Thu, Oct 24 7:00 pm
Jason Erie : “Hyper-sensory storytelling with raw, hard-hitting images and a white-knuckle worldview that seems best cultivated in the Garden State, Jason’s stories and his songs are ultimately and triumphantly his own. He is not afraid to expose the tragic grit or the chrome-facaded fragility of his own life or of life in general. Beneath the richness of his storytelling, it is his unabashed dedication to truth, in its many forms, that makes Jason special.”-- Producer, John Dennis Chris Moyse: Winner of the 2017 Kerrville New Folk songwriting competition and recently selected performer at the 2018 & 2019 Dripping Springs Songwriter Fest, Chris Moyse is a nationally-touring folk songwriter out of Nashville, TN. He has recently shared the stage with Joe Ely, Jonathan Byrd, and members of Old Crow Medicine Show. He shares an attention to lyricism with artists like Jason Isbell and Hayes Carll, with melodies that are reminiscent of Gregory Alan Isakov and John Moreland. Anana Kaye: “Rich, strong, tender, translucent, and dynamic. The luminous vibrancy simply embraces the listener, enfolding you into sumptuousness.” - The Huffington Post. Meet Anana Kaye, a Nashville based Indie Alt-Americana Duo. Hailing from Georgia (no NOT the state, but the ancient country on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, where Argonauts sailed to steal The Golden Fleece and where wine was invented some 8000 years ago) Anana Kaye and Irakli Gabriel deliver a unique and distinctly European sound we rarely experience in such potent doses today. With influences including Kate Bush, Nick Cave, and David Bowie their music is a genre-bending experience akin to twisting kaleidoscope. Sisterman: Sisterman is Hugh Trimble and Audrey MacAlpine, an energetic duo of Nashville-based lead singer-songwriters who share a European background as well as a proud affinity for the classic songwriting tradition of artists like Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger, Joni Mitchell, and Leonard Cohen. Their unique Americana-meets-World sound brings together a wide range of musical genres, unexpected rhythms, tight, country harmonies, and smart lyrics that blend genuine depth with lighthearted self-reflection. Sisterman’s debut album Lily White Parade presents a dynamic collection of songs influenced by Folk and Americana storytelling and backed by fiddle player Paton Dane and percussionist Mason Wheaton. There is a refreshing and self-aware tone that pervades the entire album, pulling together divergent songs into a vibrant and cohesive whole that invokes the full spectrum of feeling. Produced by Grammy-winning sound engineer and producer Mitch Dane and mastered by Pete Lyman, the songs on Lily White Parade offer lively and compelling glimpses into humanity. The album is set to be released in early 2020. Keep an ear out for the first two singles from Lily White Parade this Fall.
