Brittany Cavallaro is the author of the poetry collection Girl-King (University of Akron Press, 2015) and the forthcoming young adult novel A Study in Charlotte (HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen Books, 2016). Individual poems have appeared in AGNI, The Southern Review, Tin House, and elsewhere. She is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center. Currently, she lives in Madison, Wisconsin.
 .
DOWNRANGE TELEMETRICS is collaboration between noted Twin Cities-based poet/performer/singer Becca Barniskis, and guitarist Nick Jaffe, a veteran of the Chicago soul, hip hop, post-rock, and experimental music scenes. DT have performed to critical acclaim in a wide variety of music and poetry venues, including radio and live-television.  Barniskis’ mesmerizing voice, angular imagery and odd characters and stories are at once comedic and sinister, and blend effortlessly with Jaffe’s evocative improvisational soundscapes and hypnotic grooves.  They are “like nothing you’ve heard or seen before. Full of surprises!”
