Cold Specks - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Cold Specks
Ladan Hussein, known on stage as Cold Specks has returned with her most personal work yet. The artist recognized for her twistedly enthralling lyrics and distinctive soulful voice, has dug deep and returned to her roots. In this masterful body of work, Cold Specks intimately explores her identity as a Somali-Canadian woman. She's unveiled and allowed herself to stretch her palette thematically. The rawness that's deemed Cold Specks a dark soul, has revealed itself to be a cathartic after glow, illuminating the sort of light born through healing.

Like waves thrashing in a chaotic sea in the middle of nowhere, Fool's Paradise encapsulates the naturalness of existing during difficult times. We find Ladan rejoicing the survival of those she loves while mourning for the sorrow that continues to linger after it has beckoned its doom. Far gentler than her electrifying sophomore Neuroplasticity and her midnight debut I Predict A Graceful Expulsion, Cold Specks has honed her artistic agency and has invited you to bear witness.
Daniel Wayne - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Daniel Wayne
Daniel Wayne has been taking New York by storm the last year. Over the last year this Cincinnati transplant has created quite a buzz based on his subtlety powerful live performances. You are sold on Daniel Wayne's talent and potential as well as his infectious charisma in the first nanoseconds that you hear his powerful and gifted voice. Daniel's music is simple, raw, at times dark, at times inviting, but always with a sense of vulnerability not heard from a contemporary male vocalist for some time. There aren't many artists that possess the talent to mesmerize the listeners to absolute silence and command them to listen to a voice that is both angelic, as well as full of power and range. If you are looking for the next big voice, look no further than Daniel Wayne. He has recorded a 4 song EP available on iTunes and has opened this year for SOLD OUT SHOWS by The Heartless Bastards, Jessica Lea Mayfield, The Head and The Heart, Jessica Lea Mayfield, and Blitzen Trapper.
