Alita Moses
Making her mark on the Philadelphia jazz scene and beyond, Alita Moses has been critically acclaimed as one of the city's young artists to watch. Since winning the 2014 Montreux Jazz Vocal Competition in Montreux, Switzerland, she returned there to attend the 1st Montreux Jazz Academy working with greats such as Patti Austin, Sonny Emory, Lee Ritenour and Charles Lloyd. In July, she returned to open for Al Jarreau in the 2015 Montreux Jazz Festival.

Her ambitiousness is evident in her work with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and The Philadelphia Pops Orchestra as well as solo artists and bands such as Larry McKenna, Matt McAndrew, ILL DOOTS, Steve Davis, Joel Frahm and many others. A recent graduate of the University of the Arts, Alita was a recipient of The President's Award. In 2016 she will tour with a New York-based pianist, Walter Fischbacher, and his quartet throughout Europe. Whether on the stage or in the studio, she brings a natural warmth to each performance and astounds audiences with grace and a musical maturity beyond her years.
Jessie Davis
Jessie Davis has always had music in her blood; it's taken many complicated surgeries to remedy the malady.  Based in Brooklyn, Jessie Davis' eclectic sound is best described as Future Soul. Founding "The Nebraska Jones Experiment" as a one woman show on a subway platform, she has since expanded the project into a collective of musicians from all over the world, bringing original and popular music to life in an all-you-can-dream special.  The experiment has manifested itself into her 3rd album release.  However the project is more than just a record.  It is a collective of music lovers from around the world who have contributed their eyes, ears, hearts, and talents to create a brief snapshot of this musical journey.  Whether you catch Jessie performing in one of her many New York residencies,  on a festival stage, or behind the turntables djing 90's throwback booty-shaking dancehall one thing is clear: Jessie Davis puts her heart and soul into everything she does. An undeniable talent, Jessie's voice goes from soft and sultry with a classic familiarity to filling every corner of the room with an electric intensity in the skip of a needle.   
The list of Jessie Davis' collaborators reads like the liner notes of mix tape for a summer crush, within the span of a decade Jessie had aliened herself with some of the strongest talents in the industry.  Be it a microphone, turntables, or a piano when Jessie Davis steps behind one she demands your attention, taking everyone in the room on a journey of where her heart has been.
Domenica Fossati
Domenica Fossati is a flutist, recording artist, and educator influenced by a wide range of musical styles and can be found working in the realm of classical and contemporary music as well as popular folk, world, jazz, rock, and hip-hop.

Fossati is an active performer in the contemporary/classical realm. Among her accomplishments are performances at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, The Stone, The Newport Jazz Festival, The Latin Grammy Awards, Maggio Fiorentino in Florence, and The Seoul International Drum Festival. She is a founding member of Concert Black and has collaborated with such collectives as the Nouveau Classical Project, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Composer’s Collective Found Objects, and TRANSIT. She has also worked with established and emerging composers including Harvey Sollberger, Julia Wolf, David Lang, Michael Gordon, Daniel Wohl, and Robert Honstein.

In addition to a professional career in new music, Fossati has worked and shared the stage with some of the leading players in jazz and popular music including Miguel Zenon, Kenny Werner, Seun Kuti, members of TV on the Radio, and Antibalas. She is the front-woman of the afrobeat ensemble, Underground System, a multicultural group that diversifies the male dominated afrobeat scene by being one of the only afrobeat bands to exclusively feature a female at front.

An advocate of fusing contemporary techniques with pop and non-western music, Fossati brings her highly specialized skill set to the following projects as collaborator and performer: The Fu-Arkist-Ra (led by Duke Amayo of the nationally acclaimed Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra), classic vocal roots ensemble Medicine Woman, and indie rock group The City and Horses (whose music has been featured in commercials and the motion picture, Paper Hearts starring Michael Cera). In each of these projects, she helps to infuse the music with elements of classical and modern techniques, blurring the genre lines and allowing for a totally unique and eclectic sound.
