Sam Jay
Sam Jay
When asked how long she has been doing comedy Samaria Sam Jay Johnson smiles and replies 'For as long as I could speak'. Hailing from Boston MA a city that is no stranger to comedic prowess; a place that can lay claim to the comedic talents of Jay Leno, Louis C.K., Conan O'Brien and many others, Sam Jay is setting her own stage. Some would say the fact that she's female, African American, and a lesbian has allowed her to stand out in a male dominated industry. But it is more so how she can take these experiences and make them not only funny but relatable. Witty, candid, and raw she is bringing about a brand of comedy that has yet to be seen. Provoking audiences by pushing their thinking while still giving her sets the feel of a barroom conversation with one of your funniest friends. Her familiar personality on and off stage has allowed her to build quite the buzz in and around Boston comedy circles. Her 2013 invite to Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival and her 2014 acceptance into the Women In Comedy Festival as well as a stellar performance at the auditions for BET Comic View return to TV has got the industry insiders buzzing about this young lady. Opening for power house/veteran acts like Joe Clair BET, Hannibal Burres Comedy Central, and Rob StapletonComedy Central has not only helped this rising star hone her skills but has allowed her to branch out booking shows up and down the east coast. Performing at comedic institutions like Gotham NYC to the Comedy Studio in Cambridge Ma. Sam Johnson is wowing audiences and building her fan base. Her fresh, unique and warm approach makes Sam Jay a comedian worth seeing and one you will be talking about long after you do.

Kate Davis
Kate Davis
The music of multi-instrumentalist and singer Kate Davis has been turning heads in New York’s music scene since 2012. Whether she’s crooning rootsy ballads or plucking bright riffs from her bass, the gutsy songstress from Portland, Oregon, puts a fresh spin on the standards and brings a canonical sensibility to her own lush tracks.

Lauded by MTV as one of 2014’s “15 Fresh Females Who Will Rule Pop,” Kate grew up with an instrument in her arms and a head full of inventive lyrics. Her lifelong training makes for smart, warm pop that’s as musically nuanced as it is addictive. If you put a mid-career Jenny Lewis album in a room with Regina Spektor’s coloring, Joanna Newsom’s lyric poetry, and a dose of Tina Fey’s sharp wit—then added a couple decades of rigorous musical education—Kate Davis might come strolling out.

Vivid, nostalgic melodies materialize out of Kate’s musical arrangements, her songbird voice complimented by a rich rock ‘n’ roll bass-line. Alternating between achingly soulful and flippantly funny, Kate’s songwriting combines ranging sonic textures with an anecdotal knack. Her lyrics are novel and rhapsodic, cutting through the clichés and trivia of pop parlance to deliver something honest and truly perceptive. She’s performed at such illustrious venues as The Kennedy Center, The Bowery Ballroom, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall—as well as pretty much every noteworthy club in NYC.

Kate became a New York transplant in 2009, when she enrolled at Manhattan School of Music. Since, she's had the opportunity to collaborate with many of NYC's finest musicians and artists.
