Laura Hugo is a Native American singer/songwriter from Teec Nos Pos, AZ located in the Navajo Nation. She moved to Minnesota in 2010 to pursue her music and has since played all over the Twin Cities and around the Midwest.

Songwriter Courtney Yasmineh has capitalized on a mythic backstory, leaving Chicago at seventeen to live alone in a deserted cabin in the north woods of Minnesota through a long cold winter, obsessing over the recordings of native countryman Bob Dylan, and emerging as a songwriter in her own right, hellbent on taking her guitar and her songs out on the open road. Fourteen tours to Europe and many forays across America later, with three grown children and one published novel that tells the tale, she's just released the eighth album of her best original material to date, with dates set to return triumphantly to her fans across America and Europe in 2022.

Corey Medina is a Blues-Rock artist who is Diné from Shiprock, NM, a town on the Navajo Tribal Nation. He moved to Northern Minnesota in 2012 to be closer to his girlfriend, now wife and mother to their two beautiful children. After a couple of years working in the community as well as the music scene, Corey was able to debut his first album, Old Dog Crying, in 2015 with a local producers' collaboration called Incepticons.

Corey now produces full-time music with his band known as "The Brothers", hence Corey Medina & Brothers. Corey calls who he trusts “brother”, and the band's dynamics on and off stage attributed to that. The Brothers band consists of Eric Sundeen of Bemidji, MN on Drums and Gary Broste also from Bemidji, on upright bass.

After 3 years of talking about a full-length studio album, in 2019 Corey and The Brothers released their debut album, Better Days. This year they will be recording their studio sophomore album in Minneapolis at the end of the summer at Winterland Studios. They set out to spread light in the dark with their raw, soulful, intimate music and stage presence.

Tapers notes: This was Corey & the band's first appearance at 7th Street Entry, and hopefully a stepping stone to bigger things to come for this great band. They just released a new album about a month ago, called "Soak", I would encourage everyone to listen to it, it's a very powerful album. They played a song at this show that has yet to be recorded and will be on a future album, and they requested it not be released. I have removed it here out of respect for the band, and will release it at some point when they have released the song on an album.
