My name is Matt McNish. I'm a performance artist currently based in Chicago. I've released two albums in 2018, and I am gearing up to record and release a third with my band.

Her mixtape, Worm Human, is streamable on all things streaming, and her debut LP, Ghastly will be released early 2019.

Grace Blackford w/ Morgan Pirtle & Cassidy Rae - 7PM | $10


$10 COVER CHARGE IS ADDED TO YOUR FOOD AND BEVERAGE BILL


With the release of the Home EP, Grace Blackford takes the best parts of some classic genres to breed a sound familiar, but her own. Lush with addicting progressions, a classic jazz vocal approach, and plenty of pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of neo-soul anthems. The first single, “Darkness", pulls you in with its infectious vintage soul vibe, followed by its emotionally driven vocals and its ability to build and breathe as it plays on. “'Darkness' is about the natural doubts and confusion that can arise in a long-term relationship. It also plays with the guilt that often accompany these doubts that might arise; 'How do you know what you’re doing? How do you know if it’s real?' Committing to someone is a deliberate choice that will naturally come with what-ifs, just like any big decision, and this song explores those feelings. ” explains the songwriter of her single. Although the single does speak volumes for the EP, to get a real understanding for where Blackford is coming from, it should be heard in its entirety. “I think its revealed to me that I do not fit in just one genre, and every song I write is a cross between so many genres; jazz, r&b, pop. This realization is cool but also inspires me to see what could happen if I hone it in and focus on one genre, or even try to mix them more intentionally. These songs evolved very organically. Hearing them back has definitely given me ideas for what I want to work on in the future, which I think will cause my sound to mature.” says Blackford of creating the record. Born and raised in Ohio to a musical family, Grace Blackford has always loved music, but she knew she had to learn more about it to truly master her craft. After taking a trip to Chicago with her mother during her high school years, she fell in love with the city fairly quickly and ended up attending a liberal arts school near Chicago to study Jazz. During her time in college she made valuable musical connections, including the very musicians featured on her EP, along with others that taught her about bravery and musicality. The Home EP is a testament to where she is at with her sound right now. Having performed at some classic venues like The Elbo Room, Cafe Mustache, Northbar, and more, Grace is certainly not new to spreading the music through live performance.


Morgan Pirtle is a versatile vocalist, composer, and arranger in Chicago. As a student of jazz, her music is influenced by the genre, but also resonates with pop, soul, and R&B. She studied at UIC with vocalist Cheryl Wilson and previously has worked with artists such as Rufus Reid, Sheila Jordan, Jon Faddis, Jay Clayton, Dee Alexander, Jennifer Barnes, and Greg Jasperse. You can find her performing all over Chicago-land, including such venues and events as the Hyde Park Jazz Festival, Chicago Summer Dance, The Shedd Aquarium's Jazzin' at the Shedd series, Schubas, the Jazz Showcase, the Promontory, Emporium, and more. She recently made her debut at the 40th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival with her group Morgan Pirtle + 5. In 2018, she was named a Luminarts Fellow in Jazz, won the People's Choice Award at the Luminarts 2018 Jazz Finals, and was named Outstanding Undergraduate Vocalist in the 2018 DownBeat Student Music Awards. Her debut EP, “Muse” will be released in February 2019.


Cassidy Rae is a Rockford raised and Chicago based artist. Singing since the age of 5, Cassidy studied classical voice in college where she developed her craft, infused with R&B and soul. With every set, she now yearns to speak to all through every song, cover or original.

What do you get when you take 90s indie rock and temper it through Chicago’s harsh winters? Wildcat, that’s what. Tom Reeder, Alex Kisiel, Steve Watson, Conor Hibler, Mike Musto, and Stevan Vasich make up the Chicago-based sextet, delivering their powerful brand of 90s-influenced indie rock with reckless abandon.

Formed in 2016, Wildcat has steadily grown from a two-man outfit playing one-off shows to a six-piece staple of the Chicago scene performing regularly. Known for their energetic and exciting live performances, their horn section sets them apart from the pack, creating rich harmonies that soar over the rest of the band.

