The Accidentals
The Accidentals
The Accidentals are an American musical band, formed in Traverse City, Michigan, United States in 2012, by Savannah Buist and Katie Larson. Currently the band includes the founders and musician Michael Dause, added in 2014. The group features an eclectic blend of indie folk, pop, jazz, bluegrass, rock, classical and other genres, utilizing a wide variety of instruments that reflect the group's orchestral roots and electronic influences.
The band released two full length albums and an EP between 2012 and 2016. In March 2015, they performed at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas, which featured some 2,200 acts, and were named as one of the top breakout groups by Billboard staff.
Good Morning Bedlam
Good Morning Bedlam
Good Morning Bedlam has become an innovative force in the midwest folk scene. Their shows are known for their contagious energy, with members careening about the stage, jumping and dancing with a wild playfulness. With tight soaring three part harmonies, and thumping kick-drum, they captivate their audience night after night with no intention of slowing down. Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music.”We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound,” says Isaak, frontman of GMB. Just when you think you have Good Morning Bedlam pegged, they take you in another direction. You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak says, “We’re desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how they’ll kick-back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free--to share in whatever they need to--joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!”

Early 2016, Good Morning Bedlam signed with Minneapolis record label Last Triumph and released their first full-length album, Prodigal. After showcasing their music at SXSW two years in a row, this four piece is gearing up to release their sophomore album in July of 2018 while they continue to tour full-time.
Althea Grace
Althea Grace
Althea Grace is a young singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Chicago area. Althea’s music can best be described as organic pop, with heavy influences of blues and soul, featuring her powerful, soulful voice and guitar skills to match. Growing up the daughter of music lovers and in a city overflowing with talent, music quickly became her sole passion in life. Before even learning to drive, Althea began sharing the stage with, and supporting, many notable bands such as Los Lobos, X Ambassadors, The Shins & Sylvan Esso. Michael Kaiz of Jambase described Althea as “One of Chicago’s rising gems”.
To close out the year 2017, Althea released her debut EP “Dreamers”, produced by Doyle Bramhall II. She has spent much of the last year touring the country opening for Doyle Bramhall II and Grammy award-winning band, Los Lobos.
The Blank Stairs
The Blank Stairs

Though none of us live in the same town or go to the same school, our love of music and performing has brought us together. We have been playing as a band since the summer of ‘17.
