***MINOR BIRDS (Oakland, CA)***
A classically trained pianist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist, C.Wilde spins poetic tales, with a voice oscillating between a silky coo and a guttural howl. At heart, her musical gems take form as emotionally-receptive storytelling. Intrinsically poetic, Wilde’s music is about the journey, rather than a set destination.

***D.PEL (Portland, OR)
D. Pel is the messenger, mouthpiece, and fall guy for the existential thoughts and narratives of Dan Pelley. The voice of Dan Pelley croons and growls, yells and professes in a manner that belongs naturally to him, honoring his roots, intertwining old-time folk with indie rock. Songs push through solemnity with celebration, and depression with love.
***The W Lovers (Seattle)***
Fleur and Wesley Wood have made their mark on the live music scene all over the American West, playing over 100 shows a year, since their inception in 2014.
The sophomore album "This Little Town,' was produced by Ryan Hadlock (Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers) and was released June 2019. 'This Little Town' made it to #1 on the Roots Alternative Folk Chart for three weeks and hit #8 on NAAC Folk Chart. Voted #2 album of the month on Americana Highways in July and made several college radio top 10 lists across the US.
