PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

This performance will be seated.

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

This performance will be seated.

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

This performance will be seated.


Casting a striking presence as a performer and emanating confidence and originality as a writer, Pennsylvania born and Boston based artist Beane has quietly elevated himself as a rising force on a national level. Beane recently competed on Season 19 of American Idol and placed in the Top 12. 


Beane is creating a name for himself on his own terms. His subtle blend of pop, soul, and jazz is a unique take that not only draws inspiration from icons of the past, but also embraces the new creative possibilities that are only just now starting to be explored.

Alisa Amador’s music is a synthesis of the many styles she’s voraciously absorbed: rock, jazz, funk and alternative folk, all wrapped in the spirit of the Latin music she grew up with. NPR's Cyrena Touros calls her “a pitch-perfect rendition of my wildest dreams.” Alisa's soulful singing, poetically incisive lyrics, and syncopated rhythms are likely to make you cry, laugh, and dance all within one set. Alisa released her debut EP, Narratives, in 2021.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

This performance will be seated.


20-year old Thomas Headon was born in London. At age 5 his family moved to Melbourne, Australia, where he grew up.

As a young teenager he started posting cover versions of his favourite songs on Youtube, which helped him to start building an international fanbase. Influenced by the likes of The 1975, Coldplay, Harry Styles, Tyler The Creator and Rex Orange County, Thomas also started writing and producing original songs.

In 2019 he moved back to London to pursue his career in music and released his self- written and self-produced debut single Grace in September 2019, followed by Clean Me Up. His debut EP The Greatest Hits gained over 22 million streams already.

As a follow up, Thomas released his second EP in September 2020. The Goodbye EP included the singles Loving You, Focus, UrbanAngel1999 and Cut And Bleach My Hair. All tracks received high praises and plays from radio, including tripleJ unearthed and BBC Radio1.

In late 2020 he was one of the first artists to curate Spotifyʼs Our Generation playlist and triple j named him a "seriously impressive force in pop music" and a "star on the rise."

Thomas sold out his first ever headline shows in London, two nights at Heaven (1000 capacity each). The shows will be part of his 17-date UK tour, now rescheduled to November 2021, for which most dates are sold out already.

While being back in Australia earlier this year, he was able to play not only a few festival gigs but also his first ever headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney. His last single Bored, a feature with American singer-songwriter Lizzy McAlpine was released in March 2021 and was called "a pretty cute song" by his own mother.

With a constantly growing loyal and highly engaged fanbase on social media and more music to be released later this summer not even a lockdown can stop him.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

This performance will be seated.


Shubh Saran is a New York-based guitarist, composer, and producer who has performed globally with his band throughout the United States, India, Canada, Bangladesh, Vietnam and Mexico. Having grown up in six different countries, his career has been shaped by a mixture of influences. Saran’s intricate compositions fuse sounds from modern jazz, neo-soul, and rock with classical and contemporary Indian music. In October 2021, Saran independently released his second full-length album and fourth overall release titled inglish – a groundbreaking work that explores concepts of assimilation, global identity, and native culture.


Pitchfork described inglish as “a heartfelt exploration of the ups and downs of being part of the world’s fastest-growing floating tribe—part global citizen, part cultural refugee,” and named the album to its list of Best Jazz and Experimental Music of 2021.

Before moving to New York City to start his music career, Saran studied at Berklee. During this stage of his life, Saran was developing his craft, gaining opportunities to collaborate with artists such as A.R. Rahman, and establishing friendships and connections who would later in life become bandmates and collaborators. 


His newest album inglish, entirely written, arranged, and produced by Saran, is a big step forward as an artist and composer. After releasing Becoming in late 2019, Saran and his seven-piece band toured briefly in the United States and India, and upon returning to the U.S. were faced with what became the beginning of the Covid-19 lockdown. During this time, Saran quickly began writing and recording demos for what would ultimately transform into inglish. The new album explores new musical territory, as Saran incorporates predominant Indian and Middle Eastern instruments for the first time, while expanding the use of modular synthesizers in the momentous arrangements.


Bahar Badieitabar is an Iranian Performance and Composition double-major student at Berklee, benefiting from the presidential scholarship. Her principal instrument is the Oud, an Iranian Classical instrument. At the age of 12, Bahar began her musical training at Tehran Music School, where she received her Music Diploma in 2017. Her experiences throughout the years performing the Oud alongside different musicians with eclectic backgrounds have helped her develop her own approach to music making which is based on Iranian Classical Music with elements from contemporary music.


Bahar won first place at the Iranian Youth National Music Festival for two consecutive years at the ages of 16 and 17. She has performed at various music festivals and many venues in Iran and the U.S. Bahar has formed a quintet called “cypress” with Paolo Peruzzi and some of the greatest Berklee musicians in which they perform their own original compositions.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

This performance will be seated.


Nick Black is a fun, optimistic, and authentic artist from Memphis, TN. Influenced by the feel-good music of Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars, and the musicality of legacy acts such as Al Green and Sting, Nick has created his music to sound modern and unique, yet familiar and nostalgic.


His stage presence as an entertainer is quite something to behold. Nick pulls the audience in and doesn’t let them go. He creates an experience that he wants everyone to be part of. Pulling people up from the crowd, singing to a fan in the front row...everyone's included. He grew up between two worlds: his family’s deep ties to church, and his hometown of Memphis where Soul, RnB, Rock N’ Roll, and Blues legends made names for themselves, Black’s sound is an organically grown phenomenon, honed at open mic nights, in church, at hundreds of club gigs, and now on larger stages across the USA.


Since his first album in 2012, The Soul Diaries, his authenticity and passion has been the foundation of his identity, both as a person and as an artist. In March and April of 2020, with touring being shut down, Nick embarked on a record-setting 30 songs in 30 days called “Nick Black’s $ongs from $cratch” on his Twitch channel writing songs in real time from samples, riffs and lyric lines sent in by viewers. He has since written over 100 songs in front of a quickly growing live streaming audience, 12 of which landed on his brand new TWITCH #1 album, which has over 100,000 plays on Spotify.

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.
