Raisa is a singer/songwriter that does poppy tunes with a bunch of jazzy/folky/bluesy elements, to keep it real.
She's 21 and lives in Vienna Austria.
In May 2016 Dave left his home of Belfast, Northern Ireland to travel around Europe on a bicycle and finally give up on childish dreams of ever being a professional musician.
Some months, many kilometres, one lost bike and one new guitar later he was passing through Vienna when he was stopped in his tracks by a love of the city and a rather beautiful girl who took him in off the street he had been busking on.
Within a year Dave played at Schottenfest, DonauInselFest and StadtFestWien, toured twice through Germany, Austria and Switzerland, co-wrote an original piece for the University of Vienna to be used in their Human Rights Masters Program and even appeared on television, all while writing two albums (to be released in 2018) and collaborating with multiple other artsits. He celebrated one year in the city with a VSC* performance at the sold out Volkstheater, for TEDx Vienna. From intimate house shows to festival stages and every street in between, Dave is right back where he’s happiest: dreaming.
IAN FISHER (Host)
It's been more than a decade since Ian Fisher left his home state of Missouri and moved to Europe, forever changing his life and his music. With songs that combine an international lyrical perspective and a world-traveler’s musical influences with Americana roots, Fisher has remained on the road ever since emigrating, penning over one and a half thousand songs while also playing hundreds of concerts around Europe, North America, and Africa and performing in a handful of theater pieces in Vienna and Munich. An independent self-starter who handles his own management, he remains inspired and busy after thirteen albums, earning praise from outlets like Rolling Stone — who described him as one of the new Americana artists you need to know and his 2017 release, Idle Hands, as "half Americana and half Abbey Road-worthy pop”.
