RYVOLI
RYVOLI
RYVOLI is an aspiring Indie/Folk duo from Lexington, KY. Pennsylvanian Samantha Howard and Lexington native Jenn Whiteman met in Paris, France while working for the same non-profit organization. The two started singing together while Jenn was recording her first solo album there and quickly realized that their sound was better together. Leaning into inspiration from JOSEPH and Penny & Sparrow, the friends are currently in the process of recording and releasing their first single.
BRIDGE 19
BRIDGE 19
"Music with real passion, steel-toed drive, and the ability to fill the listener with intense wanderlust."

"Equal parts pop and folk, the arrangements of Bridge 19 creep into Americana as they harmonize like siblings. But mostly, this band displays a clear comprehension of being working musicians and have the heart and attitude to gracefully ascent as an act."

In March of 2015, Bridge 19 will release its first pieces of new music since 2012's "The Fall Back". But a lot has happened since then. Audrey Cecil & Amanda Lucas, the band's songwriters and founders knew there was more when they released their first record. It was strong. But not whole. Only a couple of the songs on that record were co-written by the two- the rest were songs one or the other had written solo. There was more. The band accompanying the duo were studio musicians. There was more. Shortly after the 2012 release, Bridge 19 officially added a third, Meg Samples (who seems to have been born with drumsticks in her hands). The band has spent the years in between co-writing, honing a sound, and building on this harmony-driven, undeniably evocative music they create. Now there's more. With the recent addition of Jeff Faith on bass, the band is realizing what they knew there always could have been. When you hear this new music, you know it's been waiting to be heard.
Michigander
Michigander
An underdog dream from an underdog state. The product of restless feet and the need to say something.

Michigander has been the toil and passion of Jason Singer since 2013. It's being built in basements and churches and vans without mufflers. It's living on stages, floors, and in studios—sounding big and packing light.

Jason has played shows with artists like Tokyo Police Club, JR JR, Twin Peaks and Ra Ra Riot. He's recorded sessions with Daytrotter, SoFar and Real Feels. All while the band is still in its infancy.

Keep your eyes and ears pointed toward the Great Lakes State. Beautiful things are being built there.

MICHIGANDER IS A TOPIC OF CONVERSATION.

"You look for a certain confidence and honesty, and this music has it." - Tobias Jesso Jr.

"A storyteller with, killer hooks and structure."
- Leo Bautista (Rival Summers)