Wildcat is currently recording their debut EP Western, and will be releasing it in 2019. You can listen to their first single “Avalon” now.


Caitlin Edwards. Just a girl and her guitar, violin, and piano.


Hailing from Chicago, Lunar Ticks (Ryan Mannix) aim to barrel through stylistic boundaries by recreating and expanding on roots music (rock, jazz, punk, country, funk, soul, world, bluegrass etc.), with a DIY ethic and a jovial attitude. The band is influenced by the innovative Alternative rock of Wilco and My Morning Jacket, with a healthy touch of improvisation and composition in the vein of Umphrey’s Mcgee and Phish.

Matt Martino w/ Apres Pompeii - 6:30PM | $10


$10 COVER CHARGE IS ADDED TO YOUR FOOD AND BEVERAGE BILL


After a five-year hiatus spent recovering from a neck injury that nearly derailed his career, singer/songwriter Matt Martino is back on tour and creating new music in 2018. Martino’s star was rising following the success of his debut album, “Let it Shine,” in 2007. In the years that followed, his tunes could be heard on prime-time television and independent films all over the world. “Let it Shine” appeared on the 2008 Grammy ballot in six categories, including Best New Artist, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year. Following rave reviews from Music Row magazine and other prominent music industry publications, he released three additional singles and re-released a collection of back-catalog tunes before declining health finally halted his music career entirely in 2012. After a frustrating five-year healing period fraught with inaccurate diagnoses and setbacks, Martino was finally well enough to return to the stage in 2017. A series of small, intimate house concerts throughout the year allowed Martino to re-acclimate to performing and has reignited his desire to play. Response has been overwhelmingly positive and Martino will continue to pursue house concerts and intimate performing opportunities in 2018 while also revisiting many of the larger venues in which he has performed in the past. These performances will include long-time collaborators Dan Hagemann and Dennis Lee, as well as new projects in the works with musicians from Nashville and elsewhere. After an extended silence, the promise of new music from Matt Martino is in the works.


Apres Pompeii is a project by Chicago-based, Pittsburgh native, Zachary Weiss. Weiss combines folk-influenced musicianship, poetic lyrics, and soaring melodies to create a dynamic and emotional journey with each album. Lead, the latest Apres Pompeii long playing release, is a bare-all examination of mental health and sexuality that is told through songs that are always moving and shifting beneath the surface.

$10 COVER CHARGE IS ADDED TO YOUR FOOD AND BEVERAGE BILL


Explosive vocals and rich guitar sounds aren't the only things that catch your attention when Laura Glyda performs. Deep and direct lyrics keep you listening while her confidence in the spotlight keeps you watching. Above all, the Chicago native's songs ring out with truth, and the poetry you can find within that truth. Her latest record, "Radio Ghosts," is a rock album rooted in storytelling that explores the journey from heartbreak to hope and back again.


From standing on her bed, singing into her hairbrush in Upstate New York at the age of 5…to playing sold out respected venues and festivals in Central Florida… Melissa’s music is as diverse as her upbringing. Influenced by such artists as Queen, Billy Joel, Sheryl Crow, The Beatles, The Stones, Matchbox Twenty & Melissa Etheridge, Crispo’s style leaves an impression on every ear that hears her. Melissa has written and recorded numerous solo projects, crafting her songs from personal experience and heartache. Her songs are a diary of her soul, set to a melody. Melissa’s instinctive nature to capture an audience with her passionate lyrics are the main reason that her fan-base stretches throughout the state of Florida and beyond. Crispo has performed on the Melissa Etheridge Cruise for the last two years. From her exposure on those cruises; it opened doors to gaining new fans from across the nation & beyond and being asked to perform on the Country Cruising Cruise along with artists such as Chris Young, Kelsea Ballerini, Locash, Montgomery Gentry & Diamond Rio. Crispo has also opened for such acts as STYX, Sophie B. Hawkins & Jefferson Starship. Though Melissa’s music wouldn’t be deemed “country,” her music even inspired the largest country station in Florida, the 100,000 watt powerhouse 97.5 WPCV, to spin her singles “You’re Gone.” & "Tomboy." Melissa's latest accolade was winning SSA's 2017 Songwriter of the year! If Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow and Stevie Nicks had a love-child, you would get the powerhouse voice of Melissa Crispo!! Her debut album “A Break in the Clouds” and her brand new EP "Tomboy" is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Pandora Radio. Crispo is currently in the studio w/ Producer Cliff Brown recording her next full length album.


