Randy Stonehill
Randy Stonehill is an American singer/songwriter best known as one of the so-called fathers of contemporary Christian music. His music is primarily folk rock in the style of James Taylor, but he has assayed other styles, with various albums focused on new wave, pop rock, roots rock, and childrens music. His live concerts, more so than most of his albums, have a strong comedic element. Stonehills first album, Born Twice was released in 1971, with financial help from Pat Boone. The album, primarily a live performance, was recorded for a mere $800, and according to Stonehill, it sounds like every penny of it! A year later, Stonehill made his film acting debut in The Blob sequel, Beware! The Blob (also known as Son of Blob), with Cindy Williams. Also that year, Stonehill, with Todd Fishkind and Keith Green, wrote Until Your Love Broke Through, which would be recorded by numerous artists over the years including Stonehill himself, Phil Keaggy, Russ Taff and others. He made a cameo appearance in the 1973 Billy Graham film Time to Run, performing his song I Love You. In 1976, Stonehill released the Larry Norman produced Welcome to Paradise, with Andy Johns (The Who, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin) doing the engineering. This became a landmark album for the songwriter and was voted 3rd most important contemporary Christian album in a mid-1980s poll of Christian music critics. Norman would also produce the followup, The Sky Is Falling, which would start a twenty year Stonehill tradition of recording two consecutive albums with any given producer. That tradition continued through two albums with Terry Scott Taylor (including the landmark, Equator), two albums with Barry Kaye, two albums with Dave Perkins, two albums with Mark Heard, and two more albums with Taylor until the routine was broken with 1995s Lazarus Heart. In 1994, Stonehill teamed up with other artists to pay tribute to longtime friend Mark Heard who had died in 1992 after suffering a heart attack during a performance at the Cornerstone Festival. Stonehill contributed his rendition of Heards Look Over Your Shoulder for the CD Strong Hand of Love (later reissued on the double disc collection, Orphans of God.) In 1994, Stonehill started StreetLevel Records. The label released Julie Millers Invisible Girl, and Stonehills own Lazarus Heart. By 1998, StreetLevel Records had been shuttered, inaugurating a period of label-hopping. Thirst was released on Brentwood Records. In 2001, Stonehill released a childrens record using the name Uncle Stonehill, entitled Uncle Stonehills Hat on the Holy Sombrero label. Also that year, Stonehill embarked on the Legends Tour, with Daniel Amos, The 77s and Sweet Comfort Band. During the tours performance at Cornerstone 01, Stonehill was joined on stage by Larry Norman for the song Good News. 2002s Edge of the World (this time on Fair Oaks Records) followed, which brought together a number of musical friends including Phil Keaggy, Barry McGuire, Noel Paul Stookey, Love Song, Phil Madeira, Mike Roe, Russ Taff, and Sara Groves, and Larry Norman. This album marked the first time Stonehill and Norman appeared together on a recording since 1980s The Sky is Falling. In 2006, Keaggy and Stonehill released a live concert on DVD and CD in support of the Compassion International Christian relief agency with which both men had long been associated. In 2006, Stonehill continued to record and tour around the world, primarily as a solo act with acoustic guitar. His sterling sense of humour comes through in his live performance as it does in studio recordings such as American Fastfood and Shut De Do. He also toured in Australia. Stonehill also spent time writing country music with a number of veteran songwriters in Nashville, including the Warren Brothers. In 2008 Stonehill completed, Paradise Sky, a re-make of eleven of his classic songs from the 70s that were used in the film Fallen Angel: The Outlaw Larry Norman directed by David Di Sabatino. Stonehill finished an album with Phil Keaggy titled Mystery Highway that was released in June, 2009 and at the Visionary Awards in November 2010 Stonehill was inducted into the Christian Music Hall of Fame along with Babbie Mason, Bruce Carrol, Newsboys, Third Day, Steve Green, Whiteheart, and Bloodgood.

Berklee Summer in the CitySleeping Lion / iives

Boston-based Sleeping Lion is a downtempo electronic duo comprising Nate Flaks and Noah Longworth McGuire. The duo blends mellow vibes and vocal layers with futuristic elements to create their unique sound. With their tracks spreading through Spotify playlists and music blogs, Sleeping Lion is becoming a group that will be hard to sleep on.

Reminiscent of the dreamy soundscapes heard in Beach House, iives's music is tender but capable of unleashing energy in the tradition of artists such as Jack White and the National. The band play psychedelic folk rock in songs that flow like streams of consciousness. Lush harmonies akin to those of Bon Iver weave through metallic guitars and dense drums, creating walls of sound that engulf the listener in waves.

Monolord - Beastmaker, Sweat Lodge, Phantom Glue
This event is 18 and over

Formed in 2013, this band is made up of Swedish rockers Thomas Jäger, Esben Willems, and Mika Häkki. Both Jäger and Willems were in the Swedish boogie rock band Marulk and started Monolord as a side project as a way to play some more heavier tunes, they quickly added Häkki (from The Don Darlings, ex Rotten Sound) and realized that they had something very special between the 3 of them. Monolord became very real very quickly and recording commenced in early 2013. Thomas Jäger had not sung in a band before this one, but you would never know it by the sound of it. Having met RidingEasy Records head hauncho Daniel Hall over instagram in May of 2014 when the record was ready to listen to, RidingEasy was one of the first that it was sent to and picked up the band immediately after hearing the finished album Empress Rising that then was released worldwide on April 1. The second album, Vænir, was released worldwide April 28th.
