Jeffrey Martin tours full time now. He is always making music, and he is always coming through your town. He misses teaching like you might miss a good old friend who you know you'll meet again. Jeffrey has put out bunches of music since 2009, but he's most proud of the more recent stuff. He's fortunate to be a part of the great and loving family that is Fluff and Gravy Records in Portland, OR. "One Go Around," which released in October 2017, is his 3rd full length album. At his luckiest, he's shared shows with the likes of Sean Hayes, Gregory Alan Isakov, Courtney Marie Andrews, Jeffrey Foucault, Joe Pug, Peter Mulvey, Amanda Shires, Sean Rowe, Tracy Grammer, David Wilcox, and others. He currently lives in Portland, OR but feels lately that it has become a secret that someone figured out how to monetize. And since he has no money of any kind, everything beautiful about the city is marred by the quiet ticking of a countdown toward the day that he'll have to find somewhere to live that doesn't require a steady bleeding fortune.

Emma Grace is a passionate queer singer-songwriter and ukulele player from Chicago, IL. Her music is driven by her bold and powerful voice and fierce strumming on her baritone ukulele. Emma brings a whole new powerful meaning to folk/punk. She just released her first EP Peach Tree, which is on all listening platforms worldwide. You can find her performing weekly all over Chicago. She's a regular performer at Chicago's sexiest antique speakeasy, The Drifter, where she sometimes pops on her sparkly peach pasties. Follow her on instagram @bemma_grace to get the latest updates on performances.
