Mae Powell
-from San Francisco, CA
-The Bay Area singer/songwriter fills her music with that loving optimism about the way the world guides its denizens. Raised in San Diego, Powell got the chance as a kid to watch folk musicians record tracks in an ad-hoc studio her mother and sister had set up in their garage. That early exposure to the labor and magic of music-making would ultimately shape her own path. Powell moved to San Francisco in 2014 to study broadcasting and audio production at San Francisco State University, where she began meeting and collaborating with other musicians who first drew her out of her shell. Inspired by the easygoing reflectiveness of the New York songwriter Frankie Cosmos, Powell began penning her own observations of the world around her and the people who filled it: the warm connections she’d been forging, and the anxiety that sometimes precluded them.

Mae powell is on a mission to spread love and magick across all dimensions. singer, songwriter, rainbow entity!

Analog Dog
-from San Francisco, CA
-Analog Dog makes genre fluid music in San Francisco, USA. Hailing from all corners of the country, the band came together in and around the hallowed musical breeding grounds of Golden Gate Park. With each member drawing on diverse inspirations and musical backgrounds, from self-taught to classically trained, they unite over a common love for genre-bending composition and improvisation. Honoring the vibrations of the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s with big guitar-driven hooks and stacked vocal harmonies, while simultaneously embracing modern indie pop soundscapes, Analog Dog is it’s own thing.

Marika Christine
-from San Francisco, CA
-Marika Christine is a musical dreamer from San Francisco, CA. Her songs are inspired by nature, relationships, and the highs and lows of being human. The bones of her songwriting lie in fluid chord progressions and earnest lyrics but Marika's flare for odd rhythms and gentle psychedelic tones keep the listener on their toes.

Her debut album Puzzle World was released in the early months of 2021. She was joined by Adam Wilson, Fabrizio Incerti, Maria Donjacour, and her brother Janis Stuurman. The record is a portrait of change and explores the universal journey to figure out where one belongs in their own mind and in the world beyond. It floats through a broad sonic landscape, from jangly indie rock, to acoustic guitar songs, and haunting synth lullabies. Marika Christine and her band currently perform regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area and are working on their next album. Her single “Music and Heart” was released in January 2022.
