EllaHarp
EllaHarp
An instrument like the harp doesn’t exactly inspire imagery of driving bass lines and mainstream appeal, and that’s what Bay Area based harpist, singer/songwriter Ella Dawn Jenkins, aka EllaHarp is working to change.

Armed with a fresh take on contemporary blues, the musical lineage of composer/arranger Gordon Jenkins, and a unique instrument she designed for the purpose, EllaHarp is pushing the harp out of type-cast expectations and doing things differently.

Since the independent release of her first album in February (‘Who Asked You Back, released 2.3.18), EllaHarp has toured 6 states with more than 80 live performances, from Irish pubs in Honolulu to 'The Bitter End' in New York City to opening for Grammy winning singer Mya at the Music Box in San Diego.
Christina LaRocca
Christina LaRocca
Soulful singer songwriter and international touring LA based artist, Christina LaRocca, brings a blend of Americana, alternative and soul to the table. A member of the Recording Academy, Christina switched coasts in 2014, and the now Los Angeles-based musician, found inspiration in her trek out west and influences from artists like Sheryl Crow, Lana Del Rey, Lauryn Hill and Adele. Raised in an Italian family in New York City, and a descendent of professional musicians, Christina grew up surrounded by musicianship and quickly developed her voice to be one that commanded a room, with a side of take no BS swagger. LaRocca, a mover and shaker in the music business at-large as well as being an artist, founded L Rock Entertainment and has supported the careers of hundreds of artists. She’s been seen on stage with artists such as Billie Joe (Green Day), VV Brown, Rachel Platten and many others. She has also been seen performing with the famous Café Wha Band in NYC, folk artist Ryan Martin and hip hop artists, The Higher Concept which lead her to meeting Josh Glazer of J Glaze Productions who recorded her 3rd studio record in 2011, “I Stand Tall With My Eyes Wide Open.” Jump ahead to 2017, 3 years after Christina settles in Los Angeles, she records “Child of the Sun” and “I Am Only Human” with LA producer Robb Torres, adding a twist of Americana and alternative to her soulful sound. The 2-song EP was released on Nov 3 worldwide on all digital streaming platforms. You can watch her new music video for “Child of the Sun” here!
