Donovan Duvall, known by his stage name Dono Dono, has followed his passion for music since inception. Born and raised in Northern Virginia, just outside of DC, he began playing percussion in the school orchestra at the age of 8, but it wasn’t until he received his first drum set at 12 that his passion for music took off. As a young adult, DonoDono played in several bands throughout high school and college and discovered his love for production and beat-making, inspired by electro-house music his older sister introduced him to.

DonoDono completed his degree in Jazz Percussion and Performance at Guilford College, where he honed his instrumental skills and began experimenting with beat-making. Influenced by diverse musical artists such as Daft Punk, Led Zeppelin, D’Angelo, Radiohead, Disclosure, Tame Impala, and Chick Corea, DonoDono’s music defies traditional genre classifications.

His debut EP “Prom” is a collection of introspective tracks that touch on a variety of themes, including masculinity, sexuality, grief, relationships, stress, and love. Through his music, Dono Dono shares his personal experiences and the expectations that come with them, creating a unique and impactful sound that resonates with listeners.

Massie is a power pop band from Virginia comprised of Emily Yaremchuk, Samantha Collings and Will Salzmann. With their roots firmly planted in the DMV’s iconic punk heritage, Massie brings a girlish twist to the genre, infusing intricate three-part harmonies and melodies with a strong pop sensibility over their bubble-punk infused instrumentals reminiscent of late 90’s and early 00’s alternative rock. 
Veronica Faison (she/her) is a DC-based singer-songwriter largely influenced by the classic jazz vocals of Nina Simone and Billie Holiday and the witty lyricism present in folk-inspired pop. She daylights as a lawyer in the gender justice movement, hoping for a world where more people can live with the dignity and delight they’re entitled to.
