JENNY OWEN YOUNGS, who covered Red House Painters “Have You Forgotten” for SMTS, is American singer-songwriter from Montclair, NJ whose debut album “Batten the Hatches” earned Youngs a record deal on Nettwerk and a placement on the popular TV series ‘Weeds’. Jenny’s recent follow-up album “Transmitter Failure” picks up with thicker arrangements and more electric production than fans might be used to, but deliciously malleable vocals, unique instrumentation, and the songwriter's trademark caustic wit remain. The album has enjoyed critical praise, and Jenny’s been touring worldwide in support opening for artists such as Vienna Teng, Aimee Mann, and Motion City Soundtrack.

JULIE PEEL, who covered Jon Brion’s “Strings That Tie To You” for SMTS, is a French-born singer-songwriter and self-taught multi-instrumentalist who writes smart, well-crafted folk rock with a pop sensibility reminiscent of Aimee Mann, Neil Young, Beth Orton and Feist. Julie's debut album "Near The Sun" is a rare and unexpected gem of a release, enjoying many months on the CMJ charts, praise from music critics worldwide, and earning Julie an early invitation to showcase at SXSW in 2010 as well as high-profile placements in television shows including NBC's pilot episode of "Mercy" and CW's "Life Unexpected."
