KEVIN GARRETT

Kevin Garrett is a singer/songwriter based in Brooklyn, New York. His debut EP Mellow Drama, which includes songs “Coloring” and “Control,” received critical acclaim from a variety of media sources along with strong support from artists the likes of Sam Smith and Katy Perry. Kevin has been heavy into touring for much of the last year, including dates with James Vincent McMorrow, Hey Rosetta!, and several music festivals. He ended 2015 touring with X Ambassadors and Skylar Grey, all the while preparing a full length LP.


VERSKOTZI

VERSKOTZI is lead by singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Joey Verskotzi – who started recording as a solo artist upon moving to Minneapolis in 2010 & has released 3 albums since. The band’s latest release, ‘Waving’, perked heads across the country, describing Verskotzi as a mix of “the drugged-out dance of Cherub, the melodic synths of Justice and the sky-high, silky voice of Baths… the indie-pop stew of VERSKOTZI” (Sound in the Static). Verskotzi’s songwriting has been described as using “imaginative electro-pop melodies” & “sounds of oldies past…Verskotzi never fails to impress” (Examiner.com).
