:: Ruby & The Reckless::
Ruby and The Reckless is Ruby Jane, Austin Simmons, Miggy Milla, Chris Copeland and Sam Powell.
Fiddle prodigy Ruby Jane has been a fixture on the Austin roots scene since she was eleven years old, playing with everyone from Willie to Lady Gaga along the way. Now twenty-one, Ruby has spent the last two years redefining herself as a songwriter and vocalist, assembling a band of young players whose musicianship matches her own.

:: Jasmine Sankaran::
Jasmine Sankaran began writing songs in her bedroom, shrouded in the obscurity of Ventura County’s suburban labyrinth. After graduating from Berkeley with a degree in Creative Writing, she realized she had written more songs in college than short stories…From there she developed her sound with punk angst and melancholia at its core surrounded by ambient melodies and heavy textures. Her lyrics often combine the mysticism of her Vietnamese-Indian culture with the heartbreak and reality of growing up.
