Joining Anderson is local Latinx songwriter Jasper Bones with his romantic Chicano wavy-soul. For fans of Cuco, Chicano Batman and The Marias, Bones has been quick to rise, showcasing his vulnerabilities in delicate lyricism and drawing raw guitar riffs from jazz and blues.

Born out of passion, driven by non-traditional practices, The Brevet have gone from a DIY band from Orange County to performing live across the globe. While they’ll remind you of Kings of Leon, Mumford & Sons and Maroon 5, they’ve transformed their “epic Americana” to explosive, gritty rock fit with sophisticated lyrics and electrifying guitars. Touring in support of their most recent full-length release LEGS, singles “All You Need To Know” and “Locked And Loaded” have garnered attention from KROQ, reaching #1 on Kat Corbett’s Locals Only and featured on the first-ever KROQ Locals Only vinyl. Fueled by creating “FOMO for anyone that’s not paying attention,” get ready to be stopped in your tracks and leave craving more.

Local LA roots rockers BALTO relocated from Seattle just a couple years ago, but have already been winning over their unassuming crowds. Sharing tales of soul-searching and transformation, they’re the perfect soundtrack to those quiet and reflective moments on your best-friend-summer-road-trip up the coast or that lawn blanket cuddle over wine on The Bloc July 18.

A post shared by India Carney (@india_carney) on

Born and raised in New York, India Carney made her way to LA to study music at UCLA, but you’ll know her best from when she wowed all four judges on The Voice Season 8. A lifelong musician, Carney started learning music at the age of 2, singing in church and playing piano at home. Although classically trained, Carney’s voice is beautifully versatile, ranging from expertise in jazz to opera, gospel, musical theater and now with one-on-one training with Christina Aguilara under her belt, pop. Expect to hear her latest single “Ain’t No Sunshine” and maybe we’ll even get lucky with some live acapella she showcases on her Instagram!

Best known for her US Viral 50 Spotify Charts single “Dreamin’,” singer/songwriter Raelee Nikole is effortlessly visceral with a voice familiar enough to feel a sense of friendly comfort yet striking enough to stop you in your tracks. Hailing from San Diego, Nikole’s soulful grace is intoxicating and enchanting.
