Faced with insurmountable odds, Sonoma County native Simoné Mosely, has pushed though obstacles most never mentally make it out of. With the boost of the 1980s hip hop golden age and the pressures of her environment, she found a way to turn her obstacles into opportunities. Utilizing figures such as Erykah Badu, India Arie and Lauren hill she shaped her sound. She strives to combine her sultry voice, poetic insight and experience to bring healing and a sense of culture to all who dive into the realm of self reflection. She invites you to be a part of her growth, basque in her relate-ability and shine on.
Named after a town of 19 in the Northern Great Plains, Ismay represents the work of singer/songwriter Cowbirl artist Avery Hellman. Just as with the name, Ismay seeks to uncover ways in which the place we live changes us, and how the natural world provides deeper meaning. For Ismay, a life lived in rural California connects them with the landscape, providing a freedom to express gender identity, and the space to create music. Mystical lyricism, ethereal vocals, and dynamic fingerpicking on guitar are the defining features of their music. With works covering wild horses to wildfire, Ismay’s sound is unmistakably connected to the landscape in which they live.
Born and raised in Santa Rosa, CA, Tru Lyric has come a long way from making music with friends while attending Analy High School. He found refuge in writing lyrics while battling his depression and anxiety and was able to grow as a musician helping others who battle with the same disease. His passion and love for music stems from what he grew up listening to during his childhood: The Temptations, Notorious B.I.G., and Frank Sinatra. As his view of Hip-Hop transformed, Tru Lyric began working with musicians from across the county to infuse Jazz, Gospel, Rock, Blues, and even Salsa into his music.

Advice from Nick Cave
Do you know about Nick Cave’s thoughtful and totally on point advice site?
Here’s a wise response to a youthful question from the December 2021 edition of Nick’s Red Hand Files…
I’m sixteen and have just recently gotten really into your work. I was wondering: what advice would you give to your sixteen year old self and why?
TAYA, LOWER SACKVILLE, CANADA
This is an excellent question and I am often asked it, but I find it a very difficult question to answer.
The difficulty is that I am, in fact, my sixteen-year-old self, just half a century older. Not only that but, sitting here at the kitchen table, with the sun streaming through the window, answering your excellent question, my older self, the current destination of my younger self, is mostly happy.
However, my older self is protective and instinctively wants to warn my sixteen-year-old self not to make the mistakes that I know from experience are going to cause him pain. But, you see, this older and more experienced self also knows that the painful things are often the things that ultimately give substance and meaning to life. My older self knows that life’s mistakes are destiny’s way of laying the tracks that will bring my younger self to the place where I am at this very moment — the mostly happy place, where I sit, with the sun coming through the window, writing an answer to your excellent question.
Have a great life, Taya, it’s all ahead of you.
