Haddon Cord: Raised on Roots Rock, Pop, and Americana, Haddon Cord is an award-winning Singer/Songwriter. Mentored by the legendary T Bone Burnett and celebrated composer John Frizzell, Haddon won the public vote for the 2018 Unsigned Only International Songwriting Competition for her single “Million Songs”. She recently performed the main title on the CBS drama “Tell Me A Story,” starring Kim Cattrall (of Sex and the City acclaim). Haddon has appeared on stages around the world, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The London Troubadour, London Folkfest, The Bedford, Live@Sunset Marquis, The Fox Theater, The Lobero Theater, The Fresno County Fair, Santa Barbara Fiesta, Hard Rock L.A., and more. She has opened for artists Gary Allen, Don McClean, and Wilson Phillips, and supported Eric Hutchinson on his national “Anyone Who Knows Me” tour.

Daring Greatly: Formed in the sunny eastern foothills of Canada's Rocky Mountains, Daring Greatly combines their harmony-rich, rock n' roll with U.S Folk, Americana traditions from the '60s and '70s. They are best known for their mesmerizing family (blood) harmonies provided by two brothers, Patrick and Liam Croome. In 2015, the band leaped forward with best friend and drummer Brayden Tario from Calgary, Alberta, and moved to Southern California. Since then, the band paved their path with hours of experience performing over 1,000 shows across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The band can offer various arrangements in performances, scaling to coffee-shop, Folk/Americana acoustic sets to full sounding 7-piece Jam/Rock sets that will fill a large concert hall or theatre. They have been steadily growing a stunning catalog of soul-full original songs with two full-length albums, 'Cornerstones' (2016) and 'Works of Art' (2017), and their latest, 6-song EP 'Give Myself to the World' (2021). Their albums are filled with honest lyrics encompassed by deep and introspective messages about courage, vulnerability, and personal freedom, all of which are at the forefront of the bands' core values to lead a life that serves a purpose greater than ones-self.
