Emily Jeanne Brown

A self-identified "singer-storyteller", Emily Jeanne Brown has found deep expression through singing since early childhood. Growing up in northern California to Bonnie Raitt, Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin, Iris Dement and Lucinda Williams, her sound draws from the Laurel Canyon folk of the 1970s peppered with Brooklyn indie-folk grit. Both intimate and cerebral, Emily's songs explore themes of catharsis, confronting the inner child, and the power of place to shape memory.

Her debut EP, 'Nina' will be released later this year.

Joy and the Wildfire

Joy and the Wildfire is an emerging new wave rock band. Born out of the collaboration between Samantha Joy Pearlman & Andrew Fox, they broke into the NYC music scene in 2021 after the release of SJP's debut solo EP “Atonement” with music that makes you want to dance and cry at the same time.

Their songs have been featured on the BMI #MusicMonday Playlist. “Unable to confine her music stylings to any one genre, ” her music "is “reminiscent of early Paramore or even Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Brutal’ […] but with the maturity of an older and wiser artist.” She also creates “Charli XCX/MARINA bubble-gum pop, and a FUN.-esque, musical theatre-style ballads,” all the while “show[ing] off that she can really frickin’ sing.”
