JP Saxe - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
JP Saxe
In each of his songs, Toronto-bred singer/songwriter JP Saxe hones in on the small moments to spark a quietly deepening shift in emotion.

With his latest single "Anybody Else," Saxe shows us his carnal side with sensual lyrics and a kaleidoscope of blurry synth lines and cascading guitar tones. Prior to this, his first single "Changed" debuted his soulful vocals with sparse beats and luminous piano work. The song channels both anger and affection in its gently devastating lyrics.

The LA-based Saxe shapes his R&B-leaning sound with elegant musicality and purposeful inventiveness. His forthcoming debut EP is both formally defiant and meticulously composed. Whether he’s reflecting on unbearable desperation, the chaos of a tempestuous romance (“Screaming to Myself”), or the lovely thrill of surrender to longing (“The Few Things”), each track embodies a deliberate vulnerability.
Beck Pete - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

“In a world where strength is encouraged, and expression of feeling has been painted as the opposite of strength, I’m over here arguing that one cannot exist without the other,” says Beck when approached with questions of why art is important to her. Beck feels that we when we can embrace the truths of love and emotion, and the fact that feeling feelings is, in reality, pretty damn cool, we will be better off as a society. What better way to facilitate this shift in societal mindset, than to write heart-wrenching songs about truth in the world?

So, through the combination of emotional turmoil, heartbreak, a whole bunch of nights consisting of dance-inducing backbeats, deafening silence, and true elation, Beck Pete was born. If you follow the intricate, hook-y melodies and production of the indie-pop genre, until you find where they intersect with the emotional vulnerability, intensity and desperation of soul music, you will find Beck. She will be looking you right in the eyeballs, telling you every inch of her truth.

After less than two years in Los Angeles, Beck has spilled her heart for an increasing number of eyeballs, playing and selling out historic venues across the city, including The Hotel Café which has become a second home for the artist.

Beck's debut single “Lonely” will be released through AWAL on March 16, and she will only continue releasing music that showcases sides of love and the human condition that others often avoid.
Madison Malone - (Set time: 8:00 PM)

Madison Malone is stepping out of her artistic shell to release songs that use the light to recognize the dark. Her new music is the beauty created beneath the destruction.
Kyler Slater - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Kyler Slater
Californian singer and multi-instrumentalist Kyler Slater is pushing R&B to new places by mixing melancholy indie-vibes with that sound so familiar to us from the likes of The Weeknd. Playing since a young age, Kyler originally favored a conventional band set-up and guitar based melodies, but his sound progressed when he struck out on his own at the age of 15 – his varied and sometimes dark life experiences have played an important role in the evolution of his unique and deeply personal style of music.
