Marty O'Reilly
Marty O'Reilly
This four-man orchestra seamlessly weaves trance based blues music, harkening back to John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf, with a drunken minor swing comparable to some of Tom Waits’ darker works.

Marty O’Reilly hail from Santa Cruz, California. In addition to O’Reilly on the electrified Resonator guitar and vocals, the band features Chris Lynch on the Fiddle, Ben Berry on upright bass, and Matt Goff joining in on the drums. Within the three years since this project started, the band is already touring nationally, internationally, and selling out venues along the West Coast and throughout the United Kingdom.
Emily Afton
Emily Afton
Emily Afton’s voice is transporting. Smokey, powerful, and emotive, Emily delivers her soul to you in the form of nostalgic indie-pop songs - with ribbons of folk and electronica interwoven. Solo or with her band, Afton aims to snatch your heart with her live performance playing haunting vocal-driven narratives in the style of Fiona Apple followed by dark synths, then uptempo dance tracks that can turn an aloof audience into a dancing crowd. Last fall one of her performances did just this for Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins, who promptly asked her to join their U.S. tour as the opening band. An inspired Afton quickly returned home to finish her debut full-length album.

ARCHETYPE [album], released in September 2016, and has been called an indie-pop explosion from "an artist who is clearly on an ascent" (Pure Volume). The episodic debut LP, co-produced by David Earl and Lila Rose reveals a new edge and depth to the once sweet singer-songwriter's music. ARCHETYPE laces together stories of an artist discovering both the sonic and emotional worlds and ghosts that exist within us all.

Emily and her band plan to tour the new album across the U.S. throughout 2017.
