Born in New York City and currently residing in South Florida, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter emmanuelle sasson asked her father if she could take guitar lessons when she was just 6. When he said yes, emmanuelle practiced for hours upon hours until “I had to dip my fingers in ice water because they burned so much.” emmanuelle was seven when she started singing and became a young songwriter by the age of fourteen. True to her adventurous form, emmanuelle went on to teach herself how to play piano, drums, bass, and ukulele.” As for her songwriting, emmanuelle turns every day challenges and pain into her inspiration. “Every time something not-so-great happens in life, I just think to myself, ‘It’s okay, I’ll write a song about it.’ Songwriting is my therapy. It helps me release any emotions I don’t know how to express just by speaking. That’s why my songs are so dark. It’s the side of myself that I don’t often show to other people. I'm an open book, but I don’t let everyone read the chapters.” emmanuelle recently graduated high school and released her debut album smoke&mirrors on April 19th, 2019. In turn, emmanuelle has managed to create a musical style and message that, while evoking many of today’s top performers, stands on its own as uniquely powerfully and emotionally resonant. emmanuelle performed at the NBA Halftime Show at American Airlines Arena's Xfinity East Plaza in Miami on January 23rd, 2019, as well as numerous shows for South by Southwest in March of 2019. She released a lyric video for her latest single, note to self, which accumulated over 35,000 streams on Spotify, and also went on her first tour as an opening act for Stephen Kellogg and Tyrone Wells in August of 2019. emmanuelle is constantly playing shows across the country, spreading the important messages of her music worldwide. The young artist is currently working on new music, which is planned to be released early next year.

Dante Mazzetti began his music career with the release of his self-titled debut album. After exploring the genre of Americana and indie-folk, Mazzetti experimented with his sound by releasing his rock album, Lost and Drifting. This album showed off his ability to capture different genres through his songwriting. In 2007, music took a backseat when he decided to join the New York Fire Department. The FDNY awarded Mazzetti the prestigious Emily Trevor/Mary B. Warren Medal in recognition of his heroic actions rescuing an elderly female from a deadly fire. Mazzetti's new EP Hotel Vol. 2 was released on November 22nd and was received with rave reviews. Keep Walking wrote, "For fans of rock music, you're looking at the next big thing." Through 4 new original tracks, Dante Mazzetti tackles a darker tone, infusing his sound with somber vocals and bluesy undertones. A portion of the proceeds from Hotel Vol. 2 will go to First Responders Children’s Foundation which supports the children of first responders (such as firefighters and police officers) who have died in the line of action. Being an FDNY firefighter himself, this charity is very near to Mazzetti’s heart.
