Maura has also worked in staff positions in the creative services and marketing departments of The New Yorker, as a promotion director, as well as The New York Times, Vanity Fair, and Gourmet and has also worked on fundraising events at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Brooklyn Philharmonic.
Raised in Charleston, Maura pretty much cut her teeth on the Spoleto Festival USA, and was in the children’s choir of its first opera, The Queen of Spades. A month after she received her College of Charleston diploma, she high-tailed it to New York City, vowing to never return. She then spent the next few decades trying to get back to Charleston. Five years ago, that finally happened, and she is eternally grateful.
After cutting his teeth as an architect for 8 years in New York City, Nicholas is happy be in Charleston working on smaller scale projects and immersing himself into the creative community. His approach to design is measured; with a knowledge of the past, but always looking to the future.
In 2011, Kanika Moore entered the theater program at the University of South Carolina and from there started her journey as a singer/songwriter with her first duo, Major to Minor. Working her way through community theater and with East Coast entertainment, she found strength to work as a full-time student, a recognized community theater actress, a vocal instructor, and a working musician/vocalist. In 2015, Her work as a musician expanded her work back to her hometown.
From there, Kanika has worked with The Charleston Jazz Orchestra, Emerald Empire, Gino Castillo, featuring strings and salsa, and several other established groups/musicians in the local Charleston area. Her versatility has allowed her to work with several bands that cover many genres including gospel, classic rock, funk, soul, jazz and more. Her myriad talents have also opened doors to traveling as far as Spain and Italy with international musicians.
Since the return to her hometown, Kanika has started her own musical projects with Terraphonics, The Motown Throwdown, Soul Funk Review, Doom Flamingo, Black Noize and more, continuing to be explored.
Farrah's vision with HEART is to build strong community support for adults with special needs who want to develop and identify as artists, build a strong team of HEART Mentors, a financially sustainable infrastructure, and produce engaging and inclusive community art events. HEART strives to become a creative center for people of all abilities where Charleston residents and visitors want to visit, volunteer, collaborate, and contribute. www.heartsc.org
she is venita aspen.
Holler lives in Charleston, South Carolina. She is a singer/songwriter and concert producer. She hails the South as home and has lived in New Orleans and New York; she studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston. The music’s current state of evolution is supported by a little twang and a little late-night clarity.
Holler cites influences from the likes of Tom Waits, Gram Parsons, Nina Simone and Neil Young - preferring genre straddlers, categorical misfits and indefinables.

Upon graduation from James Madison University in 2004, Xan accepted a corporate job but quickly decided it was not for him, so he set off for the bright lights of Las Vegas. He spent several years learning the intricacies of the fast-paced bar business with jobs at Casino Monte Lago as a bartender and bar manager. He then moved on to Reflection Bay Resort as bar manager for three years where he managed the bar for celebrity fundraisers, concerts, and the resort’s private yacht.
On his journey back east in 2007, he took a detour through Charleston, SC, fell in love with the coastal city, and decided to make it his new home. He first helped open Chai’s Lounge on Upper King Street, then served as manager of its sister restaurant, Basil, until 2011. He also worked as bartender at other popular Charleston restaurants, Fig and The Ordinary.
In 2013, Xan heard about a new project that veteran restaurateur Karalee Fallert was developing on the upper peninsula of Charleston. Realizing he was ready to take a leap of faith, he joined forces with her as operating partner of The Park Cafe. Together, they opened the doors in February 2014 and have since established the neighborhood cafe as one of the most beloved restaurants in town.
In early 2018, Xan took on the role of beverage director for Karalee’s other restaurants: Taco Boy(s) and the forthcoming Wiki Wiki Sandbar on Folly Beach. He is also in the process of launching a charity he conceptualized called Bread & Butter whose mission will be to offer at-risk students in Charleston a culinary arts program and then place them in a local restaurant kitchen.
Joel and his fiancee Allyson Sutton are currently launching Sightsee, a retail shop + coffee counter.
