THE ARTISTS:
Trey Priest - Blues. Rock. Hip-hop. This might be Trey at the core, but there’s always more. Influenced by all styles of music, the 29 year old MC/Guitarist from Detroit actively performs as a solo artist and lead guitarist with fellow Detroit bands ONEFREQ and The NLR Experience. His talents have granted him the opportunity to open up for world-renowned artists Erykah Badu, Gregory Porter, Hiatus Kaiyote and many more.

Trey became very passionate about hip-hop at the age of 12. By day, he developed his craft by freestyling and battle rapping at school and the bus stop. By night, he wrote rhymes with more focus, allowing him to grow as an adaptable MC. It wasn't until 2009 that he began his journey on guitar. He has since then combined his instrumental flair with his ability as a lyricist, giving an alternative idea of what the typical "frontman" is. Trey continues to perform throughout Detroit and is currently recording new music to be released in 2019.

Dani Darling - Some people are what we call, "old souls". They have a touch of nostalgia or grace that runs deep. You can feel this phenomenon in the words and vocals of Dani Darling; a jazzy chanteuse from Ann Arbor, MI with an experimental lo-fi sound that is intimate and poetic. Her influences are Billie Holiday, Old Hollywood movie scores, love, and the Universe - but this singer/songwriter's goal isn't to take you back in time; its to bring you into her whimsical world where time is like an old tune made new. She has worked as a collaborating artist with The Black Opera as "SoulGalaxyGirl", and is Current Magazine's "Artist to Watch in 2019". She performs with her band "the Dreamers", and has just released her first official single and video "2:22" to critical acclaim from Nylon Magazine, and The Singers Room. "2:22" was also selected for screening at the A2 Tech Film Festival January 2019. Darling's next release "nocturnes." is a lo-fi dream sequence EP, and will be releasing Spring/Summer 2019.
