Detroit Music Award winning folk singer/songwriter Audra Kubat has released 7 albums to critical acclaim in a career that spans over 20 years. A composer, performer, educator, and Wayne State University alumni, Kubat’s work has earned her a place in the community as a resource for empowerment through songwriting and music.

Darin Bennett’s dark, bluesy, Americana music represents the new breed of the old school singer, songwriter and guitarist. He plays a combination of gritty blues and raw soul infused music with elements of world music and outlaw country. He tops it off with a powerful voice that rises from a mysterious whisper to a raging growl.

Cracking the egg that is Ben Stalets is two yolks; the first is a Country tinged, folk soaked, lyrically driven song. The second is a sweaty, rock n’ roll rooted performance. However you prefer it, you’ll end up full. American Idol, he is not, but his Hank Williams howl, sturdy fingerpicking, and road-dog mentality leave little doubt that you’ll be hearing from him again.

Pain, beauty, loss, redemption, renewal. Few artists capture life’s travails and triumphs as penetratingly and as powerfully as Kalamazoo singer-songwriter Brian Koenigsknecht…a Michigan treasure, that rare breed of singer-songwriter who can make you feel every human emotion – John Sinkevics, Local Spins
