TRISTN - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
TRISTN is a singer/songwriter from New York City, known for her distinct voice and character.
She spent her earlier years performing at open-mic shows in New York. Her musical influences
began with rock and electronic music, inspired by artists such as Paramore, Coldplay, and Ellie Goulding. TRISTN began performing live on stage singing cover songs in her home country - Bangkok, Thailand. While attending college in New Jersey, she began songwriting and performing her own compositions at venues in Manhattan before moving to Los Angeles.
During her years on the west coast, she met Emily Wright who encouraged her to pursue a career in pop music. After returning to New York, she teamed up with Carbone, and Kupillas - her current producers/co-writers on this record. TRISTN began sound designing during her years as a filmmaker producing soundtracks. She began to write with classical instruments and cinematic sound samples. She usually writes with acoustic guitar, piano, and vocals layers.
Her music depicts her strong character with common expressions, reflecting today's pop culture. Her debut single Nothing To Say (nothin') was released on October 4th. The music video, which she produced and directed, portrays her fun and witty personality. Her most recent single release, Now You Know, clearly depicts her delicate side with a strong cinematic pop sound. Her official EP January is expected for release in early 2017.
The Running Lights - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Running Lights
The Running Lights are a pop trio from New York consisting of singer/guitarist Mike Squillante, his brother Nick Squillante on keys, and drummer Steve Ranellone.

A Berklee College of Music graduate, Mike has been active in the music industry for the past 5 years releasing both original and cover videos through his YouTube channel of over 3 million total views and 20,000+ subscribers. Following an appearance on NBC's The Voice Season 3 and a successful touring career with Atlantic Records artist Melanie Martinez, Mike left the road to refocus on his own musical endeavors. He formed The Running Lights in the summer of 2015 with his brother Nick. An accomplished audio engineer, Nick was working exclusively with Michael Brauer at Electric Lady Studios on records for artists such as Butch Walker and Bon Jovi. The brothers began creating their first wave of material, Mike taking the lead on songwriting while Nick concentrated on the overall soundscape. They enlisted the help of longtime friend Steve Ranellone, a drummer with several years experience performing all over the tristate area. The trio has since released three well received live covers, garnering over 25,000 views while targeting Mike's substantial YouTube fan base. The band is currently writing and recording new material for release in the near future.
