As one of the fastest rising Minneapolis bands right now, Carroll, a quartet that graduated from Macalester College last year and got their name from the street they lived on. Carroll is composed of Brian Hurlow (keys/guitar/vocals), Max Kulicke (guitar), Charlie Rudoy (drums), and Charles McClung (bass/vocals). This year they released their debut EP, Needs, to great press.

"Needs is a perfectly crafted indie-pop gem. Lead singer Hurlow's light voice is wired to the dreamy five tracks on the EP, a deliberate mash-up of noise and art. It's the kind of thing the indie music blogosphere and world at large will eat up -- songs that recognize their own irony and shrug it off."
– City Pages

"Among the freshest tracks we've heard come from the Twin Cities in a while." – The Current

Nelly’s Echo, formed by Nelson Emokpae (Lead singer) in early 2007, originates from the premise that music is a two way street. “Nelly” refers to the musician/music and “Echo” refers to the audience’s appreciation of the music.  Nelly’s Echo is neither a band or a solo musician, but a concept of the musical experience associated with it’s creator Nelson.  Nelly’s Echo has self-released two successful albums, performed at over 100 colleges in the past year, entertained the troops in Cuba, and is returning to the studio for the third album to be released in 2012.  With Nelly’s Echo, you can “make good music the soundtrack to [your] life.”

“Welcome to your musical punch in the face,” says Amanda Duncan from the stage to the crowd as she flashes a knowing smile. Once she starts to sing, the big question is, “How does that huge sound come out of that little body?” Never quite blessed with height, Amanda was blessed with one roaring set of pipes. And even before the 2009 independent release of her “Love I Have For You” EP, Duncan was able to drum up considerable success, based solely on some homemade demos, her live show, and her infectious personality, opening for names such as Eric Hutchinson, Ari Hest, Secondhand Serenade, and Melissa Ferrick.

She is a soldier in the new army of musicians who rely only on themselves to make things happen whether it be branding her name with graphic art or even engineering half of her own record. She draws from a diverse blend of the crooning hits of the 30′s and 40′s and the pop-country of today, to craft what has become her light-hearted, head-bopping acoustic sound. 180 degrees from the winey, suicidal droning of many singer-songwriters, in a black and white world, Amanda Duncan is a burst of color
