Spencer Albee


Spencer Albee is a Portland based and nationally acclaimed singer, songwriter and producer. Since 1995, he has toured internationally, signed multiple recording and publishing deals and worked with artists ranging from David Bowie to De La Soul.  Rolling Stone Magazine recently called Spencer a "21st Century master in the lost art of Beatlesque hooks."

Natalie Mishell

Folk singer-songwriter Natalie Mishell was born and raised in sunny southern California. For most of her younger years, she worked in film, TV, and commercials before moving from Los Angeles to New York to pursue her music career. She now resides in Portland, Maine where she co-founded “The Maine Music Project'' whose mission it was to help keep live music alive during the 2020 lockdown. She recently released her Single “Let Me Love You’ with Producer (Dan Capaldi) on April 1st and is currently working on her EP “On The Other Side'' to be released in the Fall of 2021.

Zach Jones

With an encyclopedic knowledge of yesterday’s music and an awareness and appreciation for today’s, Jones combines the raw energy and style of the 1960’s British pop explosion, with the soulful expression of the R&B that poured from Motown & Stax. While paying tribute to the music he loves, yet expanding beyond tradition, Jones has created a fresh musical melting pot of modern rock, pop, and soul.
