KIM HARRIS is a gifted cantor, leader of song and a passionate cultural advocate.  Kim is particularly interested in helping pass along the African American traditions of freedom singing that have sustained people through difficulty and oppression. If she does that, she says, "Then I'll know that I've done some good work...and it will be for the next generations to pass on the traditions as they see fit." 

HOT GLUE & THE GUN is a NYC-based, indie collective that explores the gluey intersections of song, story, & each other.  Founding members Carrie Klein & Joel McGlynn craft their work from old scraps of heartache, joy, collaboration, and conversation.  Art is not a spectator sport.  Come #BeTheGlue. Previous projects include: Autohighfidelicadillacomatic (EP-2016); The GLUEY ZOOMY SHOW (Series-2020).  www.hotglueandthegun.com/

GARY ALLARD is a soulful Contemporary Singer-Songwriter. He continues to build his unique sound by extracting inspiration from a plethora of genres including Folk Pop, Gospel, R&B and Caribbean Music. He composes his lyrics from his own personal and social experiences, striving to connect with his audience through tender yet powerful emotional singing.

MELISSA BRAVEN was always singing since day one. She started writing songs in grade school which developed into a passion as a teenager. “It was my secret, in a way---a release during a really hard time, a headspace where I always felt heard.”  Melissa studied classical voice, wanting to build a solid foundation of technique. Despite a love for classical music, she always found her mind wandering back to her own writing. “I have a deep respect for many music genres,” she says. “I just found that my writing was where I felt centered. Telling your own truth is really freeing. And I hope that maybe it can help someone? Music has incredible power to heal and empower.”  www.melissabraven.com
