Dan Mills
Singer/Songwriter Dan Mills fronts a 5 piece Folk/Americana band that's based between Brooklyn NY and Cambridge MA. Mills portrayed country-guitar legend Carl Perkins in the Broadway cast of Million Dollar Quartet, and his song "Best I Could" earned him a nomination for Sirius XM Coffeehouse's “Singer/Songwriter Discovery of the Year".

Currently celebrating the release of his new full length album Something Good (7/7/17), Mills has combined his knack for writing honest, lyrically driven folks songs with the raw Sun Records twang that has seeped into his artistic voice. Sincere and bittersweet, Something Good is a love letter to cheap wine and deep love, dive bars and indecision, quiet train rides, and the unwavering hope of a hungry artist.
Andrew St. James
Andrew St. James
Andrew St. James outlook may seem contrary to his generations unwavering optimism and the idea that the best is yet to come…that what we have done before is only setting the stage. His music is complex and introspective and sometimes dark. Like the over 50 million young people of his generation, he grew up with images of the Twin Towers falling; Occupy Wall Street; wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and inner-city violence being replayed daily on the nightly news...and it shows in his writing. As a voyeur of modern life’s travails, his lyrics echo with complex questions and commentary.
Described as a Dylanesque voice of the millennial generation, his new album, Shakes will both surprise us and indulge our need for a new but familiar voice. As part of that super generation aged 18-29 called Millennials, St. James exhibits all of the narcissism of his age, bringing the perspectives of his generation to an old genre of rock music with a new connectivity we have not seen before.
On his debut album, Doldrums, St James teams up with veteran Bay Area producer Jim Greer (a platinum record recipient for his work with Foster the People) to produce a work of deep themes and magical lyrics.
