  • Uncommon Ground 3800 N Clark St Chicago United States (map)


Hayden Arp makes music with the goal of creating moments of communion in the world. He was raised in Alexandria, VA, and attended the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, where he studied electronic music composition. He has performed in venues such as DC’s The 9:30 Club and New York’s Terminal 5 as a featured performer in Lucy Dacus’s live show. In August 2016, he released “In the Fading Light,” a song The FADER called “Tingling, gorgeous,” as well as “For Gabriel,” an EP ThrdCoast called “Beautiful and elegiac.” He has performed and worked with musicians such as The Punch Brothers, Aoife O’Donovan, and Gabriel Kahane. He lives in Richmond, VA.

Chicago-Based singer-songwriter Jessica Mindrum combines elements of indie folk and slowcore in her melodic storytelling. Her voice complements her guitar’s reverb by being soft and easy on the ears. 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. Mindrum’s songs ring like endless thoughts that hover across our minds, but she dresses them up, and puts a tune to the sadness.


Nikki Morgan is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago but with the heart of a true Carolina girl. As a singer and a writer her style takes the form of country/folk with a beautiful splash of soul and often explores the duality and truth that lies in the many facets of life. As she continues her journey you can find her belting out at various venues around the city.
