Res - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
It is rare when a voice as powerful as RES comes around. Born Shareese Ballard in Philadelphia, RES has become an iconic example of the artist that defies classification. RES only belongs to one genre; her own. Her travels around the world as a solo artist, along with her participation in the super group, Idle Warship with Talib Kweli, have solidified her as a creative force to be reckoned with.

RES' solo debut album How I Do remains a cult classic. Her follow up entitled Black Girls Rock was released completely independent and showcases RES as an artist finding her own voice. Now she is back with Refried Mac, a collection of Fleetwood Mac songs reinvented by RES and producer Tom Spiker. Refried Mac gives RES a platform of familiar songs to showcase her amazing voice. It is an artistic triumph that is sure to whet the appetite for the main course, the next original album from a beautiful, brilliant, original artist. Res is presently finishing up a new album of original songs entitled, RESET, to be released in 2015.
Donn T - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Donn T
Dtone Victorious' Album Release Party for Donn T's Flight of The Donn T

Innovative and enigmatic singer-songwriter Donn T, is the quintessential independent artist and do-it- yourselfer. Her debut album, 2010's Kaleidoscopic, received international acclaim and led to stints performing with a diverse array of artists, including Amy Winehouse, Marsha Ambrosius, Zap Mama, John Legend and Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump.

Donn T added label owner to her list of accomplishments, when she launched D Tone Victorious in 2014. On her upcoming Flight of The Donn T album, due April 21st 2015, she shares co- production credit with her new husband Jake Morelli, a guitarist/ producer whose performance credits include stints with Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars, Ne-Yo, The Roots, Roberta Flack, Jennifer Hudson, Grace Potter, Esperanza Spalding, and Hunter Hayes. She and Morelli share additional writing credit with Mike McHenry (Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Black Eyed Peas, Madonna), Ray Angry (Christina Aguilera, Mark Ronson, Mick Jagger), DJ Danophonic and Steve McKie (Bilal).

Donn T originally hails from Philadelphia, and comes from a storied musical lineage. Her grandfather was Beachy Thompson of the pioneering gospel group The Dixie Hummingbirds. Her father is Lee Andrews, leader of legendary doo-wop group Lee Andrews & The Hearts. He and Donn T’s mother, Jacqui, were in the soul group Congress Alley. Donn T's brother, Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, is a Grammy-winning musician and bandleader of The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Family ties notwithstanding, Donn T is a unique talent in her own right.
Kate Faust - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Kate Faust
Kate Faust is, in her own words, "soulful, playful, and not for the faint of heart." One listen to her dynamic vocals and confessional-style writing confirms this declaration. Creating and digitizing her own beats, the Philadelphia-based pop artist seamlessly pronounces the message of eroticism, embracing strength and femininity throughout each self-curated track.

In 2014, Faust released her first EP, Crucial Companion, under Soulspazm. Kate’s second EP, Eros, released May 2015, takes guidance from Audre Lord’s essay, “The Uses of the Erotic.”

Soon to be released, Faust's new EP titled, Capsizing, dives deeper into vast oceans of human experience through the lens of love and empowerment. Lush, magical dance beats like , "Your Body," roll into trance-like meditations in tracks like "Beyond Desire," and the EP's title track, "Capsizing." With a growing richness and refreshing message, Faust will be touring this spring and summer performing for enthusiastic fans everywhere, from intimate venues to large public spaces.
