-Olivia Jean Markel (born February 23, 1990) is an American singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.
-Olivia Jean, Detroit born n’ bred, current resident of Nashville, TN, first staked her flag with the gothic garage rock upstarts The Black Belles in 2010 and quickly set herself apart from the pack, performing as a side musician to a varied group of stylistically diverse musicians on a variety of instruments, culminating with her debut solo release Bathtub Love Killings in 2014.
Bathtub Love Killings was produced by Jack White with Olivia Jean composing and playing every instrument on the album. The album was an exciting and concise statement with a controlled vision of where rock n roll can go in these modern pop dominated times. Her latest, Night Owl, takes this vision even further by placing Olivia behind the control desk in the role of producer. Surf guitar, 60s Girl Group harmonies, and punk commingle into a collection of songs depicting heartache, revenge, guilt, and frustration — It’s 'Bubblegum Garage' at its best.

-Kalena, Eric, Caitlin, Barnaby, Razz, and Becky
-Doll Parts is an original rock band from Palo Alto \ San Francisco, California that exists to create kick-ass music from a girl’s point of view. The sound veers from anthemic punk to ballads to blistering rock and roll, all with a late 90s/early 2000’s feel and a message of non-mopey girl power. The founding lineup of bassist/songwriter Kalena and vocalist Razz, share a love of mosh pits, crowd surfing, music festivals, and killer drinking songs. “I'm so tired of the chick rock cliches,” Kalena said, “There's a stereotype that female bands are either sad and lonely and pining for some dude or angry and ready to fight the world. I just want to have fun, tackle some tough issues, and do it all with sass and swagger.”
Doll Parts draws influence from artists like Joan Jett, Sum 41, The Pretty Reckless, Godsmack, Hole, Dresden Dolls, New Found Glory, and Flyleaf but has crafted a strong rock sound of its own that will be in full effect on its upcoming debut album. Kalena’s songs show her to be a true believer in the power of rock music. She loves the process of writing and performing and is constantly putting riffs and hooks together. She first met vocalist Razz in the shower on a college ski trip (long story) and they’ve been best friends and musical partners ever since. A decade and a few projects later, Doll Parts came to life and now promises to become something great for everyone involved.
