Mason Summit
Mason Summit
Born into a family of actors, musicians, & writers, Mason Summit has been making music for as long as he can remember. As a young child, he cut his teeth performing Johnny Cash covers at local coffee shops, accompanied by his father, the late Christopher Allport, whose sudden death in 2008 led Summit to songwriting. Inspired by multifaceted artists such as Buddy Holly, Brian Wilson, Elliott Smith & Jon Brion, Summit began producing his own material early on. To date, he has independently released four self-produced albums of original songs: Absentee (2012), Loud Music & Soft Drinks (2014), Gunpowder Tracks (2016), & this year’s Summer Cold, each of which has received critical acclaim from publications including revered alt-country authority No Depression. A Los Angeles native, Summit has been lucky enough to perform his music at many the city’s renowned venues, including Hotel Cafe, the Satellite, Silverlake Lounge, Genghis Cohen, Room 5 & the House of Blues. An ardent supporter of progressive social movements, Mason has also participated in events for Free Arts for Abused Children, The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the Autism Think Tank, & Everytown.
Aluna
Aluna
ALUNA started writing music at 9 years old when her dad dropped a guitar in her lap. By the time she was 18, she was writing a new song every day and recording them in her bedroom. Struggling with stage fright, she only started performing in the spring of 2017 when she joined a folk duo named Olivia & Aluna. After the duo split up, she decided to face her fear and start performing as a solo artist. She has performed alongside Kenny Loggins, Jack Johnson, and David Crosby at the Jack Johnson & Friends benefit concert, and had the privilege of opening for Ingrid Michaelson and Jon McLaughlin at the 2015 Kids Helping Kids concert. Her musical influences are Emily King, The Staves, Nora Jones, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Lauryn Hill.
