Willa is an 18 year old indie rock singer-songwriter born and raised in Los Angeles. She’s had a fascination with words and stories since very young and channeled that love into music. She has been writing and singing practically her whole life. At 16 she left high school to enter a nine month long music program called LAAMP, graduating a year early online and never looked back. In the past year, she’s been gigging all over LA at venues including The Mint, El Cid, Silverlake Lounge, Break Room 86, and now Hotel Cafe. Willa values authenticity and infusing the essence of what makes music so specially impactful into every aspect of her career now and moving forward.

Manuel The Band

Hailing from Long Beach, California, Manuel the Band blurs the lines between rock, pop, and jam music, creating a warm, wide-ranging sound that’s every bit as diverse as the group’s Southern California stomping grounds. Rooted in the savvy songwriting of frontman Manuel Grajeda, it’s a sound that makes room for electric guitar, pedal steel, a two-piece horn section, and deep-set rhythms. A sound that aims not only for the head and the heart but also for the dancing shoes. Nowhere does that sound pack a bigger punch than on 2021’s Things That Can’t Be Seen, whose songs of love, loss, and personal growth find Manuel the Band putting a personal spin on the universal experiences we all share? Some of these experiences can’t be seen… but they can be heard, turning this album into a soundtrack for the ups and downs of modern-day relationships.

Jake Brewer

Jake Brewer is a 24-year-old alt-pop singer/songwriter based in New York, NY. With his latest release, “sweetly,” Jake is expanding into a collaborative territory between ambitious storytelling and a sonic shift towards anthemic melodies. The Seattle-native is a Tedx speaker, founder of FRNDLY Media, host of the Groundbreaking podcast, and has been selling out shows since 2018, touring with bands like PREP and Jenny Kern. With tens of thousands following on social media supported by collaborations with HBO Max, Tommy Hilfiger, and more, Jake is quickly gathering solidifying his role as your new favorite “boy next door.”
