Patterson Barrett previewing new Americana CD, last minute showcase spots? 0 P. Barrett p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; min-height: 15.0px} span.s1 {letter-spacing: 0.0px}   click here for EPK     Patterson Barrett moved to Austin shortly after appearing on Jerry Jeff Walker’s first release on MCA records, playing pedal steel, dobro, and guitar (including on Walker’s hit “L.A. Freeway”). Not long after arriving in Austin, he formed the band Partners In Crime, which included Buddy and Julie Miller. In the years since, Patterson has managed to perform with artists as diverse as Chuck Berry, Hal Ketchum, and Nancy Griffith, all the while writing and recording his own songs, and Give’em What They Want represents his latest collection.   As in his two previous solo outings, Barrett makes much of the music on Give ‘Em What They Want himself, but there are plenty of guest appearances by friends and peers. Featured performers include Jim Lauderdale, Walt Wilkins, and Stuart Duncan, in addition to Gurf Morlix and Buddy Miller, who share vocals with Barrett on the single “3 Young Alleycats.” The song is a reminiscence of the days gone by when Morlix, Miller, and Barrett were knocking around Austin. In it, the three declare wistfully, “The universe will never be the same again,” but then muse “How long we can howl at the moon, no one can tell.”     The music is solidly Americana, with nods to influences as diverse as The Band, Little Feat, and Gram Parsons, all of whom Barrett cites as inspirations. At times the songs lean toward the country side of things, as in the slyly humorous, two-step inducing “Elephant In The Room” (with Lauderdale on harmony vocal.)    But there are also introspective singer-songwriter moments, notably in “If I Only Knew How,” with Barrett finding himself unable to help those close to him who need it the most.   Barrett may be best known for his sideman work, but he’s amused by the notion that the CD represents some sort of debut as a front man. “…yeah, that’s…interesting, since I’ve been writing, recording, and performing my own songs for…well, really, since I was a teen”.   Patterson intends to spend the bulk of 2018 touring behind the record. “It’s really about the songs; these songs show up, and I feel obliged to give them a chance to find an audience. So it’s sort of like, ‘The Songs of Patterson Barrett on Tour (accompanied by Patterson Barrett)’ If I don’t sing ‘em, who else will?”

Seeking last minute showcase spots 0 J. Brown Contact Info Phone:773-507-4718 Email: Category of Folk:Indie Folk Location:Chicago/Virginia About Me Singer songwriter from Chicago, soon to be moving to Northern Virginia - 2018 Folk Alliance International panel speaker - Ravenclaw Singer-songwriter Jeff Brown grew up with his ears fixed on the musical intricacies of Iron Maiden records, but over the years has chosen to explore a softer side of music. These days, he creates songs rooted in the gentle musings of contemplative trailblazers like Carole King and James Taylor with modern touches similar to Damien Rice and Iron & Wine.  He cites his musical influences as, "Girls and alcohol, mostly," and uses passion, a sense of humor, and a comforting stage presence to bring to life love songs for people that are sick of the same old love songs.  He tours regionally, nationally, and internationally, having most recently returned from a month-long tour of Iceland, England, Ireland, and Scotland. He'd love to help fill out the empty bits in your private showcase! Check out his website for more information.

