Barton Hartshorn, first and foremost has a great voice that takes us straight to the heart of the song. Steeped in an English pop-folk universe, his songs have a 70s west coast Americana flavour; it’s this blend of scenes and sounds that gives them their distinctly personal and original touch. Imagine Lloyd Cole fronting Steely Dan or Paul McCartney sitting in with the Eagles.


Olivia Ports is a singer/songwriter from the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois whose passion lies in writing about impending doom in an upbeat way. Olivia specializes in live performance and creating a unique environment at every show, with a combination of dark lyrics and indie/pop melodies. The Olivia Ports Band consists of lead guitarist Chris Leonard, bassist Bill Syniar, and drummer/vocalist David Kelly. Each member has an extensive musical background, from audio engineering to live performance and touring. This mix of specialties distinguishes the group, and they will be sure to make light of the darkest lyric.
