Brandon Hoogenboom
Brandon Hoogenboom
Brandon Hoogenboom is an American singer/songwriter, who called Australia home for a large part of his musical career. It was in Australia where he met future bandmates and co-writers Josiah Willows, Joshua May and Daniel May – the quartet shortly became known as Set Sail.

During Hoogenboom’s time with Set Sail, they developed a strong following and a great reputation from their world busking tour – which saw the band travel across 48 different countries across Asia, Europe and North America, all of which was documented via a web series on YouTube.

The extensive Set Sail catalogue preaches themes of youthfulness and a carefree spirit, and musically, stays true to their unique brand of indie-pop summer jams. Together the band has released four EPs including Good Vibes (2015), The World Stage (2013), Hey! (2012) and The Riley Moore EP (2011). This together with the tour garnered them a strong online following and a solid 30K Facebook fans.

Hoogenboom moved back to the USA, basing himself in Los Angeles, California. He is currently working on a brand new solo album, due for release in January 2019.

DCR Pollock
"d.c.R. Pollock is a genre-blending singer-songwriter from Costa Mesa, CA, who began releasing music from his parent’s garage at 14. He released his first full- length, self-titled record at 16, which featured Michael Gungor (Gungor) on guitar, and Dan Bailey (Father John Misty) on drums. d.c.R.’s style is hard to fit in a single category - its an eclectic concoction of indie rock, experimental, jazz, and R&B; but with a lyrical influences stemming from Hemingway, Eggers, Cohen, and Oberst. As an accomplished musician he uses complex arrangements to carry his equally as well crafted lyrics, while sacrificing the quality of neither."
Jordie Saenz
Jordie Saenz
Singing honest songs in hushed tones over fingerpicked strings and ambient soundscapes, Jordie Saenz marries traditional folk with modern sounds and styles. His songs combine philosophy, religious / mythological symbolism, and autobiography, creating space for introspection and contemplation. His ambiguous, yet poignantly transparent lyrics and cascading melodies are reminiscent of indie folk gods Sufjan Stevens, Bon Iver, and Iron & Wine.


Jordie Saenz's first release, The Northern State, was recorded in the closet of a one-bedroom apartment, revealing a raw, emotional simplicity of bare-bones guitar and a quiet voice.
