Marina City
Marina City
Marina City’s blend of R&B and alternative pop create infectiously dark and commanding choruses that have garnered this Chicago based sextet their dedicated fanbase. Brooding synthesizers reminiscent of The Weeknd sweep through the songs, while biting and soulful Motown-eque vocals dance over the top. Inspired by some of music’s biggest icons; Michael Jackson, Prince, Queen, David Bowie, along with today’s most exciting artists; The 1975, Foster The People, and The Weeknd; Marina City walks that fine line, from “mainstream alternative” to “top 40 pop."

Nationally renowned festivals, such as Riot Fest, Warped Tour, and PIQNIQ have had Marina City grace their lineup. Singles, “Better Weather” and “Man In The Mirror” have been on rotation nationally for Cumulus radio stations and “Addicted” can be heard at Chicago Bulls games. Their musical distinctiveness has earned the six-piece praise from the likes of MTV News, Alternative Press, Rock Sound, the title of Band of the Year by the Chicago Nightlife Awards and Ernie Ball.
Emily Blue
Emily Blue
Emily Blue's pop catalog is a phone call to another universe. Vibrant, neurotic, and genre-bending, the young artist pulls from some of today's most eclectic music personalities (think St. Vincent, FKA twigs, Billie Eilish). Moving far from her previous work, the upcoming record "*69" is less traditional and more character-driven, painting a portrait of Blue as a fiery pop-songstress from another realm.

Blue (and producer Max Perenchio) create forward thinking yet accessible pop tracks, landing spots on Starbucks Reserve Roastery playlist and Spotify’s Factor Happy. In 2018, Blue independently toured, performing diverse sets in nightclubs, festivals, and gender / feminism conferences around the United States. She also partnered with Nikon for the release of their Z 7 camera, showcasing Falling in Love as the first Nikon-sponsored music video on the new product. Look out for a busy future for Blue, including new music, visuals, and interactive live shows.
The Weekend Run Club
The Weekend Run Club
The Weekend Run Club is a five-piece band that combines the technical guitar stylings of alternative rock with the upbeat, dance-y feel of indie pop music. Formed in 2018, the band recently released their first single, "Holliday," on July 13, 2018, which was followed soon after by the release of their debut EP, "Okay for You."
