Maddie Ross
Maddie Ross
Maddie Ross moved to Los Angeles at 17 to study "pop music" at USC. This is an absolutely absurd degree, but it did introduce her to some of best musicians and artists in LA, including her producer/co-writer Wolfy. They released Maddie's first EP, Television Is My Friend, in 2014. Two years later they created Making Out Is Easy, a grungy, guitar-driven alt pop EP about growing up female, being comfortable with sex and sexuality, and of course the ups and downs of romantic relationships as a 23-year-old. Upon the release of the first single, Maddie was nominated for LA Deli Magazine’s Artist of the Month. The 405 predicted that the EP “could be one of the year's best under-the-radar releases”.
When not making music, Maddie spends her time raising her blood pressure reading the comments on trending news articles, cooking for friends, teaching SAT courses, and doing consulting work for her parents' Corporate Diversity Consulting Firm. She loves babies, female singers who scream and not having to explain basic truths about gender, race and sexuality to new people.
Rosie Tucker
Rosie Tucker
Rosie Tucker is a songwriter with a uniquely lyrical style and a knack for the bittersweet. In May of 2015 she released her first collection of songs, Lowlight, on Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Narrative driven and steeped in imagery, the songs have moved friends, critics, and strangers alike. As one journalist put it, “Tucker has a gift for molding pain into unexpected metaphors from every day life and a wild imagination” (SwellTone). Rosie has leant her songs to performances curated by Sokamba Performing Arts Company and The Altar Collective (an independent literary magazine) and has recently taken to collaborating with film friends. She was a finalist in the 2014 Kerrville Folk Festival’s acclaimed New Folk songwriting contest and was a featured performer at the 2015 LA Times Festival of Books. She recently journeyed to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to record several sessions for Fogged Clarity, an arts and poetry review. In addition to her solo project, Rosie writes for and plays bass in Gypsum, a post-rock band.
The Love-Inns
We're a SadPunk JournalPop power trio that sings about boys we've never dated and high speed angst! We are under no circumstances a girl band and we are "very good".
Runnner
Bandcamp music for SoundCloud kids.
Sofia Wolfson
Sofia Wolfson
Sofia Wolfson is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Los Angeles, currently living in Boston for school. Her musical influences range from Joni Mitchell to Blake Mills, The Band to Fiona Apple, which can be heard in her music. Brought up on 1960s folk and rock, Sofia started playing guitar at 6, writing music at 9, and played her first gig when she was 13. Throughout her high school years at The Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, Sofia played all around town at venues like The Hi Hat, The Sanctuary Santa Monica, The Lost Room, Genghis Cohen, and more.

Sofia released her first full-length record when she was 16, called Hunker Down. Her latest EP Side Effects, a 3-song release, was produced by Marshall Vore (Ryan Adams, Phoebe Bridgers, Korey Dane) at Vore’s home studio in Pasadena. “Snake Eyes,” “Write It Down,” and “Capsule,” are brought to life by some incredible musicians like Lee Pardini (Dawes), Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley), Dylan Day (Corey Harper, Korey Dane), and more.

Sofia will soon be releasing a few music videos, as well as new music.
