Brett Newski


The self-dubbed “power-folk” performer typically spends more than half of each year on the road, usually couch-surfing, sleeping in hostels or balled on floors of new acquaintances in order to spread his songs to any place that will listen to them. Newski has played in more than a dozen countries and in every continent except Antarctica.

Zach Pietrini Band


Nominated two years running for Best Band in Milwaukee (2014-2015, 88Nine Radio Milwaukee). the Zach Pietrini Band charges on with its newest release Highways and Heartache. Their sound consistently evolves, but doesn't stray from its roots of brutally honest and instantly familiar tavern tunes. The songwriting has "sharpened and become more focused" (Shepherd Express), with recent features on The Troubadour Show, and NoiseTrade. They are, as ever, driven by their desire to connect with people through the simple beauty of story and song.
