Mark Panick is a Chicago-based musician, bandleader and songwriter best known for fronting the underground rock groups Bonemen of Barumba (who appeared on the 1982 cassette compilation Sub Pop 7 and were featured on BBC Radio One’s The John Peel Show), Black Friars Social Club and Razorhouse, who have appeared on JBTV and whose music and videos have been featured via Chicagoist, The Deli Magazine, The Minimal Beat and Radio One Chicago: https://www.intherazorhouse.com/ Jared Rabin's debut record Something Left to Say was called "An Americana masterpiece" by American Songwriter Magazine. The title track won 'First Place: Folk Song' in the 2016 USA Songwriting Competition and the self-produced record reached #15 on the Roots Music Report's Americana Radio charts. Rabin's latest EP, Wondering About the Weather, came out on May 11 2018. Midwest Action called it "unabashedly honest and warm; nothing short of a great album." It was one of the Top 50 Country/Americana albums on the RMR charts for most of the summer of 2018: https://www.jaredrabin.com/ Calling Todd Kessler a singer-songwriter simply wouldn’t do him justice. The rising folk-rock star is the consummate storyteller with a remarkable ability to take listeners on a winding, wonderful and introspective journey through the depths of the human experience. Kessler’s latest album, About Memory, was released on November 3, 2017. It was recorded in Los Angeles at New Monkey Studio (made famous by Elliot Smith), produced by Marc Daniel Nelson (Fleetwood Mac, Colbie Caillat) and Ran Jackson (Katy Perry, Goo Goo Dolls) and mastered by Eric Boulanger, who has worked with industry titans Adele, Green Day, and Neil Young: https://toddkesslermusic.com/ Donnie Biggins (Chicago’s The Shams Band; owner of Tonic Room and Harmonica Dunn; promoter of the annual Dunn Dunn Fest) released his solo debut, Profiles, on Nov 29, 2016. The album (and its subsequent record release shows) received press and airplay from the Chicago Tribune/Chicago Now, Glide Magazine, Tomorrow’s Verse, WGN Radio, WXRT, CHIRP Radio and Radio One Chicago: http://www.donniebiggins.com/ 21+ / $5 to proceed the Albany Park Food Pantry / Free Street Parking August Forte NoVo Management & Publicity http://novo.net/
