Jess Robbins
Jess Robbins
Jess Robbins wrote her first song when she was eight years old about the distant and mysterious planet, Saturn. Today her songs focus the same sense of wonderment and reverie on subjects a little closer to the heart. Her natural, flowing sense of phrasing and meter belies the hours of hard work spent honing her craft. In 2010 Jessica released her first album "Dear Fred" to positive reviews, and she has continued to play all over her native Chicago. In 2012 she released her EP, “Habitat” and released a new full length album "Lightfield" in June 2018. Time Out Chicago called Jessica a promising new artist and wrote that her “smart songs veer toward the folkier end of the rock spectrum but often recall the bite of Aimee Mann”. Her new record, Lightfield, could easily be called 'dream folk' and has more of an ambient alternative sound which explores the mysterious and daunting side of life. She also played guitar for eight years with the legendary all-female improv group, Virgin Daiquiri- seen at Second City and IO Theater. Jess truly enjoys the wild, electric combination of inspiration, spontaneity, and music.
Burr Oak
Burr Oak
Chicago based singer-songwriter Burr Oak (Savanna Dickhut) merges together folky, story driven tunes with dreamy indie-pop hooks and vocals to create her own, unique blend of sounds. Breaking away from her solo work to form duo-fronted band Elk Walking with Julian Daniell in 2015, she has yet to record or release any of her music apart from the group but will play a set of her unreleased material on occasion, at select venues around the city. Marinating on these songs for sometime now and still developing her solo sound, she hopes to release them at some point in the not so distant future. For the time being, check out a rough, self-recorded demo on her soundcloud; “sweet thing demo” as well as the new Elk Walking single, “Molly,” available on all streaming platforms.
