“Young Americana Singer/Songwriter, Hannah Fair, has a down- home, simple, and wholesome feel to her music. Hannah's eclectic music stylings and heartfelt lyrics bring her songs and stories to life. Like a misty vapor that mysteriously forms and hangs over clear, still water in the morning, the lyrics of Hannah Fair’s music linger hauntingly in the mind while the sounds hover as gently in the air as a warm sea breeze long after the song is finished. Her music takes you to a new level of the experiences of youth—first love and first kiss, aching passion, heartache, and the need to leave the recognition of the familiar and experience new places and people. The music of this acoustic singer/songwriter is unpolished yet fresh, raw, and organic, shifting and changing as nature itself, prompting one blogger to write that “The songs are delivered with a confident, relaxed style that often gives them an immediacy that feels like she’s writing the lyrics as she is singing them.” ”

“Jennifer Hill, is starting a small fire…a fire that she hopes will ignite the need for musical diversity in a time where radio is ruled by the same rotation on every channel. The (2009) winner of Best Female Vocalist is a big voice inside a small frame. From attending the prestigious HARTT School of music, to honing her craft in NYC's lower east side, Jennifer Hill has made herself known as both an outstanding vocalist and pianist on the Indie Scene. Her band Jennifer Hill and Co. is a mix of rock,pop,alternative, and blues…and her solo work is a menage of uptempo piano pieces and brooding melodies with lyrics inspired by love,life,loss and the desire to be seen as someone of strength. She has been compared to Fiona Apple with a touch of lady gaga and can either rock you with a full band or bring you to tears (in a good way) with just her voice and the keys. She has performed concerts big and small and spearheads SWAN DAY CT to help other women reach their artistic goals/dreams.”

“Nominated for a CT Music Award, American singer/songwriter Kate Callahan’s lyrics have been called “zen-like” by folk legend Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul, and Mary). WNPR Host Colin McEnroe says “…she swings out and away from influences, where startling music is made --Kate deserves to be called an artist these days.” Kate’s third album Two Doors was produced by Jim Chapdelaine (Grammy nominated and 13 Emmys) and is an expression of optimism, exploring themes of reincarnation, marriage and spirituality. “There’s nothing quite that simple about Callahan or the music she makes,” says The Hartford Courant. She has traveled the U.S performing and opened shows for legends Judy Collins, Noel Paul Stookey, the duo Aztec-Two-Step, John Gorka, the late Bill Morrissey, and an appearance alongside Regina Spektor”
