Dan Croll Bio
A British singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (piano, trumpet, guitar, bass, drums, and organ among them), Dan Croll combines blending folk elements and classic Paul Simon-like melodies with electronic beats, African polyrhythms, and guitar hooks, giving his work a lot of varying sounds and dimensions. He was born July 18, 1990 in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, moving to Liverpool when he was 18 years old to attend the Paul McCartney-founded Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, and while there, he won the national Songwriter of the Year award presented by the Musicians Benevolent Fund, and the attention the award generated eventually led Croll to sign with Turn First Records early in 2012, and the label released a debut single, “From Nowhere,” in the fall of the same year, with a second single, “Compliment Your Soul,” arriving in the spring of 2013.

Panama Wedding Bio
Panama Wedding has quickly established itself as one of the most promising indie artists of the year with “All Of The People,” a deliriously joyful pop single that has been hailed by music outlets around the globe. But Peter Kirk, the New York-based mastermind behind Panama Wedding, is not dwelling upon the buzz garnered from his musical outfit’s breakthrough track; instead, Kirk is preparing a rich career full of expertly crafted songs that defy categorization, and a live show that grows more muscular as his audiences swell. “All Of The People” is an enduring anthem and
envious first act, but Kirk — newly signed to Glassnote Records and readying his debut EP — has much more up his sleeve.
Wayne Szalinski Bio
Wayne Szalinski is a twinkly post-whatever band from western Michigan. They use whirling guitar licks and bouncing bass lines to write fast-paced songs. Andy Milad’s throaty, fluttering vocals soar with Cedric Bixler Zavala-like tonality. Concise songwriting is the band’s forte, finding more satisfaction in a straight-forward product than one tainted by repetition.
