Jen Aldana's eclectic sound ranges from soulful wails to soft, sweet melodies. Born and raised in Boston, Aldana found her passion for songwriting after the purchase of her first acoustic guitar and a couple of guitar lessons in the city as a young tween. Ever since, she's been playing and performing. Currently studying at Berklee College of Music, she's majoring in songwriting and later plans to move to Tennessee to pursue her career in music. 

Mark Deschner hails from the small town of Wimberley, Texas, a suburb to the “live music capital of the world,” Austin. From a young age, he took an interest in music, mostly inspired by the albums his father played in the car (such as Lyle Lovett and Nickel Creek) and by the thriving music scene around him. His passion for music brought him to Boston to study at Berklee and soon will take him wherever he can make his living from his passion. 

During his sophomore year in high school, Sean Trainor started playing in local restaurants, bars, and festivals, and quickly developed a following in the North Carolina area. Currently studying songwriting and contemporary writing and production at Berklee, he's an active performer as well as a writer, arranger, and session musician. Trainor sings and plays a variety of instruments including piano, guitar, mandolin, accordion, and lapsteel guitar, among others. 

Nahid Siddiqui was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She started singing when she was 12 and has never looked back. She took classical piano lessons as a child and picked up playing the guitar while in high school. Currently, Siddiqui is finishing up her degree in film scoring at Berklee. Since her time in Boston, she has been performing, recording, and writing songs, working towards releasing her debut album in the spring of 2015.

Sinkane
Martine Carlson

Sinkane (Ahmed Gallab) and his family left Sudan when he was a boy, emigrating to the United States. While in high school in Kent, Ohio, he found a musical community in the town’s thriving post-hardcore scene. He became the touring drummer for Caribou in 2008, then toured with Of Montreal before moving to New York City. Soon, he joined Yeasayer and toured the world with them. A formidable player on guitar, bass, keys, and drums, Sinkane is a one-man band, playing at least four instruments on every track on Mars. The influence of ‘70s soul icons like Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye, and Stevie Wonder can be heard on this album, in addition to the influence of Sudan.

Music For Touching is the debut album from Cookies, an exquisitely crafted pop project by Ben Sterling. The album was an obsessive labor of love for the native New Yorker, five years and countless detours in the making. On Music For Touching, influences from disco, hip-hop, classic pop, and modern electronic timbres mingle into highly personal dance music.
