Low Leaf

Low Leaf's music doesn't belong to any specific place or point in time. It doesn't fall under a strictly defined genre. She's trained in piano and self-taught in the harp. She plays with electronics, producing beats that can drive soothing melodies. Her voice often bears a jazz influence, but, on some songs, it's layered with other sounds to appear as if it's a not-quite human texture.

Aloe Blacc

Singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc performs new music and a cover of Joni Mitchell's 1970 classic "Big Yellow Taxi," a fitting union for a contemporary pop artist who is also an activist for various different causes.

Buyepongo

Buyepongo is an L.A.-based outfit that makes music in the style they have called "buyangú." It's a mix of rhythms and textures influenced by L.A. and the Modesto's travels to Latin America.  Crucial to Buyepongo's origin story is a trip that Modesto made to Central America after the band temporarily folded in 2010. During his time abroad, Modesto found inspiration in Garifuna culture. 

Milck

Cathartic pop artist MILCK performs an intimate set which includes her viral song “Quiet,” which provided a post-election call for people of all races, creeds, and colors who have suffered and survived gallantly in the face of trauma, trials, and tribulations with resounding piano chords and shuddering, soulful delivery.

Rodrigo Amarante

Once the frontman for Brazil’s popular rock group Los Hermanos, troubadour Rodrigo Amarante performs a stripped-down, solo set of his ballads on Studio A. When Amarante relocated to Los Angeles, he started the indie rock act Little Joy with the Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti, but his recent debut solo record reveals pensive and heartfelt songs inflected with subtle bossa nova vibes.
