Musically, Joel David Weir ranges from minimalist/intimate acoustic to indie/shoegaze to protest folk. The song and story are the thing. Advocacy and consolation for those who are often silenced and forgotten is the goal. The music and show are for people who take the time to listen, who need to be heard, and who are willing to explore the mystery of the strength and salvation that comes from being with one another in community.

Matt Griffo from Chicago is an internationally touring musical comedian, combining music with comedic lyrics. Griffo’s show is what you get if Ben Folds and Flight of the Conchords had a lovechild. Griffo sings and plays piano and ukulele. His performances are “both toe-tapping and rib-tickling” (Chicago Sun Times). You can check out his music online at

Jordan Avery is a singer/songwriter from just outside of Chicago, Illinois. Blending acoustic, pop, and indie vibes, her lyrics speak to common experiences and shared emotions. At a 17, she's already released her first single, "18," on all platforms as well as played a number of reputable venues throughout Chicagoland. 

Hannah Frank is a Midwestern songwriter whose first forays into music swept through rural country blues, raw cowboy chords, and surprising lyrics. Soaking up Chicago's varied music scene, you will now also hear traces of jazz, world, rock and the electrifying energy of urban blues. Characters step out of songs as if out of a novel. The original songs and select covers are mysterious, evocative and fun.
