Brontë fall
Brontë fall
Brontë Fall is a musical potion of edgy pop-rock, Americana, and band founder Teri Bracken’s classical music training. Already an orchestral violin player, keyboardist, and vocalist, Bracken craved the rawness of Americana roots music and the aching beauty of traditional fiddle tunes. When she fell in love with the craft of songwriting, all the pieces fell into place. Traveling the country from Boston to New York to Nashville, and then back to her hometown of Chicago, Bracken set in writing songs that were unedited, honest, modern, and, at times, impolite. Outspokenly feminine and reminiscent of the Brontë sisters, who dared to have a voice in a time when women didn’t, Bracken’s voice has come to boldly define Brontë Fall.

Brontë Fall’s debut album, Silhouette Dances, allows all of the influences of Bracken’s personal journey to seep through as she continues to pursue this adventure of music and life. Silhouette Dances was released on May 23, 2017.

Dina Bach Music
Dina Bach Music
Dina Bach’s fingers first graced the keys of the family piano at the age of 10, and her love of music and ear for composition began to flourish immediately. In 2017, after years of working to make time for her music around life’s other obligations, Dina left her job as a high school Spanish teacher to pursue music full time. As a singer, songwriter, and pianist, Dina focuses on pop and country-pop where her warm vocals and playfully evocative lyrics entertain listeners and audiences alike. Her musical influences range from Sara Bareilles and Norah Jones to Carol King and Frank Sinatra.

When Dina began performing in the larger Chicago area, she quickly built a dedicated fan base. Currently, she performs solo throughout the Midwest and has played at some of Chicago’s hottest venues, including House of Blues, Joe’s Bar, Elbo Room, and Uncommon Ground. Dina also donates her time and voice to charity by performing at events such as the Autism Speaks Walk (Soldier Field, Chicago) and the Expressions Gala (Artspace 8, Chicago) in support of Autism Speaks.

In addition to solo shows, Dina routinely collaborates and shares the stage with various musicians. She opened for British singer/songwriter Callaghan, hosted a singer/songwriter showcase at Ballydoyle Pub (Downers Grove, IL), and has performed and written with two-time Grammy Award Nominee, Dave Rave. Together, Dina and Dave plan to release an album of original compositions in late 2017.

Dina's most recent release - her 2016 EP Kiss Me Like That - was made possible by the support of her fans through PledgeMusic. The album’s closing track, “Summertime,” was featured in Chicago Music Magazine’s local pulse for hot new music and Dina was invited to Chicago’s WGN Radio where she was interviewed by Mike Stephen and performed four original songs in the famous Michigan Avenue studio.

In late 2016, Dina started a songwriting challenge that requires her to write and release an original song every week for one year. She seeks inspiration and ideas from fans on social media and at shows, writes fresh lyrics, and records a video for weekly release on, “Music Monday.” In addition to fostering creativity, this challenge provides her with an opportunity to connect with fans. The response was so positive that Dina extended the challenge beyond the one year mark and started a Patreon (www.patreon.com/dinabachmusic) campaign to offer her fans the chance to support her music.

Dina is a native of Wheaton, IL, 30 miles west of Chicago, where she is currently based. She is available for performances in the Midwest and elsewhere and is currently unsigned.
