Paddlebots represents the collective vision and music stylings of Kortez Buckner and Haruki Hakoyama. Born out of a series of YouTube covers, the duo’s intricate and unique arranging style and high-energy performance quickly gained viral popularity. Inspired by the support of their growing fanbase, Paddlebots was created to provide a creative outlet for Kortez and Haruki’s original work. In partnership with their friends Ethan, Andy, Dominic, Mike, and Zak, Paddlebots has curated a unique sound marked by head-bobbing grooves, soulful vocals, soaring solos, and righteous horns that has been coined #ProgressiveSoulPop, and they cannot wait to share their passion with audiences everywhere.

Chirp: Based in Ann Arbor, MI, Chirp is a four-piece band that does its fair share of genre-hopping, but often plays in the styles of progressive rock/funk and jazz-fusion. Officially formed in Fall 2015, Chirp mixes originals and covers into their live sets and puts together grabbing, dynamic shows. Though their music features many technical and progressive elements, an equal emphasis is put on grooving and keeping people moving.

Their fresh and unique sound has taken them across Michigan and the surrounding Midwest to play a wide array of venues and festivals. They released an EP called “Live From Brownstown” in 2016, and video of a live session recorded at Willis Sound in Willis, MI in 2017. Both of which have been met with great reception and have helped to build an enthusiastic fan base. Music is available on all major streaming & downloading platforms. Catch Chirp live in 2017 and stay on the lookout for a full-length release!

Jacob Sigman: Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Jacob Sigman combines influences of Motown, Soul, and Contemporary Pop music to create something both new and familiar.
