Brittany  Ann Tranbaugh (pronounced TRAN-baw) is a Philadelphia-based songwriter  whose queer Americana heartbreaker “Kiss You” won Song of the Year in  the 2021 John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Tranbaugh has been writing  songs and playing shows as a side gig since she was a teenager, but in  February 2023, at 31 years old, she finally quit her office job to  pursue a full-time career in music. Her newest release is a self-titled  EP produced by Grammy-winner Tyler Chester which showcases Tranbaugh in  her new era: energetic, self-assured, surrounded by her beloved musical  community, and more commanding as a vocalist and writer than ever  before.

Every time Sadie  Gustafson-Zook (pronounced GUST-of-sin Zook, rhyming with “book”)  carves a linoleum block, sews a pencil case out of scraps, or admires  the way the ink in her Pilot G-2 glides over her journal, she thinks, “I  should be doing this all the time.” The act of creating something  tangible is the air Sadie breathes. Her songwriting is the same- weaving  an internal dialogue, the stories she tells herself, warm melodies and  clever chords into something real, something she can physically feel  with her hands and her throat. And chances are that you’ll be able to  feel them too. Sadie’s songs have been endorsed by some of the most  respected songwriting contests in the country, winning Kerrville Folk  Festival’s 2022 New Folk Contest (as well as placing as a finalist in  2020), earning second place at the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest’s Songwriter  Showcase, and winning first place at the NewSong + LEAF Songwriting  Contest. Sadie has been featured on the Basic Folk podcast and on Folk  Alley.
