A typical musician wouldn't travel across the country by hopping freight trains or playing shows inside fans' living rooms throughout North America and Europe after selling out arenas like Madison Square Garden (for three consecutive nights), but Chadwick Stokes is anything but your typical musician.

Since forming his first band with two college friends in 1996, Chadwick Stokes has paved a path of independence, advocacy and social consciousness that's impacted every aspect of his artistic life. In addition to fronting the bands State Radio and Dispatch, Stokes is also a co-founder of Calling All Crows, a non-profit dedicated to bringing bands and fans together to create change through hands-on activism and service. Calling All Crows has raised over $250,000 and invested more than 20,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.

Stokes is currently in the studio with Sam Beam of Iron and Wine and producer Brian Deck (Modest Mouse, Gomez, Iron and Wine) working on the followup to his 2011 solo album Simmerkane II. The album is slated for release in late 2014.
Ryan Harvey
"With the unplugged story-telling of traditional American folk music, the compassionate alarm of early punk, and the lyrical punch of modern hiphop, Ryan Harvey's belongs to the 'new' genre often referred to as "riot-folk.

Having performed in the epicenters of revolutions and uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia, Greece, France, Iceland, and his native Baltimore, Ryan brings the energy and urgency of of these movements to the stage.

In 2015, Ryan co-founded Firebrand Records with Tom Morello (Prophets of Rage, Rage Against the Machine) to provide a platform for radical artists."
