Sug Daniels
Sug Daniels is a
Philadelphia-based singer, songwriter, and producer who is using the tools around her to capture the emotions of an era. Daniels’ work is as colorful, vulnerable, and charismatic as her personality. She thoughtfully combines elements of folk, R&B, and low-fi alternatives to create personal and tender music interlaced with messages of truth and positive change. Growing up in the rural town of Smyrna, Delaware, Sug had felt first-hand both the extreme joy and the major isolation that many LGBTQ+ people experience in Southern Baptist-style churches. After coming out, she left the church but continued her journey armed with the love of powerful music and celebration of community. She currently resides in the city of Philadelphia, and is continuing to create music to share and inspire those around her. After leading two successful musical projects, Hoochi Coochi and FlowCity, Sug has set out to create solo music that reflects her current views and personal stories.

The Lunar Year
The Lunar Year is the art rock project of Philadelphia based musician Katie Hackett. The Lunar Year has released two full length albums (Herodias, 2017) (Katie bird 2020) and is currently recording a third. Their songs have been featured on MTV’s Teen Mom, Teen Mom 2 and The Michalaks.

Best Bear
Best Bear is all about understated indie-rock, ethereal dream-pop textures, and heartfelt lyrics. At times lush and oneiric, at others raw and unapologetic, the band’s songs feel like a genuine portrait of the member’s life-long love of music. However, there is also an inclusive, community-driven element at play. Connecting with the audience and other artists drives the mindset of the band, which proudly identifies with the LGBTQIA+ community and values. Best Bear has released two well-received singles over the past few years, but the musicians in the band have continued to perfect their chemistry as a unit. They’re now set to release their first-ever full-length album “When”, which will undoubtedly be another milestone in the band’s discography and musical journey.
