The Erly is an American rock band originating from Niles, MI. Forming in 2017, The Erly consists of Collin Mattiford, Trevor McDonald, Ivan Torres, and Fran Gleason. The Erly's first record, Shadows, blends elements of roots music, alternative, and indie rock.

Thanks Again is an independent folk trio from Crown Point, IN. Guitarist and lead singer Roman Ruiz, banjo player Adam Mihal, and bassist John MacNeil met in high school, when they began writing and playing acoustic music together as The Pigeon Boys. In November 2017, Thanks Again released their second album, "Wayfarer." The sophomore record featured a more mature sound with expanded orchestration and harmonization, and explored questions of permanence and purpose in an evolving world.

Fragile Soul is a modern mix of soulful heartfelt vocals with blues and folk rock influences. Being compared to City and Colour, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Kings of Leon they bring a unique energy to somber lyrics that resonates with their audience. Starting as a singer-songwriter duo, the group has expanded their sound by adding a drummer and bassist. They have recently released their EP “The Runaway” in July 2018 to showcase their full blues rock sound.
