Kate Isenberg

“Impeccable songwriting” — in the words of one reviewer — makes Los Angeles-based Kate Isenberg stand out from other girls (and guys) with guitars. With clear, soulful vocals and alternate-tuning guitar riffs that make unusual chords sound easy, Isenberg’s style of folk-pop is both sophisticated and accessible. Listeners gravitate to her songs for both the ear candy and the thought-provoking, storytelling lyrics.

Her first studio solo album, THE TIME COMES ON HUMMING TRACKS, was a finalist for the annual Indie Acoustic Project’s Best Female Singer-Songwriter Album. Her second studio album, GOLD RUSH TOWN, received college and commercial radio play around the U.S. and was an IAP finalist for Best Lyrics. The albums were co-produced by Isenberg with Jon Evans (bassist, Tori Amos) and feature guest performers such as accordionist/organist Julie Wolf (Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco) and trumpeter Erik Jekabson (John Mayer).

In addition to being a songwriter, Isenberg is an animator. She has animated her own songs as well as those of other songwriters. She is now at work developing an animated series for television.

Taylor Alexander

Taylor Alexander is a true independent artist, he plays an acute, bluesy acoustic guitar paired with a rich, soul stricken voice. He’s released 4 EPs and two singles since 2012. “Wasteland”, his latest currently on Spotify playlists. Genuine, honest lyrics make listeners instant fans, while the conversationalist elements to his songwriting enhance his fresh material, making it relatable to audiences young and old.

Taylor is currently on his third tour in 2017, this time, switching gears to support comedian/friend Rajiv Satyal on an 18 date, 10 city tour. The “Taking A Stand” tour showcases a comedic view on how MUSIC can be our unifier in these divided times. They’re coming off a sold out show in NYC’s, The Cutting Room, with dates in Cincinnati, Chicago, Phoenix, Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Francisco still to come.

Alexander’s true uniqueness lies in his one man show. He has devised a technique called the “audible illusion” where he beat boxes while playing guitar, simultaneously humming a melody over top. He seamlessly switches gears between this and traditional playing/singing. However, the use of his mouth and lips are creating the beat, therefore, deceiving the eye … similar to ventriloquism or as though a loop pedal is being used. But it’s all live! You have to see AND hear it to believe it!
