The Star-Ledger called Val Emmich “one of the finest songwriters in the Garden State, [and] also one of the most prolific.” He’s also the New York Times’ bestselling author of Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel and an actor who you may have seen on 30 Rock (NBC), Vinyl (HBO) and others. He lives in Jersey City heights.
For the last 20 years Paul Rosevear’s musical aim has remained the same: to connect with others through a great song, well sung. Along the way, he’s supported artists ranging from Joan Baez to Stone Temple Pilots, licensed his songs to major networks like MTV and The CW Network, penned innumerable jingles in adland, and proudly served spaghetti and meatballs to Ric Ocasek while interning at NYC’s legendary Magic Shop recording studio. His latest solo release is entitled “Pearl,” and his latest band release is The Vice Rags' self-titled EP. Paul also teaches songwriting at Lakehouse Music Academy in Asbury Park.
