Jakk Fynn is a trans masculine pop artist based in Los Angeles. Having started in post-hardcore bands, he draws inspiration from both mainstream artists and pop-punk bands alike. This range of influence can be heard in different ways in each song, but his distinctive voice ties them all together. While enduring a tumultuous upbringing in a conservative household, Jakk found solace in music at a young age. Unfortunately, he never saw trans artists in the media and became determined to help fill that void. Jakk premiered his first video “Fire” with Billboard, has been featured in Vogue, The Advocate, and Huffpost, and most recently released a dance-pop track with weaving synths and catchy hooks titled “Future Lover.”
Rachel Grae is an outwardly happy-go-lucky yet fiercely introspective fast-rising pop artist from the outskirts of New York City. Wielding an unmistakably dynamic voice that’s warm and enveloping, her range is reminiscent of Kelly Clarkson or Demi Lovato. Paired with an ear for bouncy pop that’s rich with inviting earworms, she writes songs that are built for all emotional seasons. It’s this innate ability to connect with an audience combined with her emotion-filled delivery of these songs that’s built a substantial and rapidly growing TikTok following of devoted fans who have turned her platform into a form of group therapy.
