Kuinka
Kuinka
Described by NPR Music as joyous folk pop, Kuinka "laces modern folk and Americana with an electronic jolt, waltzing along the grooved edges of dream-pop, synth-pop, and Brooklyn’s mid-aughts guitar-rock revival" (Vanyaland). Their genre-defying music features several different lead singers, four-part harmony, and eclectic instrumentation including cello, banjo, synthesizers, ukulele and electronic percussion. For all of their sonic experimentation, the Seattle quartet's songs and live shows are linked by an infectious energy that remains present in everything they do. Their new EP Stay Up Late is available now on Spotify, iTunes, and at www.kuinkatheband.com.
Pink Mercury
Pink Mercury
Mercury is the only liquid metal.

Led by shapeshifting vocalist Stephanie Morgan (formerly of pop-noir powerhouse stephaniesid, and Stephanie Morgan and The Mercurists), Pink Mercury makes exploratory music within sparse structures, only some of which are predetermined, resulting in an alt-pop-rock-centered, but ultimately genre-bending, conversation.

"The band conjures many spirits... Bjork, Pink Floyd, Billie Holiday, PJ Harvey, Aerosmith, Fleetwood Mac, Cocteau Twins... while maintaining its own sovereignty." -- Wasteland

Tapers welcome.
Dr Danny
Dr Danny
While mastering timeless songwriting is a lifelong pursuit for most, Dr Danny seems to have a solid grasp on the concept at just 20 years old.

Danny Ayala was born on Long Island, NY. He began his musical journey, well intentioned but somewhat against his will, when his grandmother enrolled him in piano lessons at the age of 6. He stuck with it and quickly progressed into a prodigious talent.

Danny’s musical world opened up at an elementary school talent show, where he crossed paths with two other musical youngsters - The D’Addario brothers, Brian and Michael. Recognizing Danny’s skills, they quickly began making music together. For the last 10 years they’ve been a musical family, with Danny joining as a live member when they became The Lemon Twigs. The D’Addario's now make up the studio band for his Dr Danny project, with Brian handling production and mixing duties.

Danny’s debut EP, “Lay It On Me Straight”, was released in June 2017. His song “Fly Me Back In Time” was named “Top 50 of 2017” by Bob Boilen of NPR. He is currently working on a full length album for 2018.
