Hayley Reardon

Jeff LeBlanc graduated from Sacred Heart University, earned a history degree, and imagined that he most likely would become a middle-school teacher. However, LeBlanc’s discovery of songwriting led him down a different path. Since releasing his first EP, Signals, in 2009, he has epitomized success as an independent artist, netting three top-20 albums on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart: 2011’s Worth Holding On To, 2013’s My Own Way There, and 2015’s Vision. This lead to LeBlanc scoring dozens of television placements, achieving both satellite and commercial radio play, selling out headline shows, and touring the country with a wide range of acts, including Gavin DeGraw, Tori Kelly, Ingrid Michaelson, Parachute, and many more.

After quickly establishing a name for herself in the storied Cambridge, Massachusetts folk scene at a very young age, Hayley Reardon’s sterling debut album, 2012’s Where the Artists Go, achieved widespread acclaim in New England. She has received feature support from the Boston Herald, NPR affiliate WBUR, and Boston Globe Magazine, who named her a Bostonian of the Year, in celebration of not only her music, but her work to use it as a vessel for empowerment. Reardon’s 2014 release Wayfindings expanded her International footprint via syndicated public radio show “Art of the Song” and praise from Paste, Performer Magazine, Americana UK, and American Songwriter who referred to its first single, “Numb & Blue” as a “melancholy little masterpiece.”

Clay Cook has made his living through many avenues in the music industry. An accomplished songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he has recorded and toured with John Mayer, Sugarland, the Marshall Tucker Band, and Shawn Mullins. In 2009 Cook became a member of the three-time Grammy-winning Zac Brown Band, but he still finds time to tour his brand of acoustic singer-songwriter music.

At just 19 years old, Ava Suppelsa has already had a career that rivals musicians twice her age. Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, she is a self-taught guitarist and accomplished songwriter. She’s received national recognition for her songwriting from the Grammy Foundation, International Songwriting Competition, American Songwriting Awards, Great American Songwriting Contest, and more. In 2015, she was named a Young Arts Winner, a competition supported by the National Endowment of the Arts. Out of 11,000 applicants, she was one of six selected singer-songwriters. There she worked with and was mentored by legendary artists like Chris Young, Josh Groban, and Desmond Child.
