K Sloan | Retro Soul Artist
Growing up I didn’t originally aim to work in the singing industry. Singing was something I did for fun. I had two big doubts before making singing a career. I was worried about people understanding my music and the message I was trying to get across. When I was first starting out, it was all solo gigs.

As I was browsing around Guitar Center, scoping out the Novation Launchpad Pro, a male sales associate swaggered toward me with a grin. “How’s everything going?” he asked. “I’m doing well, thanks, just kind of browsing right now”. His presence lingered briefly while I read the back of the box and decided not to engage in any further pleasantries. I was in a hurry and wanted to check out the price and compare two of the models.
Emily Whitehurst | Survival Guide
I have changed SO much as a performer over the years. I started out singing in a punk band, not responsible for anything but my own microphone and my voice. Then I played in an electro-pop band and added keyboards. Now, in Survival Guide, I have to be practiced enough and have enough trust in myself to be able to do it all!
Bianca Monica | Singer-Songwriter
It’ll be one year in January since I quit my nine-to-five job to start a social media and digital marketing company and simultaneously run full speed ahead with my music. I just recently gained a business partner, released a new single after taking a two-year hiatus and am planning to head back into the studio in a few months.
JoLivi | Singer-Songwriter
I was blessed with this beautiful gift from my darling grandfather on my mother's side! He was an angel and when he sang the room would go quiet. I sang always when I was little and then went on to do musical after musical and while winning singing competitions. I didn't go to college for it but I knew that it was going to be the path I’d continue on.
Katie Nehra | Actress, Writer & Designer
Katie Nehra is what LFC (and pretty much anyone else) would describe as a triple threat - between acting, writing, and designing, it seems as though Nehra does it all. You can catch her playing the right hand woman to another equally headstrong and talented woman in a pseudo-love story about a hitman, but you can also catch her co-writing scripts, and when she's not doing that, she's building a fashion empire. Read below to learn a little more about this entrefemmeur who's taking the art world by storm.
Sofia Salazar | Textile Designer
Hi LFC! I'm Sofia and I'm a textile designer, I'm Argentinian, I live in the UK, and I'm now my own boss. Both of my parents are artists and they've always worked on their own. I grew up surrounded by people that 'made things' for a living. Whether it was clothing, accessories, tapestries or even houses, they were building, they were creating - and that really had an impact on my whole perception of life and family and career.
Beth Spencer | Web Designer & Beth Spencer Design
Do some recreational doodling, take a walk to think about ideas for new work, meet a friend for lunch and ask what they think of your work and ideas. Post everything on social media and don't take feedback personal. You have to create a lot of bad material before you get to the good stuff, but that's a part of the ride.
