Shoffy
Born and raised in the City of Angels, soulful producer/vocalist/instrumentalist Shoffy champions electronic-based Pop/R&B fused with guitar and smooth vocals. By day, Shoffy, real name Alex Shofler, worked as a financial analyst until recently -- now, he's pursuing music full-time. Writing and producing since age 14, Shofler has jumped from different projects and bands, until embarking on his solo career.

His first wide release under the Shoffy moniker came in November 2015 with single "Takes My Body Higher" ft. Lincoln Jesser off his EP conversations in the a.m. The single spread virally and reached 33 million plays (and growing) on Spotify and 13 Million video plays on YouTube. Achieving this organically without any promotion, "Take My Body Higher" also claimed a spot on the Billboard Hot Dance/Electronic Charts for 12 weeks, peaking at #19.

Following this success, Shofler released a new EP, somewhere between nostalgia and paradise, leading with "Home," a track he wrote and co-produced. All of the songs on the seven-track EP are written, and most produced or co-produced, by Shofler, and feature him playing various instruments throughout. Standout cuts include "Home" and "Movin On" -- a beautiful and simple testimony to a love lost, written originally with only his guitar and vocal. somewhere between nostalgia and paradise also features collaborations with fellow hype-worthy peers including Jack LNDN on "Better Off Here," TA?CHES on "Eat Your Friends," and RKCB as co-producer and co-writer on "Home."
Olivia Noelle - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Olivia Noelle
Brooklyn singer/songwriter Olivia Noelle pulls absolutely no punches. She’ll call out an ex with her middle finger raised over nineties Pop/R&B production in one breath while urging for equality with a powerhouse vocal run in the next. Her forthcoming music on Columbia Records is direct and unapologetic, leaving politeness and cute metaphors at the door.

Born in Queens and raised in Beaverton, OR, Olivia can recall joining choir at six years old. Early concerts by the likes of Toni Braxton and Destiny’s Child proved transformative as she picked up the guitar in high school. For her senior year, Olivia relocated to Los Angeles and embedded herself in the city’s songwriter network with established topliners, such as Whitney Phillips [Anderson .Paak, Fifth Harmony]. After logging five years in the City of Angels, she traded coasts again and settled in New York where she joined forces with producer Lauv. In 2015, Olivia Noelle self-released “Faking It,” which cracked 250K streams with no traditional promotion and was featured on Spotify’s coveted “New Music Friday” playlist in six countries, including the US and UK.

“Made Of Gold” introduces her with a bang. The song slips from a nineties-style dancefloor crescendo into the head-turning hook—“You don’t see I’m made of fucking gold, so let me break it down in words you’ll know. If I ain’t part of your plan, then tonight it’s you and your hand, baby.”Other songs, such as “High For Me,” flaunt her show-stopping falsetto.

“You hear me in my music – I’m not trying to be anyone else,” Olivia explains. “My songs are conversational, so I love when people can directly relate to the content, the feeling, and the emotion. Over the last two years, I’ve focused on being unapologetically myself and I hope to empower people to do the same.”
