Meiko
Meiko
Buzzworthy singer-songwriter MEIKO, who is one-quarter Japanese on her maternal grandmother’s side, was born and raised in rural Georgia. She got her start in 2007 at the
venerable Los Angeles venue The Hotel Café (where she also worked as a bartender). Since then she’s released three critically-acclaimed albums and numerous EPs through MySpace/DGC, Concord Records and Universal Japan. Meiko has built a massive tour following in the U.S. performing as a headliner and also as support for artists including Jewel, KT Tunstall, Eric Hutchinson, Mat Kearney and others, and she’s also toured Europe and Asia multiple times. Live performances on late night TV shows including Conan, Jay Leno and Carson Daly further fanned the flames, and her hit song “Stuck On You” was played on radio across the U.S. and even reached #1 on the radio charts in Japan.

Marissa Lauren
Marissa Lauren is a singer/songwriter from Redondo Beach, CA. She writes piano driven Pop music with heavy Indie Pop and Folk influences, plus the occasional sprinkling of R&B, giving her a truly unique sound. She has been compared to artists like Regina Specktor, Sara Bareilles, Kate Nash, and Adele. Marissa recently caught the attention of singer Ingrid Michaelson who called her voice 'beautiful' & 'haunting'. Since then, she has opened for comedian, Lena Dunham, on her unconventional book tour 'Not That Kind of Tour', and began working on her Debut EP 'Now & Forever'.

Marissa was awarded Best Vocals, Most Original, and Song of The Year at UC Irvine's Antstock music festival; a campus-wide competition for songwriters. Her cover of Nicki Minaj's, 'Starships' gained much attention when Nicki Minaj herself tweeted Marissa's video to her 17 million followers. 97.1 AMP Radio also named Marissa's acoustic/acapella version of 'Starships' one of "the best covers of the year's hottest tracks!".

Her cover projects have also inspired her to explore music production. Today, she arranges, records, and produces music projects from her home studio. When she isn't writing, or collaborating with other artists and producers, you can find her playing solo sets (and whenever possible, with a full band) all over Southern California.
