Shawn Butzin will captivate you immediately with his music. Based out of Traverse City, Michigan, Shawn quickly became an up and coming singer-songwriter in the Michigan music scene. On August 2017, he released his debut solo album titled Northern Trails. The album was featured in Relix Magazine, on national podcasts, music blogs, and radio airwaves. According to No Depression, "If you're looking for some fun, you'll want to hop on-board with Shawn's music." In June of 2018, Shawn released his sophomore album, an EP, titled Adventures. Twangri-LA says, "Adventures is too short. It's so good that it leaves us wanting more, and that's actually a good thing." If you're looking for that perfect blend of Americana, outlaw country, folk music, Shawn will be sure to deliver nicely.

Kevin Farris is a singer-songwriter from the Chicagoland area, penning gritty/soulful and undeniably catchy songs, that cross the pop/rock and indie-folk genres.

A musical journey that started in his youth and unfolds into the present...Kevin cultivates his own creative spirit through powerful vocals and a sense of melodic intentionality. Thanks to familial influence, Kevin gained inspiration from a unique range of artists all while developing his own taste and musical sensibility.

You can hear him every night on WGN Radio in Chicago (AM 720) from 7pm - 10pm as well as catch him every Saturday Night at Bills Bar and Burger (30 East Hubbard Street). Let's get foxy!
