MIWA GEMINI (Japan)
“I have been playing music ever since I can remember. Growing up in a small town in Japan I always dreamed of living and singing in New York City, like Billie Holiday. I’ve been enchanted with her music since I was little. I’ve been lucky enough to be compared to many musicians that I admire including Nina Simone and Bjork. I have traveled all over the United States and Canada, sometimes by myself and sometimes with my band. My band is wonderfully colorful with a unique casts, but since 2012, Rebekah has been an integral part of my creative process and performances. Rebekah and I met playing with the Main Squeeze Orchestra, an all female accordion orchestra.
Lys Guillorn is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based in Shelton, Connecticut. She is of the same musical school as Laura Veirs, and Kristin Hersh, with a little Emmylou Harris thrown in: dreamy, lyric-driven, melodically interesting, and undefinable. She calls her genre of music "Avant-Twang."
Lys Guillorn’s recent sound is best described as “Nancy Sinatra on a grunge bender.” The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Shelton, Connecticut is a stylistic shape-shifter, dipping her blue cowgirl boots in folk and psych-rock. She has two full-length studio records of original material, an oddities collection, and a couple of EPs on her own label Little Cowgirl Records.
