The time has come for everyone to become reacquainted with Ryan Cabrera, whose new album The Moon Under Water is backed by his unshakable faith in what he has to offer. As Rolling Stone predicted, "The young Texan seems intent on transcending his Diesel-wearing, mall-kid status and being taken seriously as a musician." And that's just what he's done by putting his money where his music is—to finance his latest album, make his music as he wants to, and release it on his new independent Frolic Room Records label.

Even as a full-time student, Jesse Ruben toured relentlessly across the Northeast, building a strong and dedicated following. Since graduating in May of 2008, he has promoted Aiming for Honesty from coast to coast in both the United States and Canada. Combining influences from pop, rock, jazz, and folk, Jesse’s straight-from-the-heart songs and hilarious storytelling make for an unforgettable live experience for his listeners.

Also appearing: Zach Hexum.
