The Wind + The Wave
The Wind + The Wave
The Wind and The Wave consists of Dwight Baker (The Wind) and Patricia Lynn, (The Wave); best friends who employ the mantra "if it feels forced, fuck it."

After having retired as a touring musician in 2003, Baker came to find Lynn through the production of her previous project in Austin, Texas. After working together on several musical efforts, the two now describe themselves as being "cut from the same thread," and "rarely on different pages." This made it easy and essential for Baker and Lynn to begin writing and producing their own music, with a sound that satisfied their own ever-evolving creative spirits.

"All of our songs truly come from the heart," Lynn says. Baker and Lynn can dive head-first into serious conversation topics and quickly burst into laughter. "We try not to take anything too seriously," says Baker. "It's definitely work, but it's the best kind of work. There's no sense in doing it unless you're having fun."

Last year, The Wind + The Wave released their debut album From The Wreckage with RCA Records. The album glows with a rootsy golden tone that encompasses everything from indie- folk, to alt-country, to blues-rock to Southern psychedelia. Baker and Lynn have just released their second single, "It's a Longer Road To California Than I Thought".
Allison Pierce
Allison Pierce
Allison Pierce was born in Birmingham, Alabama to a family of creative individuals. In their teens, Allison and sister Catherine formed the acclaimed duo The Pierces who released four full-length albums, most recently on Polydor/Universal. In 2007 Rolling Stone magazine named the sisters as a Breaking Artist to watch. The duo's songs have been placed in various network TV shows including the song "Secret" which has been the theme song for the HBO show Pretty Little Liars for the run of the show. In live performance the sisters have toured as the supporting act for Coldplay and Lissie among others. Allison Pierce now steps into the spotlight as a solo artist.
Haley Johnsen
Haley Johnsen
Even in the cluttered field of blues-inspired sirens, Haley Johnsen is not to be mistaken as just another one of the girls. A native Portlander and daughter of a drummer, Haley's sound draws out the emotions of each note with impressive range, while her songwriting provides a candid glimpse at the joys and pains of young life. Her first EP, "Through the Blue," is a playfully mastered farewell to lost love and youthful trysts brought further to life with her full band. Haley leads her versatile rock ensemble with ease through a mixture of anthemic and melancholic original works. She and her band are set to head out for a mini tour through California in early January.
