Recipient of the 2016 Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Rock Songwriter, Carolyn Striho made her name fronting the dynamic Detroit Energy Asylum and worked with the priestess of punk, Patti Smith. Wildly original, melodic and passionate, All-Music Guide describes Striho's songs as being written «from the silver edge of midnight.» Speaking of edge, Striho has gained a strong reputation for charismatic, high-energy stage performances. Gary McFarland of the National Rock Review writes, “The eclectic, alternative sound, contains elements of Carolyn’s long history in the Detroit Punk, Alternative, Folk, and Avant Garde scene. Carolyn’s performances seduce the audience and engages them with her genuine emotion bringing all of us along for a wild ride.” Expect songs from her latest release «Afterthought,» which was on the Grammy Awards First Ballot 2018 and showcases her edge and depth as a songwriter.

Recipient of the 2016 Detroit Music Awards for Outstanding Americana Songwriter, Mary McGuire has a myriad of influences and growing up in 70's Detroit and getting schooled by the jocks at America's first underground radio stations had a major influence on her early musical education. Matt Harmon of the Detroit Metro Times shares «she seemingly shifts genres at will….» chalk that up to being an avid listener, studying music while living, writing, recording and performing across America. Joe Montague of Riveting Riffs Magazine writes, “Michigan singer-songwriter and musician Mary McGuire may be one of the most underappreciated, yet most gifted artists in America today." Her evolution as a songwriter came from the rock influences in industrial Detroit, gentler folk influences from the shores of Martha's Vineyard and the country rhythm of the horses clipping along on the car-free streets of Mackinac Island, absorbing all of this is what influences her and defines her characteristic songwriting style. Expect a glimpse of these very influences gleaned from the Upper Midwest to the East Coast and back in this listening room.
