"Emily Myren is making her mark on the Indianapolis music scene. A
sweet, beautiful emotional mark. And thus far, of course, it is amazing. With youth firmly on her side, it will be very
interesting to see where this lady goes with her style. Currently in the studio, Emily needs to be heard live. There
is a certain level of passion and grace that fills the room as she performs." -Brother Brother Radio Cast
Pablo grow up in the "heartland" of the Midwest, He started
playing music in his early teens.....High School dances....under 21 clubs....you get the jist. After High School came an
apprenticeship and a career as a pipefitter. Soon after he was traveling the southern and western states working and
playing gigs. It was during much of this time that he found many of his experiences (stories and tales) to write songs.
On a trip back to Indiana in the 70's he met and became good friends with one of Indiana's finest singer/songwriters, Bill
Wilson, who became his mentor. He has spread his bag full of tales and songs over the past years from Denali Alaska to
Tootsie Orchard Lounge in Nashville to Mexico. As an interpreter of the songs he has learned along the way. He has
added his own style, his brand of humor, always heartfelt, but mostly just about life as we all know it.
Joy Caroline Mills is a songwriter, composer, recording engineer,
multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer. She recently graduated from Ball State with a degree in Music Media Production.

Keele University. The 6-song compilation charted at #4 on the NoiseTrade Pop Charts. Much to critics’ surprise, Mills wrote,
performed, produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered her record entirely herself.

was included on the Beneflint Compilation CD to help water relief efforts in Flint, Michigan.
