Meet Nicholas Raymond:
Remembering the time he stole his brothers Red Hot Chili Peppers cassette tape and blared it as he cruised around the neighborhood on his bike, Raymond first felt the influence of music from a young age. He came on to the scene as the lead singer/drummer for The Traveling Suitcase and has since done a lot of collaborating with long-time friend and musician, Brandon Domer. Self-taught on the guitar and a natural talent on the drums, Raymond is a storyteller at the core who also writes, sings and produces his own material. His connection to music and years of life experiences have also led him to roles as a motivational speaker, youth leader and recovery coach.
Now, let’s meet Jim and Sam:
After 10 years of performing together, Jim & Sam challenged themselves to play one show per day over the course of a year. They mixed their music-making with filmmaking to chronicle this experience in After So Many Days an award-winning documentary thats been screened at film festivals across the world. Together, the two released their sophomore album, Yeah Whatever Young Forever, in 2019.
And last but not least, let’s meet Natural Satellite!
It was a true love story in the making when Jason and Karli Reisdorf met while studying for their music degrees at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. The two combine their instrumental talents for a product of acoustic folk with a touch of jazz as Jason plays jazz saxophone and Karli plays cello.
