Tori used to come up with her own little weird inventions as a kid, and her favorite toy was her art easel. She studied interior design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, but wasn't in love with the industry, so took some time off to figure out what to do with her life. She started working for a machining company in Amsterdam, NY as an enginerd, where she combines her art and math skills to draw and draft all sorts of things. Thanks to a hernia repair surgery and going bonkers from being on bed rest, she took a painting class in Troy, NY, which kick-started her desire to do more drawing and painting. She now owns a business as an independent artist, and is currently attending welding school to add to her arsenal of skills. Aside from painting and welding, Tori is an avid swimmer and connoisseur of craft beers.
On The Walls Now!
It's exceedingly rare these days to see an old-fashionedone man band in the style of say,Jessie "Lone Cat" Fuller, but Mr. L.B. Walker is the realthing. He straps on a guitar, throws a harp in the rack andsticks a tambourine beneath his foot, counts four and theblues begin. It's charming, anachronistic andtotally cool, all at the same time.

Dan Berggren’s roots are firmly in the Adirondacks where he was raised but his music has branched out across many borders. The award-winning musician and educator grew up on the land farmed by his mother's family for generations and has worked in the woods with forest ranger and survey crews. Hearing stories and songs from local friends and neighbors, Dan has developed a style that captures the spirit of the mountains.
Dan has entertained audiences throughout New York State, from Vermont to Kentucky and Texas, and overseas in the British Isles, Eastern Europe and Central Africa. Some of his songs have been symphonically arranged, giving Dan the opportunity to perform with orchestras in Fredonia, Ithaca, Syracuse, West Virginia and Indiana.
His original music has been featured nationally on public radio and television, earning praise from near and far. Visit Dan's website

“Flawless, seemingly effortless playing and singing”
“Once again, Annie the Hedonists transport
us back to an age when heartache, boozing, and
all sorts of romantic mayhem seems like one big stylish adventure. On their new album,Women Be Wise,
Annie struts right to the heart of each sassy, nostalgic song and gives us a piece of her mind in a voice
that sits comfortably alongside the greats of the American jazz tradition. The album is packed with flawless, seemingly effortless playing and singing.
--”Sarah Craig, Manager, Caffe Lena
“Annie’s versatile, vintage tinged voice is the perfect match for the Hedonists’ ace musicianship”
“Jazz, blues, country, folk, bluegrass ... it's all here. Annie Rosen's versatile, vintage-tinged voice is the perfect match for the Hedonists' ace musicianship."
