Abby Jeanne

(Milwaukee)
I am just a product of a haunted jukebox and the golden heart degenerates. Nothing beats writing the narrative for the cosmic radio and thriving off of the lust for life. Dreams, schemes and traveling the world. It’s Rock N’ Roll for the dreamers soul. Every note feels like a sanctified connection echoing into the chambers of heart ache and passion.My spirit is made from the fire of rebellion, and the desire to spread it wild. Tho my character may translate as a one with rigid strength and angst, in truth it is just the golden armor of a powerful woman who fights fear with courage head on.  Love is the key and music is my language. With this tool I hope to heal and translate the traumas of our lives.-Abby Jeanne

Bully

(Nashville)
Sub Pop

Lydia Lunch

(NYC )
Lydia Lunch and Weasel Walter present "Brutal Measures," a longform composition featuring tense spoken word versus manic free drumming outbursts, glued together by cryptic electronics.Lydia Lunch is an American singer, poet, writer, actress and self-empowerment speaker. Her career was spawned by the New York no wave scene.

The Shivas

(Portland, OR)

The Shivas are a rock and roll band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2006. In the years since forming they have brought their raucous dance party to almost all 50 states, and over 25 countries worldwide, meanwhile releasing five full-length albums and three EPs on labels such as K Records and Burger Records.

Fiona Silver

(New York City )

"From the passion in her voice to the delicacy in her strut, she is a dark sparkle with a dominant presence. Needless to say, Silver is a force to be reckoned with."
-Huffington Post

"Fiona Silver’s sexy, seemingly cigarette-stained voice makes her instantly recognizable as an honest-to-god East Village girl. Yet though her 60s-girl-group-meets-David-Lynch guitar-pop is gritty and sexual, a significant part of her appeal is her willingness to reveal an underlying vulnerability."
-Black Book Magazine

“The next big artist to land on the music scene...be prepared to watch this rising star burn brightly in a big way.”
-Inked Magazine

"...this kick ass girl has a Presence, with a capital P."
-Galore Magazine
