Fat Night
Fat Night
Gabe, Dan, Nik, and Ted have been tight-knit friends since their middle and high school days in Orlando, Florida. After years of playing with each other in various bands, their shared love of funk and soul music led the four to start jamming together in Nik's woodsy backyard shed. Their shared love of greasy food kept them hanging out late into the night.

In 2013, Ohio-based soul label Colemine Records released Fat Night’s "Things You Do", a reverb-soaked single which Dusty Groove called "haunting, moody, and very compelling!" The same year, the band released their first full length, "Fat Night", followed by a six-song EP, "Lazy Days", in 2015.

Fat Night moved to Chicago in late 2016 before releasing their newest single, "Honest Man", in early 2017. They are hard at work on a new full-length album.

Blending elements of RnB, Pop, Electronic Soul, and Rock, Campbell is a true Avatar of the new direction of today's music industry. With independent artist breakthroughs such as Odd Future, Chvrches, Banks, and Macklemore, never was there a more opportune time for the DIY artist to break through the “glass ceiling” nor has there ever been a time where the ability to wear many hats was more vital to an artist’s career. An award winning singer, songwriter, producer and visual artist, Campbell is unequivocally equipped to tackle the industry’s ever-changing climate exemplifying the virtues of musical reverence, visual innovation, curated collaboration, and pure raw talent. Boasting 4 studio releases, her debut EP Nerd (2011) reaching the Top 10 NYC pop charts, her second studio album Heroes (2014) claiming an Independent Music Award for best pop album, has made her unarguably an artist to watch but perhaps even more exciting, is her newfound merging of music and animation. “An inspired audio-visual experience", according to Paper Magazine, Brittany has captured the attention of both the music and art world. Her animated music videos appearing in a multitude of festivals such as The Portland Oregon Women's Film Festival (2016) and Legends of Hollywood Film Festival (2016). Currently, Brittany is in studio, working on a 4 part series called "Stay Gold" that she calls her "personal fantasia". The first of the series, released Feb 2016, received positive reviews - Complex Mag calling her the “future of soul”.
Wyatt Waddell
Wyatt Waddell
Wyatt Waddell has been described as Chicago’s Boy Wonder for his complex melodies, exuberant presence, and powerful yet versatile vocal range, which moves seamlessly between the raspy timbre of James Brown to the melodic whimsy of Paul McCartney. Though his musicality recalls the old greats, his inventive and playful approach is entirely new. A multi-instrumentalist known for his perfect pitch and instinctive songwriting, Wyatt’s talents are on full display in his first two singles, Cyber Eyes & Time (Don't Let Me Go) released this past year. Wyatt has been bubbling at the edges of the Chicago underground and is now set to bring his infectious mix of R&B, pop and funk into the music world.
