A soulful vocalist and innovative multi-instrumentalist, NYC-based singer/songwriter Rachael Sage & chamber-pop band The Sequins blend top-notch musicianship with engaging, hilarious between-song banter and improvised interaction. A 3-time Independent Music Award winner, Sage has appeared at Edinburgh Fringe and been dubbed "the quintessential East Village Renaissance woman" by Keyboard Magazine.

"Smart, piano-driven songs that forge a resonant mixture of pop, folk and jazz, with a vocal delivery that conveys stark and yearning emotion." — CMJ

Gregory Douglass' evocative, alternative/pop conjures Rufus Wainwright’s prolific musicality and Adele’s palatable soulfulness, with a voice that conspires to seduce you with beauty. Douglass is an internationally renowned independent musician with eight critically acclaimed albums under his belt. His recent spotlight on NPR's "Morning Edition" has coined him "one of New England's best-kept secrets."  

"Douglass—with his gorgeous voice and poignant, piercing lyrics—burns with a fire that cannot be extinguished or ignored." - Performing Songwriter Magazine

Mixing Brazilian pop, American soul and restless rock energy with an itinerant vision all his own, Trevor Exter is an original, the kind that brings audiences to the edge of their seats. Fascinated by the cello at an early age, he traveled to Brazil, hypnotized by the fire and tenderness in its music.  He has performed extensively across the globe.

“Singer and unconventional cellist Trevor Exter plucks and whacks at his big instrument and guides it through multiple climaxes.” -- Time Out New York
