Susto: Susto is an American indie rock band from Charleston, South Carolina. Liz Cooper & The Stampede: Growing up in Baltimore, Maryland, Liz Cooper always dreamed of being a singer-songwriter/musician, but from a young age, everyone was convinced she was going to be a professional golfer. Golf was just a hobby for her though, music had always been a passion. It was something that she only pondered and dreamed of until her senior year of high school where she decided to pursue music as a career and make her dream a reality. Leaving behind her friends, family and college golf scholarship, Liz Cooper packed her things and moved to Nashville, TN. After wandering around town for the first few months getting to know the local music scene, she eventually found her niche at Nashville Music House Recording Studio. Not only is this where her first EP "Monsters" was recorded and mixed, but also where she met a group of friends to begin The Stampede in 2014. Dawg Yawp: Dawg Yawp is a folk-based duo that combines sitar, guitar, synth and drum samples alongside beautiful harmonies. Tyler Randall and Rob Keenan are lifelong friends that attended Berklee together, only to return to their native Cincinnati to focus on the project. Their debut EP Two Hearted quickly earned them acclaim and radio play, addition to several festivals and national support slots. Their debut self-titled LP released 10/14/16 via Old Flame Records, has started generating national praise from NPR to WXPN, Consequence of Sound and beyond.
