John Isaac Watters
John Isaac Watters
Born in Mexico City, John Isaac Watters grew up in Mexico, & Tucson, AZ. In 2002 He moved to Los Angeles to attend architecture school. He has independently released 3 albums: Parachute Tramps in 2009, Casas in 2012 and Campanas in 2013. Besides touring occasionally he maintains a monthly residency- every first friday at the Hi Hat in Highland Park.

John Isaac Watters is an understated, determined and diverse songwriter who touches on country, folk and even a little gospel to make carefully crafted songs that drift to land somewhere between Townes Van Zandt and Leonard Cohen. -LA WEEKLY

John Isaac Watters sings as if he's just completed a marathon. One can practically hear the sweat dripping from his brow as his voice shakes, quivers and cracks as if these Southwestern ramblers are the most important thing in the world. -L.A. TIMES
Matt Rose
Matt Rose
Born in Kansas City on July 8, 1991, Matt Rose has had a passion for music since he was a youngster watching his older brother compose. His love of poetry, enthusiasm for composition and melody, and his pure enjoyment of performance made songwriting the most obvious and natural choice for his musical career. In addition, he stems much of his musical inspiration from artists like John Mayer, Kendrick Lamar, Andre 3000, Pharrell, Chance The Rapper and Frank Ocean. Rose has been featured in many publications, including but not limited to GMAD, The Kollection, Improper Bostonian, Kiss FM, Cypher League, etc., as his music is well-received. He honed his early songwriting and performance skills at Berklee College of Music from 2010 to 2012.

Matt Rose’s music is a lush soul sonicscape underscored with live drums and a pop sensibility. When combined with unassuming vocal delivery and lyrical motifs, this culmination makes for a recipe of new sonic ground.
Laura Jean Anderson
Laura Jean Anderson
Laura Jean Anderson, born in Olympia, Washington and now residing in Los-Angeles, is an artist stretching the boundaries of the human emotion. With one foot rooted in her love for old American music, she carries on the tradition of rock n roll while pushing the boundaries of the places modern music can go. Her original music takes a firm twist on old rock n roll roots, offering an opportunity for a new sound, new wave, for this new time. Laura Jean's debut EP "Righteous Girl" is now available & full length record is coming soon.
JACARANDA
Jacaranda is the brainchild of bassist/singer/composer Eliana Athayde. While she readily admits to her love of Jeff Buckley and Radiohead, a large part of Eliana's sound and style comes from jazz, classical, and Brazilian music. These influences give Jacaranda a sound that's satisfyingly hard to pin down. You may know Eliana from the Hi Fi Honeydrops, Rachel Goodrich and the GRRRLS, or RT 'n the 44's. She presently plays bass with Nick Waterhouse, and is finishing up a full length Jacaranda album.
