Poet, rapper and producer George Watsky is known simply as Watsky. Based in San Francisco he earned international attention in 2006 when he was named the Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam Champion as well as the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Champion for his insightful take on political and social issues. Having once compared political slogans to pick-up lines heard in bars, Watsky has a knack for using comedy to highlight ridiculous and frustrating aspects of politics. His talent for poetry crossed over into music in 2009, when he produced and released his eponymous hip hop album. He has since continued to release albums and mixed tapes, such as 2010's Guilty Pleasures and 2011's A New Kind of Sexy, with his witty brand of comedy hip hop.

Portland, Oregon by way of North Carolina songwriter Sallie Ford possesses an old-time charm that is unique in its purity and lack of winking irony. She croons with the power and high-pitched flexibility of a vintage jazz diva, maintaining a quirky sense of upbeat fun and playfulness throughout most of her material. Her backing band, the Sound Outside, is equally up to task in creating the light and breezy rustic jazz pop it's quickly building its name upon. Clean electric guitar strumming, walking upright bass lines and shuffling drums flesh out Ford's songs perfectly and help add a sense of confident cohesiveness to the proceedings. Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside's debut album is set for release in 2011.
