Dave Madden

In the midst of a sea of throaty voices, Austin, Texas singer/songwriter Dave Madden is a pleasant surprise. His songs are catchy, yet fraught with meaning. His delivery is both impeccable and sexy. Trained at Berklee, he moves deftly between the piano and various guitars. He will be sharing music in an "in-the-round" style with Phoebe Hunt from the Belleville Outfit. With special guest Lukas Nelson (son of Willie).

Lijie performs as part of he Heck Room Music Series, is a monthly concert series featuring Berklee's top acoustic performers.

Her songs have been recognized at the 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2009 UK Songwriting Contests, and her music has been placed in various independent film projects and documentaries.

Lijie's first instrument was the piano, she later picked up the guitar during her time at college when a roommate brought a guitar into their room. Though rational voices told her to pursue a more stable career, Lijie followed her heart and chose music. She says, "Music is the greatest thing. People need music. It's something no one can take away from you. Everyone's experience and connection with a song is different, and my dream is to connect with people worldwide through music."

Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys

Jaggery is an experimental art-rock collective who work the dark edge of a genre-defying musical style.  Fronted by Boston-based singer/songstress Mali Sastri, whose training in the expressive arts discipline Voice Movement Therapy is evident in her global-sized voice. The band suggests a classical, organic, avant-jazz-oriented Cocteau Twins or a "white witch" counter to the haunting Diamanda Galas. Mali's voice can be a leaf floating in the breezeand then become an Earth-shaking, Everest-sized volcano.

Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys are a musical alchemy, fingering the rabbit hole of performance art. With their toys and voices they create a death-folk, steamcrunk, organic-industrial experience. At the moment Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys are touring throughout the world. Their music has appeared on international and American radio as well as in independent films and on television.
