Jimmy Lim, aka LYM, is a Berklee student singer-songwriter based in Boston. Somber and peculiar, his voice and music capture a particular feeling that takes listeners to a different place.

Garrison Evans is a singer-songwriter who uses music as an outlet for his inner troubles and struggles. He particularly focuses on his depression, social anxiety, and sexuality, using his music as a support system. Garrison’s goal is to make sure that his listeners “know that they’re not alone in their experiences” so that they can “analyze the world around them and eventually find solace and catharsis.” Garrison is a left-of-center artist, combining all sorts of genres to create his own unique sound: indie-pop, ambient electronica, and alternative r&b. “He tells stories of emotional turmoil with his signature ambient production, gut-wrenching voice, and introspective sound.” His upcoming EP Innocence and Regrets will perfectly display his message and artist definition.
