Humbalaya was formed at the University of Maryland, College Park in 2015, and has played around the DMV area ever since. The six-piece group always found that their meals and musical experiences lent themselves to each other, and have tried to combine the joys of both into one. With elements of latin, rock, bluegrass, funk, and jazz fusion, Humbalaya will bring you comfort just like a delicious home-cooked meal. Their EP, Free Samples, was just the first taste. Their first full-length album, Billows, will be released in the Summer of 2022.

Knovo is a DC-based band that delivers a dreamy blend of indie, jazz, and psych rock, which aims for both the mind and soul. The group’s collective influences yield a sound that is melodic, yet distressed. Retro, yet new. And above all, full of light and energy.

Attic Sessions started out as a pandemic project, when a group of friends decided to get together to make music, drink beer and pass the time. Jazz-trained but widely influenced, the band started playing covers of their favorite songs ranging from acts like Thundercat to RH Factor to Koko Taylor. After a few months of live-streaming, they decided to get creative. The attic became a space to try new things, and is where a confluence of styles began to take shape. Soulful vocals, deep grooves, bluesy riffs and ethereal harmonies defined their sound. Their first single, Realize The Tide, was their earliest collaboration, and the result felt nothing short of magical. Quickly becoming addicted to this creative process, the now member-shifting band began workshopping ideas while playing local gigs. The band is stoked to be releasing their first EP, Realize the Tide, in May of 2022, including the single Come Thru, which pays homage to the DMV music scene.
