Ray LaMontagne
Ray LaMontagne
After hearing a Stephen Stills song, Treetop Flyer, he decided to quit his job and pursue a career in music. He has since released three records, Trouble, Till The Sun Turns Black, and Gossip In The Grain. A soft-spoken person who is known for his raspy voice, LaMontagne has won a number of awards for his music and has performed at several charity events.
The Belle Brigade
The Belle Brigade
Founded by siblings Barbara and Ethan Gruska, The Belle Brigade's music is artfully arranged, with enticing melodies and pop harmonies, fueled by the interplay of driving rhythms between Barbara's drums and Ethan's guitars. Both are gifted songwriters – finding inspiration in the works of Peter Gabriel, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, Sly Stone, Harry Nilsson and countless others.

The Belle Brigade's self-titled debut (co-produced with Matthew Wilder) was hailed as one of the best albums of 2011 by PASTE. Ann Powers, writing for the Los Angeles Times, took note of the "memorable voices and considerable charisma within songs that gleam with hooks and pour over with earnest emotion" while Newsday praised the album's "sun-kissed '70s SoCal sound" and SPIN observed, "The brother and sister team from LA, bring beautiful harmonies to their quirky folk rock."

Their new album, "Just Because," was recorded with engineer and co-producer Shawn Everett and mastered by the legendary Bob Ludwig. It will be released by ATO Records on March 25, 2014.

When they find time away from the band, both are active players and writers for other projects - Ethan has recorded as a vocalist and multi instrumentalist for many Los Angeles based artists and Barbara is a sought-after drummer who has played with Fiona Apple, Jenny Lewis, Benji Hughes and many others.

The Belle Brigade has appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and "Conan" and their compelling live performances have led to tours with such artists as Dawes, Blitzen Trapper, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals and K.D. Lang. They contributed songs to the Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack and their cover of Bob Dylan's "No Time To Think," which appeared on the Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring 50 Years of Amnesty International, was voted in the top 10 songs of 2012 by Time Magazine.
