‘A Little Kindness To Sit Beside’ – Steve Benjamins

That exposure drew an audience: Silence was listened to over 300,000 times between Spotify, Soundcloud and Facebook.

‘Superball’ – Lights & Bridges

Lights & Bridges is what happens when a composer of global, border-dissolving tones and beats decides to condense his symphonic visions into intimate, yet still epic slices of song, lyric and sound. It’s the evocative collision of voice and acoustic guitar stripped to its melodic essence. It’s the lush whisper of breathtaking harmony and atmosphere. It’s echoes of icons like CSN, Simon & Garfunkel, and Nick Drake. It’s a conversation with contemporaries like Bon Iver, José González, and Elliott Smith.

‘Young Invincible’ – Old Brave Souls

Originally from Cumberland, MD, Nick and Luke were both active in the Western Maryland music scene in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Nick was the drummer for Grill Body Five, a pop-punk band. Luke was a vocalist in Midnight:30 and Plan B, two Hip-Hop groups.
