Jaspar Lepak – https://www.jasparlepak.com/
Jaspar Lepak is a folk/Americana songwriter whose remarkable gift for melody is only surpassed by her poetry. A child of the Sonoran Desert, her songs are deeply influenced by the many places she has called home: Tucson, Minneapolis, Durban (South Africa), and currently Seattle. Sweeping across landscapes with an emotional depth that is extraordinary, her lyrics expose a brave vulnerability while her clear, pure voice touches the heart. “You’ll find more than enough beauty and original charm to make you a fan.” ~ Rolling Stone South Africa
Val D’Alessio – http://www.valdalessio.com
Val’s playful, spiritually centered music celebrates the human spirit with songs of outrageous joy and longings of the soul. Expressive vocals and captivating guitar form a perfect partnership to deliver her bluesy, folk-pop music, reminiscent of James Taylor, Carole King and Bonnie Raitt. She is often noted for her innovative, finger style guitar playing along with melody driven songwriting and clever, heart felt lyrics.
Mandy Troxel – http://www.mandytroxel.com
Fans of Mandy Troxel’s music often share the similar story of being swung around by the clear bell of her voice and then rooted to the spot by her lyrics. Juxtaposing the beauty of her home in the San Juan Islands with the connection and humor of small town living, her songs acknowledge the dark moments in life, while also underlying a certain optimism. “Mandy Troxel’s songs have the feel of an old friend, pulling the listener into heartfelt conversation with lyrics both wistful and wise.” ~ Jan Krist
