  • Kate Grahn

    Kate Grahn

    Pop

    When you put together a dash of rebellion, a hint of soul, and a spark of feminism, you get Kate Grahn, an LA born-and-raised songstress & USC Thornton Pop-major. Through her sharing of genres such as pop/rock and indie-alternative, it is evident that Grahn is the spunky, edgy, and old-fashioned starlet the world needs. At only 21 years old, she has grabbed the attention of a wide-ranging demographic, all those old and young, as she speaks to fans of Bishop Briggs, Grace Potter, and Stevie Nicks.

    Although she grew up under the spotlight of her single mother, General Hospital star Nancy Lee Grahn, Kate was consistently determined to stay authentic, from adolescence to the present. While her songs pay tribute to her childhood, including themes of trust, abandonment, love, and illness, they also shadow the current issues of today, which is what motivates Grahn the most.

    Grahn is an advocate for equal rights and promoting women empowerment. This goes lengths in proving that Kate Grahn is a fighter, using her music to protest, encourage, and raise up others as the art had been intended to do. Her aim is to inspire women in the world to utilize their voice, especially in today's political and social climate where many do not/can not.

    Megan Winsor

    Singer-Songwriter

    ​Got music because something in her soul told her to write songs. Megan Winsor is an American Singer/Songwriter from Newport Beach, CA. Growing up, Megan listened to popular music played on the radio as well as 80s hits her parents love. These classic songs sparked an investigation for inspiration and lead her to singer/songwriters and alternative artists.

    In the summer of 2016, she was signed to a Artist Development deal with DNT Entertainment . She has built a organic following of amazing and awsome fans with her consistent release of popular cover songs. 

    On August 18, 2017, Winsor released her first single of her in production EP, Caught Up. Enhanced content for this single launched Megan's Vevo channel on October 20, 2017. ​

    She has a growing catalog of many (maybe too many) original songs, written for others as well as for her own personal use, that has caught the attention of many people in the industry, which to no surprise is resulting in the production of a full length album that is soon to come in the near future.  Megan is mostly known for her songwriting where she creates engaging melodies with twisted metaphors that will leave a listener wondering if the song was written for them. Her eyes are set on a career of writing for others as well as writing and performing for herself.
  • Ramona and the Nonsense

    Ramona and the Nonsense

    Alternative Rock

    Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ramona Cooper has been readying for the release of their debut record, under the pseudonym Ramona and the Nonsense, their entire life. Ramona and the Nonsense is Ramona’s current project, offering a modern take on glam rock sprinkled with a sense of mysticism and a visionary twist. Their upcoming record, Troubadour, is entirely self-written, produced, played, and engineered. Troubadour tells the tale of youth, love and discovery, all in relation to The Fool tarot card. Coloring their heartfelt and emotional lyrics with a heavy, grunge-rock sound, Ramona and the Nonsense is using their voice to make a difference.
     
    Born to a music-loving family, Ramona never remembers a time without music. Growing up listening to whatever their parents were playing, Ramona was grounded in everything from folk to rock to show-tunes. This was no accident. Ramona’s parents brought Abbey Road to the hospital when Ramona was born, determined to give Ramona a firm foundation. It shows. Today, Ramona plays 9 instruments, including piano, guitar, bass, violin, and even the Theremin. They dabble in even more. Ramona is a master of multiple genres, having played in several bands of various styles before settling into the glam-infused garage rock they play today. Combining their natural talent with access to their father’s at-home studio, Ramona began writing, recording and playing music early on. Yet, the importance of music in Ramona’s life all changed when they first heard Death Cab for Cutie.
     
    Never having realized the emotional depth music could have, Ramona’s relationship with music evolved as it took on a personal significance. Ramona found comfort and solace in hearing their own heartaches sung back to them, seeing for the first time the power in lyrics. Vulnerably honest artists like Death Cab for Cutie, Beck, St. Vincent, Metric and K. Flay became like friends, and more importantly, inspirations. Ramona applied this honest and reflective songwriting to their own artistry, as they continued to play and expand their horizons. Originally taking this new lyrical approach to their Riot Grrl punk bands, Ramona continued to work and develop their sound into more traditional rock. By late-high school, Ramona was playing as many as two shows a week in Austin, crafting their sound and vision. In 2016, Ramona moved to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California and continue their music dreams. With only their talent and drive, Ramona was left to begin anew and find their way in a big city. Through this, Ramona and the Nonsense was born.
    With a clear image for their artistry, Ramona and the Nonsense allows Ramona to create a comprehensive, unique world. Ramona and the Nonsense boasts of a cohesive brand, with music, colors, and message all being carefully considered and arranged. Fashion is key for Ramona and the Nonsense, as shown through their unique sense of style, which they call “speed racer gothic.” A black and white aesthetic with touches of primary color, like their trademark blue hair, Ramona and the Nonsense’s classic image is then met with a classic sound. Somewhere between garage rock and grunge, Ramona and the Nonsense’s music is peppered with timeless, introspective lyrics and lo-fi tones. The lead single off Troubadour, “Mine,” is a snapshot of a failing relationship, backed by a steady drumline and an unforgettable guitar riff. Rife with emotion and intellect, “Mine” is the first glimpse into the heart of Ramona and the Nonsense, and the world of Troubadour.
     
    Troubadour is a concept album of the deepest variety. Maps, characters, and reoccurring narratives all come together to tell the story of both Ramona and the Nonsense, and one of the most interesting and hotly debated Tarot cards: The Fool. The first and last Tarot card, indicating both innocence and, at times, foolishness, Ramona and the Nonsense uses The Fool’s story as a parallel for their own adolescence. With refreshing sincerity and a knack for storytelling, Ramona and the Nonsense sings a beautiful narrative of coming of age, figuring out who you love, and becoming who you are. Breakups, moving, discovering drugs and finding oneself are all themes that exist throughout Troubadour as Ramona and the Nonsense relays their own mishaps, struggles, and growth to listeners. For Ramona, this upcoming record is a project close to their heart, and entirely theirs.
     
    Self-written, self-produced, and self-engineered, Ramona also plays every instrument featured on the record, singlehandedly creating everything that Troubadour is. While Ramona likes to leave the reason behind “the Nonsense” up for interpretation, they do confess that it purposefully leaves room for more creativity in their live show. Having been performing their entire life, Ramona and the Nonsense offers a compelling live performance. Whether acoustic or backed by a full band, Ramona and the Nonsense’s songs are brought to life with a deep purpose. Ramona and the Nonsense hopes, more than anything, that Troubadour will make a connection with listeners, reaching people the way music has reached them.
     
    Open with their own identity, Ramona and the Nonsense hopes that their transparency and honesty will increase queer representation and give a voice to queer struggles, assuring LGBTQ+ listeners that they are not alone. Ramona and the Nonsense is using their voice as a platform to lend understanding and offer fans comfort and support. Ramona and the Nonsense’s ultimate goal is to inspire others, wanting Troubadour to encourage listeners to go out, share their voice, and create their own music.
