• Casey Cyr (Rock-alternative)
• Rhythyms of Aqua (Acoustic-folk and soul)
• Holly Figueroa (Alterna-rock)
• Suhir Blackeagle (Soul-jazz and pop songstress)

"Holly Figueroa started wowing national audiences in 1999 after 2 years of local Seattle shows. She has toured extensively throughout the US, greeting fans everywhere with her refreshing style of hybrid folk and blues."
Joy Styles blues style and silky voice brings joy and sincerity. She brings us back in time to the days of the dark smoky clubs where people would listen to the sounds of R&B and for that moment forget about the troubles of everyday life and groove.
Casey Cyr
dedicates her music and message to a wonderful blend of topics, captivating audiences and making them open up and listen. Her style of alternative-rock and pop is refreshing to say the least.
Rhythyms of Aqua opens you up with acoustic sounds and spheres of folk, rock, classical and soul. Three women in this trio of violin, percussions and guitar are a beautiful blend for your ears.
Suhir Blackeagle blessings from this vocalist as she captivates you with sounds of soul, jazz and rock. Her stage style is contagious. She brings you into her home when she sings and you sit down. Not to be missed.
Naviv deemed the high-priestess of funky folk by members of New York City's Black Rock Coalition, Naviv's dred-locked rocker flare fits with her blend of pop-soul & rock. Her songs are vivid, fun & intense scenes from her life that leave you inspired.
