(SouthAmericana™ ) They say that music is the language of the soul, and nothing could describe Julia Sage's music more perfectly. An inspirational artist, Julia has earned her reputation as a talented singer/songwriter and skillful performer. Through energizing live gigs and recordings, Julia continues to gain fans around the world with her distinct voice, musical style and honest, raw writing.

(Indie ) Please Ask for Paul is an emerging indie music project led by Marlo Smith and Joshua McCleskey. Longing to express themselves beyond comfortable orbit, PAFP is the resulting spectral equinox between two kindred spirits seeking company within their songs. Propelled by their signature moon-jeweled vocals, atmospheric guitar, and forward rhythms, PAFP explores themes ranging from human intuition to scouting routes to great beyond. Joining Marlo and Joshua on this musical odyssey (for full band shows) are bassist Sean Cox and drummer Jules Stewart, each bringing their own noteworthy musical backgrounds and unique stylings. Please Ask for Paul is thrilled to announce that their debut record "New Runes" is slated for release this autumn. Recorded with visionary producer Scott Seader, this eagerly anticipated album showcases their unique blend of celestial storytelling and expansive soundscapes. A second EP is already underway that will further unveil PAFP's existential songwriting and musical depth.

(Folk/indie) Paul “Sage” Cannon is from the Waipuk Clan, a part of the Kumeyaay Nation. A certified Native Healer, Paul writes and speaks on Native healing, philosophy, and cultural education. His musical projects include the Paul Cannon Band (folk, beach rock, hints of reggae) and Iron Sage Wood (grassroots folks/indie rock).
