Andrew St. James

Brianna Conroya 19-year-old from Los Angeles, presents an intricate labyrinth of sounds and textures beneath flawless intimate vocal performances. Coming from acoustic beginnings as a singer-songwriter, she has now evolved into a powerful alternative presence, supported by a five-piece rock-rooted band.

Iconic artists such as the Beatles, Beck, Radiohead, and Crosby Stills and Nash, shaped Conroy's her musical inclinations. Her eclectic sound consists of vulnerable lyrics, intimate melodies, and ambient harmonies. She pulls inspiration from contemporary artists such as Young the Giant, Grizzly Bear, Daughter, the xx, and the Black Keys to add an additional twist to her acoustic songwriting foundation.

Brianna has teamed up with new Boston-based label Fitz Ross Productions to produce a riveting four-track EP that promises to throw surprises at its listeners left and right. 

The Boston-based band Night Lights met in 2012 and has since discovered a balance between profound lyrics, hooky melodies, danceable music, and intriguing harmonic progressions. Their songs touch on the subject of existentialism and the confrontation of the self, hoping to discover a truth grounded in music, community, and conversation. Drew's warped soundscapes, Yusuke's intricate riffs, Jeff's melodic bass lines, Dag's colorful rhythmic creations, and Mau's captivating melodies and otherworldly voice effects all come together to take you on an unparalleled audio adventure.

Andrew St. James is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter from the fog-enshrouded misty hills of San Francisco’s Twin Peaks. Incorporating a beyond-his-years lyrical vision with a unique gift for melody-making, St. James’s music lands firmly in the alternative folk world, but displays a real knack for timeless songwriting skills. “I am inspired by the odd characters that I call my acquaintances,” St. James says of the colorful cast that inhabits his music. Hip street folk, Irish immigrants and Mission hipsters star in songs that exist as soundtracks to hard-lived lives. Flawless vocals and better-on-repeat lyrics make "Doldrums" a stand-out record, and as a performer St. James weaves humorous stories and interludes into surprisingly sophisticated songcraft.
