About Run River North – The Los Angeles-based, indie outfit Run River North released sophomore album Drinking From A Salt Pond last year landing at #6 on the Billboard Heatseekers’ chart and #3 on the Alternative New Artist Albums’ chart. Produced by Lars Stalfors (Cold War Kids, Deap Vally, HEALTH, Matt and Kim), the band performed first single “Run Or Hide” for NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers and MTV’s Wonderland and landed Top 30 on the Alternative Radio chart. Watch “29” HERE.
About Linying – The Singaporean singer gained recognition as the voice behind some major EDM hits from European producers, leading to a #1 on Hype Machine and over 10 million plays on Spotify. She released her own debut single “Sticky Leaves” early last year, landing on Spotify’s viral charts globally. She was named a Spotify Spotlight On 2016 Artist, with Billboard writing, “As the track builds slowly from a piano-driven ballad to its quicker-paced electronic climax, Linying’s voice remains the focal point, soaring higher and higher.” She followed that with “Alpine,” which was featured on NPR’s All Songs Considered, with NPR Music’s Bob Boilen commenting, “those electronic textures and that gorgeous voice are just a perfect match.” UK’s The Metro recently named her as an artist to watch in 2017 too. With her debut EP, Paris 12 (out now), Linying is ready to further showcase her brand of moving lyricism and vivid music productions in songs that reveal a stark emotion perspective through elements of electronica, baroque pop, folk and alt-rock SXSW will be her U.S. debut besides a few warm up shows (Sofar, Standard Hotel) leading up to it.
About SHAED – An indie-pop trio comprised of multi-instrumentalist twin brothers Max and Spencer Ernst and powerhouse vocalist Chelsea Lee. Lee’s vocals weave divinely through the Ernst twins’ pop-sensible production that can make anyone move. Their debut single, “Just Wanna See,” is a genre bending slow jam that has received international praise and favorable comparisons to bands like Florence & The Machine, Sia, Justin Timberlake, and Sylvan Esso.
