anni xo (they/them) is a young queer musician hailing from Minnesota who found solace in music as a means to explore their identity and embrace the complexities of life. Inspired by the likes of boygenius, Taylor Swift, and Renee Rapp, anni’s music is a refreshing blend of alternative songwriting and folk stylings that expertly convey themes of love, loss, and the struggles of youth in a post-modern landscape.

Formerly Duluth-based artist Emma Jeanne plays as both a solo act and a three piece band. With influences stemming from early 2000’s female led acts, she brings an intense, fast flowing and melodic energy in her music.

We’re a dynamic R&B/Soul band, known for our infectious melodies and energetic live performances, drawing inspiration from legends like Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin. With a vibrant horn section featuring Matt Knudson on saxophone and Braden Williams on trumpet, along with soulful background vocalists Kryston Pastrano and Livi Lee, our music blends classic soul with a contemporary twist. Fronted by the charismatic Vinny Franco, our rhythm section, including Tyler Edwards on drums, Wes Mager on keys, and Tyler Trenhaile on bass, provides the groovy foundation for our sound. Join us for an unforgettable musical journey that celebrates the timeless power of R&B and soul – Vinny Franco and the Love Channel, where the heart meets the groove.

Lily Blue is a project started by Lily Perkins in 2020. Known for it’s dreamy instrumentals, poignant lyrics and soft vocals that create a sweet, nostalgic sound. She is often backed by a lovely band but will be performing the pieces just as they were written, solo with just guitar and vocals.
