IMAGINARY TRICKS IS MIKE VISSER AND HARLAN MUIR
Stills
Stills
‘Stills’ formed in the spring of 2015 as an acoustic duo featuring Katie Schottland and Tom Dixon. The two connected over their mutual love of classic folk, 60’s and 70’s rock, and current indie bands. Both Tom and Katie write independently and come together to collaborate with the rest of the band on harmonies and arrangements. Since the summer of 2016, they have become a 6-piece outfit, with the talents of Allison Robinson on harmonies/percussion, Tim Talavera on drums, Jake Verdugo on bass, and David Kammerer on lapsteel/lead guitar.
Katie Mullins
Katie Mullins
“Katie Mullins is a singer-songwriter — just not in the way you might think. Admit it: You’re picturing Woman With Guitar, right? Well, the closest Mullins gets to that is the baritone ukulele (which is pretty close, actually), but several songs on her latest album, Wedding, feature her singing and accompanying herself on the mbira, a thumb piano from Zimbabwe. “Spring” features her clear, ringing voice, both in the melody and in a glowing overdubbed chorus; percussion and eventually cello flesh out the sound. The mbira’s gently insistent, almost minimalist fragments and Mullins’ poetic vocals are a mixed marriage for sure, but then, the title of the album refers not to matrimony, but to the blending of dissimilar or even opposite ideas.” — John Schaefer, host of WNYC’s Soundcheck
Amelia Robinson
Amelia Robinson
Amelia Robinson is a musician / composer from Brooklyn, NY who works to bring people together by breaking down barriers and offering an opportunity to explore the human condition through music. Her debut solo album, "The Space Between", explores identity and interpersonal relationships through lyrical piano pieces and funky grooves composed on her electric ukulele.

Amelia has performed at Lincoln Center, produced a mixed-media collaboration with the Guggenheim, and appeared at Carnegie Hall, BAM, Wolf Trap, Tribeca Film Festival, Symphony Space, and overseas at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (rated Top 20 shows in 2014). Her music has also been endorsed by Michelle Obama's Let's Move Initiative to promote healthy lifestyles in youth across America.
