Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP Hosts “Sound of Summer” Showcase at House of Blues Chicago

Posted on June 4, 2018 by Rhys Saunders

Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP’s Entertainment and Media Law Practice will host its fourth annual client music showcase on June 21 at the House of Blues Chicago. 

Sound of Summer will feature performances by four client artists, including: 

  • Trapo: This singer and rapper developed a distinct songwriting voice to go with a sonic palette that's instantly and identifiably his. Trapo performs with a mix of rawness and ache, often lending a growl to his delivery that can sound tender, desperate, or angry.
  • Carly and Martina: This pop duo began their music career at 13. The now 16-year-old twins from Chicago carry strong vocals, bold harmonies and sweet versatility to their sound. 
  • Todd Kessler: The rising folk-rock star is the consummate storyteller, with a remarkable ability to take listeners on a winding, wonderful, and introspective journey through the depths of the human experience. 
  • Hiber: Chicago's own Hiber is an emerging pop-rock band, nodding to influences in electronic music, indie rock, and R&B. The group's name plays off the inevitable hibernation of Windy City-dwellers every winter.

The IBF raises funds for distribution to Illinois nonprofit organizations whose mission is to provide free legal services to those with limited means.
