Artist Bios

Katie Dobbins

Award-winning singer-songwriter and light warrior Katie Dobbins seeks to share honest music that captivates listeners and brings light to the darkness. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift the spirit and challenge the soul. Her album There Is Light, produced by multi-award-winning producer Sean McLaughlin of 37′ Productions, was awarded Album of the Year at the 2021 Limelight Music Awards. Her single There’s a Light, mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Jeff Lipton, was featured on Spotify’s Editorial playlist. Her music has been featured on prominent radio stations like The River and “Boston’s Hottest Country,” with host Carolyn Kruse raving, “Sweet but bold, Katie’s voice is reminiscent of one of her heroes, Jewel, but only deeper… A fearless spirit with a gentle touch.” Dobbins’ fall single Wild, written on the rocks at Marginal Way in Maine, sings of wild love that compels her to step outside of her comfort zone and toward the wild dreams in her heart. The track was mixed and mastered by Emmy-nominated producer Brian Coombes of Rocking Horse Studio (NH), whom Katie also produced her summer single Just Cause I Can with, and whom she is currently recording more music with to be released in the new year.


Maddi Ryan

Hailing from just north of Boston, Maddi Ryan is an up and coming singer/songwriter who will steal your heart. Her passion for singing and performing began when she was just a little girl. Her first stage was on top of her coffee table where she’d sing for anyone in her family who would listen. Since then, Ryan and her band have performed all around the country at venues big and small and have had the opportunity to open for acts such as Ray Fulcher, Morgan Myles, and The Cadillac Three. Her performances have earned Ryan ‘Country Act of the Year’ nominations at the 2019, 2021, and 2023 New England Music Awards. The Deli magazine highlights her, “clear ability to engage her most honest emotions, and deliver them cordially through her vocals, full of grace.” Ryan recently released her debut EP ‘Growing Pains’ on October 14th!


Ericka Cushing

Known for her evocative deep tone that lends itself to an engaging storytelling through song, Ericka Cushing bares her soul completely with her audiences. You feel as though she is singing directly to you as she weaves her tales through melody and guitar. You walk away feeling connected with a new friend and definitely beaming at a higher frequency. Her favorite venue is in the pasture with her loving cow, Minnie Mae.
