Emily White 0 E. White   Contact Phone: 617-835-9732 Contact Category of Folk: folk/rock Location: Chicago, IL  Hi Folk Alliance!  I'm looking forward to sharing another great conference with you next year. Some info about me:  Independent folk-rock touring singer/songwriter Emily White has been described as standing out “conspicuously from the pack…with her hushed, preternaturally haunting vocal delivery (and bewitching sense of indie-rock-informed melody” (Connect Savannah). She has released four albums to date, the most recent being the Kai Welch-produced LP “Staking Flags in the Valley.”  In creating her show, she “adds an infusion of humor, audibly diverse musical influences and a truly singular sound that may leave even the most severe folk cynics entertained.” (Asheville Citizen-Times) She is based out of Chicago, but travels regularly throughout the US, captivating crowds with her unique voice and favorite Martin guitar, bringing her Southern roots and Midwestern charm to each city she visits.  Emily was named a Telluride Troubadour Finalist in 2015, and also a Finalist in the International Acoustic Music Awards that same year.  She is currently working on her 5th release, and tours regularly in the Midwest and yearly in the Northeast.   You can find out more at     Thank you for all of your hard work as showcase hosts!  I know it's a lot of juggling and we all appreciate it very much!   emily

Carol Markstrom seeking showcases 0 C. Markstrom Hello, I’m an award-winning singer-songwriter based out of Tucson with my songs reflecting the Western Roots tradition along with nods to Outlaw Country.  Many of my original songs tell stories about engaging people, places, and events of the Western U.S., with some drawing from my non-fiction writing and personal experiences in Native American communities. I have two highly praised CDs released and a third, titled Desert Rose, was just recorded in Nashville. I expect to have that new CD with me at FAI.  This year, I received a scholarship to attend FAI for the first time, and I was also a first-timer at SERFA and SWRFA where I performed in several in-room showcases at both conventions.  Another highlight of 2017 was completing my third consecutive tour in Alaska which included performing at Salmonfest—the largest outdoor music gathering in Alaska. Thank you for your consideration, Carol Phone or text: 304-216-2551 2017: Crossing Borders Album of the Year, Rural Roots Music Commission 2015: Awarded Western Female Vocalist of the Year, Academy of Western Artists and nominated for 2016 and 2017! 2015 & 2017: Official Showcase Artist, Western Music Association, Albuquerque

Farrel Droke - Oklahoma Songwriter 0 F. Droke SEEKING GENEROUS SHOWCASE HOSTS Category of Folk Music: Americana Contact Info: Email: Cell: 405-209-4800 Website: Stuff About Farrel: Farrel waited a while to start life in the music business after having had a full career as an Engineer and entrepreneur. His broad interests help create the depth of experiences needed to write decent lyrics. He is a Vietnam Era Veteran and has written a few songs about that experience. His songs are heartfelt, sometimes goofy, and sometimes Irish. Farrel’s sound is a mish-mash of Willy Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot, and John Denver. He has performed in several “The Art of the Protest Song” concerts mainly on the West Coast and, upcoming, at the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, OK. He has performed at the Norman Music Festival for several years. Farrel was a performer in the Freedom Folkers Room last year at the 2017 FAI. He has a couple of songwriting accolades:  His song, “Needle and Thread” was awarded an Honorable Mention in the July / August 2009 American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest. “Hard Times” won an Honorable Mention in the 2011 Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition. Farrel Droke is from Norman, Oklahoma. Farrel has three CDs: Kileigh by the Sea, Illusion of a Fool (an EP), and Magnet in My Heart released in 2017. Unlike many Folk Alliance attendees, Farrel Droke rarely wears a hat.

