Jed Craddock’s musical sound can best be described as soul pop. Jed’s dynamic voice serves as a bridge that connects many musical genres. While his genre may jump from tender acoustic to heavy hitting trap, he always writes and produces songs that appeal to a wide variety of listeners.

Jed started his musical life with piano and choir. And, his dad got him started playing in drum circles, singing hymns and chanting in choral ensembles. Jed later went on to sing in the San Antonio children’s choir where he was introduced to a more formal musical setting. Ultimately, Jed learned to play multiple instruments and grew his appreciation for how important listening and creating space can be as an artist.

Jed was blessed to be mentored by Gina Fant-Simon, a true Pro Tools wizard and fantastic songwriter, and Kevin Killen, nine-time Grammy winning mixing engineer.  Both Gina and Kevin helped him develop the skills to produce and engineer songs for himself and others. He now owns and operates Earbender Studios with his fiancé, Boh Ireland.

In 2019, Jed teamed up with Bryan Fenelly from Plaid Dog Studios in Allston, Massachusetts, USA to crowdfund his first album, Prison in Paradise. His campaign was so successful that he was able to grow the album from a five track EP to a nine track album raising over $10,000 for the project.

Whether Jed is riding his bike, getting overloaded with cute aggression because of his three adorable dogs, slacklining in the park, or getting his hands dirty in the garden you can guarantee that music is constantly playing in his head. Seriously nonstop!

Daniel Leon, a master drummer and guitarist, this long haired hippie is also a sultry soulful singer/songwriter, originally from West Texas, who now calls San Antonio his home. Daniel Leon is someone who hates to be held down by labels or genre’s that others have tried to place on him.

Ruthie Craft, the 2023 Sonic Guild Artist, embarked on her musical journey at the tender age of eleven, finding solace and purpose in singing as a means to cope with her newly diagnosed Tourette’s syndrome. Little did anyone anticipate that a few years later, this powerhouse singer-songwriter would captivate audiences with a duet alongside an international superstar. Despite facing new challenges and heartbreak a decade later, Ruthie’s resilience shines through as she prepares to release her own EP, “Sound of Blue,” in the spring of 2024.

The path to musical stardom was paved with self-discovery and perseverance. From singing at open mics and talent shows, winning a contest to share the stage with Keith Urban, to navigating the highs and lows of a whirlwind marriage that led her from Washington to North Carolina, Ruthie found her voice amid adversity. Her journey continued with a notable appearance on American Idol in 2019, where she learned the art of songwriting and embraced the essence of being both a singer and performer. Today, Ruthie Craft is driven by a passion to create music that resonates with listeners, offering a blend of cinematic pop-soul characterized by powerful vocals, soulful tones, and poignant lyrics. Her latest single, “Nineteen,” pays homage to the transformative impact of Adele’s music, a fitting dedication to the artist who inspired her to channel her deepest emotions into her craft. Now based in Austin, TX, Ruthie looks forward to captivating audiences with her upcoming EP and creating an emotional connection through her captivating performances.
