Mike ‘Maz’ Maher has made a name for himself as a founding member of the multi-Grammy-Award winning group Snarky Puppy. Although he functions as a trumpeter with the pups, it would be remiss to categorize Maz as a closet singer-songwriter. His songs incorporate folk, rock, soul, and jazz traditions with a seamless mastery that is only overshadowed by his ability to captivate audiences with the soulful intimacy of his voice.
In a short period of time, Canadian Michelle Willis has made a name for herself as a singer-songwriter and keyboardist performing with some of the world's most well-loved artists (Iggy & the Stooges, Snarky Puppy, Zac Brown Band, and David Crosby, to name a few). Her debut album See Us Through was released on Snarky Puppy's GroundUP Music label, and features richly stacked vocals atop Americana, folk, and jazz harmony. Willis can now most often be heard performing in Brooklyn, New York.
