Mae’s bio:

Armed with earnest lyricism and her acoustic guitar, Mae Krell’s branch of indie-folk music personifies the often overlooked emotions and experiences that come with modern life. Following the success of 2020 single “garden”, Mae explored honest evaluations of the world in her eyes through 2022’s imposter syndrome EP and the subsequent imposter syndrome (b sides). Now, Krell finds herself looking towards the future with a distinct clarity as she prepares to lay her heart on the line within her upcoming debut album, releasing on April 19th, 2024.

With the help of producer and multi-instrumentalist Jakob Leventhal (Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell), Mae’s unique sound offers a perfect cushion for the deeply vulnerable discussions of mental health and the struggles that plague daily life for Krell and millions of other people. Her heartfelt music continues to offer representation for those who are so often left out of the conversation, and with such an organic and broad range of support, Mae Krell is reaching new heights within her own lyrical vulnerability – all while being focused on experiencing life just one day at a time.

Grace’s bio:

Raised on the outskirts of a Texas city, now living in Philadelphia, Grace Gardner is pushing the boundaries of the singer/songwriter genre. While her music adopts many of the genre’s characteristics, she’s found inspiration in her parents’ taste in 70s and 80s rock, in the folk roots of her southern upbringing, and in the indie-storytelling she found herself returning to most. Taking it one step further: producing all of her own music allows Grace to maintain a personal, authentic touch in each of her pieces. Her lyricism is evocative and emotional, poignantly penning about the joys and tribulations in relationships, in recovery, and in her identity ” typically backdropped by fingerpicked acoustic guitar and intricate production.

Her inspirations are eclectic powerhouse writers from the 1970s — Carole King, Stevie Nicks, and Joni Mitchell are her “Big 3.” As Grace started honing in on her own musical style, finding the intersection between soft rock, indie, and folk, she’s taken even more inspiration from artists like Samia, Olivia Barton, and Madison Cunningham. Grace plays ten instruments and uses orchestral, brass, percussive, and software-based elements in her works. Along with being a singer, songwriter, and instrument player, Grace is also a producer and arranger.

Grace’s debut EP, Peach, was released in March 2023, featuring the lead single, “Deny Me.” She’s joined emerging indie artists Ella Jane, Adam Melchor, and Tiny Habits on their tours last year. This year she joins Hans Williams, Shallow Alcove, and embarks on a headline tour. Grace’s sophomore EP, “Recovery Mile,” is due in February 2024, preceded by a track and music video for the single “Lubbock” in January.
