ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Nick Hours combines his earnest and precise vocals with a lush palate of electronic and acoustic textures, thoughtful lyrics, soulful bass touches, and moments of ecstatic uplift to reach a sound between alternative R&B and folky electronica. Based in Oakland, he and his band met while studying classical music at UC Santa Cruz about ten years ago.
Katy Stephan‘s music is both sweet and salty, delicate and powerful. Her voice has been featured in major motion picture soundtracks, TV movies and theme songs, and even in children’s toys. She has created original music for theatre productions, modern dance, and circus.
