About Kevin Garrett
Combining classic soul with modern electronics, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Kevin Garrett released his debut EP Mellow Drama in 2015 to wide praise, earning the support of heavyweights like Beyoncé, Sam Smith, and Katy Perry. Garrett went on to co-write and co-produce the critically acclaimed song "Pray You Catch Me" from Beyoncé's sixth studio album, Lemonade. After recently performing at a host of festivals this year including Made in America and Sasquatch, the Pittsburgh-born songsmith is currently in the midst of a two-month-long tour of the US and Europe supporting Oh Wonder and James Vincent McMorrow. His latest single, "Precious", has already garnered acclaim since its release at the end of September.
Raised in a suburb just outside Detroit, Roc Nation artist Mayaeni—pronounced mah-yay-knee—was actually born to rock. Hanging out with her musician dad in the studio was Mayaeni's form of grooming, with Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan and Hendrix records serving as both musical surrogates and soundtracks to her life. The instrumentally rich and electric songs she creates now are extensions of her rocker past. Her earliest material was recorded on her dad's 8-track tapes. Since dropping her EP Elocution this summer, her sound has reached an even wider audience hungry for a new take on the classic sounds of rock and soul. She recently completed a national tour run, opening for acts such as Citizen Cope, Corinne Bailey Rae, KT Tunstall and Macy Gray.
