Olivia Frances (pop/folk):
When Olivia Frances walks on stage, her infectious positive energy and powerful stage presence captures a room. After winning four distinguished awards in 2018 alone, this pop/folk artist is now working on her highly-anticipated third release. Blending nature-inspired lyrics with ethereal vocals and organic guitar picking, Frances’s unique “sunshine-story-pop” sound is a flowery mix of Colbie Caillat’s catchy acoustic melodies, Joni Mitchell’s unique vocal arrangements, and Florence and the Machine’s energetic, emotive performance.
Check her out here:
Colin Jalbert (electronic)
When Colin Jalbert isn’t behind the kit for acts like Mammal Dap, Kat Wright, Eric Krasno Band, Heather Maloney and many more, he’s behind the computer monitor meticulously slicing audio and attempting to make samplers accomplish the unthinkable. Using equal parts precise and reckless programming, Jalbert creates compositions dictated by his motions on the drumset. The result is risky, hyper-engaged, and very human electronic music, drawing from innovators like Squarepusher, Boards of Canada, and Aphex Twin.
