Julia Gail + Bear in the Forest + Pherow IX
MPLS born songstress (and former crescendo employee) Julia Gail comes from a musical upbringing. With two musicians for parents, her style draws from her dads bluesy, folky roots and her moms classical training and love for jazz. Combine that with her own love of R&B and you get Julias own voice and writing style. Julia is joined tonight by her multi-instrumentalist brother a Jon Porter (MPLS) and Christian Porter (MKE) to bring some smooth, laid back, alternative R&B vibes to Crescendo.

Rapper, poet, and activist through the arts.
Born out of Douglasville Georgia, I grew up in a city where my individuality drove me to different wisdoms and insights to that my peers. In this knowledge I come here to Wisconsin on scholarship to grow into the individual I was meant to be; an individual
who spreads this knowledge through the being and the music. Live, speak, and be without fear.
