CALVIN ARSENIA Brought in to 9 countries through public and private grants in less than a decade, Arsenia builds a scene for his audience, and for himself, packed with beauty and lasting delight. Arsenia’s angelic, classically-trained voice soars over audiences, while his multi-instrumental skills, particularly the Celtic harp, enchants them as he flirts between genres.

Arsenia dances between indie, jazz, and electronic music while calling upon rare harmonies and arrangements from his team of performers. His solo appearances are just as magical. “’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician and his breathtaking approach to harp music.” - Fally Afani, iheartlocalmusic

But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances, for Calvin believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances and high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands at well over six feet tall.

Josiah Johnson Josiah is best known for being a founding member of The Head and the Heart. He took a break from that work a few years ago to learn how to live more wholly integrated and to work with and through problems with addictions. His expanding solo creations are transcendent, healing folk songs. Deep and soulful ballads that paint the imagination with rich and emotional landscapes of love, loss and transformation. Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-and-voice-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity and beauty, with the powerful joy of singing together.
