Jamey Geston
Jamey Geston
An independent musician from Santa Barbara, CA, Jamey Geston is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, (vocals, guitar, bass, piano, ukulele) and visual artist. At ten she started playing guitar, then self-taught piano, ukulele, and bass; at eleven she begin songwriting. Jamey sees her music coinciding with art, using her designs to create merchandise as well as album art.

The renowned area creator, one of our region’s most promising young performers, with her dark twist of earnest lyrics, haunting melodies and harmonies; Jamey represents a new generation of songwriters. Unlike many of today’s most interesting recording artists, her music can’t be easily categorized, she delivers her own blend of acoustic & electric sounds that create a dreamy, vintage feel with smart nods of current folk-pop that can easily throw you back to the sixties.

Compared to artists like Angel Olsen and a "young” Joni Mitchell, she likes writing songs and making music that paints a picture which can send a message in unconventional ways. No stranger to the stage, she has opened for some amazing artists such as; Judy Collins, Peter Frampton, Albert Lee, Jeff Bridges, Melanie Safka, Crystal Bowersox, Will Champlin, Y La Bamba, and HAIM.

Jamey performs regularly as a solo artist, touring widely regionally playing from coffee houses & restaurants to top music venues and festivals. She has made stops in Colorado at The Walnut Room, D’Notes, and Jives; in Louisiana at Bears on Fairfield, The Red River Revel, and Rhino Coffee; in Minnesota at The Garage and The Acadia Cafe; in North Dakota at Proof Artisan Distillers; and in California at Noise Pop Festival (as a guest bassist for the band Dante Elephante), California Avocado Festival, Old Spanish Days, Santa Barbara Earth Day, The NAMM Show (’13-’16), Cold Spring Tavern, The Deer Lodge, SOhO Music Venue, The Lobero Theater, The Canyon Club, The Roxy, Whiskey A Go-Go, and The Mint and more.

In January 2017 she released her first single, "Malibu" and received favorable reviews. Enthusiastic about her first release, she has moved on and currently recording her first studio EP. She plans to release her second single in May 2018, before finishing her EP later this year.
Emily Wryn
Emily Wryn
Emily Wryn is a Santa Barbara County native who has been writing and performing since the tender age of 13. Her early demos were played on Nic Harcourt’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and in 2018 Emily's song “Quiet” was selected by Marissa Lorusso of NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest as one of her early favorites. She wrote: “Emily Wryn sings with a poignant weariness that evokes Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. Her [song] “Quiet,” recognizes the power old wounds can hold over us, and the bravery it takes to move past them.”
The Annie Oakley
The Annie Oakley
The Annie Oakley is a harmony based, Americana folk band. The twin duo Grace & Sophia Babb who hail from Oklahoma City, delivers sparkling harmony vocals, gorgeous melodies, and brilliant lyrics. "Their combination of entertaining storytelling and dreamy melodies have led to Rising Star and Oklahoma's Choice: Best Band awards in 2016 and a coveted official showcase at Folk Alliance International 2017," according to press materials.

I blossomed under the teachings of my own panel of sages: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, to the grooves n’ grit of rock n’ roll, rambling wisdom of the beatniks (o holy Ginsberg!), and the rebellious power of Patti Smith.”. My songs are translations of my human experience, each has a different sound that serves the unique, personal story behind it—sometimes that’s a gritty, distorted crashing of guitar chords, and sometimes that means recording rain dripping on the studio window. I guess my signatures so far include stream-of-consciousness lyricism, as I learned to write from reading the beatniks, and a voice that seems to pour out of an old crackling phonograph. My songs can be boiled down to the thoughts of a multi-faceted, ever-evolving human being—one who has been humbled by incredibly deep, hellish pain in this lifetime, but one who has also never been devoid of hope, unwavering perseverance, and passion.
