From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings, Allen Stone emerges to share personal melodies, telling his tales of life after just 23 years. Getting his start singing at his father's church in small-town America, it wasn't until later when introduced to the greats of soul music (Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin) and then to the confessional lyrical fashion of the '60s – '70s singer/songwriters, did music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home. Stone's music is notable for his finely crafted evocative songs and fresh, smooth, soul-filled voice that certainly belies his age.

Otis Heat is an alterna-funk rock trio from Portland, Ore., that began as the result of a near-fatal car crash in 2008 between singer-songwriter Sean O'Neill and drummer Adam Lucas in one car, and guitarist Mike Warner in the other. An elusive drifter named Otis Heat rescued the semi-conscious men from their hazardous cars and called for help. Post-crash, the individuals discussed music while lying in hospital beds. After leaving the hospital, O'Neill began playing bass for the band. Lucas departed and new drummer Scotty Gervais joined, bringing a high-octane punch to the group.

The unlikely pairing of producer TommyD and singer/songwriter Jamie Scott began as an experiment neither thought would work and has grown into a pop project so refreshingly rule-free, a sense of adventure seeps from every song. Try to categorize Graffiti6 and you're in trouble. You'll certainly spot vintage soul influences, the pair's shared love of Hendrix, folk and funk. You'll hear house and hip hop beats destined to fill dance floors. At the heart of the songs are pop melodies you could sit down with a guitar and strum. But Graffiti6 doesn't make music to be analyzed. From the moment they named their band, the pair's main aim has been to have fun.
