Jay Van Raalte

Jay Van Raalte is a guitarist, songwriter and singer from Charleston, South Carolina. Jay works fast. Within six months of picking up guitar, she found herself on stage alongside Grammy winner Buddy Guy at age 14. In 2015 Jay co-founded Jump Castle Riot while in high school. The band played shows from South Carolina to Connecticut and received frequent recognition as Charleston’s Up and Coming Band of the Year (2016), Blues Band of the Year (2016, 2017, 2018), Rock Band of the Year (2019), with Jay named Charleston’s Guitarist of the Year (2018) and a Reverend Guitars featured artist. Jay has since released a solo debut, Linearity, with a full length follow up in the works, and plays behind other artists as a guitar for hire. Jay “has a willingness to try on different musical styles, production techniques, chord progressions – to be a creative omnivore.

Salti Ray

Salti Ray blends a myriad of musical styles, including folk, blues, and pop, in their traditional rock-influenced roots. Salti Ray was founded in South Carolina by members and lifelong friends Mary Norris and Noelle Taylor. Norris and Taylor grew up together in Charleston, SC, where they began writing music together as 12 year-olds. Salti Ray is known for performing an expansive style of music – “Norris’ powerful voice and stage presence and Taylor’s stunning lead guitar skills served as a through-line that connected their disparate influences,” says the Greenville Journal. Sweet Static also describes the band as having, “rounded out into a live behemoth, staying busy and melting faces wherever they go.” Salti Ray released their debut EP, The Right Thing EP, on September 25th, 2020. Their newest single, Luxury, comes out on July 9th, 2021.
