He currently resides with his family in the Chicago suburb of Midlothian, and is always searching for more musical opportunities in and out of the area!

Jake Montanez got his first drum set and guitar around the age of 7 or 8 and it took him a bit to get going, he didnt really pick them up until he was 14 when he started playing drums again and joined a band at 16. He has played drums since then and around 18 he picked up the guitar again and started writing music. He has been writing music for 4+ years now and playing music for around 6. His inspirations are from alternative or pop rock bands like The Killers, The 1975 or Phoenix. He also plays sports and video games but most of his time is spent making music!

Therese Bueno is a 22 year old singer/songwriter based in Orland Park, IL. Her interest in music began at the early age of 6 when she learned to play the piano. Female composers like Taylor Swift, Carole King, and Sara Bareilles inspired Therese to pick up the guitar at 14 and write her own songs. Since then, she's been writing nonstop in hopes of recording and releasing her own album. Therese is a member of an all-girl band called "Sugar Rush," who have won multiple rockband competitions and even performed at the House of Blues. As an aspiring medical professional, Therese hopes that her music brings about healing and hope to those who hear it. She currently resides with her family in Orland Park, and she is constantly looking for opportunities to perform.
