Steve Boller

Musician

Steve Boller is a musician who just won’t fit neatly into any of the existing genres. He writes quirky little songs that reside somewhere between the pop-folk of James Taylor’s generation, modern day folk pop, and the power pop of the ‘80s and '90s. His two recent releases, the “You Can Always Try” EP and “Logan Street Singles” are full of songs that fit in the narrow divide between hope and the existential.

Ashley Wottring

Fashion Blogger

I live in the city of Indianapolis but I was raised in small towns of Indiana. My heart loves the peaceful countryside but my shoes desire the city. I like to take current fashion trends and style them in my own way. I believe that style is a way to express your unique personality. Choosing an outfit in the morning becomes exciting when you stop dressing for other people and you dress only for you.
