Being Grown is the debut release for Southern Maryland singer-songwriter George Adamson. Drawing influence from folk, laid-back indie rock, and 70s pop, Adamson writes songs that feel both familiar and refreshing; brimming with warm acoustic guitars, gentle pianos, and good-natured lyrics, they come from a place of honest expression.
 
Written and recorded mostly at his home during his last year of college, Being Grown is a product of both excitement and uncertainty. The six track EP, full of thematic elements revolving around growing up, embodies that constant flux we feel of having nothing and everything figured out. It peers into a special time in our lives, one of growth through self discovery, learning to love, and accepting things about ourselves that just can’t be changed.

Brent From School is a self-made Baltimore musician and producer who specializes in creating laid back, bedroom pop music with influences from hip-hop/rnb.

bruce take nap is a psychedelic indie band formed in College Park, MD. drawing influences from the likes of HOMESHAKE and Pink Floyd, along with songwriters like Paul Simon, bruce take nap mixes psychedelic rock elements with indie pop, sprinkling in a bit of jazz and R&B to round it all out. What started off as the solo recording project of Bryce Watson, a 21-year-old UMD student, has turned into a sensational live band with a unique sound that everyone has their own way of describing. Some like to point out 70s rock influence, while others like to point to a more modern indie rock sound, and others still point to a heavy jazz influence. While Watson still produces and plays the instruments on virtually all of the recorded material, the band plans on recording a studio album this summer to be released in the fall.

His new EP, Greetings From The Crystal Kingdom, is his biggest synth endeavor yet, filled with textures, rhythms, and vibrant melodies transporting you through the forsaken land of Crystal.
