Hailed by the New York Times as a “best-kept secret” with an “impressively absorbing” debut album, Becca Stevens has established herself as a singer/composer of enormous talent. Her songs expand and blur the boundaries of folk, jazz, and pop while engaging the the listener through keen poetic observation, rich musical language, and beguiling singing. Her musical roots are in classical guitar, the folk music of her native North Carolina, and jazz, with additional influences ranging from West African rhythms to eccentric pop. 

Born and raised in Northern California, Margaret Glaspy has brought her indescribable voice to the East Coast and New York City couldn’t be happier. Having performed nationwide in venues including the Kennedy Center, Severance Hall, and the Ziegfeld Theatre, she’s also made herself a local must-see in the Big Apple. With a list of influences including Oumou Sangaré, Feist, Jeff Buckley, and Nina Simone. She has created a sound and writing style that is undeniable, honest, and a tribute to the beautiful music that she has discovered throughout her 23 years.

Katie Seiler, born in Durham New Hampshire, attended Western Michigan University and received her bachelor of music in jazz voice performance in 2009. Seiler recently graduated with a master of music in jazz vocal performance from New England Conservatory. She has performed regularly as a solo and ensemble vocalist in both classical and contemporary styles. Some of Seiler’s performance highlights include appearances at the Pollyfolia Vocal Festival with the WMU Gold Company Sextet in Normandy, France, the Oprah Show as a backup singer for Charice, and at venues such as Scullers Jazz Club, and the Press Room, among many more. Seiler is currently teaching jazz/contemporary voice at Brookline Music School and Page Music School and performing at various venues in the New England area.
