Artists

LYNX

Lynx, is an innovative singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, beat-boxer and producer originally from Colorado who now calls Portland OR home. At 30, she has been breaking new ground in both the live and electronic music scenes playing events all over the world including the US, Asia, Europe and Canada. Performance highlights include appearances at Coachella, Austin City Limits festival, Boom festival, collaborations with Beats Antique, Beat Boxing with Matisyahu and a recent slot as direct support for Alanis Morissette. Lynx's music combines elements from multiple genres including electronica, folk, and indie rock. Her music intertwines powerful vocals, lyrics that are both universal and intimate, timely and timeless, and sounds that switch from folky to cutting edge with bumping beats that melt to raw, melancholy melodies and resolve with infectious pop hooks. Her latest solo album LIGHT UP YOUR LANTERN is now available on GYPSYPOP records worldwide.

Sol Rising

Sol Rising's original soundscapes evoke feelings of bliss throughout an eclectic mix of hip-hop, funk, soul, reggae, and electronic dance beats.

Born in Vancouver BC, Brandon began meditating at age four with a walking mantra technique. His mother took him to visit numerous spiritual teachers, who inspired him on the spiritual path he walks today. As a teenager, he became a hip hop fanatic. His rooted interest in hip hop led him to learning the art of scratching — using turntables as musical instruments. Sol Rising soon became one of America’s top scratch DJs, winning second place at the DMC, the world’s most prestigious DJ competition. After graduating in the top 5% of his accounting class at University of Iowa, he realized accounting was not his path. A journey to India illuminated his true calling — to light up people’s awareness of their true nature through music. This lead him to study audio engineering and production at Pyramind Studios in San Francisco and produce his first album, "I AM Soul."

Kid Beyond

Kid Beyond is a vocalist, songwriter, and producer. His pioneering live-looping work — multitracking his singing and beatboxing to create his own live backing tracks — has riveted hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world. He’s rocked festivals such as Coachella, SXSW, Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis, Wakarusa, Langerado, Treasure Island, Burning Man, Ottawa Bluesfest, w00tstock, QuakeCon, and many more.
