Eli Lev
Eli Lev
Born in Washington, D.C. and raised by the world, Eli Lev is a traveler, self-proclaimed folk hero, and a passionate musician. Eli’s infectious musicality, commitment to deep grooves, and soulful charisma foster an immersive experience for his audience that moves bodies and hearts. With the full-band-sound of Fortunes Found, his live shows are becoming one of the hottest ticket on the local DMV music scene.

Currently, he maintains a busy schedule performing on what he has playfully dubbed the “Beltway Tour,” which includes an impressive series of appearances at hundreds of venues throughout the Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia area in live music venues, clubs, taverns, festivals, house shows, wineries, art exhibits, markets, resorts, and community events.

“When I’ve been on the road, and I can’t speak the language, I’ve always been able to play a song and suddenly everyone’s singing and dancing. There’s a connection there, and, in that instant, there is a community,” marvels the Washington, D.C.-based artist.
Louisa Hall
Louisa Hall
Louisa Hall has been enamored of music and silliness for as long as she can remember. Described as aggressively joyful or Ella Fitzgerald with a comic edge, she encourages audiences to take life a little less seriously. Louisa has brought her brand of lighthearted (and occasionally creepy) music to stages including the Kennedy Center Millenium stage, The Hamilton Live, the 9:30 Club, and even a Junk boat on Halong Bay, Vietnam.

She is a frequent contributor to The Circus Life podcast, The Capital City Showcase, and a regular guest of the Nine Songwriter Series. In addition to playing ukulele, she is also a music educator specialized in teaching novice "ukers" (which is a term for ukulele players she just made up, unless "uker" is really a thing - she does not need credit).
Justin Trawick
Justin Trawick
Justin Trawick has been performing in the Washington DC area and along the East Coast since 2006, citing musical influences like Bob Schneider, Greensky Bluegrass, The Tallest Man on Earth, G. Love, Old Crow Medicine Show, and David Gray. In June of 2015, Trawick released his first single, “Goodbye”, under the band name "Justin Trawick and the Common Good”; written about the search for direction and belonging in a world that constantly feels one step ahead of you.

Trawick has performed for TedxEast in NYC at the City Winery, TedxPennsylvaniaAvenue in DC at the Newseum, and has opened for over 30 national acts including Suzanne Vega, Wyclef Jean, Brett Dennen, Blues Traveler, Enter The Haggis, Bob Schneider, and Edwin McCain, and shared bills with Dr. Dogg and The Avett Brothers. In February of 2014, Trawick won “Song of the Year” at the Washington Area Music Awards for his song “All the Places That I’ve Been," which can be downloaded on iTunes as a single along with his five other solo records and EPs. Founder of the nationally touring show “The 9 Songwriter Series” and co-founder of “The Circus Life Podcast" with guests such as Kevin Eubanks, Chris Thomas King, Ernie Halter, Yarn, and Snuffy Walden, Trawick has built a brand that extends far beyond his home base in DC.
Chris Cassaday
Chris Cassaday
Chris's unique blend of blues, folk and funk, his crafty songwriting style, his unpredictable set lists, and his thunderous, distinctive voice have gathered him a significant following around his hometown and other parts of the country. He continues to play all up and down the east coast, and looks forward to eventually traveling across the country to share his music with the masses.

Chris has been featured as a guest on many music-centered radio programs, most recently being featured on "Voices From The DMV", and "DC Music Rocks", two radio shows airing on 96.7 FM in Arlington and the Washington DC area. Chris was also interviewed and performed on CBS radio's "Weekend Round-Up" podcast. The performance/interview aired on 7 different CBS radio stations around the country.​