Kenna is navigating life in Nashville, TN, while telling stories of our common humanness through her music. She creates an organic balance of indie, pop and americana. Grounding in the intersection of these genres, her authentic lyrics serve as a transparent barrier to her soul, exposing the themes of love, release and growth that unite each and every soul on this planet. She began fulfilling her purpose at the age of 12 when she first picked up a guitar. It was then that she discovered a melody that matched her experiences, shaping her into an honest and introspective songwriter. She attended Berklee College of Music and moved to Nashville shortly after graduating. Being the master creator she is, Kenna quickly went to work crafting the life of her dreams in Music City. Her lyrics serve as a mirror, leaving listeners smiling at their honest truth, stripped of the fluff and the bullshit. Tapping into her vulnerability, Kenna created a new sound for herself in late 2017. In early 2018, recording with producer and co-writer, Jared Anderson, she began to create a record that would put the human experience at center stage. Her debut EP, In the Grey, is out now on all listening platforms. She will be touring for her EP in the winter months.

Chicago Songwriters James Curley and Ilsabe OConnell both flew solo and under the radar for a bunch of years.

“Joe’s got a strong and unique voice and sings like he means what he says. Having worked a bit on his new recording, it’s clear to me that he does.” --Willy Porter Joe Richter sings from the heart, emotes his truth with sweet melodies and telegraphs no pretensions in his approach to the microphone. He loves the songcraft of his musical idol Billy Joel as well as Ryan Adams. Richter’s early inspirations included Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Springsteen and, well, Elvis. Richter’s songs are personal yet hold broader meaning. A song to his wife, Emily, also rings true to a world wracked with violent events. "We look around and we hear the sound of a world so down, the pain the hurt and the fear, our love drowns it out, I love the love that I feel for you, I love the way you love me too, I can't get over you." Richter’s first-ever full-band recording “Revival” showcases the sound he envisioned when entering the studio in 2017 with some of Milwaukee’s finest session players. Joe’s Milwaukee music pal Willy Porter lends solo guitar support on the lead single “Happy Tears” that dropped February 26th. “I’ve always wanted to put a full band behind this music,” says Richter. After assembling his first band in 2008, Richter went to Nashville to record his first record. Due to an unsatisfactory album mix, the band disbanded, and the project was scrapped. Richter released a solo acoustic album in 2012 entitled “Grace.” He also formed a band called Joe Richter and Those Fabulous Tremtones to play Milwaukee night club gigs. Since then, the former factory assembly worker has applied himself tirelessly to gigs around southeast Wisconsin performing his own material as well as in-demand covers. He’s willing to play “Piano Man” but he’d rather go deeper into the Joel library. The new album’s title connotes gospel, and Richter is fine with that, but says it’s more about his musical transformation, improvement and growth. His day job changed as well when he returned to school to learn respiratory therapy, a skill he employs at a hospital in Milwaukee’s central city. In 2017, Richter debuted as lead vocalist in the Daryl Stuermer Band performing the songs of Genesis and Phil Collins. Stuermer has been a member of the Genesis and Collins touring bands for decades. Not bad company for singer-songwriter Richter, who one Milwaukee radio disc jockey described as delivering songs “full of pure wonder, delivered with exquisite pop sensibility and lyrical phrasing like a heart-warming conversation.” Richter is emerging in the metro-Milwaukee area – performing to packed house crowds at Summerfest, Anodyne and most recently, The Back Room at Colectivo. He is poised to share his musical talents and heartfelt songs through a wider audience that gets just how much he wants to reach them with his songs.


