Wakey!Wakey! is Michael Grubbs, an NYC songwriter who blends gorgeous songcraft with a potent sense of humor to create original, heartfelt songs that cause listeners to stop what they're doing and turn themselves over completely and totally to his storytelling. While W!W! may call Brooklyn home, the appeal reaches far beyond the borough.

Sarah RabDAU and the Self-Employed Assassins are a pitch-perfect team. Drummer Matt Graber backs up Rabdau's sometimes gorgeous, sometimes disturbing vocals and piano work with somehow-melodic rhythms. The duo has charmed audiences up and down the Northeast with charismatic, near-telepathic live shows. The duo recently released a video; has been featured on Skope.TV, Performing Songwriter, and the German magazine Beat; and made it to the 2009 WBCN Rumble semifinals.

Over the Rhine

After more than 15 years making music, it's obvious Ohio duo Over the Rhine is in it for the long haul, and for keeps.
