John Torres (pictured), Kate Callahan, Becky Kessler, Jennifer Hill and Hannah Fair were all nominated for the Best Singer/Songwriter category of the first annual CT Music Awards in 2012. Kessler ended up winning the award, but the five were able to get on the same page and join forces. Together they'll be playing some shows under the name Das Musicians, uniting to have a greater impact than any one of them would on their own. See 'em Saturday at the Acoustic Café.
