Josh Krajcik

When he was just 16 years old, Josh Krajcik schemed his way onto the stage of a bar near his hometown of Wooster, Ohio. Over the next 14 years, Krajcik fronted a host of musical projects and eventually founded the Josh Krajcik Band, a three-piece blues-rock outfit that toured with the likes of Corinne Bailey Rae and the Fray, and appeared in the Bonnaroo Music Festival’s 2006 lineup. But by 2011 Krajcik was fighting to sustain his music career, and ended up taking a job at a burrito joint to make ends meet. On a whim, Krajcik then auditioned for The X Factor USA—and soon found himself wowing audiences with his gravelly, rich voice and stirring delivery on the show’s premiere season. Now, Krajcik is set to release a debut solo EP and full-length album that pair his powerful vocals with intensely passionate, soul-infused songwriting. Although he’s been songwriting since age 13 and playing piano since he was eight, Krajcik cites his lack of formal musical training as essential to the vitality and authenticity of his sound. Krajcik asserts that his ultimate goal is to continue expanding his sound and delving more deeply into his songwriting.

New Hampshire native Ryan Schmidt first began digging into the fertile Boston music scene as a mere teenager. Schmidt took on office jobs within the music industry, making connections and hustling to establish the contacts that would eventually first introduce him to Q Division Studios. Seven years and three records later, Schmidt is supporting his latest release, the White Horse EP.
