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.

Their eclectic folk rock sound is influenced by Los Campesinos!, the Lumineers, Sufjan Stevens, and the Middle East. DJ Carbo will open the show. Carbo, a.k.a. Mark Kates, was formerly a resident at one of L.A's. electronica clubs, Atmosphere at The Viper Room, and appeared on the legendary pirate radio station KBLT.

Lily & The Parlour Tricks

Lily and the Parlour Tricks dive deep into the well of musical Americana and resurface with a wild brew. Lily's songwriting influences include a wide range from the Andrews Sisters to T. Rex to 19th century murder songs, with roots planted firmly in the smoky back room of classic rock n' roll. Their soaring harmonies and raucous attitude keep audiences dancing and howling for more.

New York native Nat Osborn is a restless soul. He has studied tabla in India, played guitar on the streets of Budapest, written songs on Spanish balconies, packed venues across New York City, and been deported from the U.K., all before the age of 25. A natural and prolific songwriter, his fluency in crossing genres creates a unique and truly original sound. With nearly a decade of performance, songwriting, and band leading experience under his belt, Osborn set out in 2011 to assemble a seven-piece powerhouse ensemble, The Nat Osborn Band.  Having performed with the likes of Paul Simon, Wynton Marsalis, Ludacris, and Marc Broussard, Osborn’s seasoned bandmates have created a completely undeniable performance unit with a truly captivating sound.

Jay Stolar is a soul singer with an arsenal of heart-gripping songs. His live performances hark back to the early days of R&B, when it was an artist's job to connect to every person in the room. He is a deeply influential player in the New York City music scene.
