Socorra is a singer-songwriter from the San Jose, California. She is a drummer turned guitar player, bringing her blues-driven indie-rock sound to the Bay Area. Suffering from stage fright at a young age, she didn’t start performing in front of people until she was 18 years old when she was recruited to be in an acapella group her freshman year of college. Throughout her college years she explored songwriting and performing more before joining the Peace Corps in Morocco in 2010. During her volunteer service she had opportunities to perform all over Morocco, discovering ways to connect with people through music.
After serving in the Peace Corps, she took an internship at an independent record label where she was more inspired to step out from behind the scenes and put out her own music. She released her EP, Break in 2017 and has opened up for acts like Blues Traveler and Fantastic Negrito. Heavily influenced by everything from Motown and Led Zeppelin to HAIM and Sheryl Crow, she strives to bring soulful performances to every show.
Singer-songwriter Jesse Bryant is a born-and-raised "Florida Man," but now he's bringing his solo acoustic swampfunk from the Florida bogs to the San Francisco Bay.
Drawing inspiration from Jim Croce, Dave Matthews Band, and Little Feat, Jesse lets jam-band grooves simmer beneath his powerful storytelling.
Jesse's guitar ranges from twangy to elegant and his lyrics are quirky, but honest. His music ventures from romantic country ballads, to lighthearted folk songs, to front-porch blues rockers, but he draws a line through them all that reminds the listeners: life is tough, but damn, is it good.
