Lily DeTaeye is a young, powerhouse singer-songwriter hailing from Des Moines. Her emotive, soulful voice is reminiscent of Ingrid Michaelson, with a diverse musical styling echoing the Lumineers. Lily is a delight whose performance leaves audiences wanting more! www.lilydetaeye.com
MoTide is a collaborative musical project from the works of the thunderous duo, Jeremy Franklin and Gabe Scheid. The project is inspired by organic instruments and music as well as forward thinking pop, hip hop and jazz.
