He spent seven years on the road with The Smart Brothers, releasing 5 recordings and performing with the likes of First Aid Kit, Matt Costa, American Aquarium, and John Prine. Known for his passionate vocals and smart lyrics, JDE’s sound is infused with Americana, rock, pop, and a touch of soul.

His music has been featured in radio, TV, and independent films and is available on iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify.
Growing up in a multi-faceted musical family left Pittsburgh native Nina Sainato with a divided love for both classical music and rock n’ roll. Sainato has been performing in the tri-state area since the age of 6. Soon after beginning classical piano lessons, she found her ability to both perform and compose were at the prodigious level. Her resume displays a mass of recitals and summits, claiming several state and regional titles of NFMC composition competitions, as well as acceptance into Governor’s School of Excellence for the Performing Arts. After spending two years at NYU as a piano performance major, she transferred to the Sound Recording program at Duquesne University to pursue her longtime love of rock n’ roll and the recording arts.
