Kiki Halliday (Nashville) — Kiki Halliday is a singer/songwriter based in Nashville, originally out of Los Angeles. Her music pulls together different aspects of blues, pop and soulful sounds to create something that is bright yet vulnerable. She is a lyricist to the core, however she maximizes her sound by pairing uncomplicated chord progressions with words that will take ahold of you, willingly or not, and bring you down beyond the surface.
Elk Walking (Chicago) — Elk Walking is an acoustic and electric guitar driven indie folk-rock band of a rare breed. Fronted by duo Savanna Dickhut and Julian Daniell, their music is energetic, electric and groovy yet still captures the folky acoustic flavors and lyrical focus of a singer/songwriter duo. The band is accented by fiery electric guitar and carried by powerful harmonies and meaningful songwriting. The filled out demanding sound of two lead singers is reminiscent of the sounds of Jefferson Airplane, or Fleetwood Mac and the songs are individually unique yet remain set in the bands signature sound; a mix of gritty and pretty, lonesome ballads, energetic love songs, and social commentary. The band frequently references and finds inspiration in the mysteries of nature and the living natural world.
Emily Clement (Nashville) — Nashville born soul-folk singer songwriter.
