Emily Elbert weaves together a soul-folk blend of introspection, celebration, and progressive perspective. With a global, D.I.Y. spirit, she has carried her music around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows from Peru to Palestine. Anchored by what L.A. Weekly calls a "funky and engrossing groove" with "sly words in artful arrangements," the publication notes, "Elbert would be considered remarkable just for her guitar playing, which segues from hard-edged funk and blues to more gently subtle jazz intricacy. But she's an equally adept vocalist, weaving her soulful phrasing nimbly within the rhythms of her guitar chords." Emily has independently released four albums, and several singles, including 2017's protest-rocker "True Power."

In addition to her work as a solo artist, Emily has contributed her voice and guitar to projects ranging from local California bands to Grammy-winning international acts. Recently, she spent a year touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding's experimental music and theater project, "Emily’s D+Evolution." The group recorded an album to wide critical acclaim, and played shows ranging from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to the Sydney Opera House. She also lent her vocals to Dweezil Zappa's latest record, "Via Zammata," co-wrote Bruno Major's viral hit "Easily," and has been a guest member in the band of Phish's Mike Gordon.

Solo, Emily has used her music as a platform to raise funds and awareness for humanitarian and environmental efforts, attracted more than 2 million YouTube views, and opened for artists like G. Love & Special Sauce, Emily King, Leon Russell, Victor Wooten, Moonchild, and Richie Havens. Her work has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, and won awards in the U.S. and U.K.. Her fifth album, "We Who Believe in Freedom," will be released in fall 2018. Through authentic song sharing, she strives for a deepening sense of human and spiritual connection that is accessible to all.

Clayton Graham Fike is an Oklahoma City-based singer songwriter. Hailing originally from Dallas, TX (where he released his first solo EP in 2010, “Brooks & Brandywine"), Clayton eventually rooted in Nashville, TN early that same year where he began his deep dive in the music industry. Starting with his band Church Mice which split in 2012 after releasing a full length album entitled "Visit The Cemetery", Fike began working as a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist backing up artists like Counting Crows, Thad Cockrell (LEAGUES), Foreign Fields and Graham Colton. Since moving to OKC in 2013, Clayton has been heavily involved in writing and producing albums with Frontline Music and other various local artists. His songs have been described as "poetic and unadulterated - coming from and aiming for the heart." His sound has been compared to that of David Bazan (Pedro the Lion, Headphones) and David Gray with a bit of James Taylor's guitar work sprinkled in.
