Bong Wish
Bong Wish
Mariam Saleh began performing under the heady moniker of BONG WISH in the Massachusetts of yesteryear. Drawing from British folk rock and fantasy, Bong Wish skews to the far out lyrically, encouraging universal love and inner peace. The debut EP presents a patchouli-scented fantasia of pure, unsolicited rage. Mostly home-recorded, the eponymous EP sees Mariam and her mystical cohorts explore different moods, styles and vibes across four tracks, ranging from lush string arrangements and exotic flutes to shimmering guitars and earthy percussion.

Ty Maxon
Ty Maxon
Ty Maxon is a Michigan native but calls Chicago home these days. He has recently been featured on NPR's The Morning Shift as well as Daytrotter who named Maxon's "I Will Die Tonight" one of the best songs of 2014. He is currently recording his next full-length LP, "Rooms Within Rooms," to be released later this year.

Last year’s Calling of the Crows—whose stripped-down instrumentation and backwoods, swampy folk give it moments of bare darkness—opens with its best track, so that I was sold right away. “To Theoda” is a frail yarn, with Ryan Suzuka’s harmonica weaving through guitar and banjo, and Maxon commands it totally, not only with his beautiful guitar melody but also with the way he holds on to his notes when he sings—it’s as though he’s trying to get you to gently cock your head and listen in.
