Watsky
Watsky
San Francisco native George Watsky began his unconventional career as a Grand Slam Poetry champion whose clever, introspective rhymes were showcased on Russell Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam on HBO. His quirky persona, coupled with his uncanny ability to spit tongue-twisting lyrics at light-speed, earned him millions of YouTube hits and an invitation to perform on the Ellen show. After Watsky independently produced a self-titled album in 2009, both his 2013 album Cardboard Castles and his recent 2014 offering All You Can Do reached #1 on the iTunes hip hop charts, with the former peaking at #6 overall and the latter reaching #5. Watsky, performing with his live band Creme Fraiche, puts on a dynamic live performance that has earned him festival slots at San Francisco’s Outside Lands, Bumbershoot in Seattle, Rock the Bells, the Wireless Festival in London, and the 2014 Van’s Warped Tour, among many other stops in a young career that has already tallied nearly a thousand shows.

Anderson .Paak
Oxnard native Anderson .Paak, aka Breezy Lovejoy, is working his magic on the LA music scene as a drummer, producer, singer, and songwriter. On his debut EP Cover Art with the Free Nationals, Paak's "soul rebel" sound transforms alternative rock classics from beloved bands into completely funkier versions extracting every bit of soul, jazz, hip-hop, electronic funk, and R&B from these great tunes.
