Pedro Capó, one of Puerto Rico's most beloved singer/songwriters, returns with his new studio album, En Letra De Otro. Capó has an inherent great love for music. Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, he lived a life of bohemian inspirations. Grandson of the brilliant Puerto Rican singer/songwriter Bobby Capó, renown melodist and singer of the 1940's, and son of the unforgettable singer and cultivator of the trova and salsa Bobby Capó, this young singer/songwriter is the third-generation member of a family tradition that has left its stamp in Latin music.
Capó picked up the guitar at an early age and quickly demonstrated great virtue with the strings, even becoming the main voice of the group Marka Registrada in the 1990s. Striking out as a solo artist in 2007, Capo has release four solo albums, the second of which, Capo, produced six of his seven #1 singles on the Puerto Rican charts, culminating in three consecutive, sold out concerts in a single weekend at the Teatro de Museo de Arte. Capo is a multi-GRAMMY nominee, a 2013 ASCAP Award winner for album Fiebre de Amor, and has written songs for award-winning artists Ricky Martin, Ednita Nazario, and Noel Schajris.

Equal parts fast-paced and soulful, 5-piece modern-folk Americana act, The Way Down Wanderers, draw listeners in with energy, originality and soulful generosity. The Wanderers have built an enthusiastic and fast-growing following. Youthful and professionally trained, these young men captivate audiences with soaring instrumentals, foot stomping sing-alongs and a lively stage show, and have created a buzz for themselves with their unplugged, off-stage encores and propensity for performing self-titled, "restSTOMPS" - free acoustic sets at rest & truck stops along their tour routes. The band's debut, self-titled album, produced by Mike Marsh of the Avett Brothers and recorded at Sonic Ranch in El Paso TX, is now available.

Davina and the Vagabonds have grown from a down-and-dirty blues band into an acoustic ensemble on the international stage. In recent years they have performed in 45 states, 2 Canadian provinces and 12 European countries. With influences ranging from Fats Domino and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band to Aretha Franklin and Tom Waits, the band draws from the last 100 years of American music. Davina has been compared to Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday and Betty Boop. Davina and the Vagabonds' latest record, Nicollet and 10th, was recorded over two nights in early 2015 at the Dakota in Minneapolis-Saint Paul.

Listening to his intricate arrangements is one thing but seeing the fan-dubbed "Acoustic Ninja" play live confounds even the most accomplished music lovers as to how one person can do all that with just two hands and ten fingers. Bundy's unique career has brought him across the world, with sold-out concerts in 28 countries and counting while selling over 130,000 albums on his record label, Honest Ninja Music.
20 years old, fingerstyle guitarist Sungha Jung developed an interest in guitar after watching his father play. After learning the basics from his father, Jung developed his skill greatly just by trying to play what he heard by watching online videos. Jung came to play fingerstyle when his father discovered the technique on the internet. Soon after his first debut video on the internet, he garnered many supporters, from whom he asked for advice on his playing. His cover of "The Pirates of the Caribbean" theme song, which currently has over 55 million views on YouTube, made Jung an internet sensation, and his playing caught the attention of world-renowned guitarists who found his covers of their songs impressive. Jung has received guitar lessons from Hata Shuji, a well-known Japanese jazz guitarist. He has also been mentored by German guitarist Ulli Bögershausen, who Jung has referred to as his musical inspiration, and from whom he learned much about composing and arranging.
