique tenderness and power. A San Francisco Bay Area native, Kallen began playing classical guitar at age five, and later gravitated towards electric guitar and other contemporary styles. She relocated to Los Angeles post-high school to study guitar and songwriting at USC’s Thornton School of Music. Citing influences from Gillian Welch to Blake Mills to Paul Simon, Kallen’s genre-rich background, strong command as a guitarist, and sensitive lyrics and melodies set her apart in the LA indie rock scene.
Kallen released her debut single “Monster” in 2018, available on streaming platforms everywhere.
Sara Mulford is a 23 year old singer-songwriter and producer from Los Angeles, California.
Mulford's decade-worth of classical piano training strengthened her love of the instrument and helped to inform the core of her songwriting. Alongside this lifetime foundation of writing and playing, one allure of Sara Mulford is her unmistakable voice. Largely inspired by the piano chops and vocal stylings of Regina Spektor, and the unique, technological talents of women such as Imogen Heap and Björk, Mulford has always strived to have a multi-faceted understanding of music.
At age twelve, Mulford began recording music in her bedroom. This blossomed into a love for music production, which she followed by getting familiar with Logic Pro, Ableton, and Pro Tools. During and after graduating from the University of Southern California's Popular Music Program, Mulford has put out an EP of original self-produced music, gigs regularly with multiple bands as a keyboardist/background vocalist, works as a personal studio assistant, and is an active member of the band The Nova Darlings. Mulford has no problem writing in multiple genres: from electronic indie pop to alternative rock to musical theatre, she strives to use her music to tell stories of empowerment, love, and longing for purpose.
