Louisa Wendorff | Los Angeles native Louisa Wendorff sings and plays the piano, guitar and ukulele. She began writing and recording her first EP while attending school at Belmont University for Songwriting and Music Business. In December 2014, Taylor Swift discovered a mashup video of her songs, “Blank Space" and "Style," as performed by Wendorff. Swift promoted the video across her social media. Wendorff’s YouTube video instantly went viral, with over 17 million views in the first month alone.

Ryn Weaver | Ryn Weaver of San Diego grew up with a passion for singing and writing songs. She attended New York University to study theater, although she never had the intentions of becoming an actress, and instead continued to pursue her passion for music. In New York, she met producer Benny Blanco. Blanco and Passion Pit's Michael Angelakos worked together to produce Weaver's debut album, "The Fool." Weaver’s breakthrough single on the album — "OctaHate" — shot to No. 1 on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart soon after its release in June 2014. Photo Credit: Jason Merritt/Getty Images
Lindsay Foote | With her ear-catching melodies and heartfelt lyrics, Lindsay Foote is making a name for herself on the Toronto scene. In 2011, she released her EP, “A Better View,” followed by her full-length album, “From the Blue” in January, 2016. She plays frequently in the Toronto area with her band, Lindsay Foote & Co., garnering attention for their distinct soundscape: a delicate acoustic bed surrounded by lush vocal harmonies and a flare of chamber strings. Lindsay’s music is above all about storytelling, and trying to express the highs and lows of the human experience as honestly as possible. Her most recent song, "Monster" was submitted to CBC Searchlight: a Canada-wide songwriting contest. Vote here to help promote it. Voting for the first round closes April 20, 2016.
