From a glance, Josh Glenn seems like your average folk musician. He has the requisite handsome beard and flannel shirt. While getting ready to perform in our B40 studio, he takes out his seasoned guitar and pedal assembly, connects them to an audio recorder, and starts playing various chords that are interrupted by a silence or an occasional bang on the body of his guitar. I am left very confused. Do all of his songs sound like this? They do. At the end of the performance, Josh can tell how puzzled I am and laughs.

Christine Su’s musical journey has taken her from singing at home with her brother, to playing for her peers while earning a degree in pharmacy, to auditioning for a Korean pop show (despite not knowing how to speak Korean). Yet at her core lies a desire to connect with her and other’s emotions, deeply rooted in each of her songs.
