DAN RODRIGUEZ: http://www.danrodriguezmusic.com/
"Therein lies the beauty, however, that in a fast placed world like Summerfest there's a place where things can slow down for a moment and you can witness a singer-songwriter on a personal level and make a connection to their music. Dan Rodriguez is one of the standout performers in that sense, because he has an amazing ability to reach out and gather large audiences out of thin air." -- John Schulze, Performing Arts Examiner
Arthur James: https://www.arthurjamesmusic.com/
"Born in Riverside, California, the oldest child in a military family, Arthur James has been traveling all his life. His songs are the landmarks of his journey and they paint vivid landscapes of the many thousands of miles he’s seen in a struggle to find the meaning of ‘home’.
In 2012, Arthur found himself in Seattle, WA. He released an EP called The 4th Floor in 2014 comprised of songs written about his close friends lives and their real-life experiences. The 4th Floor was followed up with Anyway...Here's "Wonderwall" in 2016. This EP was inspired by Alan Lightman's novel, Mr g. After experiencing Lightman's finesse in describing what might have existed before the universe was created, Arthur wanted to try to write about just that - the absence of everything. The record includes a cover of the song, Liars, by Ron Scott which was made popular by Gregory Alan Isakov. His new EP, Heckraiser, is now available. This album was written in an effort to further expand on Arthur's instrumental and vocal abilities. It was tracked in his home in Seattle, then sent to be mixed and mastered by Sean Downes in Minot, ND. Heckraiser includes a cover of Brittle Boned by Julien Baker and a song written specifically for his dad called Father's Size.
His lyricism lends to his patience and attention to the substance of every song, with nods to his influences, Gregory Alan Isakov, David Bazan, Beth Orton, Brandi Carlile, Dolores O'Riordan and John K. Samson. " - Artist Bio
