Shalom got her musical start as a drummer when she was ten years old, and later began to sing, write songs and poetry, and produce. As an emcee, she combines her love for Soul music and her long-developed writing skills to create hard-hitting and emotional songs. She performs regularly in the Boston area and New England and is a member of the Wreck Shop Movement, a collective of artists of spoken word, visual arts, music and more, bringing social awareness and activism to communities through their art.

Aisling Peartree (pronounced Ashleen) is a "Soul R&B Freedom" singer/songwriter. She began her lifelong love affair with music singing in the gospel musical Black Nativity as a young child. She went on to study classical piano, theory and later voice, while also self-studying all her favorite Soul, Blues, R&B and folk vocalists and songwriters. She began songwriting with the piano at age 14 and has been writing ever since. She left behind a lucrative career singing for restaurants, private events and weddings to focus on her original music- from ballads to social justice anthems- as well as her activist outreach work with The Freedom Movement- including mentoring, song healing and community building.
