Jensen McRae is a 19-year-old singer-songwriter. She currently studies popular music performance at the USC Thornton School of Music alongside her fellow performers; she is a second-year student with an emphasis in songwriting. Jensen regularly performs at student-run venues at USC and around Los Angeles at large. This is her fourth year putting on charity concerts with her talented friends. In addition to these shows, she has written songs for a number of charitable organizations, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles and No Kid Hungry. She recently started an online collective called "Major Pop Records," a project in which she endeavors to cowrite music with as many popular music students and alums as possible. Outside of music, Jensen also writes films, novels, plays, and poetry--her slam poem "Trumpets," which she cowrote with a high school classmate, is currently featured on Button Poetry, a YouTube conglomerate that hosts the best slam poetry from competitions all over the country.
Mackin Carroll is an LA singer-songwriter who wears his strange, endearing heart on his sleeve. Drawing from an eclectic musical taste, Carroll could often be seen leaving a record store with anything from Otis Redding to Rage against the Machine. His own style is rooted in folk, but with an edge. His raw voice delivers a lyric that can be cynical or sentimental, but is always honest.
Daniel Davila is currently a vocalist at the prestigious Thornton School of Popular Music within the University of Southern California. Daniel attended both the New York and LA Grammy Camps, once as a vocalist and again within the music industry track. Grammy Camp allowed Daniel to navigate through the different aspects of industry in order to find his true passion. Since then, he has recently returned from singing for the President and First Lady at the White House along with a two week tour of Hong Kong with his a capella group The Socal Vocals. Daniel has also worked as a session vocalist in Los Angeles along with studying and actively producing music. Last year, Daniel was given the opportunity to open for Hunter Hayes at Club Nokia for the beginning of GRAMMY week for Grammy in the Schools. Daniel is currently continuing his studies at USC while also writing and singing for his band, Fabriq, a R&B soul band consisting of all USC students. He hopes to continue playing shows and releasing music in order to reach his goal of becoming a professional and respected vocalist within the industry.
