Chicago’s Busy Bodies perform a playful brand of indie rock brimming with vocal harmony and melodic sensibility. Not content to stick with any one genre, their songs range from soulful ballads to danceable jams. At once familiar and unpredictable, the band takes inspiration from artists like Allen Toussaint, New Order, and Wilco. Busy Bodies are a truly collaborative project, fusing the songwriting talents of Ben, Mike, John & True into a vibrant sound. They are currently working on their debut release, Extended Play, to be released in early 2019.

Daniella Hope is in her final semester at Oberlin College and Conservatory where she will be receiving two degrees; one from the college in Africana Studies and one from the conservatory in Jazz Voice. She is a singer/songwriter, poet, actor and is looking forward to being more engaged in the Chicago artists' scene after her completion of undergrad.

Caroline York is a musician from the Western Suburbs of Chicago. After a lifetime of classical training and a degree from Taylor University in flute performance, she is now focused on her real love of singing/ songwriting.
