At only 21 years old, Oklahoma native Parker Millsap is quickly making a name for himself with his captivating live performances, soulful sound, and character-driven narratives. Since the release of his self-titled debut album earlier this year, he has garnered a nomination for the Americana Music Association's 2014 Emerging Artist of the Year and received praise from the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, American Songwriter, the Boston Globe, and NPR, to name a few.

Growing up in the tiny town of Purcell, Millsap attended a Pentecostal church with his family three times a week for most of his youth, an experience that informs his songwriting today. By blending that fire-and-brimstone preaching with rock, country, blues, and Waitsian imagery, he has created his own unique sound. An experienced performer, Millsap has played at the Tin Pan South Songwriters Festival and opened for Old Crow Medicine Show, Patty Griffin, Shovels & Rope, Lake Street Dive, and fellow Oklahoma blues rocker John Fullbright.

Expect an experience that’s stand-up-and-sway good, with a seven-person band backing two lyrically smooth rappers and one singer with vocals that soar (on Viva La Hop's New Breed) and then soothe (on New Vibe). Made up entirely of Berklee alums, the band unleashes a variety of color that combines hip-hop with other genres of groove-base riffs and melodies. 

The Sun and the Moon is an eclectic indie rock band from Boulder,  Colo. From the indie smash The Rock And The River,   to minimalist-acoustic Apartment #41 to psychedelic concept Rock Shadows,  The Sun and the Moon is always fresh and surprising, known for captivating, high-energy performances.

Quarrels is a four piece indie-experimental band based in Boston. Its musical influences range from Radiohead to Miles Davis and even Brand New. With such a wide range of tastes as inspiration, it’s hard to gauge what the debut EP Witches Take Them In will offer listeners.
