About the featured artists below, photos attached.


VERONICA MAY
Veronica May is a unique talent, equally skilled and adventurous on guitars (acoustic and electric) as she is in her dynamic vocal style. Her original songs reflect themes of compassion, imagination and living exuberantly with courage and humor. Living mindfully with Bipolar 1 Disorder and serving as a Music Therapist have given May valuable understandings she shares in service for all who navigate that difficult terrain. Her music awakens the mind, opens the heart, and brings new clarity to our shared human experiences.


DANIELLE LOPRESTI
Danielle is a veteran of the Southern California music scene who's shared the stage with Jamie Foxx, Metric, Cake, Talib Kweli, Juliette Lewis, Jonatha Brooke, among many others. A seasoned session singer, voice actor and songwriter, Danielle's work has been featured on Sony Jazz albums, as animated and offscreen characters on MTV and VH1 productions, multiple independent films and most notably as the featured original singer-songwriter in 1996's, "The Nutty Professor." In the city of San Diego, Danielle became an icon for her outspoken social justice related music, art and event organizing. Co-founder/ Producer of the decade old, San Diego IndieFest, Danielle's talent is as deep as her passion for expanding our horizons and bettering our world.

Along with Danielle LoPresti, she is Co-creator/Producer of San Diego IndieFest and Durga Sound Studio.


KIRA DAHLGREN LANCASTER

Kira's passion for art, humanity, children, and extinguishing media/political- induced fear and spreading love has woven a colorful career tapestry that ranges from actor to filmmaker, mom, activist, businesswoman and philanthropist. From the stages of New York, London, Los Angeles and regional theaters to television and film sets with the likes of Ben Kingsley and Vince Vaughn to Story Consultant on the award-winning documentary, "Race to Nowhere", Kira currently moves between motherhood, acting experiments, her child-focused business, her own documentary film and building homes in Nepal for earthquake victims.
