Margaux Reifman is a Chicago-born musician raised on the north side. She began songwriting about a year ago but mostly just for fun. Recently, however, she began playing the ukulele after visiting Hawaii for a couple of months. Ever since then, she cannot see her life going in any other direction other than spreading her truth through music. Songwriting took off for her when she started playing the ukulele, and she now has fourteen songs with many more being written currently. She is in the process of recording an EP with five of her songs, and it will be coming out within the next month.

Sarah Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. 3 Minivans, and several greyhound trips later, Sarah has played 200+ shows a year, released 4 albums and played many festivals across North America, finding and sharing the inspiration for hundreds of songs. Rooted in folk, and skirting pop, rock and country – Sarah’s music is a collage of her own adventures, and the people she meets along the way. Her songs have made their way to the big screen, earned college radio charting in US and Canada and commercial radio play in Canada and Europe.
