In 1999, Emily released her independent CD, "Radiate," After spending a year writing and recording, Emily released her second, self-titled album.

RobinElla
RobinElla makes beguiling music that has no name. The acclaimed singer-songwriter has had folks struggling with descriptions as long as she has been making music. She has slipped in and out of genres ranging from bluegrass to jazz, always dodging labels.

E Muzeki
Mark Varelas and Jenny O'Connor, both native Texans, first played music together in fall of 1999 as founders of the Greek band, E Serenes (The Sirens). A shared passion for exotic sounding music carried them beyond Greek music both in genre and instrumentation to their world music project, E Muzeki. Drawing from Gypsy, Greek, Spanish, and Celtic traditions while not being bound by them, the group has developed a unique and captivating style. Whether playing actual folk repertoire, or one of their original compositions, E Muzeki brings fresh emotion to ancient musical tradition, drawing listeners of all ages and from every walk of life.

Gram Rabbit
Gram Rabbit

Drinkme
Drinkme formed when guitarist / singer Julian (Whitey, Siobhan Fahey) and bassist / vocalist Ru (Echobelly) began writing tracks together, melding their individual tastes into a tapestry of polished melodies and biting lyrics. The band’s current set sweeps together a wide range of disco-punk influences such as Gang of Four and PiL, Britpop melodies and lyrics reminiscent of the Clash and Blur, while loops reminiscent of 80’s electronica add a Numanesque edge to their sound.

Dresden Dolls
The Dresden Dolls are Amanda Palmer on piano and Brian Viglione on drums. The music they make has roots in pre-WWII Dresden cabarets, but updated with a punk vibe and hip hop explicitivity.

The Ditty Bops
Amanda and Abby weave music and lyrics together to achieve that rarest of effects, taking their listeners to another place, a place that seems more consequential and interesting than where they started.

Regina Spektor
Regina Spektor plays her piano and belts out music that defies genre. Classical punk rock, with some jazz and blues mixed in might get you close to an adequate description of her art. Listen once and you'll understand and want more.

Turin Brakes
Turin Brakes is a modern folk pop duo that hails from Britain. Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian were friends in elementary school and decided to try out for the cathedral choir because it would perform in front of the Queen of England, which it eventually did. The two childhood friends formed a band together and would record their freewheeling jam sessions.

Raul Midón
While you can hear traces of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano and, Richie Havens in his music, Midón is an extraordinary original whose passion is expressed in his indelible songs. "I like to celebrate the possible, the highest, the best of possibilities for human beings," says Midón, who has been blind since birth and is the son of an African American mother and an Argentinean father. "It's easy to be pessimistic given the state of the world. But I'm inspired by people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Gandhi who had the ability to transform. Collectively we create an enormously powerful force that can change the world and overcome any obstacle."

Johnny Smith
Songwriter Johnny Smith performs regularly in the Bay Area as a solo acoustic guitarist and singer. You’ll definitely be entertained by one of the most outstanding voices in the Bay Area and beyond as he delivers a host of original songs and classic cover songs.His band, The Johnny Smith Group (aka ALIAS SMITH), is a fabulous four-piece band, which is sure to get you on your feet and dancing! So whether you’re looking to hear a great solo acoustic performance, a dynamic duo or a lively rockin’ rhythm & blues band … come and join us for some great fun!

Mary Gauthier
There is a story here, strange and scary, as compelling as the music. Gauthier's path has wound through devastation and despair. She has beaten back demons, lived off the streets, sunk to the bottom of life, turned 18 behind bars, emerged from darkness, and to completely confuse things won notice as a respected restaurateur — all before writing her first song.

Stewart Francke
Stewart Francke, Detroit singer, songwriter, has long been a timekeeper of the city’s soul and R&B heritage and has made a selection of self-released suave but under appreciated albums.

Down The Line
Down The Line features bluegrass instruments, original pop songs, rock 'n' roll attitude, and the folk-and soul-style harmonies of three unforgettable vocalists.

Industrial Salt
Industrial Salt consists of Hayley Bonnick on guitar and backing vocals. Alex Stamp on vocals and electric piano. Two girls with plenty of attitude, and a passion for music who met during 2004 and hit it off immediately. The band name was a direct lift from a Chemistry textbook that Hayley was referring to while doing her homework one night. “ I just thought it was a great name for a band.” She joked. I never thought it would stick!”

The Duhks
The five practiced, risk-taking twenty-something musicians and singers who make up this singular new band out of Winnipeg, Manitoba will, if asked, good-naturedly toss out some of the attempts at labels astonished listeners have turned to…In the two years that they've been a unit, many have tried to describe The Duhks' music-- "contemporary acoustic," "progressive soul-grass," and “kick-ass rock/folk fusion” being just a few of the attempts to classify the group.

Dayna Kurtz
Dayna Kurtz defies genre. She is a bit blues, jazz, R&B, folk, rock and pop. That's one reason why we like her. The other is her voice, low and full of soul and a startling honesty. Her album "Beautiful Yesterday" is a tremendous, eclectic mix of songs that will make you an instant fan.

Okkervil River
Listening to Okkervil River is a lot like taking a favorite rock band, adding in a favorite alt country band, mixing in some bluegrass instrumentation and then topping it off with the lyricality of a cherished singer songwriter. And it all works very well, very well indeed.

Bright Eyes
The band, Bright Eyes is the creation of Conor Oberst, singer-songwriter from Nebraska. Oberst's lyrics will haunt you and the passion of his delivery will win you over.

Victor Wooten
Victor Wooten
redefines the word musician. Regaled as the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius, Victor is known for his solo recordings and tours, and as a member of the Grammy-winning supergroup, Béla Fleck & The Flecktones. He is an innovator on the bass guitar, as well as a talented composer, arranger, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist.
