PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Comprised of Addie Sartino, Brandon Yangmi, Pierce Turcotte, and Austin Fraser, the spirit of purposeful sharing has served as something of a lifeline for Kansas City-band The Greeting Committee. Formed in 2014, soon after Sartino and Yangmi got their start playing local open-mic nights, the band self-released their debut EP It's Not All That Bad in fall 2015. The EP's lead single Hands Down quickly became a breakout hit, paving the way for The Greeting Committee's signing to Harvest Records when they were all still in high school.

Nicholas Lussier and Charles Dahlke formed the Brazen Youth within the otherworldly vacuum of the 300-year-old Ashlawn Farm, located in Lyme, Connecticut. Timeless and freeing, Ashlawn served as a perfect birthplace of the Brazen Youth's debut, The Ever Dying Bristlecone Man. A heavily conceptual record,  Ever Dying is a world with endless nooks in which you can lose yourself, containing meticulous threads of  layered tracks and arrangements that amplify the emotionally riveting nature of these lyric-driven songs. Upon adding Micah Rubin to the band's lineup, The Brazen Youth emerged with a wild-spirited presence into the East Coast scene, soon gaining an empowered and fresh fan base. The band released two more bodies of work: their sophomore record Primitive Initiative (2018), and their EP 15 Billion Eyes (2019), and toured the US extensively up until 2020.

After making their Harvest debut with the Meeting People Is Easy EP in 2017 and the subsequent release of This Is It, the band spent much of the next few years on the road, with sold-out headline shows in major markets such as Chicago, Austin, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis. To date, they've toured with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Tennis, Hippo Campus, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise and taken the stage at leading festivals like Lollapalooza and SXSW, in addition to delivering the I'm Afraid I'm Not Angry EP in late 2019 and appearing in Netflix's To All the Boys: Always and Forever in 2021. The coming months have a lot more in store from the band with their second album out on September 24th entitled Dandelion.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Katy Kirby is a songwriter and indie rock practitioner with an affinity for unspoken rules, misunderstanding, and boredom. She was born, raised, and homeschooled by two ex-cheerleaders in small-town Texas and started singing in church, amidst the pasteurized-pop choruses of evangelical worship, about which she shares acute perceptions.


The five members of Sun June spent their early years spread out across the United States, from the boonies of the Hudson Valley to the sprawling outskirts of LA. Having spent their college years within the gloomy, cold winters of the North East, Laura Colwell and Stephen Salisbury found themselves in the vibrant melting-pot of inspiration that is Austin, Texas. Meeting each other while working on Terrence Malick’s ‘Song to Song’, the pair were immediately taken by the city’s bustling small clubs and honky-tonk scene, and the fact that there was always an instrument within reach, always someone to play alongside.

Tory Silver is a singer/songwriter based in Boston, Massachusetts. Inspired largely by The Beatles, Nirvana and Feist, Tory creates a fresh sound with a distinct punch. Known for her interesting chord progressions and warm voice, Silver uses her music not only as an outlet lyrically, but as an opportunity to create something captivating on the guitar. Studying the guitar for the last decade, Tory’s music is crafted with detail in mind. In October, NPR tweeted her latest EP, Pepper, was the best thing on their October playlist.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

KAINA is a first-generation Latina, born and raised in Chicago. Since the release of her debut EP sweet asl in 2016, she has created generational music that surpasses borders, a unified expression of her native Chicago coupled with her Venezuelan and Guatemalan heritage. From collaborating with peers like Saba, The O’My’s, and Sen Morimoto, and through multidisciplinary work around the city with various organizations, she has found a sound for herself that is gentle, yet full of intent. A listener can feel the intimacy resonating in her lyrics, as she pens odes about love, legacy, and ancestry, and how those concepts become more complex as one grows older. Her 2019 album Next to the Sun (Sooper Records) was featured in Pitchfork, Fader, Teen Vogue, and NPR and resulted in her touring as support with Cuco, Sleater-Kinney, and Durand Jones and the Indications. Her forthcoming album, It Was a Home (City Slang Records), releases March 4, 2022 and will be followed by both North America and European headline tours.