Brian Hoyt is a Chicago based singer/songwriter who got his start playing professionally in 2015. His sound is blend of Americana and Folk and is driven by his acoustic rhythm guitar and expressive lyrics. He’s been building up his reputation as a strong live performer over the past few years by playing hundreds of shows all over the Chicagoland area at venues ranging from Navy Pier, to the local dive bar, and everywhere in between. His live shows are perfect mix of unique pop covers and soulful originals. Brian released his first EP “Going Home” in May of 2017 and followed that with his second EP "Chicago" in January of 2018.


Dylan Hankey is a Chicago Singer Songwriter who has sharpened his teeth on cover gigs for over the past half decade. Now joined with old music comrades Eric Selke and Matt Levon, the Dylan Hankey Trio is set to perform some honest, upbeat and relate-able original music. With subject matter spilling from Dylan's experience as a working musician and city dweller in general, listeners are sure to find a chord or two that calls back to their own lives.

She confronts existential crises, heartache, and loneliness through deeply honest lyricism. She doesn’t hold back when posing questions rooted in the human condition which encourages listeners to do the same.

Before there was JusSoL, a free-spirited raspy voiced sol singer/songwriter/part-time rapper, there was just Liz. Liz was and well still is a nice, quiet, passive, emotional hopeless romantic who tries to find the silver lining in the darkest of skies. However, when the Chicago south side native was tired of quietly wearing her heart on her sleeve she evolved into this powerful still hopeless and still romantic voice that could mend the brokenhearted while making the saddest of sols weep known as JusSoL. Under her former moniker "Sunnie Storm" she was able to use her voice to connect with people and to connect people something she hopes to continue to do on an even larger scale as "Jus." Her love for 90s R&B shines through every melody and every lyrics that she pens as she has shifted her focus to creating music that discusses REAL love, becoming disappointing by love and being lost in it. She believes that with love all things are possible including the one thing we all seem to desire, freedom.

It started in an airplane from Kunming, China to Hong Kong. Suri was deciding whether she wanted to take a piano teaching job away from Chicago, where she was born and raised. As fears of failure, and worries about her insecurities rose to the surface mid-flight, she knew she couldn't make a choice at that very moment, but she knew one thing for sure, and that was to write a song. Between the yes and No, she had to write the song. Suri is still connected to her classical music roots, but has performed as a Jazz singer and as a folk/pop artist. She’s recently teamed up with producer, mixer Taylor K. Phipps for her latest project “As I Am”. The EP is a fusion of Suri’s sweet vocals, poetic lyrics, and piano themes with the electric, synth feel. Suri's first melodies emerged from uncomfortable times whether she was struggling with her indecisiveness, going through a heartbreak, or when she was on a plane moving half-way across the world. She may not know your story, but she hopes you will find that hers resonants with yours.



M A L O is a creature of simplicity. A creator. A player of conscience. The Chicago native may be in the prime of her youth, but her music tells a story as old as the venues she has inhabited. Having graced stages like New York City's Carnegie Hall, Liverpool's own Cavern Club, and most recently the pages of Relix Magazine, she is no stranger to the mystic and magic of captivating an audience. "Music gives me a soul. I play for one simple reason. It is my life support. Without music, I am just a passerby though." M A L O recently released her debut solo album, Born in a Bad Way. The piece is a haunted, self-reflective collection of ethereal, multidimensional tracks— an authentic snapshot of a creative’s attempt to release themselves from apathy as a means of getting by. It was recorded in Brooklyn, NY at Douglass Studios. "I admit that I don't have any definitive goals as an artist— but I have preoccupation with the human condition. Writing music, for me, allows me to indulge that. I play for no other reason than to create something using all of my senses. At the base of our populous, we are all the same being— that’s the head, as they call it in jazz. And then you’ve got the personhood of each individual being, and well, that is improvisation. It makes me terribly nervous to not be fully aware of how people resolve when I’m watching them listen to my music, but I wouldn’t trade that feeling for the world.” M A L O's debut album, Born in a Bad Way, is available at all online retailers now.
