Nassau is a collaborative recording project from Brooklyn-based songwriters Justin Wilcox and Jeffrey Silverstein. Both seeking new creative outlets following respective projects in Baltimore and Chattanooga, the duo formed out of a mutual respect for raw, honest music. Sitting on a handful of riffs and half-songs, together the material actualized. Late 2015 was spent demoing and laying groundwork for Hoss, their forthcoming and debut EP. While a distinct sound continues to flourish, initial psych/folk offerings are rooted in interweaving guitar lines, ambient textures and Wilcox’s tranquil vocal delivery.

Louis Weeks is DC-based electro/acoustic artist. His debut album shift/away arrived in early 2014 and was named by Washington City Paper, DC Music Download and other local media outlets as one of the best local releases of the year. His songs consist of tightly constructed arrangements - a balance of acoustic and electronic soundscapes - and soulful and unique melodies.

Keeper started as the bedroom recording project of Marissa Lorusso. After the self-release of an EP called Fawn, she was joined by Matt Lewicki on synth and Sam Piercy on guitar. Since then, they have played in the DC area with bands like Eskimeaux, Horse Jumper of Love, and Florist.
