Pop innovator BONZIE has endlessly found new forms of expressing her vast imagination. A songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, she’s explored everything from post-rock to folk to fantastically surrealist pop, executing each with extraordinary grace. Over the years, she’s also drawn acclaim for her captivating live show (“Delicacy and drama, surrender and anger, made a riveting combination when BONZIE performed,” wrote New York Times chief popular music critic Jon Pareles following an especially magnetic SXSW set). On her third album Reincarnation, BONZIE again redefines the limits of her musicality, ultimately creating a listening experience not unlike lucid dreaming: immersive and infinitely spellbinding, yet touched with a transformative clarity. A fearlessly singular body of work, Reincarnation serves as an exquisite showcase for BONZIE’s newly emboldened songwriting. To that end, the title to Reincarnation refers to the radical sense of possibility, treading unfamiliar musical ground as she considers a world poised for change “like the shedding of skin off a snake.”
Chicago-native, Jillian Francis is a singer/songwriter who has dedicated the last decade to building her musical vision. Her voice, rooted in her love for the laurel canyon era, has given a safe space for her audience to reflect and grow from their past experiences through the vulnerability in telling her own. The image-baring lyrics and subtle folk/pop production of Jillian’s songs allow those from all walks of life to dive deep into the emotions of her stories and find pieces of themselves in the process.
Chris Kremer is a singer songwriter from the Northwest suburb of Chicago called Barrington. Chris released his first self produced album "Phantasmic" in April of 2020, and has recently been working with Synergy Studious out of Oak Lawn Illinois for his latest EP release "Major/Minor". Chris' music is somber, reflective, melancholic, and introspective of the human condition. Taking inspiration from some of the greats; Elliot Smith, Anthony Green, Jeff Tweedy, and many more, Chris' sound is anywhere from folk/rock to alternative/indie that makes your head nod, and your heart vibe. With lyrics that are honest, emotional, and authentic.
