DonCat
DONCAT is Duncan Nielsen, a San Francisco based songwriter and performer with a penchant for rock, soul and folk stylings. His songs draw from the deep history of California counter-culture music and discuss both the hope and uncertainty of the American dream in kaleidoscopic cynicism.
M. Lockwood Porter
The Berkeley, California-based singer-songwriter M. Lockwood Porter is part of a promising crop of up-and-coming Americana singer-songwriters. In the past three years, he has released three critically-acclaimed albums and performed all over the US, sharing the stage with acts like American Aquarium, David Wax Museum, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Water Liars, Samantha Crain, David Ramirez, Aaron Lee Tasjan, and John Moreland. He has performed at festivals like Outside Lands, Noise Pop, Norman Music Festival, and CMJ. Paste Magazine has called Porter's newest album How To Dream Again "courageous and moving while eloquently capturing the zeitgeist." In a review, Americana UK said, "Take care with M. Lockwood Porter. He is an important singer-songwriter.”
Trebuchet
Trebuchet is an indie-folk rock quartet from Petaluma, CA. Members: Lauren Haile, Paul Haile, Eliott Whitehurst and Navid Manoochehri. These four met while attaining their music degrees from Sonoma State University in Rohnert Park, CA. Trebuchet originated in 2010, releasing a self-titled EP in 2012, followed by their first full length, "Carry On" in early 2014. Later that year, the band was asked to perform at Napa's Bottle Rock Festival. In 2015, they performed an original piece at Weill Hall with the Santa Rosa Young People's Chamber Orchestra. Trebuchet's new full length "Volte-Face" will be released in the first part of the new year.
Lauren O'Connell
With some of the most beautifully understated music of this generation's country revival, San Francisco's Lauren O'Connell is a burgeoning luminary of the alternative side to that musical world, the folk-inspired heartbeat of songs both intelligent and deeply emotive.
John Elliott
The Hereafter is the America-based music project of John Elliott. John is a writer, performer, singer, player, jammer, producer, recorder, historian, camper, traveller, pilot, and cyclist. He lives in San Francisco right now, but grew up in suburban Minnesota. He had called many places home, including but not limited to: Brooklyn, Austin, suburban Chicago, several Los Angeles locations (Los Feliz, Studio City, Venice, Echo Park), and the great old American road for two years in a Honda Civic. John believes in the Bruce Springsteen live performance work ethic,
nonviolence, the Bob Dylan smirk of irreverence and humor, the American Dream that never has been and never will be, and communicating with our so-called enemies.
Avi Vinocur
Avi Vinocur has performed solo with a guitar, mandolin, and banjo on and off for years in between playing in bands. He currently performs with his band Goodnight, Texas all over the US constantly.
Maya Hall
Vocalist Maya Hall, born in Fukuoka, Japan, moved to San Francisco in 2014 in search of bigger musical pastures. The self-taught guitarist/songwriter’s chord progressions, dainty riffs, and interesting rhythms are a perfect match for her silky, sweet vocal style.
Jeremy Lyon
A former frontman of beloved bay area rockers, Tumbleweed Wanderers, Jeremy Lyon brings the same infectious songwriting to his solo set.
