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.

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.

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.

There’s something I keep noticing that really fills me with hope: it seems that, most of the time, people don't start out doing the thing that ends up making them great. It really seems like they're all over the place, engrossing themselves in whatever has their attention in the moment, changing focus at a moment’s notice to a new venture. Being all over the place isn’t a problem- the only problem would be stopping. To me this means that no matter what direction, if you just keep moving you will be lead to success.
Laurel Sorenson | Lauren & The Love-In and Babe Booking
I have played to a lot of crowds. I have played to drunken, bearded men clad in collared shirts with the sleeves torn off, and I have played for coffee sipping sophisticates peering up at me over their Warby Parker tortoise-shell frames. My favorite crowd to play for, by far, is a crowd of fun-loving feminists.
