Juniper Ginger is the solo project of Portland, Maine songwriter Alex Millan. Through Juniper Ginger, Alex tells (mostly) honest stories about the real & imagined experiences in her life. Her songs explore themes of intimacy, (dis)connection, navigating grief, and finding home. When heard live, sparse accompaniment invites listeners to get lost in the poetry. Juniper Ginger’s debut studio album I Saw The Wreckage was released independently in November 2016, followed by Death & Danger in May 2017 and Made of Gold in November 2017. A new recording project is anticipated for late 2018/early 2019.
Prateek is a folk singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. His debut EP, “Walking in My Sleep,” was recorded in a bedroom with only his guitar and two microphones. Since then, Prateek has been a Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalist and has been nominated for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at both the New England Music Awards and the Boston Music Awards. His most recent single "The Gang's All Gone" was released in February of 2019. His latest EP will be released in June of 2019.
