Del Water Gap is the solo project of songwriter and producer S. Holden Jaffe, born in New
England. He has already amassed a cult-like following with more than 52 million streams
worldwide and a slew of collaborations all before a debut album. Most recently he was
featured on two songs “(Does It Feel Slow?)” and “New Song'' from Maggie Rogers' 2020
album Notes from the Archive: Recordings 2011-2016. In 2020 he collaborated with Claud on
their track “My Body,” which Nylon called “an intimate and bittersweet ballad.”
His newest singles “Sorry I Am,” (his debut release with Mom+Pop) and “Hurting Kind”
have been well received by fans & media alike. “Sorry I Am” is a deeply confessional track,
accompanied by an alluring music video filmed in a picturesque desert in Joshua Tree
directed by Angela Ricciardi. This single follows his breakout 2020 track “Ode To A
Conversation Stuck In Your Throat,” which racked up over 8.5 million streams on Spotify
alone. It was the soundtrack to actors Margaret Qualley and Kaitlyn Dever’s summer
pandemic dance party, and earned praise from Vogue UK as an “ear-worm.”

Brother Ali is a highly respected Hip Hop artist, speaker and community leader from Minneapolis, MN. His two-decade resume includes eight critically acclaimed albums, mentorships with iconic Hip Hop legends Chuck D and Rakim, and performances on late night talk shows with Jimmy Fallon and Conan O’Brien.
His provocative and uplifting brand of Hip Hop has earned him coveted press features like Rolling Stone’s 40th anniversary edition and Source Magazine’s legendary “Hip Hop Quotables”, while his outspoken social justice message has landed him on government watch lists. He’s also lectured at universities from Princeton to Stanford and delivered the keynote address at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum.
When he’s not rocking the mic at Coachella, or being arrested for civil disobedience in support of marginalized communities, Brother Ali travels the world learning and teaching Islamic Spirituality under some of today’s renown Muslim leaders. In addition to leading worship services and classes across the country, he co-founded The Gemali Project, an organization that helps Muslim converts and spiritual seekers access the beauty of the Islamic tradition.
Brother Ali’s latest release, Secrets & Escapes, surprised fans when it was released without warning in November 2019. Evidence from Dilated Peoples provided the beats, delivering a dusty, downtempo, lo-fi soundscape for Ali to revisit his basement roots. Pharoahe Monch, Talib Kweli and CS Armstrong also bless the special unannounced project with their own genius.

A 25-year-old guitar phenom and innovative songwriter, Marcus King can simultaneously switch from swaggering rock to supersonic soul – with his vocal powers taking center stage on debut solo record El Dorado, out now. The album is a Dan Auerbach produced, genre-bending release from a world-class young talent, that will establish him as one of the most soulful voices of his generation.
Marcus started learning guitar at age three or four. He has played professionally since he was 11 and always knew he wanted to make music his life. A fourth-generation musician, Marcus has followed in his family’s footsteps. His grandfather was a country guitarist, and his father continues to perform live.
The Marcus King Band founded in Greenville, South Carolina in 2013, is his tight knit group. Drummer Jack Ryan, bass player Stephen Campbell, trumpeter/trombonist Justin Johnson, sax/steel guitarist Dean Mitchell along with Marcus—bring an irreplaceable combination of commitment, craft and soul to their work and are one of the hardest working bands today. They have played 140 shows in the last year and sold out countless venues, including Brooklyn Bowl three nights in a row and Marcus’ namesake festival, The Marcus King Band Family Reunion. This year, the festival featured acts such as Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit, Yonder Mountain String Band, Josh Ritter, Amanda Shires, and many more.
From the start, Marcus earned rave reviews for his kinetic musicianship with The Washington Post describing him as a “guitar phenom” at age 20. Carolina Confessions, helmed by GRAMMY-Award winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson), topped the Americana radio charts and received critical acclaim from the likes of VICE Noisey, NPR and Rolling Stone, who described him as an “electrifying rock performer.” Marcus also recently embarked on a string of dates with Chris Stapleton, who called him “one of his favorite artists” when he recently joined him onstage.
Marcus King continues to re-write his fast moving and surprising story. You can hear change in the wisdom of his lyrics and deeply soulful vocals, bringing sheer musical command to every performance.
