Born in New York and raised in Montreal, Common Holly (AKA Brigitte Naggar) puts unpredictable compositional elements into a singer-songwriter/folk framework, packaged in textured, eclectic electro-acoustic production. Her album, Playing House, contemplates the notion that it is conscious thought and deliberate action that defines and cements maturation from child to adult.
Ru is a Swedish singer, songwriter and lyricist, currently based in Berlin. Her music may be described as a subtle blend of experimental artpop and timeless folk, with influences found in artists such as Vashti Bunyan, José González, Sigur Rós and alike. Her sound explores the contrast between harmonious vocals, haunting melodies and atmospheric guitars with a storytelling speaking of Scandinavian wilderness and cold, roiling seas. The debut EP Hunter and Prey, was released in April 2017, and since then Ru has constantly been playing live, either as a solo act or with band. Currently she is working on her first full length album to be released in 2018
