Jody Quine is a singer/writer, whose poetic and soulful music from the heart reaches into your darkness and brings you to the light.

“I want to get across is how important it is to follow your heart, for in doing so you inspire others to do the same.” says singer-songwriter Jody Quine.

After an acclaimed career as a collaborative artist with Balligomingo (Purify hit the Billboard Breakout Charts at #3), Sleepthief (Over 300,000 views on YouTube), and more, Jody stepped back into her solo music in 2013. Her new release, Stand Up, has Jody delving new depths as a songwriter. With a voice that beds down with the shivers under your skin, she reaches into your haunts and pull out the light. Her vocals expand from silken sweetness to smouldering power.

Katie Garibaldi is a San Francisco native who is making a splash with her roots-inspired songwriting, tender vocals and rich arrangements. Katie is fresh off winning some prestigious awards, including the LA Music Critics Award for Best Americana Artist. With accolades from the Indie Music Channel and write-ups in Guitar Player magazine, Katie, a Breedlove Guitars endorsed artist, is a gifted singer/songwriter/guitarist who has fostered a devoted fan base through her nationally-touring shows. Music Connection magazine says, “Garibaldi is blessed with a sweet and pure soprano, and we hear a sincerity in this artist that is real.”

No Depression magazine, the most influential alt-country/folk publication in the country, had high praise for Katie in a recent column: “Katie sings with vibrancy, hitting high notes even Joni Mitchell would appreciate. Her words, music and performance on ‘Delightful’ are just that – delightful. Backed by some purring violins and cello – with a straight ahead melodic drive Katie packs a wonderful folky extravagance… This woman doesn’t have to prove a thing to anyone – she is a powerhouse driven by an intoxicating vocal tone. It reaches heights that are so easy on the ear that it’s a treat, a pleasure to listen to. The voice – free of bombastic notes – is just pure musicality.”
Katie Garibaldi’s official music video for Rooted Clarity’s first single, “Delightful,” which premiered on The Alternate Root Magazine, has recently caught a fire in the film industry gaining multiple awards and nominations. “Delightful” was filmed in Nashville, TN, and has earned an upwards of 16 awards and counting, with continued buzz in this year’s film festivals. Last year, Katie released a new original holiday song, “Tomorrow is Christmas Morning” and has a full-length Christmas album in the works for a Fall 2017 release.

Mark Langton from Marin Independent Journal stated, “Penwell is regarded by many in the Bay Area to be one of the next big heavy weights.”

Take the voice of an angel and drop it one octave, that’s the sound of Amie Penwell. Her voice seduces the listener with a mixture of grit and polish that gives honesty a whole new meaning. This is not the voice next door, but rather the velvety crooning voice of a choirgirl who ran away with the preacher. Penwell strikes a rare balance between Adult Alternative Pop/Rock and full-throated Soul/R&B, and has the crossover appeal of artists like Annie Lennox, Peter Gabriel, Goyte, and Hozier, with strong sonic architecture of influences like Ray LaMontagne, U2, and Tom Waits. Like the best of those artists Penwell’s songs don’t pounce, they pull you in and stay with you long after you are done listening. Modern, electrifying, with noir tendencies Amie Penwell's deep, gravelly voice is hauntingly soothing.
