Julie Cira & The Wake
Julie Cira & The Wake are a queer, punk-at-heart alt-country/rock band based in western Massachusetts. The Wake released a self-titled EP in 2016 and a single, Reckless, in 2018. They are currently recording their first full-length album. For Bandcamp Daily, Jonathan Bernstein says, “Julie Cira’s music blends the melodicism of Lucinda Williams with the punk energy of Lydia Loveless."
Autistic, Disabled and Fierce! I maybe autist with Cerebral Palsy, might have a few adaptations to my instruments, but uniquely, I am devoted to change perceptions, eliminate stigma, promote equality and a broader audience for our community.

The Ragshakers are a ghost folk duo from Washington state, featuring acoustic guitars, the musical saw, and dual vocalists. The Ragshakers are an eclectic band taking inspiration from the old time, jazz, country, and americana traditions. They write songs about the end of the world, dying, blood, and monsters.
The Odd Birds
The Odd Birds are two of the least cool rock stars you'll ever meet (no really, we met doing musical theatre). They realized they shared a love of music and decided to make some together. They've been playing and singing their blend of Americana/country/folk-y music throughout California for over a decade and just finished a tour in Europe. The Odd Birds strength lies in their vocal harmonies - with Ron's rougher twang complementing Jennifer's sweeter voice, they bring out the best in each other. They play intimate music about healing broken hearts and repairing broken connections, with a focus on a sound that's real and accessible. They released their first EP Better Days in 2020 and now are excited to release their first full-length album Tremolo Heart.
