“Girl Blue is the moniker of singer-songwriter/producer Arielle O’Keefe. Compared often to the likes of Laura Marling, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King and Jeff Buckley, she is a powerhouse vocalist with the rare ability to write songs that both catch the ear and touch the heart. Girl Blue’s first single, “Fire Under Water” was released completely independently, and was immediately recognized by Spotify on their “New Music Friday” playlist. It has since been featured in Visit Las Vegas’ viral commercial “Now and Then”, and sits comfortably at over 2.5 million streams on Spotify alone. Spotify embraced Girl Blue once again with the release of her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s hit song “Dreams”, giving her another spot on “New Music Friday”. O’Keefe is a rare and genuine talent, most especially shining as a live performer, where she has the unique ability to silence a room with just her voice and a guitar. She continues to tour regularly and record her own music independently in collaboration with Just Pretend Records.”
Brother Kody is an indie-folk project by songwriter Eddie Hotaling. Known as singer and guitarist in the Albany, NY jam/rock band Glass Pony, Eddie brings another side of his songwriting to light with the more folk-centric Brother Kody. Eddie has been writing songs for 15 years and is currently working on his first record as Brother Kody; it is a collection of songs that narrate nearly a decade of unfurling, both personally and artistically, including observations on
life, lessons learned and ultimately, the varying forms that personal redemption takes in periods of growth. Influences include Conor Oberst, Jeff Mangum, and Ben Howard. www.eddiehotaling.com/brother-kody
Ryan Zimmerman is a singer/songwriter from Long Beach Island NJ. He is a roots musician dedicated to his craft of songwriting and performing live. His genre bending style of acoustic funk, reggae, folk, blues, punk rock and americana has been breaking rules of the standard Jersey shore musician for over a decade.
