Nick Scarpinato is an acoustic singer/songwriter based out of Midlothian, IL. He started writing songs after he got his first guitar before his freshmen year of high school, and he's been writing songs ever since! He attended and graduated from Millikin University in May of 2018 with a Bachelor's of Music in Commercial Music with a vocal emphasis, and in his time there he recorded his first full-length album: With Regards... From Far Away! In the past, he's played shows of all kinds in venues big and small, including a gig at the House of Blues in downtown Chicago! He currently resides with his family in the Chicago suburb of Midlothian, and is always searching for more musical opportunities in and out of the area!

New York City native recent transplant to Chicago. Kate formed 4Blackroses in NYC and moved abroad to Seoul, SK to follow her urge to travel. While there, she met a group of talented musicians who worked together in a tight knit musical community. Upon return, moving to Chicago she also found this same vibe in the Chicago music community. She is currently writing and recording her third album out in January 2020. People say her music reminds her of Portishead/Fiona Apple/ Grace Slick. She can be found playing around Chicago solo, as a duo, or with full band -bass drums guitar vocals. Stay tuned!
