Based out of Providence, Rhode Island, Call Security is the 2017 winner of 95.5 WBRU's Rock Hunt contest. They blend a variety of influences into a unique, dynamic sound that treads the line between modern and vintage. Known for delivering live shows that burst with energy, Call Security is quickly gaining recognition for their unique talents as songwriters, musicians, and performers. The band has shared the stage with acts such as Passion Pit and We the Kings. They have played at venues such as Smith Opera House, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and Webster Hall. They have also performed at festivals such as Collegefest at Fenway Park, RedGorilla Fest in Austin, Texas, MusikFest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Canadian Music Week in Toronto. Additionally, the band will be performing at the summer 2017 Alive@Five Festival in Stamford, Connecticut. Following the success of their debut EP, To Whom It May Concern, in 2014, which garnered more than a half a million plays on Spotify, Call Security released their sophomore EP, Laberge, last year, which works to further define their unique style. 

Migrant Motel is a Boston-based rock 'n' roll power trio that formed at Berklee. Comprising leading man David Stewart (bass and vocals) from Peru, Edward Graves (guitar) from England, and Chava Ilizaliturri (drums) from Mexico, the group brings a diverse range of culture and influences to the table.
