Battlefield Collective is the combined musical talents and efforts of Stephanie Caron and Evan Hart. A unique blend of bluegrass, Americana, roots, and rockabilly give the group an unmistakable and unique sound that is as full of energy as it is passion.

Touring the southeast, Battlefield Collective performs original material as well as their own arrangements of cover songs selected from top hits from the past sixty years. Energy and creativity set Battlefield Collective apart from the other bands, as well as their ability to be flexible and versatile.

Stephanie and Evan perform as a duo, but also frequently hire local musicians to create a fuller sound.

A blend of influences, from classic rock to hip hop, have lead to the creation of a jazzy-pop band: Mr. Blue Sky. They're lost and found somewhere between a folk song and a beatbox, and there's usually a ukulele throw in there somewhere. Enjoy.

He Sang She Sang, also known as HsSs, is a songwriting and arranging duo that thrives on musical exploration and live performance. Each having led a musical life before they met, Bronne and Alma have only begun making music together a year after they were married. Their complementing songwriting and arranging styles resulted in a fruitful musical union.

He Sang She Sang specifically writes music for voice and their instruments: the piano, guitar, glockenspiel, and other percussion instruments. Indeed, vocal and instrumental interaction is key to their unique and inventive musical style, and have even included unusual instruments, such as Philippine gongs and jaw's harp, to their arrangements.
