3pm Alexa Ford
Alexa Ford has been singing and playing piano for many years. A classically trained piano player and singer, Alexa began writing songs and compositions at the young age of 9. The first song she wrote was dedicated as a Christmas present for her mom. Since then Alexa has developed as an artist and has defined herself within songwriting. Now 15, Alexa’s songwriting and piano compositions have developed into stories about love, heartache, adventure and finding your inner voice, which she delivers in a powerful and passionate blend of soul, jazz, blues and pop. Alexa draws her passion for music writing from her own personal life experiences and pulls her inspiration for songwriting from all different types of music.
As a high school student at Kellenberg Memorial High School, Alexa sings for her school’s Jazz Choir and performs at local venues throughout Long Island. In addition, Alexa has developed a world-wide following on her Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/jlmford1. Alexa wants to pursue a career in the music industry as a singer songwriter and hopes that with hard work and the support of her family and friends, she can attain the career of her dreams.
4pm Arreana Jaye
18 year old Arreanna writes all of her lyrics and music and has so since her first encounter with heartache at the tender age of 13, where she also had her first big show opening up for renowned musical star Stig Rossen. Having lived the majority of her life in rural Denmark, she has developed her skills within a small, creative music community where she experienced her first gigs belting out Foo Fighters as well as jazz standards. Throughout High School she was the lead singer for a Jazz Band and she has trained opera and musical theater, but due to her instrumental interests as well as literary she attained a particular fascination with songwriting. Over the years, she has worked to refine these skills by immersing herself in all sorts of musical genres, but she always returns to jazz.
Determined upon really retrieving her ties to the jazz world, Arreanna is soon to enter Berklee College of Music as a jazz vocalist. On her independently released EP 'Casting Shadows', Arreanna reflects over the impacts she desires to embrace, but also acknowledges the negative impacts others obtain over her whether it be a friend, fiend or romantic interest. Musically and lyrically it is a coming-of-age sort of tale, and although she strives for depth and reflection, she more than anything wants to just give herself and others enjoyment with her music.
5pm Jeremy Aaron
Songs that make the world a smaller place, that connect people of all different walks of life. Those are the songs that Jeremy is drawn to, and they are the reason that Jeremy began to write songs. He grew up immersed in roots music and listening to Joni Mitchell, Pete Seeger, Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Joan Baez, and James Taylor, to name a few. They inspired Jeremy to start writing songs. He writes about many topics-politics, love, the environment, poverty, war—but whatever he writes about, he hopes to tell a story.
Jeremy Aaron’s style is a blend of folk, blues, jazz, and roots music, filled with passion and poetry. His soulful voice blends seamlessly with the warm sound of an acoustic guitar. As a student at Oberlin College, he performs in the local scene there, playing at the Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse, the Dionysus Disco, and the annual Oberlin Folk Fest. He is also part of the college band, the Convicts.
