Sam DeRosa is a multi-platinum songwriter and recording artist from New York, now in Los Angeles. Born into a musical family, DeRosa is a self-taught musician who continued her training at Berklee. DeRosa's songs have surpassed 1 billion streams across all platforms, have earned her RIAA multi-platinum and gold plaques, and most recently, her work was nominated for the 2023 Grammys. She’s penned hits for lovelytheband with “broken,” Dixie Damelio with “Be Happy," Lukas Graham, Jonas Blue, and many more. Her artistic career began with her debut single “Pill for This” (as seen on NBC’s Songland.) The song charted at #3 on the iTunes pop charts, #6 globally, and landed her a spot on the Kelly Clarkson Show in November of 2019. She has now released two bodies of work: The Medicine EP in 2020 and her sophomore EP, The Good Parts. Rolling Stone magazine recently covered DeRosa's latest single and video, “After the Tears Dry,” which was released off of her last EP. People and Billboard magazines have named DeRosa as an artist to watch, and Earmilk calls her “everybody’s best friend.” If you make it to a Sam DeRosa show, you’ll leave with a feeling unlike any other and you will see what they mean. DeRosa ended 2022 with a sold-out co-headlining bill at Chelsea Music Hall (NYC) and plans to tour and release more music in 2023.


Jillian Dawn is a 24-year-old indie pop singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Raised in Mansfield, MA, she now lives in Nashville where her style has evolved to dance-driven indie-pop with flares of country and rock. Dawn joined the acclaimed roster of songwriters in the all-female writer's round Song Suffragettes in January 2022. Currently working alongside Nashville’s brightest talent, Dawn recently kickstarted a new chapter with the pop anthem of the late summer, “Watered Down,” and her debut as an original cast member of "She Believed She Could," a Nashville-based musical revue. Since her graduation from the University of Miami Frost School of Music, Dawn has toured with headlining acts and hit festival stages around the country, all while preparing for her next musical project, due this year.
