MAKIE has an Indie Folk sound that sits perfectly with your favorite, Vintage, beach-camping playlist, or the soundtrack to your most adored independent film. Listen to MAKIE’s music and you’ll hear an eclectic blend of influences in her style and songs. From Americana to retro Pop, she’ll have you singing along, anthem style, or lost in the emotion of a story song.

From street brawls to concert halls, Gene Micofsky’s story hits all the beats. Born in south Philadelphia to a modest but supportive blue-collar family, Gene experienced the less-savory aspects of inner-city life, such as stolen bikes and gang violence. After relocating to Los Angeles, Gene Micofsky’s eclectic style has remained in tact; where he juggles songwriting, performing, composing and producing. His music draws from a wealth of genres culminating in a uniquely cinematic Americana sound. As a performer, he has shared the stage with the likes of Charlie Daniels Band, Little Big Town, Lee Brice, Hunter Hayes, Joe Nichols and many others. As a composer he has written music for Comcast, Lionsgate, Beats, Nike, Comedy Central and many more. His solo debut LP, Amusia, is slated for release Friday October 12th 2018.

Chicago-based singer/songwriter Sara Van Hecke started writing and performing her own songs at the age of 13. Drawing her musical inspiration from jazz and folk artists, she accompanies her voice on guitar and piano. Now 23, Sara just released her latest tunes, “Melrose Street Sessions,” now available on all major streaming platforms. Passionate about social justice, travel, and community, Sara writes music that often share stories about connecting people to one another. Look out for the second half of her EP “Melrose Street Sessions” in the coming months!
