“They say lightning never strikes the same place twice…” unless, of course, you are We Are The Northern Lights, the self-proclaimed “accidental passion project” of indie pop-folk duo Hadar Orshalimy and Sheldon Low. With a sound defined by tight harmonies, melodic hooks and personal lyrics, WATNL draws comparisons to The Lumineers and The Civil Wars. But having already garnered their second placement in film and television less than a year after the project's creation, and ready to release their debut EP, it’s hard to imagine anything about WATNL being “accidental.” www.WeAreTheNorthernLights.com

Cleveland native William Harris entered into the artists' game in mid-life, after years of heavily observing the best in cinematic, culinary, musical and alcoholic arts. William takes inspiration from such diverse sources as graphic designers Saul Bass and Maurice Binder, film directors Peter Greenaway and John Waters, and the Cinema of Germany: between the wars and the films of the 1960's. From diverse sources such as these, William combines ideas via both Adobe Photoshop and his own sardonic & sarcastic wit to create his unique art.

THE WHITE ROOM release & booksigning
The White Room describes one man's journey from suffering and almost death to a place of joy in living every moment. This text is the culmination of various teachings Mr. Lyon has given over the past 8 years.
"Lyon dives deeply into the human condition through his own hero’s journey of addiction, recovery, and finally, home coming. He makes ample use of metaphorical signposts to point to transcendent experiences beyond description, allowing the reader to feel both the weight of his heavy load and the freedom of his liberation." -J. Wells, San Diego, CA
Born in Argentina, indie-folk singer-songwriter Diego Davidenko moved to New York at age nine. The transition to America, along with his subsequent moves around the country - from New York to Iowa to Texas to California - helped form the unique insight that he fashions into highly personal songs. His songs are aesthetically influenced by artists such as Bright Eyes, Elliott Smith and Belle and Sebastian, but have distinctive melodic and lyrical twists all their own.
Diego releases his sophomore album, In an Empty House, on June 2, 2017. Recorded over a warm fall weekend in a quiet, empty house in the canyons north of Los Angeles, the introspective and bare songs delve into themes of loss and impermanence, seeking to find warmth and comfort in them.
Raw, honest and thought-provoking, Diego’s earnest and heartfelt songs weave through the range of human emotions and experiences: nostalgia, love, loneliness, hope, remorse, frustration, and a yearning for meaning and human connection. With catchy and unexpected melodies, they invite audiences into the palpably intimate heart of an artist who writes and sings to make sense of and find his place in the world.
Diego has toured the United States and performs regularly at venues across Los Angeles’s underground music scene and listening rooms. He has played venues as far flung as Mexico City and his birth country of Argentina. His music has been featured in independent films including The Strongest Drug and Cures Anything. His debut album, It Isn’t Home, was well received by press and audiences and received airplay at national and international radio including KCSN (Los Angeles), KCSC (Chico, CA) and Radio Estación Sur (La Plata, Argentina).
Kyle Sherman is an indie-folk musician hailing from the musically vibrant Madison, Wisconsin. His new release "Carry Me Back" is melodically diverse, drawing from the contemporary influence of Bon Iver & The Tallest Man on Earth and past influences Nick Drake & Joni Mitchell. Combining delicately soulful vocals with a masterful percussive finger style on guitar, Kyle has developed a unique sound of his own. Yet, the true authenticity of this Wisconsinite stems from his ability to weave his own intimate and emotive experiences into each song.
