Josh Halverson
Josh Halverson
Award-winning songwriter and finalist on NBC's The Voice Season 11, Josh Halverson has one goal when it comes to his music: "be the positive counterbalance to all the negativity of the World." His earnest recordings blend his current acoustic roots sound with shades of the R&B and Rock n' Roll he grew up loving. Halverson, the son of a cattle rancher and native Dakota Indian, writes with a maturity beyond his years as he meditates on life, love, and loss. It’s the kind of voice that cuts through the usual noise that surrounds us... Come celebrate the release of his new album "Year of the Thunderbird"!

Karen Dezelle
Karen Dezelle
Karen Dezelle is a singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California who sings indie folk, with pop, alt-country, and americana influences. She writes and composes her own music and has played at famed venues and festivals across the United States and UK, including SXSW, the House of Blues, The Hotel Cafe, Ain’t Nothin But Blues Bar, and The Bitter End. After the success of her 2013 and 2014 albums, “Lost and Found” and "Bloom, Unfold, Wither," Dezelle set to work crafting beautifully emotional songs that make up her latest EP, "Room For Two," which was released August 2016.

At the center of Karen’s music is honest story-telling, with lyrics that are both relatable and deeply personal. She combines authentic stories with emotive, soothing vocals, building instrumental flourishes, and cross-genre musical experimentation. With music that mixes positivity with uncertainty, she reflects on the human disposition in a way that elevates her songwriting and engages the listener. "Music helps people feel more connected. Everyone has their way of showing love to the world...music has just always been my language," says Dezelle.

Karen’s music has been critically acclaimed and placed in numerous films and trailers. Most recently, she has been tasked with writing for specific film scripts and television. She has continued to collaborate with many other up-and-coming and established singer-songwriters as both a performer and a writer, as well as pursue her individual creative pursuits. Her recent songs, “I’d Go Anywhere,” “Susie’s Song,” and “Bloom, Unfold, Wither” can all be heard in motion pictures. www.karendezelle.com
