Clare Costello and Tyler Mahard

Clare Costello is an 18 year old singer songwriter from New Milford, who has performed at open mics, talent shows, festivals, and charity events throughout Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and even Dublin, Ireland. She has performed twice in the NY Singer Songwriter Sessions at The Bitter End in NYC, and was the youngest performer at The Olde Sherman Opry for the past two years. Shifting from quirky tunes on ukulele, to deep brooding tracks on guitar, Clare's original material is both unique and contemporary with a soulful quality. Clare released a three song mini album at 13, and at 16, released a full length album of acoustic originals entitled "raw.", which is available on iTunes, Spotify, etc.¬ She has enough new material for her next 2 albums; she just needs to find time to get in the studio to record!

Tyler Mahard is a singer-songwriter and Connecticut native. Originally a drummer, he began playing guitar, writing, and recording music during his teens. He was influenced by classic rock early on, and eventually developed strong interest in the work of Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Tom Petty, and The Beatles. Tyler uses his voice, acoustic guitar, and occasional harmonica to perform his songs and those from well-known artists. His songwriting draws from blues, folk, and rock, with lyrics often themed around travel and nature. In addition to music, Tyler has a passion for the natural world. After spending five years in New Hampshire working in wildlife conservation, Tyler returned to Connecticut to focus on music.
