Alexz Johnson is a Canadian singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. With her success in TV and film over the years she has built a supportive following which has allowed her to pursue her passion for creating a unique pop/soul/folk sound. In early 2012 Alexz launched a Kickstarter campaign in which she raised funds to support her U.S. touring debut... this summer's Skipping Stone Tour. "Alexz Johnson exudes all of the highs and lows of her life and lays them out in her lyrics and completely bares her soul for all the world to hear. Truly emotional, gut wrenching and epic!" - Rob Daily (Daily Unsigned) Charlene Kaye
It's been all systems go for Hawaii-born, New York-based Charlene Kaye since releasing her sophomore album "Animal Love," which reached #15 on the iTunes pop charts upon its release this May and has been hailed as "a tour de force of Kaye's songwriting talents and her voice" (the Pop Stereo) and "fluent in classical piano as [it] is in glam rock" (the New Yorker). In addition to touring relentlessly and playing CMJ and SXSW festivals, the ambitious songwriter/multi-instrumentalist has earned enthusiastic reviews from PopMatters, VH1, Huffington Post, NPR, The Atlantic, the NY Deli, the Village Voice and more for her commanding voice, deft guitar playing and electrifying live shows. She has shared a bill with the likes of Big Boi, Minus the Bear and Holly Miranda and has over a million views on her YouTube channel. This past November and again in May, she went on two national tours supporting musical theater/internet sensation Team StarKid, earning her thousands of new fans. Her single "Dress and Tie" featuring good friend Darren Criss of Glee was featured in a promo for NBC's Chuck, had extensive play on radio stations nationwide, and was selected as official boarding music for Delta Airlines. With a sound that fuses the buoyant pop of Robyn and Niki & the Dove, the vintage soul of Prince, and the sentimentality of Rufus Wainwright, Charlene Kaye is a force whose music is at once classic and contemporary, of the times yet unmistakably timeless. With a rapidly growing fan base and more touring on the horizon, Kaye shows no signs of slowing down, picking up steam even before she leaves the ground.
