With the ability to seamlessly fuse opera, electronic music, pop and indie into an intoxicating and infectious hybrid, there's never been artist quite like Elizaveta. You haven't ever heard pop take flight on classical pipes like these. The New York city born and Russian raised musical alchemist nods to everyone from Bach and Bjork to another former opera singer Freddy Mercury, and her multi-instrumental talents are nothing short of dazzling. Elizaveta's digital EP has already gotten tastemakers buzzing. Marie Claire enthusiastically writes, "Elizaveta stole my heart, and it’s only a matter of time before she steals yours. What are you waiting for? Drop everything and download Elizaveta’s EP now!", while The Insider proclaimed that she's "exciting and enthralling". The critical fervor hasn't stopped there as Fashion Week Daily called her song "Meant" a "piano masterpiece". However, the EP simply set the stage for the full-length. Produced by reputable multi-Grammy award winner Greg Wells [Adele, Rufus Wainwright, Katy Perry, Elton John], the album breaks ground and establishes Elizaveta as a 21st century presence with an old soul.

Toshi Reagon has been described as "a talented, versatile singer, songwriter and musician with a profound ear for sonic Americana--from folk to funk, from blues to rock" by critic/blogger Eva Yaa Asantewaa (InfiniteBody). "She masters each of these genres with vocal strategies that easily spiral and swoop from the expressively sinuous to the hard-charging, a combination of warmth and mischief." Toshi has had the pleasure of working with Lenny Kravitz, Lizz Wright, Ani DiFranco, Carl Hancock Rux, Nona Hendryx, Pete Seeger, Chocolate Genius and many other amazing artists, including her favorite collaborator, her mom, Bernice Johnson Reagon. Yaa Asantewaa writes, "Toshi knows the power of song to focus, unite and mobilize people. If you've been lucky enough to be in Toshi's presence, you know you can't walk away from her without feeling better about yourself as a human being. She aims for nothing less." Toshi has been the recipient of a NYFA award for Music Composition, The Black Lily Music and Film Festival Award for Outstanding Performance. She is a National Women's History Month Honoree, and is the 2010 recipient of OutMusic's Heritage Award.
