How to Be a Solo Artist (feat. Max Shakun)
Based in Providence, RI, Max Shakun has been performing since he was young - he started learning piano in kindergarten, but later switched to guitar and joined his high school’s choir. For nearly the last decade, he’s performed with indie-folk outfit Parsonsfield but once the pandemic hit, Shakun decided to switch gears and return to his own sonic roots. He left the band last summer and set out on a remote recording journey at his home studio. The resulting EP Heatwave captures a feeling more than anything else. Shakun uses summer-y synth and funky guitar to craft a sunny, carefree vibe that you want to bask in for ages. He jokingly calls his sound “carbonated water indie,” and the EP is just as effervescent and refreshing to behold. Drummer and Producer of funk-soul band Miss Mojo and Shakun’s former camp friend (they knew each other when they were 13-years-old and both “had really long hair”) Mack Major worked as the producer on the EP, helping to shape the sound and providing all of the percussion on the tracks.

Make Your Dream a Reality (feat. Alex Bochel)
This artist is the poster child for the independent come up. In 2019 he was living in his car and producing melodies in spare bedrooms and coffee shops. By 2020 his music grew by over 5000% from 900 streams to 100,000+. His personal mantra is that it’s impossible to go through life alone. That mantra ties in closely with his music career because even though he is independent, he’s far from lonely. He has built a community around his music that most other EDM artists strive for. He inspires action and answers the call to adventure to look for beauty in the world. Please give us a helping hand in bringing on…Alex Bochel!
