Twin Ghost (http://www.twinghost.com/)
Born in The City Of Brotherly Love, this burgeoning songwriter spent his formative years playing everything from punk and progressive rock to reggae, funk and soul, all the while holding dear his childhood influences;
great singers and songwriters like Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Neil Young, James Taylor, Gil Scot Heron and Marvin Gaye among others; shaping his style, while producing copious amounts of original material, and developing his own unique voice. The emergent style is a distillation of rootsy soulful rock with pop brilliance, embodied in the artist of today: Twin Ghost.

Beth Goldwater (http://www.reverbnation.com/bethgoldwater)
Beth started songwriting during her stint as a landscaper after singing every song she'd ever heard and realized it was only 2 in the afternoon. She joined an original band where she opened for acts as diverse as the Black Crowes, where she learned the amount of smoke one tour bus can hold, and Cinderella which proved you can never have too many neck scarves. She also sang in a few cover bands that played in the tri-state area before taking a break to start a family. Recently Beth picked up guitar and got back to songwriting, and is truly honored to be out on the scene again, not just because she gets a night free of the kids, who of course, she loves very much... most of the time ;) She is currently recording an album due out in early 2012.
Brooks Long (http://www.reverbnation.com/brookslong)
Brooks Long didn't grow up on the rough streets of Baltimore, but did grow up in a house on the rough streets of Baltimore. "Like a lot of kids, I wasn't involved in anything, but I saw enough. It got me thinking deep thoughts pretty early." Attracted to a wide range of music from an early age and spending much of his youth in various gospel choirs, including one that found him on stage backing up Shania Twain, he grew to become a singer/songwriter, guitarist, poet, and voracious classic R&B/Rock & Roll nerd. As a solo act, Brooks has opened for established indie artists such as Elizabeth and The Catapult, 2-time Grammy Nominee Karter Jaymes and Kentavius Jones.
Jessica Latshaw (http://www.reverbnation.com/thepaperjanes)
Jessica Latshaw is one half of The Paper Janes. Jessica is a dancer who loves music or maybe a musician who loves dancing, she hasn't quite figured it out yet. The Paper Janes create a mix of musical styles that is unique and wonderful. Shane Palko, her partner, also performs solo from time to time. He and Jessica create very different music in their solo acts that gives an insight to the listener of how The Paper Janes create such interesting and beautiful music.