Amelie Patterson Poet Laureate and Song writer Debuts at FAI 2018 0 A. Patterson Hailing from Banff, Alberta, and serving as the town’s first Poet Laureate, Amelie Patterson leads as a strong ambassador for women songwriters. She would love to be considered for a showcase in your room at 2018 FAI. Below is a bio - stream her album at or check out her website at   The clear-voiced, honest and tenacious troubadour’s music traverses territories from blues to folk rock. Her debut album Roll Honey Roll was released in May 2016 at Canadian Music Week, and went on to win YYC Alternative Recording of The Year in 2017. Patterson then took to the road touring across Canada hitting stages at Calgary Folk Music Festival, The Banff Centre for Creative Arts, TED Talks, as well as small venues across Alberta and BC. The first single off the album, “Tic Tac Blues” was featured in 509 Productions winter edit for pro snowmobile competitor Nadine Overwater. On the story behind the music, Patterson explains:   “It’s about pushing yourself to keep going after what you love, no matter how tough. I love the chorus ‘step baby step, you move just like the rest, until you roll honey roll and do what you do best’. It’s about taking baby steps towards your dreams, and being so authentically you that it’s all you can be”.   As an aspiring performer, songwriter and producer, Patterson is constantly working towards her career goals. Over the past 4 years, the aspiring songstress has completed two music residencies at the Banff Centre for Creative Arts, Canada’s Music Incubator’s Artist Entrepreneur Program, Judy Stakee’s Songwriting Retreat and featured in Air Canada's Enroute Magazine.   Patterson has been involved with not-for-profits advocating for mental health and addiction, including The Prophets of Music, Pink Shirt Day, and I Will Survive. In 2016, Patterson’s residency with the Banff Centre produced a collaborative initiative with other artists to fundraise for The Prophets of Music Society. Participating artists have been writing, filming, and recording music in anticipation of the launch in 2018, where 100% of proceeds from online sales will be directed to the society.   Patterson is currently writing and working on a comprehensive new recording project that will include collaborations with musicians and producers from all over the country. She performs with her band based in Calgary, Alberta.

Amber Ikeman - Spirited, Earthy Folk Songstress 0 A. Ikeman Website: Contact: Category of Folk: contemporary, singer/songwriter, Americana Location: Bozeman, MT Bio: Amber Ikeman’s music carries audiences across the open spaces of the American West and into the depths of their souls. By turns innocent and worldly, gritty and inspired, peaceful and powerful, her songs tell stories of self-discovery, resilience, and wildness, with a soulful tone ranging from a husky chest voice to a bell-clear soprano. When she turned 25, Amber quit a professional job in her Florida hometown, sold everything that didn’t fit in her car, and drove across the country solo for the first time to live in Yellowstone National Park and work as a dishwasher. It was the inspiration for her debut album, “Free," named one of Southwest Montana's top local albums of 2015. She will release her second album embark on a cross-country tour in January 2018. “I felt so deeply moved by Amber’s words and her stories. She tugs at your soul like not many artists can. Without a doubt, a concert by Amber is not to be missed.”– Analucia Lopezrevoredo, Moishe House San Francisco I would love to play your showcase room.

Ben Brosh - Americana Singer/Songwriter 0 B. Brosh Contact Info Email: Website: N/A Category of Folk: Americana/Blues/Songwriter Location: Fort Collins, CO     Description of Music I am an Americana Singer/Songwriter based out of Fort Collins, Colorado. For the past 5 years, traveling around the United States in an old VW Westfalia, playing music with the Folk Rock trio The Coteries was my life. In 2018, I will be turning a new leaf and staying put, focusing on growing within the local Northern Colorado folk scene as a solo performer.

His music recollects what it truly means to be human- the hardships and joys that define every soul, with lyrics as honest as an adage.  Ben captures audiences with stories worth remembering and songs worth singing.

Richie Ros - Irish Singer Songwriter 0 R. Ros Richie Ros - Fairytales   Contact Info Email: Website: Category of Folk: Singer Songwriter Location: Ireland    Other Music Videos   Short Bio The life story of Richie Ros is a testament to the human spirit and to the cathartic healing nature of music. Despite the trauma of his early years and growing up in an state run orphanage Richie has refused to let his past define him. Richie had no control over past events in his life but the one thing he did have control over was his attitude.    Fate found him David Odlum, Grammy Award winning producer formerly of The Frames, who agreed to co-produce his Debut album in his Black box studio in France. The album fittingly called Odyssey – the journey of a young boy who in spite of all the odds stacked against him had worked to create his own fairytale. The music in his soul had, in his own words, finally “set him free”.    Now Richie’s debut EP has been released with tracks including "Fairytales", "Strange Mentality", "To Infinity and Beyond" and "Sweet Serenade".    "Strange Mentality" has received wide radio play on RTE Radio 1, Spin SouthWest, Classic Hits 4FM, Kfm, Radio Kerry, Live 95FM, DublinCityFM and Kiss FM Portugal. Richie continues to regularly tour all across Europe were he is steadily growing a loyal fanbase   I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Richie Ros on my long running solid gold show on Portugal's Kiss FM. Richie performed live on spec and the feedback has been brilliant. Such comments as "This guy is something special", "What chord sequences" and "Touching lyrics". Totally complementary of this ultra talented man. Sir Owen Gee - Kiss FM Portugal I Had The Pleasure Of s "This Guy Is Something Special", "What Chord Sequences" And "Touching Lyrics". Totally Complementary his Ultra Talented Man. Sir Owen Gee - Kiss FM P Website; Facebook; Instagram;
