Billy Stobo

Born from the tradition of bringing good stories to music, Brother Billy’s first release “Don’t Fall Asleep on the Tracks” has conjured up spirits of the past with tales of jilted love, pointed historical commentary, and folks having raucous good time.

With the evocative puberty anthem “Red Ribbon” to the cynical retort of “Your Grand Design” he gets right to the sweet, the sad, and the naughty.

His Hopeless Choir is a revolving door of many talented musicians that give a little to help a lot in lifting up the spirit of his oh-so-spirited music.

From the snow-capped mountains of Oklahoma to the pale-painted deserts of Louisiana – from the coal-firing cost of California to the sweeping serenity of New York City – everyone could use the kind of smile that comes from spending a little time with Brother Billy.

St. John’s Dance

He’s from West Virginia. She’s from California. They fell in love, music is the byproduct. Xander Hitzig’s rich instrumental mastery and lyricism meets Nicole Olney’s powerful songwriting and sweet strumming in perfect harmony with their brand new duet project called St. John’s Dance. Their songs pay refreshing homage to country-folk heroes of the past and present while formulating an entirely new sound of their own. They highlight what is grounded and true in music from both sides of the American continent resulting in a tasty cocktail of blended genre reckoning the likes of many such as The Carter Family, Woodie Guthrie, Mandolin Orange, And Townes Van Zandt.

St. John’s Dance formed in Los Angeles officially within the last year and is about to release their first EP in the spring.

Markie Erin

An Ohio native and LA transplant, Markie Erin is a multi-instrumentalist with an emphasis on vocals, keys, and guitar.

Drawing inspiration from emotive indie songwriters like Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers, Markie’s music is an open exploration of self-identity. Her emphasis on expressive lyrics draws you into her world, residual traumas and all.

As a solo act, Markie uses repetitive guitar motifs to underlay her feelings. Her repertoire of composed work includes myriad intimate acoustic recordings, and a series of singles, precursors to an album, heavily reliant on ambient guitar and intentional piano melodies. She’s focused on the release of her first album, Eternities, in the coming months, in addition to playing locally in Los Angeles.
