Lena Elizabeth is a singer/songwriter based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, writing songs influenced by folk storytelling with a voice rooted in the blues. The youngest in a household full of musicians, she succeeds in blending old and new influences to create a Pop/Roots sound that is approachable across generations. Lena Elizabeth released her full length album, “Get It Right”, on November 29th, 2018. After the successful release of her debut EP, “The Line”, Lena has taken her music to the next level with this new record. “Get It Right” is a story of self-acceptance, anxiety, anger, relationships (good & bad) and through it all finding home. You can expect the same powerful vocals of Lena Elizabeth with even more confidence and attitude, upbeat and laidback grooves, Rock ‘n’ Roll anthems, honest and bold lyrics, beautiful complex harmonies, tasty guitar licks, playful bass lines, and a lot of raw emotion.

Taylor James Donskey is finding his way through the alternative country tradition, sharing stories of everyday people. Bare bones arrangements and simple melodies invite listeners in to explore the emerging themes that shape relationships in times like these. These songs are the lasting impressions of individuals living a simple but impactful life. Never a polished feel, but always just right, Taylor builds on the solid foundations that were given new life by Gillian Welch; perpetuated by Jeff Tweedy and set on its head by Blake Mills. The self titled EP is due out fall of 2019.
