The seed for Drunken Logic took root when frontman Jake Cassman walked away from an Ivy League education to forge a brand of music that blends a myriad of influences with potent, topical lyrics. The first incarnation of the band formed at Berklee in 2012, and ever since, Drunken Logic has been brewing an eclectic powder keg of alternative rock and indie folk in their Boston apartments. Since the 2013 release of their debut album, Something New to Burn, this quintet has rocked AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants) and have been regularly featured performers at Faneuil Hall, which hosts 18 million visitors annually. RAW:Boston named Drunken Logic their 2013 musicians of the year, and 2014 saw them tour the Northeast and showcase at CMJ Music Marathon. The band has compiled 11 new songs for their upcoming sophomore effort, titled Long Day’s Journey to the Middle. Drunken Logic are constantly reinventing their brand of art while battling elements of contemporary America and having far too much fun while doing it.

Yankee & the Foreigners is an indie folk/rock band out of Boston.

The Tori Leche Trio is a Boston-based band that features Tori Leche on vocals and guitar, Adam Discipio on bass, and Tim Washington on drums. Raised in Virginia, Leche gained much of her experience and influence gigging in the local Fisherville area. During her third semester at Berklee, she joined with fellow students Discipio and Washington to form the three-piece band. Since forming, the Tori Leche Trio has performed in the greater Boston area at various venues. Their cover of the Lucius song “Nothing Ordinary” was ranked and featured on the Music Meets Video website in November of 2014. The singer-songwriter three piece will be embarking on an East Coast tour in the summer of 2015 with dates in Virginia, New York, Maryland, and Georgia. 

Noah Chenfeld, 18, is a singer-songwriter from New York City. With his band and on his own, Chenfeld has played at a number of venues around New York including Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, Stephen Talkhouse, and the Bitter End. He’s opened for such artists as Dar Williams, Seth Glier, and Suzanne Vega.

"I get a lot of juice from the musicians in the room," says Gretchen Peters. In the case of her new album, Blackbirds, this is an understatement. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, the album features a who's who of modern American roots music: Jerry Douglas, Jason Isbell, Jimmy LaFave, Kim Richey, Suzy Bogguss, and more.
 
But it's not the guests who make Blackbirds the most poignant and moving album of Peters's storied career; it’s the impeccable craftsmanship and her ability to capture the kind of complex, conflicting, and overwhelming emotional moments we might otherwise try to hide and instead shine a light of truth and understanding onto them. Blackbirds is, in many ways, an album that is unafraid to face down mortality. But rather than dwell on the pain of loss, the music finds a new appreciation for the life we're given.
