Kawehi
Kawehi is a new breed of musician, a one-woman-band from Lawrence, Kansas who uses technology to carry the weight of a full band on her own. She was seen and heard in the Super Bowl 50 commercial for Intel, has landed in publications such as People Magazine, Spin, Esquire, and on the front page of Reddit. Elle magazine has dubbed Kawehi “The Genius One-Woman Band” and HuffPo has praised Kawehi as “Killing the DIY scene.” With over 11 million views on her YouTube channel, Kawehi has been performing to sold out shows across the nation and has already been on three headlining tours. With eight Kickstarter projects under her belt, Kawehi shows no signs of slowing down. Her newest project, EVE – a Sci-Fi Short Film/Visual Album – was funded via Kickstarter in less than a day and is set to release in the Spring of 2017.
Zoya
Zoya
India born, California raised folk fusion songstress, Zoya, has been praised by the likes of The Huffington Post, Wondering Sound, Rolling Stone India, ELLE and more for her innovative sound intertwining folk singer-songwriter music and the inescapable allure of her entrancing cross cultured vocal style, coupled with intense, stirring harmonies, and eclectic instrumentation.

She received high acclaim on her first record, Letters To Toska (November 2015) for it's experimental take on the DIY singer-songwriter genre. Her newest album The Girl Who Used To Live In My Room (July 2015) released in support of her successfully funded Kickstarter and her latest release, natural disaster. (October 2016) has stirred up a storm as the indie folk girl we used to know is caught pushing her boundaries in attempts to capture a more bold, semi-electronic soundscape.

In the fall of 2014, Zoya released her first ever Visual EP titled, Lasya (November 2014). Partnering with a ballet dancer, modern contact dancer, and Indian dancer she used their choreography as a medium to gather their individual responses to the messages of longing and pining relayed in the lyrics of each song. The result was extraordinary footage that visually expressed this through dance and was released via YouTube.

In October 2015 she released an electronic remix compilation album entitled, Zoya: Plugged In. The album is a collaboration project featuring nine different producers who have remixed nine of Zoya's most popular singles in hopes to raise awareness through electronic music for the need for electricity to provide for a better educational environment in rural India.

As a Music Business graduate from world renowned Berklee College of Music, Zoya continues to act a a pioneer in the global music industry while following her true passion as a touring singer-songwriter. She has toured and opened for the likes of Kawehi, Storyman, Salman Rushdie, Ryan Scott, Raghu Dixit, Lucy Rose, Natty, Susheela Raman and more.
