Born in Upstate NY, singer-songwriter Angie Bruyere spent her childhood running through the backwoods and roaming the train tracks, living the simple life that inspires many a lyric and melody. Settling in Southern California at a young age, Bruyere began a modeling career that took her on a journey around the world. Pen and paper in hand, she began writing poetry and playing her guitar, combining her two passions which led her to where she is today.
In 2014 Angie released West of The Night featuring singles "Mason Jar" and "Goodbyes." Soon after the album's release, Fender highlighted her as Artist of The Month and brought her in to re-record both singles in their Fender Sessions Live Jams.
Recently, Angie and her band, The Deserters, released their new single, "Country Radio." Produced by Jeff Hutchins, the edgy alt-country, rockabilly track is from her upcoming EP, Blood Like Wine. A tale of lust and longing for a country singer she has supposedly only heard on the radio, Angie's vocal delivery - raw, sultry and with a hint of danger - leaves you wondering if there is more truth than imagination to the story.
Angie has played at Joshua Tree's famous Pappy and Harriet's as well as other iconic venues in Southern California such as the Troubadour, The Roxy, and The Mint. In addition, she has toured extensively through the United States, as well as, Italy and England. For more information visit her official website.

LA-based singer/songwriter Joy Oladokun combines roots rock, with folk songwriting and a soulful, honest voice. Writing and playing the guitar from the age of 10, Joy has always used music as a way to make sense of the struggles and celebrate the triumph of life. Recently she released her debut album, Carry. Oladokun states 'Every song stemmed from a lesson I learned, or a lesson I'm still learning. I write to process and to heal, and I sing to help others do the same. I think this past year has taught me that my voice is one of the few gifts I have, and I can use it to spread a lot of love and lift people up. That's the heart behind the album, and that's my motivation as a person too.’
The emotionally charged "Shelter" is the first single taken from the album. The incredibly moving song is about loving, and wanting love, from someone, but being patient and letting that person (who has been hurt), come to you on their own time. Oladokun conveys the lyrics with truth, generosity, and love and has said of the track, "Shelter is a song I wrote about learning how to receive love, and fighting to give it without reservation or condition." As it should be.
