Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking the cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. With no limits when it comes to performing live, they are equally impressive playing Bach and Vivaldi as when they are rocking out to AC/DC.

Featured at Lollapalooza, and other major festivals around the world, Red Oblivion is a three-piece rock band from Boston. It consists of Zach Adams (vocals/bass), Emma Torres (guitar), and Carson Groenewold (drums). The three members met at Berklee and now reside in New York. It is trying to put a traditional spin on modern music by pulling from such diverse influences such as the Pixies, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Killers. The band's new five-song EP, My Friend Fear, features organic instrumentation, catchy guitar riffs, and aggressive lyrics. Red Oblivion released My Friend Fear after touring Mexico, Brazil, Chile, and Argentina.

Three musicians from across the United States congregate in Boston to form a fusion of punk rock, gypsy jazz, and funk stylings that could only be summed up by one phrase: Skinny Pigeons. This power trio combines the songwriting of traveller and guitarist Joey Luna with the bass lines of Ben Henry and drum parts written by Jeff Crenshaw. Born in the depths of the Berklee dormitories, the band incubated for several months before emerging with an assortment of songs and a hunger to spread their strain of avian flu far and wide. The Skinny Pigeons’ debut EP, Flu, was released in January.

Peruvian born vocalist, bass, guitarist, and songwriter David Stewart Jr. is the first-ever recipient of the Berklee Lollapalooza Endowed Scholarship, a four-year, full-tuition award. Upon arriving at Berklee, he teamed up with British guitar virtuoso Ed Graves and Mexican rock drum phenomenon Chava to form a self-titled rock trio. Otherwise known as DSJR, the trio has performed at SXSW, been featured on HBO, and worked alongside companies like Red Bull. It continues to write, record, and perform all along the East Coast.

Ryan Bingham

Ryan Bingham is an Oscar-winning singer-songwriter who was born in New Mexico but raised all across the Southwestern United States. Bingham set out on his own at a young age, shuffling from town to town and performing gigs at local no-frills bars. It’s this spirit of having done plenty of living early on that has informed the singer-songwriter’s jagged and weather-beaten vocals.

Bingham’s critically acclaimed debut album, Mescalito, won kudos from media outlets as varied as Rolling Stone, Esquire, and The Washington Post. His sophomore effort, Roadhouse Sun, solidified his reputation as a serious artist.

In 2010, Bingham’s song “The Weary Kind, which appeared on the soundtrack to the film Crazy Heart, earned him a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and the Americana Artist of the Year Award. The song also led to his collaboration with T Bone Burnett, who produced his third studio album, Junky Star, which drew critical acclaim. Bingham’s songwriting abilities shine on songs that seem poised to continue acing the test of time.
