The seed for Drunken Logic was planted when frontman Jake Cassman walked away from an Ivy League education, determined to forge what music blog Sound of Boston would go on to describe as a "surprisingly cohesive blend of pop punk and emotionally-charged folk rock.” The band first formed at Berklee College of Music in 2012, and ever since, Drunken Logic has been brewing a powder keg of eclectic influences and potent, topical lyrics in their shoddy Boston apartments.

Accolades and accomplishments quickly followed the 2013 release of their debut album, Something New to Burn—they rocked AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants), were named RAW:Boston’s 2013 Musicians of the Year, opened for Ed Kowalcyzk (formerly of Live), and were selected for a slot in Berklee’s 2014 CMJ Showcase. The band recently released their second album, Long Day’s Journey to the Middle, which independent music source Speak Into My Good Eye described as “a complete and sprawling thought...[that]...is not only worthy of repeat listens, it requires them.” Their music video for the song, "This Side or the Other" was selected to the Southeast New England Film Festival.

Drunken Logic enjoy a unique and formidable live chemistry honed during busking performances at Boston's Faneuil Hall, which hosts 18 million visitors annually. Cassman, talented multi-instrumentalist Ryan Jordan '13, and virtuosic guitarist Austin Wells have built upon and added to an already ambitious artistic vision. Drunken Logic are constantly reinventing their brand of music while battling the elements of contemporary America — and loving every minute of it.

Katrina Woolverton

Four years ago, Jon McLaughlin’s Island Records debut propelled his song “Beautiful Disaster” up the charts, with “Beating My Heart” following quickly after. Hollywood immediately took notice of the young songwriter and used several pieces of his music for films and commercials. McLaughlin was offered a role in the hit film Enchanted, performing a song that was later nominated for an Academy Award. In 2008, he found himself onstage at the Oscars reprising the tune in front of 32 million U.S. viewers. In between the hit songs and television appearances, true to his hardworking Midwestern roots, McLaughlin spent his nights opening for the likes of Sara Bareilles and Kelly Clarkson, and recording with Jason Mraz and writing for other artists.

Katrina Woolverton is an American singer-songwriter and recording artist from Los Angeles, California. She rose to fame in 2011 with the release of her debut album In the Blink of an Eye that featured three charting singles, "Shame on Me," "OPM," and "So Eden." Woolverton was named iHeartRadio's "Artist to Watch" in 2011 and was the opening act in the U.S. for Meatloaf during the Mad, Mad World Tour 2012. In 2012 and 2013, she released two stand-alone singles, "Watch Me Walk Away" (#43 Billboard Hot AC) the only non-Woolverton composition she has recorded (originally penned by Katy Perry along with cowriters Charlie Midnight and Holly Knight), and "Ready to Love," collaborating with electropop producer/remixer Frankmusik.
