Seraphic vocals bookended by ukulele, cello & heavy percussion will leave you feeling giddy & glad to be alive." -The Stranger
Erisy Watt
Erisy Watt
With honey sweet vocals and a soft hum that speaks to an older time, Erisy Watt has cultivated a balance of contemporary folk and sultry soul that brings on an air of ease and simplicity. A subtlety of southern charm, Watt’s vocals pay homage to her upbringing in Nashville, TN yet her lyrics very much reflect the connection she’s made with the Golden State. She is equal parts musician, outdoor explorer, and sunset enthusiast who finds a bottle of red wine, a guitar, and a spot in the sand as the ideal venue.
Jamey Geston
Jamey Geston
An independent artist from Santa Barbara, CA, JAMEY GESTON isn't one to be defined. She's a performer, multi-instrumentalist, and a songwriter. As far as genre is concerned, it’s best to listen and form your own opinion, however, if you listen you may hear traces of dream-pop, indie rock, and folk. “I started playing guitar around ten, then self-taught piano, ukulele, and bass; at eleven I started songwriting." Jamey explains her passion, "What keeps me making music is my ongoing enjoyment for it. I like listening to other artists and being inspired by little aspects of a song and creating and thinking of new things I can do with it. Also, seeing female musicians who are pushing the boundaries and doing so much for themselves is awesome to see. It motivates me so much." Influenced by artists like Elliott Smith, Mitski, Nick Drake, The Velvet Underground, and Angel Olsen, she strives "to write songs and make music that paints a picture and sends a message in unconventional ways".

Jamey’s accomplishments include opening for the Award-winning folk singer, Judy Collins, Legendary musician, Peter Frampton, Grammy-winning guitarist, Albert Lee, ‘First Lady of Woodstock’-Melanie Safka, FOX’s American Idol Runner Up, Crystal Bowersox, and NBC’s The Voice Finalist, Will Champlin. She was selected four straight years (‘13-’16) to perform at The NAMM Show in Anaheim. Jamey has toured throughout California, Colorado, Arizona, Louisiana, North Dakota, Minnesota and played top music venues and festivals throughout Southern California.

She is a visual artist, something she sees coinciding with her music. She designs and creates her own merchandise.

Jamey is a member of ASCAP, Durango Songwriters, and is endorsed by Daisy Rock Guitars, Steve Clayton Guitars Picks, Capturing Couture Guitar Straps and Shubb Capos.
