Krave Amiko began in early 2019 by Rob Walsh and a handful of songs crafted by combining homemade lo-fi acoustic guitar samples, trip-hop inspired rhythm sections, and lyrical storytelling. The line-up is made complete by Stephanie Barcelona on vocals, Joseph Allawos on bass, Nestor Teran on guitar, and Jake Cavinder on drums.
Stray Local is the husband-and-wife songwriting duo of Hannah and Jamie Rowen based in Raleigh, North Carolina. The pair performs a bouquet of indie sounds punctuated by powerful vocal melodies, vibey guitar riffs, dreamy synths, and rich harmonies woven together with a strong pop sensibility. 2020 was the year Stray Local made the move to Raleigh to be immersed in the thriving triangle music scene, when of course Covid put a halt to shows, tours, and collaborations. They turned to writing and producing music from their home studio. They recently released Featherweight, which is the band's 3rd new single of 2021.
