MariaElena 0 M. Teubner Maria Elena is the rarest of singer-songwriters: One who takes giant risks, whether writing about robots, mixing the darkness of ‘90’s rock with the light and redemption of folk music, writing her own songs or interpreting tunes written by others. Blend her adventurous nature as a writer with live performances that are positively cathartic and you have a must-see performer who does not disappoint. - Jedd Beaudoin Host Strange Currency NPR/KMUW  MariaElena's upcoming solo album, Hollow Bones, is scheduled for release in the spring of 2018. Reaching back to her Americana roots, MariaElena incorporates familiar motifs from traditional folk, country-western and bluegrass music into a dark, dissonant concept album reminiscent of your favorite childhood lullabies. Hear samples from the Hollow Bones teaser here:

While many performers often look to expand their arrangements, the duo has found the opposite works best for them, allowing their harmonies and delivery of lyrics to come to the forefront. The two members, Josh Sandu (vocals/guitar/banjo) and Andrew Laite (vocals/guitar), have been honing their craft for the better part of four years, playing all across Canada. In the midst of releasing their debut album “Back and Forth”, the two are primed to have a busy year. They have recently appeared on CBC television as a feature artist on “Absolutely Canadian”, played multiple summer festivals in Newfoundland and Labrador, and are currently planning to tour their album across the country.   For more information:   ----- To give something a “glowing review” is usually just a turn of speech, an idiom that easily conveys adoration. But here it means so much more — Rube and Rake’s Back and Forth truly glows. It glows bright with songs about love, about loss, about change, about life. It’s rustic charm evokes a steady stream of cinematic shots that connect to the listener on a level that every artist should be envious of. - The Overcast Watching young people making old-timey/timeless folk music can be a delicate proposition. Their reverence for tradition might be contrived and backwards or perhaps too blatantly market savvy in appealing to every generation. Walking into the Ship and hearing the two men of Rube & Rake singing together squashed all the cynicism within me. Yes, they sounded like Simon & Garfunkel and they even did an Everlys song and it was beautiful. And maybe by doing all of this, they placed themselves in a new tradition initiated by, I don't know, the Milk Carton Kids or someone. Maybe timeline fixations are arbitrary obsessions and the true measure of a band's worth is how fast they trigger something within you, rather than a critical cobweb of whether they should or shouldn't be doing what they're doing. All I know is, the two dudes harmonized beautifully and sang lovely songs and it was gorgeous. - Vish Khanna (Exclaim!)

With an arsenal of horns, drums and vocals, these award-winning musicians deliver a dynamic new spin on world and jazz traditions. From carnival-esque originals to Klezmer party jams, the band explores folk influences from West Africa, Eastern Europe and their home of St. John’s, Newfoundland, with a thrilling improvisational synergy.   At home in concert halls, clubs and outdoor festivals, Ouroboros is versatile musical force,  captivating jazz festival crowds and accompanying international circus artists. Together, Greg Bruce, Susan Evoy, Nicole Hand, Chris Harnett and Ashley Chalmers write, arrange and perform some of Canada’s most creative and engaging instrumental music. For more information, visit   —— Seriously original, seriously good music  - The Overcast   Four saxophones and drums shouldn't have been this entertaining. But with elements of Klezmer, jazz, Afro-funk, and swing, Ouroboros proved to be one of Lawnya Vawnya's best kept secrets.     The local five-piece have the on-stage presence of the best parade ever. They exude joy without ever seeming caught up in the novelty of what they're doing. The musicians are top shelf and don't seem capable of fucking up.     "Talk Dirty" featured an on-point original rap by Susan Evoy. Greg Bruce, Chris Harnett, Nicole Hand, and Evoy play with obvious chemistry and drummer Andrew McCarthy is a jazz powerhouse. Their cover of Rage Against the Machine's "Killing in the Name Of" ruled. Just a ridiculously great and special combo. Every music festival should bring Ouroboros to their patrons in the summertime. They're awesome and irresistible. - Vish Khanna (Exclaim!)

Larissa Tandy 0 L. Tandy Contact: +1 778 952 2375 Genre: Americana Location: Vancouver, Canada / Melbourne, Australia / Nashvillle TN   Looking for an international artist to add to your private showcase? Larissa Tandy would love to join you! Hailing from rural Australia, Larissa came up from the underground of Melbourne’s world class music scene, mining her difficult life for potent stories and spinning them into songs that made their way onto radio in America, the UK, and Canada where the CBC ordained them as “songs you need to hear”. Filtering the urgent poetry of Patti Smith and the untamed cool of Liz Phair, while fearlessly laying bare her road worn heart, Tandy is carving her own path in the world of modern americana using truth as a weapon. Her momentum continues to gather, this year making the move to Music City Nashville as the recipient of The Australia Council’s prestigious Nashville Songwriter Residency. Her album, The Grip, spent 6 months on the US Americana charts, reaching number 2 in Canada. Her next album, her most upbeat and infectious work yet, is scheduled for release in 2018.

