WILSON WONG & THE DUDES

Wilson has performed with Kearny Street Workshop at previous APAtures (2008 & 2009), RAMA, and Hyphen Magazine. He was the Bazaar Cafe August 2013 Songwriter in Residence. "Other Side of Twenty" EP was produced by Tommy P of 11th Ave Records and released November 2014. His backing group are the very talented Carlos Cajilig (Lead Guitar), Steve Witt (Bass/Mandolin), and Stephen Michael (Drums) a.k.a. "The Dudes".
Wesley Woo is an award winning singer, songwriter, and guitarist with roots in Motown, Blues, and Alt. Rock. Currently on tour with his 4 piece band "Wesley Woo Band," his songs sound somewhere between The Temptations, Goo Goo Dolls, and Dave Matthews Band. Wesley was awarded "Best Song of the Year" by the West Coast Songwriters SF chapter in 2013 for his song "Stay," which released with his 2014 album "Do Re Mi". Noted for his "lush melodies and amorous lyrics" by Examiner.com's Justin Crowley, Wesley plays regularly at San Francisco's local venues including the Lost Church and the Bazaar Cafe. Wesley will be on tour through the Pacific Northwest January and February of 2015. Visit http://www.WesleyWooMusic.com for more details.
Inspired by country, folk, and lo-fi music, Heather Nievera writes songs about love, lust, anger, vulnerability, and restlessness. She usually plays at San Francisco's Bazaar Cafe and in her friends' living rooms, so she is excited to play at Studio Grand for the first time. Heather believes in ghosts, loves wasabi, and is learning how to bake good ol' fashioned apple pies. She is based in Oakland, CA. You can listen to her music and follow her updates at heathernievera.com.
