Judith Owen

Welsh singer-songwriter Judith Owen’s new album, Ebb & Flow, evokes the spirit of the halcyon days of the great 1970s troubadours. Her core band of drummer Russ Kunkel, bassist Lee Sklar, and guitarist Waddy Wachtel played on many of the landmark albums from the era, including Carole King’s Tapestry, James Taylor’s Sweet Baby James, Joni Mitchell’s Blue, and Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty, among countless others. They were recently featured in an article in Rolling Stone, celebrating their unsung contribution to music history.

The songs on Ebb & Flow touch on the deepest emotions of Owen’s own storied life with an unswerving honesty. But although her songs are highly personal, the emotions are universal. They can be dark, and yet they are also full of wonder, a celebration of the resourcefulness of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

V Blackburn

V Blackburn is a singer-songwriter and performer from Miami, Florida. Raised on Southern rock, jazz, and '90s pop, many genres have had a hand in shaping Blackburn’s blues/pop sound. Her smoky voice and quirky, provocative lyrics easily find their way around catchy melodies that will entice you to sing along. Blackburn has shared a stage with artists such as Hozier and Ages and Ages as well as performed on the main stage of the Newport Folk Festival with the Berklee Gospel and Roots Choir. This year promises a lot of studio time in preparation for the release of Blackburn’s first EP, Fifty Shades of Crazy.

Ashlyn Willson is a 22-year-old singer-songwriter from California who graduated from Berklee in May 2015. While there, she studied contemporary writing and production, learning how to compose for big bands and full orchestras as well as how to execute diverse production techniques.  Dollhouse, her debut EP that she both wrote and coproduced, was released in the fall of 2014, and she became known by her peers as an authentic songwriter with unique and powerful lyrics and a haunting, beautiful voice. Willson released her single "West Coast" in 2015, evoking the sweetness of her home state and her desire to return. First, however, her love for songwriting is taking her to Nashville, Tennessee where she will work as a songwriter in different genres including pop, rock, indie, electronic, and country.

Santiago Bosch was born and raised in Barquisimeto City, Venezuela. He started to show an interest in music during his childhood. Inspired and influenced by his father, he began studying piano at the age of nine. At that time, he had a little bit of formal education in classical music and classical piano training, but being highly influenced by and attracted to jazz and jazz/rock fusion music, after two years he left his formal studies and began experimenting by himself, trying always to use the ear to reach a sound that was more to his taste.

By the age of 15, Bosch started composing and playing in gigs professionally around his hometown and elsewhere in Venezuela. A big part of his musical training came from playing at those local gigs and concerts, and from making some recordings. In these settings, he has learned to play different styles such as Latin, pop, rock, and jazz.
