ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Sofi Tukker - Band


Why you should listen

Sofi Tukker's very existence happened haphazardly, after Sophie Hawley-Weld met Tucker Halpern during an art show at Brown University, where they both happened to be performing. It only took a couple of months before the NYC-based duo penned their viral track, "Drinkee," which has since been featured in an Apple Watch Ad, racked up more than 20 million Spotify streams and received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. The song was the first they ever wrote, and it became the backbone of their EP, Soft Animals. Their next collection of songs will combine a guitar-led edge with the playfulness and myriad of international influences.

Betta Lemme - Vocalist, songwriter and producer


Why you should listen
A Montreal native of Italian origins, Betta Lemme is a vocalist, songwriter and producer. Lemme quickly learned to play any instrument set in front of her. Her three native tongues of English, French and Italian have been incorporated into her music and elusive disposition. She made her recording debut as a featured vocalist and writer on Sofi Tukker's "Awoo.” You can expect more dance music from Betta in the fall of 2017.
