DIY electronic pop artist Leigh West pushes the boundaries of her music, with floaty melodies that keep it hypnotic and strange. Self-taught, self-developed, and classically trained, Leigh’s obsession with her craft has proven to be successful at her many gigs in Denver and Los Angeles. Her debut single “Hello Estella” made it to college radio across the nation, and acquired almost 40,000 hits on YouTube. Leigh West’s music is a smorgasbord of color, synth, and in-your-face beats.
Denver R&B artist Mawule reminds us that so much of the beauty of music comes from its ability to strengthen, empower, and connect others.

Mawule’s soothing vocals, gentle yet powerful stage presence, and catchy electronic beats make his music a unique experience that always elicits good vibes.
Solo artist Olivia Perez, otherwise known as, Pearls and Perelz is a mystery yet to be unveiled. Her ethereal, abstract sound strays from congruity and encourages the exploration of the mind’s dark corners. Pearls and Perelz keeps it cool, slow, haunting, and trance-like. Her music creeps up slowly and brings out the moodiest of feels.
Dubbed as “dark indietronica,” Teal and Tangent represent the half-dream half-awake fogginess that occurs in the depth of the night.

Teal and Tangent invites you to get lost in their rhythms, and listen with closed eyes.
