Shades of Green have been enjoying the organic flow and do not want to rush their music relationship. They call themselves Shades of Green because the night of their second show, one person sent a group text asking everyone to wear greens and blues. Everyone replied with screen shots of them having already chosen greens and blues to wear for the day already.


In late 2016, singer/songwriters and longtime friends, Colleen Wild and Jason Benefield, teamed up to play a show together. Quickly, the collaboration turned from a side project to the main project for both artists, and they gave the duo the name "Echo and Ransom." They now play several shows a week throughout the Chicagoland area, playing their own songs and a variety of covers spanning genres and eras.


Lovely Rose is a Chicago native with a music style that is described as a "New Oldschool feel". Rose is a vocalist who plays the piano, guitar and flute. Rose was also a featured artist on Season 13 of American Idol. Although not making it beyond the judges Rose continues to share music in Hope's to bring people into a different atmosphere. Recently Rose has featured in 2 singles with another up and coming Chicago artist, Drubeatz and is excited to announce for the first time the creation of the first Lovely Rose EP. Stay tuned on social media for a release date
