Elijah’s musical journey began when he was just 7 years old. His father taught him three chords on an old acoustic guitar and he has not put the guitar down ever since. He was influenced early on by a musical family who exposed him to all of the music that Austin, Texas has to offer. Elijah competed in and won the Old Settler’s Music Festival Youth Talent Competition in April of 2019. He was named a 2020 National Young Arts Foundation merit winner. The 21 year old Austin, Texas native released his first EP “When I was on Cloud Nine“ in 2021. His raw and honest musicality and lyricism can’t help but stir emotion in the listener’s ear. His most recent releases include “Too Late” and “Pipe Dream." His music is influenced by the likes of Gary Clark Jr., Ray Lamontagne, John Mayer, Young the Giant, and Paulo Nutini, to name just a few.
Kate Heron is an artist based in Austin, TX and has been performing for over two decades, originally studying film sound design and opera performance, now channeling her love of building sonic worlds into writing ethereal folk rock music for the past two years.
Her performances have been described as "light, powerful, transcending," and "beautiful music with a voice that will leave you shook." She can also be found in countless bands in Austin, spanning all kinds of genres, playing keys, guitar, percussion, and is the co-lead singer and keyboardist of doom folk band, Great Howl.
Heron's inspiration follows along artists such as Florence Welch, Lucy Dacus, Julia Jacklin, and Mitski, and her sound has been known to draw audiences in the moment she starts to perform, even past the venue doors, to people walking by.