Nancy K Dillon | Performing Songwriter | American Songs & Stories | New CD 0 N. Dillon Nancy K Dillon Contact Info: Email: Phone: 206.351.9605 Category of Folk: Folk/Americana Location:Seattle Learn more at:  Nancy K. Dillon would love to sing for you and is seeking private showcases at FAI 2018.   I'm excited to return to Kansas City and the FAI Conference in 2018!  My roots are in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas so it feels so good to get 'home' especially with the chance to commune with so many talented artists and music lovers from around the world!  Please read on for more about my music.  See you in K.C. - NKD Description of Nancy K. Dillon's Music “With a voice somewhere between Nanci Griffith, Judy Collins and the young Lucinda Williams, innocence and experience loom large. Dillon's 2nd album, "Roses Guide To Time Travel" features contributions from such musicians as Danny Barnes, Gavin Sutherland and Stacy Phillips. It's a desert dust coated brew of bluegrass, folk, honky tonk, blues and country in service of songs about small towns, trains, highways, drifters, loving and losing, leaving and hanging in as, per the title, years pass by.” — NetRhythms (UK) "Songs fashioned into something that is in one sense old-fashioned and in another modern, in the best sense. The music speaks movingly to the continuity of past and present, where the place you were takes you to the place you are and will be." — Jerome Clark ( Nancy K. Dillon grew up in Central Oklahoma raised in a musical family by her composer/professor/jazz-player/church-choir-director father, Bob Dillon, and her mother, Betty Lou, a former vocal teacher who sang hymns around the house. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, a move to Seattle led to travel, adventure and varied musical opportunity. Nancy performed in roots-based bands and was in demand as a backing vocalist and session singer until her decision to focus on songwriting in the New Millennium. In 2004, Dillon released her first studio solo album recorded with Grammy Award-winning engineer, Garey Shelton. A rootsy outing of mostly original songs, "Just Let Me Dream" gained airplay around the world and was highly praised by reviewers. With the release of her 2nd album, "Roses Guide To Time Travel" (2010), Dillon began a musical exploration of her American roots. For "Roses Guide" she designed a haunting image of an old time locomotive for the cover and dedicated the album to her great-grandfather Kansas trainman and BLFE Union Officer, Asa Dillon. In addition to performing, she continued her travels throughout the New West writing and singing songs of railroads and Okies, Texas tornados and lonely roads of red dirt. Songs from "Roses Guide" won songwriting awards from Billboard and Tumbleweed Song Contest. Dillon's 2018 album, "A Game of Swans" was inspired and informed by her passion for genealogy and hearkens back to her immigrant roots in the Old Country while maintaining her gaze firmly forward. The 12 tracks on "A Game of Swans" reveal ancestral strains of Celtic folk culture migrated to America, strains that have always flowed just beneath the surface of Dillon's music. To achieve the perfect colors, tones and authenticity for the album, contributing tracks from the UK and Scotland were blended with recordings made in the USA. UK musos, Gavin Sutherland (Sutherland Brothers & Quiver), Ian Lang (Small Change), Chris Parks (Any Trouble) and Ollie Collins (Badly Drawn Boy/Angie Palmer) combine their prodigious talents with American contributors Stacy Phillips (Dobro), Michael Connelly (fiddle/uilleann pipes/penny whistle), Wes Weddell (mandolin), Chris Leighton (percussion), Garey Shelton (bass guitar/engineer) and harmony vocalists, Joy Mills and Tom Parker. Dillon writes compellingly, poetically and sometimes mysteriously in her stories in song. This talent elevates her writing far beyond the usual fare of singer-songwriters. She initially found inspiration in dreams and in traveling across the vast landscapes of the western US. The past few years she has delved deeply into her family's history in Ireland, Scotland, Europe and Britain,. This has resulted in new inspiration and newly minted stories. Dillon is traveling a path that we all should travel. She's unearthed amazing facts along the way such as her father fought in the brutal Battle of the Bulge in World War II and her 7th great-grand-uncle in Scotland wrote a treatise called Lex Rex upon which the 2nd amendment was based. Through her music and through following her muse, she's uncovering the intense, heart-breaking stories that people don't always want to tell, the stories that are only whispered about in families. Her new album echoes with the strengths and challenges of history, the promise of new hopes and dreams and draws out the ghosts of many untold stories.

Emily Anderson - Alaskan Songstress & FAI First Timer 0 E. Anderson Emily Anderson Hi Folks!  I'm an indie pop singer/songwriter hailing from Fairbanks, Alaska - land of too many moose and not enough sunshine (at least right now). This is my first time at Folk Alliance and I can't wait to connect with artists from all around the world! Here's a bit about me and the music I make, including my latest release "Simple Things". Contact Phone: 907-347-7176 Email: Listen: or Location: Fairbanks, AK Latest Album - "Simple Things" "Whether you're having a bad day or having one of the best days in a long time, Emily Anderson's Simple Things will make it better. Harmonies that sound so natural and gorgeous orchestrations are at the heart of both the toe-tapping melodies and lyrical songwriting that pulls you into a story that you'll want to experience again and again." —Lori Neufeld, Alaska Public Radio Like stumbling into a rose garden on a trek through the arctic, listeners of Emily’s music find themselves helplessly lifted into a world so hauntingly familiar, and yet so enchantingly curious. With a voice of untouchable purity and lyricism of remarkable wit and poignancy, Emily cradles matters of the human heart with an almost impossible sweetness. After many years of studying songwriting & music business in Boston, and with several tours and recording projects under her belt, Emily has returned to her native Fairbanks and risen to deserving prominence in the tightly knit music scene in Alaska. In fitting testament to this, she received the Rasmuson Foundation’s Individual Artist award in 2016 to assist her in making a full-length album. This new record, Simple Things, perhaps her most ambitious and stunning project to date, is available for streaming and download everywhere.

The Super Saturated Sugar Strings FAI debut from Alaska 0 The Super Saturated Sugar Strings "A few bands have a knack for defying convention, yet sound hauntingly familiar, by blending old influences with new approaches to music. Listening to Anchorage’s Super Saturated Sugar Strings... brings to mind numerous styles and influences: gypsy jazz, music hall, a little country swing, folky strings, Dylanesque/Johnny Cashesque gruffness, and honestly, some of their music wouldn’t sound out of place at a Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds show. Call it orchestral alternative folk-rock, throw in all the adjectives you want, but really, just go to one of their shows and listen. This is a musicians’ band, where violin, cello, and acoustic bass combine with piano/guitar, drums, and a one-man brass section to bring a vibrant, rich, clear acoustic sound to the stage, and to listeners’ ears." --Portland Radio Project Hello FAI! A few of us attended last year representing the Alaska Room, and we may have met you then. We're bringing the full band this year along with a new full album, and would love to play a showcase in your room!  We just finished a very successful tour in OR and WA playing for rapt and full audiences in many of the smaller venues across these states. We were invited back to bigger venues in every place we played, and we're planning to tour much more over the next year.  Please let us know if you still have space for us!
