Elliot Taylor, who was named Sky TV's best unsigned live act, has a sound that is unrefined, soulful, and genuine. Taylor draws his lyrical inspiration from traveling the northern English countryside in his 1970 VW camper van, “Bessie.” He has also received BBC Radio 1 airplay and has been featured on indie film soundtracks.

BAERD is a progressive folk band from Boston, Massachusetts. Founded at Berklee College of Music, the group gathers together influences from jazz, Americana, classical, R&B, and world music. BAERD's lyricism and instrumental precision is inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, the Punch Brothers, and Radiohead. Their debut album, Progress, was released on September 1, 2016.

The Tree That Falls is a collaboration between cellist Cristobal Cruz-Garcia and guitarist John Shafer. TTTF incorporates the modern fingerstyle technique for both guitar and cello while taking influences from a wide variety of world styles and genres.
