About The Trees
The Trees are a rock band from Indianapolis, IN consisting of members Dan Stempky, Riley Castellano, Luke Farrow, and Will Bright.

In May of 2016 the band recorded their self-titled demo album in front of a live studio audience.

About Fern Murphy
Fern Murphy is Indie Chillwave trio based out of Indianapolis, IN. Founded in January of 2018, the group has performed to a tumultuous reception all throughout the Midwest. With their debut single “Black Saturday” and follow up “Midwestern”, Fern Murphy was able to establish a loyal fanbase in their home city and neighboring cities through consistent radio play. The band is expected to release their debut E.P. early 2019.
Brandon Wadley is a songwriter and performer writing and creating his own earthy brand of indie rock and leading a four piece band out of Indianapolis, IN. With a disarming voice, cathartic lyricism and warm, powerful guitar playing, Brandon cites 90s alternative rock, the lyrical ferocity of hardcore punk, and roots in Appalachian folk to unite a delightfully raw and intricate collection of melodies making for an inviting, adventurous performance. Lyrical themes gravitate toward freedom, redemption, and searching for wholeness. Seeing Brandon perform live is like having coffee with an old friend on a morning-lit patio, except the songs are now listening to you.
