7000apart (Sweden) -- The story began for this husband-wife duo with Amelie leaving Sweden to attend a U.S.A high school as an exchange student, where she met Jon and they fell in love. As Amelie’s exchange year ended, 7000apart was created as a way of keeping their relationship strong while being 7000 kilometers apart. After three years of long distance, they were reunited and got married. By then, their music project had grown from having something in common to a passionate career pursuit. “Organic pop” is the best way to label the genre of the album, with powerful vocals and inspirational songwriting. “We Are More” was recorded in the heart of Sweden and contains 10 songs that bring the listener on a journey of love, hope and overcoming struggles.
Jacob Miller (Portland) -- With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his style and abilities. In 2019, Jacob will release and tour a debut album which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed entirely by Miller in a SE Portland living room turned studio - songs and ideas come together to form an album that is hard, honest and heartfelt.
Of Sea and Stone (Austin) -- An emerging Americana duo known for their polished vocal harmonies and intimate songwriting. Their sound ranges from joyful to solemn, hopeful to desperate, with raw, honest lyrics carried by their haunting melodies. The duo consists of Luke Dierker and Morgan Dierker, who met in January 2014 through the popular dating app Tinder. The two quickly discovered their natural vocal chemistry and began writing together in Morgan’s hometown of Columbia, MO. The following week, the two performed their first show at Gunter Hans, a small German café in Columbia. After a few years of regularly performing in Columbia, the two got married and moved to Austin, TX.
