Emilio Gonzalez is a singer songwriter from Tampa, Florida whose style is akin to Jeff Buckley, Joni Mitchell, and Andy Shauf. In 2008, Emilio found himself inspired by the musical stylings of The Rat Pack, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and more which were first introduced to him via the video game “Fallout 3.” During his high school career, Emilio performed with his school jazz band and participated in solo and ensemble competitions. Entering his college years, Emilio found a love for writing music, looking to the work of independent singer songwriters Lucy Rose, Andy Shauf, Julia Jacklin, and more. After performing at various open mics, restaurants, and bars, he was integrated into the Florida folk scene. This catalyzed a collaboration with artist and producer Liam Bauman, who assisted in the production and recording of Emilio’s recent EP, “Hazy.” Emilio now studies at Berklee College of Music where he continues to write songs through a creative mix of jazz and folk storytelling.

Emme Cannon is a singer-songwriter and producer whose repertoire consists of flowing ballads for life’s unpopular beauties. Along with her use of mystical lyricism, her music combines chamber pop, indie-folk, and alternative for an original and unique fusion of genres. Her most recent release “Can’t Say No To You” features belting lines of forgiveness and self-realization in toxic relationships. Her first written and produced EP, “Home Planet” explores aspects of life beyond this realm and finding love in life’s uncertainties. Emme has shared her “hypnotizing voice and delivery” (The Roanoke Times) with the Boston Book Festival, Help Save the Next Girl Foundation, The Boston Calendar, and the Songwriters in the Round (Part IV) hosted by Corey Hunley at the iconic Grandin Theatre (BB King, Ray Charles). She currently resides in Boston, studying contemporary writing and production and songwriting at Berklee College of Music.