Arkansas Dave 0 D. Pennington Contact Info Phone:512-210-9308 Email: Category of Folk: Americana Location:Austin, TX Single out: Bio:  Dave Pennington learnt at an early age that there are only a few roads out of a place like Camden, Arkansas. One road heads to the prison, another to a career in the army, and the other’s a swampy dead end. It’s a romantic cliché to find an escape in music and the blues, but living that life is a different matter. Ask Dave about growing up in a broken home, with fundamental Christianity on one side, and crippling drug-addiction on the other, and you can see in his eyes that this is no easy ride, and that at times music really was his only friend. Escaping Arkansas as soon as he could, Dave played in bands, funding his music with a succession of jobs where he had to find his feet quickly – from bus boy, to assembly-worker in a trash-bag factory. Fast forward to 2016 and Dave has written the album he’s always wanted to create – a wide ranging blues-rock based record that tells the story of his life, but resonates with all of us. The project just needed one more ingredient, so enter the Swampers, the legendary Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. In a blistering eight-day recording session at Fame Studios the band laid down the backing tracks, and Dave returned to Arlyn to complete the vocals. So the next chapter of Dave’s life is about to be written as he pulls his band together and takes his album out on the road – this time on a road that he’s building....

Teresa Storch 0 T. Storch Soulful-Americana Artist Teresa Storch Email: Mobile: (617) 549-7684 Website: LINK TO MORE VIDEO “…SOMEDAY THIS ARTIST WILL BE IN THE LEAGUE WITH EMMYLOU HARRIS, PATTI GRIFFIN, MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER, SHAWN COLVIN AND ROSEANNE CASH.” –JOHN APICE, NO DEPRESSION MAGAZINE. How does woman with a degree in Applied Physics become a nationally touring Singer/Songwriter? While studying engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, Teresa Storch became obsessed with live music. One show at Red Rocks Amphitheater prompted her to admit aloud “I think need to do that!” The voice in her head just wouldn’t let go. In 2001, after getting laid-off from a job, she began busking in the Boston Subways. Since then, Teresa has become an international live performer of joyful strength and riveting, emotional power. Her soulful-Americana songwriting balances on the fence between folk and jazz, drawing comparisons to Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Shawn Colvin. Audience members say it’s like seeing Bonnie Raitt when she first started. She has recorded 3 studio and 2 live albums, toured nationally for 14 years, and internationally since 2016. Her latest album “Come Clean“(2014) produced by Philip Parker and Jamie Mefford (Gregory Alan Isakov) has garnered international attention, being chosen for The Top Country/Americana Albums of 2015 by Martin Chilton of The Telegraph (UK). John Apice of No Depression Magazine states “Emmylou Harris would find a wealth of inspiration in these songs…” She was chosen a 2015 GrassyHill New Folk Finalist at the Kerrville Folk Festival, selected as an Emerging Artist at the 2015 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and received Honorable Mention in the 2015 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter’s Competition.

NewSong Finalist Crys Matthews 0 C. Matthews Crys Matthews Contact Info Phone: (828) 719-6711 Email: Category of Folk: Americana/Singer-songwriter Location: Herndon, VA Description of Music Crys Matthews is nothing if not ambitious. In August, she simultaneously released both a new full-length album, The Imagineers and an EP, Battle Hymn For An Army Of Lovers. These collections showcase two sides of Matthews’ dynamic songwriting; The Imagineers is a selection of thoughtful songs about love and life while Battle Hymn For An Army Of Lovers tackles social justice themes. Songs from both projects have already garnered acclaim like being selected as a NewSong Music finalist, and winning the People's Music Network's Social Justice Songs contest at NERFA. Matthews sings about hope, love, perseverance and justice with an ease and candor that one might expect from a southeastern North Carolina native whose mother happens to be a preacher. Equally at home in an acoustic listening room as she is on stage at large music festivals, Matthews has quickly gathered a loyal following playing such prestigious venues and festivals as The Birchmere, The Hamilton, BMI's Island Hopper Songwriter Festival, the 40th Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival, Folk Alliance International, 30A Songwriters Festival, Northeast Regional Folk Alliance and many more.
