Jamie Barnes’ strengths lie in simple, hooky, lo-fi gems. His delivery is beautifully understated and even optimistic as he sings poignant autumnal folk songs that recall failed attempts at unrealistic plans.
With a strong aptitude for learning instruments by ear, he includes a wide variety of small household instruments like toy piano, xylophone, flute, tabla, and glockenspiel in his bedroom recordings, but generally builds his songs around his soothing voice and a lone acoustic guitar.

As the daughter of a worship pastor, Kristen Gilles became involved in music ministry at a young age, and now writes and sings songs that cover the whole, big story of God’s grace. Accomplished as a vocalist, pianist, guitarist and songwriter, she has led worship in various churches and conferences, toured the United States from New York City to Dallas, Texas and many points in between.
“Some musicians do what they do for fame. Some do it for fortune. Some do it simply for the love of the craft. But Kristen does it out of her passionate love for her Savior, and it shows! Just listening to her amazing vocals and deep, personal lyrics, you simply can’t help falling more in love with the Jesus she brings to life through song.”

Certain things in life — music, a great book, family, etc. — can be vehicles that transport you to an entirely different place. The folk-pop-soul of Dave Moisan is like that. This is “head/heart” music that will make you think and compel you to dance. No wonder Dave’s music has been featured on ESPN and in Hollister stores, as well as being a favorite in Louisville’s music scene.
