Jana Pochop

Jana Pochop

Singer-Songwriter

 

A singer-songwriter with the articulation of a street poet.” – Terri Hendrix

Jana Pochop (the ‘h’ is silent) began her vastly diverse career as an independent singer-songwriter when, as a child, she asked for a drum kit and her parents got her a guitar instead.

 

Noelle Hampton

“Noëlle Hampton is the lead singer/songwriter for The Belle Sounds in Austin TX, a vocal coach and a jewelry designer with her own line, Noëlle Michelle Jewelry.

THE BELLE SOUNDS:

Shawnee Kilgore

Shawnee Kilgore

Singer-Songwriter

 

Shawnee Kilgore is an Austin, TX singer-songwriter living a crowd-funding fairy tale.

Joss Whedon, one of Hollywood’s most prominent directors (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, The Avengers) loved Shawnee’s music and her voice, and backed her Kickstarter project, taking the first step towards what would become the unlikeliest of creative partnerships.

They began writing together and in October 2016 released their long awaited collaboration EP, Back to Eden. “It was so clear that we were speaking the same language,” Joss said, “It’s been a little bit magical.”

Colonna’s just-right way with a phrase strikes right to the heart . . . with songs about the power of selflessness and love . . . songs of resistance in hateful times.” – No Depression

Wendy had the honor of being selected to perform at the 2016 Austin Women’s march for over 60,000 attendees.

Tracks from Wendy’s 2017 release “No Moment But Now” were featured in iTunes “Hot Tracks” & Spotify’s “Fresh Folk” Playlist.
