Lily Mae

Think Joni Mitchell meets Laura Marling and you've got a good idea as to what Lily Mae, a 19-year-old Contemporary Folk singer-songwriter, sounds like. Lily has been performing since she was four and released her debut EP, "Early Days," in 2012. The CD release concert for "Early Days" attracted over 250 people. Since then, her music has been garnering airplay internationally. She was first introduced to WXPN as their Pick of the Day, and most recently, was a live guest on Gene Shay's Folk Show. Lily's list of artists she has opened for includes: Livingston Taylor, Ben Taylor, Dry The River, Jenny Owen Youngs, The Marshall Tucker Band, Joan Osborne, and the list goes on.

Lily hails from Bucks County, PA, but has quite the following in the UK. "Early Days" has been reviewed on both Folk Radio UK and For Folk's Sake. For Folk's Sake called Lily "a younger Laura Marling before she was scorned by life." Truly amazing, prodigal, and innovative are all words that have been used to describe Lily's work.

Industry legend and President Emeritus of Blue Note Records, Bruce Lundvall says, "Lily Mae has a signature voice, writes excellent songs, and is a future star."

Kathy Saunders from the popular UK folk music website "For Folk's Sake" describes Lily Mae's voice, "The undulating vocals tell a tale of love, loss and the possibility of learning something in the aftermath of it all."

Jacqueline Maloney Extended Bio

Mix the vocal control of Streisand, the purity of sound of Eva Cassidy,
and you get a suburb instrument. Now add in great songs, an incredible
band, and you get Jacqueline Maloney!

Jacqueline is a sensational young vocalist who currently splits her time
between New York and Los Angeles. She is an adult contemporary artist, of
remarkable quality, that is rooted in the jazz standard genre. She
appeals to the same audience that Jamie Cullum or Michael Buble does, but
also reaches into the Norah Jones, and Anita Baker camp.

Building Block Music has recently completed production on Jacqueline's
first CD. This marvelous debut contains 10 tracks. Vocal jazz great Jon
Lucien and R&B Hall of Fame Artist, Gerald Alston (lead singer of the
Manhattans), were so taken with Jacqueline's voice that they lent their
vocals on two exciting duets!

Performing since she was 5 years old, Jacqueline has been in the theatre,
on the cover of magazines and in television. When Kenny Rogers brought
his show "Christmas from the Heart" to the renowned Beacon Theatre in New
York, Jacqueline was chosen out of many hundreds of vocalists, to appear
with him, and was the only other soloist in the show, besides Kenny.
Jacqueline has been an invited guest to sing at The Players Club in New
York City for the past four years, where she has been in shows with Dick
Cavett, Rue McClahan, and Steve Ross,

She has also enjoyed appearing on the stage in theatre productions with
John Glover, in "Time of Your Life", in LA. And as Gwendolyn in "Ernest
In Love", as Birdie in "Sneaux" with Kristen Bell, Angelina in "Kingdom"
at the Denver Center Theatre, and as Donna in "Tony & Tina's Wedding".
She also enjoyed playing Zanetta in "Music Man" with Gary Sandy.

In film and television she can be seen in "In & Out" with Kevin Kline,
"Funk Parlor" with James Wilder, "Sex In the City", "All My Children",
"Search for Tomorrow" and others.

This Spring Jacqueline has been appearing in the NYC and Philly areas
doing club dates and cabaret shows with her band, and as a duo. She has
also been an opener for headliners at The Sellersville Theatre in
Sellersville, Pa.

Wherever Jacqueline goes, she continues to wow the audience with her
stunningly beautiful voice, on stage charm, and fantastic songs, that are
written expressly for her by band member, Cathy Block.

Jacqueline Maloney is a class act that is destined to have a long career.
