Stesha Cano

From her website:

Most often described as "the voice of Blue-Eyed Soul", singer-songwriter Stesha Cano's music is genre-bending. In her debut album, "Like a Bee", Cano shares her sorrows and victories. She invites the listener to share in her poignant love, subsequent heartache, and invariable triumph. Equally comfortable singing about love and devotion ("Glass Walls") and belting out you-done-me-wrong anthems ("Like a Bee", "I'm Sorry"), she evokes a range of emotion one can't help but be moved by. Like Stesha herself, her music is a dichotomy. Her lyrics are playful yet profound. For Like a Bee, Cano utilized the finest musicians to create complex layering and sophisticated progressions. Though the album features a full studio band including horns and auxiliary percussion, the songs are strong enough to resonate with live audiences when performed by Cano's powerhouse voice accompanied by only an acoustic guitar. From pubs to pavillions along the East Coast, Stesha Cano performs from her heart and sings from her soul.


Excerpts from their press release:

The swedish rockband GIRI are now releasing their second album Fidget. The first single,  "Lost and Found," has already been on rotation throughout radiostations in Europe. Fidget is a twelve track album and the songs are written, produced and mastered by GIRI. The Girisound is a perfect mix of analog synthezisers, distorted Fender jaguar and sitar. This time the band involved sitar player Stian Grimstad to add that extra feeling to the sound. GIRI are based in Stockholm. Their debut album was released in the end of 2006 and the singles "Do it", "Save Me" and "Shadow of A Doubt," where on radio rotation in USA, Sweden and the rest of Europe. GIRI started as a solo project, but after a few very successful performances, they got the reputation of being a great live band. The singer Andreas Jayasekera Lindbergh, introduced some songs for the drummer, Hasse Sj√∂lander and during the recordings of the debut album the guitarist Jonas Karlberg joined. When bass player Albin Johansson joined, the band was finally complete, and GIRI was born.

Kat Webb is an Austin, TX-born neo-soul and jazz singer. In May 2011, she released her debut album, "An Old Soul", a compilation of jazz standards and soul classics re-imagined for the modern listener, entirely in ANALOG. It was recorded in Brooklyn, NY where she has resided for the past several years. She has a degree in English from Yale University, where she also studied heavily in vocal music, earning top marks from Yale's School of Music and touring the world with Yale's youngest a cappella group, Shades (in which she became their Musical Director her junior year). She went on to become a member of the Singing Group Council her senior year, and a featured singer with the Yale Jazz Ensemble. Literally the same day of her graduation, she moved to NYC and began pursuing a career in entertainment. Her album release in 2011 also marked her debut as a solo performing artist, and since then she's been performing in venues all over the East coast, including the legendary Lenox Lounge, Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Bowery Poetry Club, Drom, and many more. The release of her upcoming album, "A Better Picture", will mark the first time Kat presents to her audience her own original music. It's sure to be memorable with co-producers Christian Ver Halen and Jesse Fischer on board, and Grammy-winners involved in its production. Big things are coming for this Southern Songbird!
