Lily & Madeleine’s goal is to release an album-a-year for three years — a rare feat when the trend among singer-songwriters is to space albums by half-decades. So far, they’re on track: Fumes, the duo’s second LP, was released October 28, 2014, 366 days after last year’s Lily & Madeleine.The sophomore album is a leap forward for the duo, a mature sentiment of two gifted young artists who have launched from their hometown onto the world stage with speed and grace.
When Indianapolis sisters Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz first started making music together, it didn’t cross their minds that they could make a living at it. Although they now find themselves in an acclaimed full-fledged career, what got them here has nothing to do with money, and everything to do with the spirit.

St. Louis native Alicia Olatuja burst onto the national scene with her President Obama’s second inauguration, but she has been honing her craft for many years, playing alongside giants like Chaka Khan, Christian McBride, and BeBe Winans. In fact, the 30-year-old Olatuja’s reputation has been growing since her arrival in New York in 2005. The New York Times praised her performance with her husband, bassist Michael Olatuja, in their African jazz band The Olatuja Project, lauding her “strong, lustrous tone and an amiably regal presence onstage.” Blending elements of classical, jazz, gospel, and pop, Olatuja’s unique and soulful musical style is refined and captivating.

London based artist Elderbrook is the latest individual to make a mark on music with his down-tempo hip-hop inspired tracks. The 20-year-old who plays guitar, bass, piano and drums started developing his production skills while studying at Bath Spa University. In his dorm room Elderbrook, real name Alex Kotz, began experimenting with movie samples and using his voice to add a bounce to his demos. ‘I started creating hip hop beats and singing over them until it evolved into more of an electronic sound. I keep it minimal – when a song is broken down it leaves more room for intricacies which can be fun’.
