Katlyn Swanson - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Katlyn Swanson
I have been calling myself an artist ever since I began to write and produce my own music at 14. I learned how to play the piano, viola, and cello at a very young age, I picked up how to play a drum set in high school, sang in various choirs, danced, performed in musicals and theatre productions, and even taught myself how to play guitar. Despite having a widespread love for music, I have always thought of myself as a singer before everything else.
On my 14th birthday, my parents bought me a Mac laptop and a 49-key MIDI keyboard to start recording and producing my own music. I loved the feeling I got from transforming a song I heard in my head into a tangible work of art that I could easily share with anyone. I was so excited about my newfound passion that I decided it was time to graduate on to live performing. I started by calling up a trusty guitarist friend to play jazz and contemporary music with. We rehearsed weekly until I began booking our own shows around the Chicago-land area. One gig led to another until we had multiple shows a week! I knew for certain that performing and recording was something I wanted to make a career out of.
At 18, I moved to New York to study Recorded Music at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music and have since gotten a full band together to perform with: Katlyn Swanson & The Return. We play at venues like The Bitter End, The Delancey Bar, The National Underground, Ella Lounge, The Iridium Jazz Club, Slane Public House, Bowery Poetry Club, The Living Room, The Hit Factory, and Rockwood Music Hall. Upon graduating, I plan to stay in New York City to focus on promoting myself as a recording artist in addition to working as a booking agent for TurnStyle Music Group. I’m now writing music for my up-coming EP, “Under Cover,” to be released in 2014.

As a young boy you would often find him with his headphones on bumping anyone from the Notorious B.I.G, to Busta Rhymes, to Eminem. As a child he excelled in writing, reading, and the English language. He especially loved storys with deep plots, and above all else, poetry. Now 17 years old, Karma has been writing hip-hop lyrics for over 7 years and has worked with many different artists and producers. Whether rapping about his future ambitions, to his struggles with faith you can gaurentee that he will bring you a track packed with complex lyrics, and intricate flow. In may of 2009, he released his first ever mixtape titled "Against All Odds". As he calls it, the CD was the "Epitome" of his soul. And is based on his struggles with his academics, drugs, and society itself. In 2010 he dropped his second official mixtape "Breaking The Silence". .. "It's true that it really is a shame when good people are silent. Growing up i never believed it when people told me that "Everyone can make a difference", but im slowly starting to see that small actions are the building blocks of larger ones. And without the small actions there would be no big ones at all. I believe in peace and love, and although i might not show it on the outside, these are the principles which drive my actions. Love cannot be expressed in words, and therefor should be displayed through actions. Stop talking about making a difference and make a difference through your actions. I stand up for what i believe in, and although you might not believe it, i would be willing to die for it too." - Karma
