Jessie Winslow
Jessie Winslow
Named the “Best of Chicago in the Folk/Americana Category” by Deli Magazine, Jessie Winslow aims to take the torn up pieces of your heart, and slowly, but surely put them back together. For nearly a decade, Winslow has been performing, collaborating, and creating with artists across the Chicagoland area. She has presented work at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, Lincoln Hall + Schubas and The Hyde Park Art Center. Through her songwriting craft, Winslow creates minimalist sonic landscapes fit for sitting on the floor and listening with your entire being. Her debut EP, Bare, received critical acclaim notably by the Chicago Tribune who called it " astute, poignant piece of music..."

“Softly striking and laced with magic, listen to the beautiful music of Jessie Winslow; one of the best things we’ve heard so far this year.” -GoldFlakePaint

“I’ve never thought as minimalism as a team effort, but you can’t argue with results as gorgeous as these.” -Newcity
Ty Maxon
Ty Maxon
Ty Maxon is a songwriter and guitarist currently residing in Chicago. He has been featured on NPR's The Morning Shift as well as Daytrotter, who named Maxon's "I Will Die Tonight" one of the best songs of the year. Maxon's long-in-the-works new album "Rooms within Rooms" is due to be released later this year.

Last year’s Calling of the Crows—whose stripped-down instrumentation and backwoods, swampy folk give it moments of bare darkness—opens with its best track, so that I was sold right away. “To Theoda” is a frail yarn, with Ryan Suzuka’s harmonica weaving through guitar and banjo, and Maxon commands it totally, not only with his beautiful guitar melody but also with the way he holds on to his notes when he sings—it’s as though he’s trying to get you to gently cock your head and listen in.
