Todd Hembrook

Todd Hembrook is a soul singer who has toured the United States and Europe extensively over the past two decades. Projects fronted with Hembrook have opened for the likes of Chuck Berry, Desmond Dekker and The Foo Fighters. When other teens were discovering punk rock, Todd rebelled in his own way by forging a love affair with the voices of Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Levi Stubbs and other hit-makers who defined R&B music of the 1960’s and 70’s. Todd Hembrook has been singing since he was knee high and professionally for over 20 years, working to insert himself into the lineage of his legendary vocal heroes.

Brittany Lee Moffitt

The worldly experience that Chicago singer/songwriter Brittany Lee Moffitt has under her belt is astonishing for any artist, let alone one at the age of 27. Having performed vocally with Earth, Wind & Fire (not to mention jazz artists Dana Hall and Mina Agossi), Moffitt regularly performs as a professional vocalist in several projects, ranging from The Ron Bedal Orchestra to touring prog-rock band Sonus Umbra. With every project, she expands her vocal experience and repertoire, exploring various styles and techniques in her unique way for each performance she delivers.

Brittany Lee Moffitt released a debut solo EP of original material on December 5th, 2014, titled "Acceptance". This collection of songs showcases both her songwriting talents as well as her in-studio vocal and instrumental accomplishments. Brittany Lee Moffitt looks forward to sharing more of her own music, but no matter the song, as long as she's singing, she's satisfied.

Gina Bloom

Born into a family with a legacy of musical talent, Gina Bloom began singing as a child and has been channeling the soulful sounds of Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Janis Joplin ever since. While she has an eclectic range of influences, she cut her teeth performing the rhythm and blues classics of Motown, Stax and Chess Records. As the lead singer of Chicago band, The Congregation since 2009, Gina has performed original soul music across the country in venues ranging from churches to stadiums and night clubs to music festivals and has appeared on televised programs on ABC, WGN, BBC and the Science Channel. She has been honored to open for legendary acts including Mavis Staples, Wilco, Buddy Guy and The Flaming Lips. Whether singing soul classics, standard ballads, rock and roll, or traditional hymns, Gina impresses with her distinctive timbre that evokes the sounds of the female singers of the Great American Songbook, the sultry sounds of first ladies of R&B and the powerful belting voices of modern performers such as Adele and Amy Winehouse.
