Richard Ha

Richard is a senior from New York City at Boston College studying Economics and English. In high school he was in a pop punk band called Arms and Sirens and had an acoustic project called The Clap Track.

Alex Layton

I'm a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Westwood, MA, and my music is mainly pop/alternative rock, main influences being John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Matchbox Twenty, Coldplay, and others. My songs are all acoustic for now until I start a band which I hope to do after college. Find him on Facebook.

 

Nick Benevenia

New Jersey native Nick Benevenia, lacking the friends to form a band, has found himself playing the role of a singer/songwriter. Taking cues from artists such as Brian Fallon and Tom Waits, Nick attempts to dive into the darker side of acoustic rock. Describing his work as "soul infused anger," his shows are generally louder than you expect from acoustic performers. Find him on Facebook or Bandcamp.
