Bess Hepner // Erika Lundahl

Originally from Western Massachusetts, bess hepner has been playing music since she was 8 years old. Previously she played in Who'da Funk It?, a Western Mass band that blended multiple genres including funk, alternative rock, ska, klezmer, hip-hop, blues, jazz, punk and more. In 2011 bess started working on her solo project (bess hepner) and will release her first album 17-24  April 26th, 2019 under Rolling Crone Record's label. In a similar vein of Who'da Funk It?, her solo music blends many genres including acoustic folk, rawk, jazz, classical guitar, blues, punk, etc. Her work is biographical and full of a feisty authenticity that draws on experiences of coming of age.

Erika Lundahl is a musician, writer and activist based in Seattle, WA. She employs her classically trained voice and distinctive "tapping" guitar style to create an enveloping, atmospheric musical space. Heart forward, her original lyrics weave in wisdom and words of women poets of past eras such as Sappho and Edna St. Vincent Millay, addressing contemporary social and environmental issues with poignant and powerful imagery.
