Indie Blues rocker Isabella DeHerdt brings a fresh spin to that old twangy folk feel. When she isn’t jamming on stage solo with her electric guitar and bass drum, she can be found writing and performing with her alt-rock group Kalliope Jones. Utilizing her raw and powerful voice, down home grunge licks, and that four on the floor feel, Isabella strives to play music and create performances that has something in them for everyone to enjoy. She’ll be joined by friend Isaac Eliot (together they make up the duo High Tea) for this livestream and is excited to share brand new music with listeners!

Banished from the newfound intellectual freedom of her burgeoning liberal arts experience, Alouette Batteau peeks out from behind the evergreens to share her quarantine-inspired creations. She is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist whose music reflects influences ranging from folk rock to new wave, surfing the spectrum from r&b and soul to pure ecstatic pop. Magnetic grooves and cathartic harmonies add to the allure of her intelligent and insightful lyrics, creating a full moon force that’s impossible to resist. She is currently the drummer in the band, Kalliope Jones, which has been releasing music on all streaming platforms for years. In her 2020 debut solo release, “Extra Vacation Days,” Alouette slides to the bottom of the slippery slope of slacker grunge guitar. Gliding through currents like a deep sea diver, her milk and honey vocals find harmony in the cathartic expression of homemade collage-pop. Lavender lyrics mix with periwinkle-blue bass lines, graveyard-grey guitar riffs, and dogwood-rose drum fills, Batteau’s pandemic pop is the perfect playlist for your cellar dweller dance party.


Amelia Chalfant is a singer/songwriter/teva sandal enthusiast from Northampton, MA focussing on themes of queer love, youth, and her favorite pairs of shoes. Her music is driven by well crafted lyrics and a chaotic mixture of nasty basslines and effervescent acoustic guitar. She's been writing and performing original music since the age of 9. She has recently begun developing a solo repertoire and plans to release her debut solo album later this summer.
