Jack Waugh says, “I play music because it’s able to transcend societal barriers and take listeners, as well as myself, to a place of units and infinite consciousness.” He is an artist from Washington D.C. and has performed at venues at events such as the 9:30 Club, The Mid Atlantic Jazz Festival, DROM, Le chat Noir, Pianos among others.
His debut release, “Autobiography” just came out recently, and we are huge fans. The production is ominous at the beginning, as it invites the listener in to prepare for his vocals! Theirs a ton of emotion in his vocals, and you can tell what Jack Waugh means when he told us, “The song sends the listener imagery of memory, nostalgia, and unrest- making it an all too relatable anthem for it’s release during a global quarantine” As the world is slowly coming back to normal, check out this track and get excited for what comes next!

When Jamie Darken first began writing the songs that would appear on his debut solo EP, Burial, he imagined he was crafting demos for Cherry Ames, a local Washington DC area indie-rock band that Darken performs as vocalist, guitarist, and bassist. With Cherry Ames on hiatus amidst the global shutdown and performing in venues unavailable as an option, Darken’s drive to make progress with the ideas on his own eventually brought the tracks to the place where it simply felt right to release as his own project. The result is five songs written, produced, and performed by Darken, with the exception of leading single “This Could Be Your Home” co-written with fellow DC area musician Christopher Mathews-Larsen.
