Ruthann Friedman, born in the Bronx in 1944, is a folk singer-songwriter known for penning the hit "Windy" for The Association. Raised in California, she began playing guitar at eight, influenced by folk icons like Woody Guthrie. Immersing herself in the music scene, she performed at local venues like The Troubadour, where she met influential musicians. Her songwriting prowess led her to befriend icons like Van Dyke Parks and bands like Jefferson Airplane. After a pause in her career, her debut solo album "Constant Companion" was reissued in 2006, sparking renewed interest in her music. Despite a hiatus, she continues to captivate audiences with her performances in Los Angeles.

Eva Louise Goodman and her collective, Nighttime, craft cosmic folk music in Los Angeles, transitioning effortlessly between medieval folk chants and dark-toned 1960s-inspired rock. Since 2014, Nighttime's music has explored psych-pop, girl group, and Americana influences, earning praise for its haunting vocals and atmospheric compositions.

Mercedes Kilmer is a singer/songwriter, actress, and producer based in Los Angeles. With new music on the way, Mercedes has been playing other local venues including the Troubadour and Zebulon opening for acts such as Loren Kramer and Gold Star.
