False Harbor is an Indie rock band from Lansing, Michigan, currently based in Grand Rapids. The group consists of newest members Kenny Birge and Chris Orr, as well as Ayden Morton and David Adrian, who formed the band in 2018. Their music has a psychedelic ambience that bridges lyrical phrases into long melodic sequences and transitions. Many of their songs often reference Michigan's Upper Peninsula and the Great Lakes. 


Ditch Lily (James Champion, Leah Sienkowksi, Zac Abid, & Frankie Spring) are an oddball folk band. Oddball for obvious (?) reasons, and folk in the sense that they are people (folks) telling human stories about human concerns. Sometimes that involves a pine tree or geese. A moon, a waterfall. They consider the peripherals of life to be filled with strange and necessary magic. That’s what they hope you’ll notice in their songs. 


Lucas Powell is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist musician born and based in mid-Michigan. Inspired by artists like Noah Gundersen, Phoebe Bridgers, Joshua James, and Sufjan Stevens, Lucas uses autobiographical storytelling to invite the audience to collectively sing, celebrate, grieve, and introspect.

Powell released his debut full-length album Michigan in August 2021 with contribution from Taylor Greenshields (Fundamental Sound Company) and engineering from Dan Zasadny (Eureka Records). Michigan was preceded by two singles: Firmament (released June 2021), which was featured on Audiotree Presents’ MichSongs playlist, and The Chippewa River (released July 2021).

In 2022, Powell released a new single, “Victimless Crime.” Inspired by the story of M.J. Eberhart, the oldest man to walk the entire Appalachian trail, “Victimless Crime” is a peace seeking, high-paced road trip anthem about letting go.

Powell has played numerous live performances across Michigan and the upper midwest including Detroit’s historic Magic Bag and The Pike Room. In 2021, Powell was featured in Old Main Record’s “BareBones” virtual music festival, and in 2022 opened for Vista Kicks, Yellow Ostrich, and bugsy.
