Raye Zaragoza is an award-winning singer-songwriter who carries an acoustic guitar and a message. Her quiet yet powerful song “In the River,” written in response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota, resonated strongly with listeners and went viral in late 2016, garnering half a million views on the video, national media coverage, and a Global Music Award and Honesty Oscar. LA-based Justin Levinson was influenced by the greats of the 60’s. He creates self-described “power pop” drawing elements from his favorite artists of that era. He won the Billboard Song Contest and the International Acoustic Music Awards Best New Male Artist. In addition to his music, Justin has worked to spread awareness and end the use of words that demean mentally handicapped individuals. Through various organizations, he has worked with teenagers and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Photo of Raye by Terry Bruce Herring
