Funk N Spuds

Funk N Spuds is a Minneapolis based musical collective of artists from around the Midwest. Formed in early 2020, their jam-rock jazz-pop sounds inspire hope in listeners and positive change in the world. They are Thomas Hazlett (lead guitar), Justin Halverson (12 string guitar), Christian Rasmussen (bass), Nick Buban (sax), Martin Meier (drums), and Max Meier (flugelhorn, keys, and vocals).

Over the past few years the Spuds have played venues across the Twin Cities, Southern Minnesota, and Central Wisconsin including Mid West Music Fest, Appleton Beer Factory, The Cabooze, 612 Brew, Galactic Get Down, and UW Stout.

Emerson Island

“One day I’ll come back for you, but it’s been a millennium,” croons Emerson Freybler on “Seashells,” the aching, nostalgic opener of All or Nothing–his debut EP under the name Emerson Island. It’s an ode to the old friends and faded relationships that accumulate as you make your way out of early adulthood–how, like the rise and fall of Freybler’s keyboard, they come rushing up when you least expect, pulling you heartfirst into an emotional ocean.

Bryn Battani

Slyly intense and disarmingly earnest, Bryn Battani weaves clever, tongue-in-cheek lyrics with vibrant arrangements. Influenced by artists like Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird and Regina Spektor, she supports her writing with genre-bending “chamber pop” instrumentation colored by her theatrical background and Western roots. Growing up in Austin, Texas, Bryn immersed herself in the area’s dynamic music scene, co-producing her debut EP All I Have to Offer You Is Anything You Want with Curtis McMurtry and Diana Burgess (of Austin’s Mother Falcon) in 2020. Her sophomore EP Hang Your Clothes explores her relationship with ADHD through smart lyricism and lively string parts.
