Jaymay is an American folk singer-songwriter from New York. After graduating from New College of Florida in 2003, she was unable to find a job in book publishing and moved back to New York to play professionally. She has been described by the BBC as being the "darling of the New York ‘anti-folk scene," and by the New York Times as a "big name...for the indie universe." Her song “Sea Green, See Blue” was featured in the Season 2 finale of CBS’s How I Met Your Mother in 2007. In 2008, she appeared on several shows including, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. She has been featured at the Hotel Café Tour, Bowery Ballroom, and shared slots with Goldfrapp and Fink’s U.S. tour. With endearing lyrics and a folky guitar, Jaymay is promoting her latest EP, 10Under2, which was released in early 2012.
Vandaveer is a song singing, record making, globetrotting project penned and put forth by folk-pop tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger. Born in cloudy Ohio, raised in Kentucky, and currently camped out in the nation's capital, Vandaveer. The band offers up melodic Americana that is haunting and easy, forlorn and welcoming. Vandaveer shapeshifts from stage to studio and back with a host of revolving characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, offering up the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden.The Red Room @ Cafe 939 regrets to inform you that this show has been cancelled due to a serious illness of the artist, Jaymay.
