Live Music: Brianna Kocka

Brianna is a singer, songwriter, musician and producer based out of Minneapolis, MN. She has a broad and diverse musical background, and while each project has had it’s own distinct sound, Kocka is best known for her honesty through songwriting—she believes that music is a form of give and take, that lyrics and melodies are an important part of shared life, and that we use these creative spaces to engage in our humanness together.

Brianna grew up in a suburb of the Twin Cities, teaching herself to play guitar at age twelve, and subsequently started to write songs soon thereafter. She released her first album, “Write by Night,” in 2010 under her own name. This album was a collection of songs related to the end of an important relationship in her life, and the joys of living in the Maritimes of Canada, where she lived from 2007 - 2011.

In the spring of 2011 Kocka moved back to Minneapolis and created her alter-ego, CAETANI, and released an EP of five indie-rock songs (“The Black EP”) to acclaim in the local music scene. The five song EP was an introspective look at five specific relationships in her life, each song representing a different person, including herself.

In the winter of 2012 she and a group of friends created the Psychedelic/Trip Hop group Sun Gods to Gamma Rays, and over three years released an EP (“The Water, The Wave”) and one full length album (“A Ghost to Find”), while playing extensively throughout the Twin Cities and Midwest. Each of these albums are filled with lyrics about Brianna’s divorce from organized religion, as well as a newfound look at feminism and sensuality.

Needing a break from city life, Brianna moved to an island off the east coast to work and live for ten months. While there she began playing guitar again, and out poured an album's worth of Folk/Americana songs related to the hardships of life, the realities of marriage, and living in isolation. Kocka again lives in the Twin Cities and released her second studio album, “Dreamlife,” on May 1, 2018 on Suntanman Records.

Kocka has played 1000+ person venues opening for big touring bands (The Cult, Marc Cohn), has sold out premier local venues in the Twin Cities, and has also opened for mid-level touring acts at First Avenue (Elliot Brood, Wintersleep). She has had her songs featured on General Hospital and 20/20. Brianna spends most of her time on the road touring, but when she is not on the road she can be found in the studio working on her own new music, singing background vocals on other musicians projects, or playing acoustic or electric guitar for other Twin Cities artists.

Live Music: Method of Escape

Method of Escape is a literal method of escape for Thai Nguyen, serving as a vessel to express feelings and experiences in a musical context. In the studio, it is solely driven by Thai with intermittent help from friends, but it morphs into a different machine in a live setting. Ideologically and sonically influenced by Nine Inch Nails, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Scorpions, and Gary Moore among others.

Live Music: Anna Stine

anna stine.jpg

Anna Stine is an indie folk artist creating music that ponders the trials and triumphs that make us most human. Her lyrics and melodies are driven by a soulful authenticity that invites audiences to connect to their own stories. Anna harmoniously blends together her love of honest folk songs and haunting jazz melodies, while drawing upon the influence of powerful female artists such as Billie Holiday, Bonnie Raitt, Norah Jones and Laura Marling. Anna's experiences as a music therapist have given her a unique understanding of the ways that music can enrapture and transform us, and she seeks to manifest this through her intentional presence and performance. In her debut album "Company of Now", set to be released summer 2018, Anna delves into the delicate dance of being present in the midst of growth and discomfort. Through songs that speak to both suffering and self-acceptance, she encourages listeners to stand tall, breathe easy, and step from the ground they're standing on.
