The Greeting Committee
-from Kansas City, MI
-Comprised of Addie Sartino, Brandon Yangmi, Pierce Turcotte and Austin Fraser, the spirit of purposeful sharing has served as something of a lifeline for Kansas City-band The Greeting Committee. Formed in 2014, soon after Sartino and Yangmi got their start playing local open-mic nights, the band self-released their debut EP It's Not All That Bad in fall 2015. The EP's lead single "Hands Down" quickly became a breakout hit, paving the way for The Greeting Committee's signing to Harvest Records when they were all still in high school.
After making their Harvest debut with the Meeting People Is Easy EP in 2017 and the subsequent release of This Is It, the band spent much of the next few years on the road, with sold-out headline shows in major markets such as Chicago, Austin, New York, Los Angeles and Minneapolis. To date, they've toured with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Tennis, Hippo Campus, and Rainbow Kitten Surprise and taken the stage at leading festivals like Lollapalooza and SXSW, in addition to delivering the I'm Afraid I'm Not Angry EP in late 2019 and appearing in Netflix's To All the Boys: Always and Forever in 2021. The coming months have a lot more in store from the band with their second album out on September 24th entitled Dandelion.

-OSTON’s musical journey began in Park City, Utah, where she grew up writing and performing songs throughout her childhood. After finishing high school, she spent the next five years in Chicago attending school for music and marketing, while also working with a multifaceted studio. The now LA-based musician is making a name for herself for her vulnerable, diary-like writing style. OSTON’s debut EP Sitting at the Kids Table (2019) has garnered over 4.5 million streams collectively. Her latest single “Lie About You” (2021) received 150,000 streams within the first five days of its release, as well as placement on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday’ and Apple Music’s ‘A-List: Pop’ in addition to mass support on TikTok. With press accolades from the likes of Ones to Watch, Fashionably Early, and Pop Matters, OSTON is solidifying her spot as one to watch this year and beyond. Her much anticipated sophomore EP Am I Talking Too Much? is set to release in Q2 of 2021.

-Maggie Gently (she/her) is a San Francisco-based indie songwriter with a fondness for wild schemes and intimate gestures. Maggie is a queer woman whose identity is important to her and the community she creates and participates in.
Maggie Gently’s music is about how making decisions for your own mental health can feel like a matter of survival. While leaning in to her pop punk and emo roots, Maggie’s new project finds moments of sweetness and quiet that draw focus to the vulnerable lyrics. After the release of her debut EP Good Cry (May 28, 2020, Brace Cove Records), Maggie Gently has been working to find community and inspiration in quarantine.
Maggie Gently’s music is inspired by the heartbreaking intimacy of bands like Snail Mail and Lala Lala, and the witchy coolness of Tancred. Maggie also finds inspiration in Meg Hayertz’ “Make It, Mean It” tarot-focused guided meditations, lesbian romance novels, and the Enneagram.
Maggie Gently’s music project was born during the dark winter days in the middle of a painful friend breakup. With the promise of a New Year/fresh start mixed in with Maggie’s Saturn Return, she started taking a good hard look at what she needed to be happy. It was a rocky, painful start to the year. She said goodbye to a friendship that was important to her, left a band that she loved, started therapy, and spent a lot of time sitting in front of the heater in her apartment writing songs about whether she was making the right decisions after all. Her music became a project for processing doubt, learning to trust herself, and eventually seeing a glimmer of a future where things are ok. Her songs became healing affirmations that you can be a thoughtful, forgiving person while still establishing boundaries and protecting your heart.
Good Cry was engineered by Grace Coleman at El Studio in San Francisco and produced by Eva Treadway (Pllush, The She’s), who also played lead guitar. Joey Grabmeier (Joy Weather, Maggie’s brother) played drums on the album, and Sinclair Riley (Pllush, The She’s) played bass.-
