PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

No matter his material, Canadian musician AHI (pronounced "eye") has one unbreakable songwriting rule: he must see himself-and some truth-in his songs.


"When it comes to songwriting, my stuff has to be honest, and I have to feel like the song I sing can be spoken to someone or said to someone in a conversation," AHI says. "I have to be able to see myself in the narrator's seat, and even if it's not my specific story there has to be something in the song that's coming from my voice and persona."


Unabashed honesty from a singer unafraid to bare it all is echoed in In Our Time, an album complicit in its sense of balance and existence on the cusp-sonically, thematically, emotionally, and aesthetically. Although even the album's most hopeful and optimistic songs bear themes of struggle and overcoming odds, but there is beauty in its darkness. AHI deftly weaves these threads together to give listeners an unfettered look into his life.


Threads of Michael Kiwanuka, the Head and the Heart, Shakey Graves, and Alabama Shakes can be felt throughout In Our Time, though AHI's pantheon points to a dearly departed yet disparate trio, each of whom possessed an earnestness that rings true today: Bob Marley, Tupac Shakur, and Michael Jackson. "Those were all honest guys who had a vulnerability that transcended their music," he says. "People feel that honesty in my music, which is how it helps connect."


Coral Moons is a retro-rock band from Boston with roots in blues and soul. They recently released their debut EP, Quarter Life Crisis. Boston's local NPR station, WGBH, featured Coral Moons in an article alongside Clairo, Brittany Howard, and Allen Stone, saying their debut single "Fall in Love" is "a nostalgic retro rock song rooted in soul with a catchy hook."

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

On stage, bassist Jon Samuels is the only member of Friendship who stands, swaying back and forth as the songs bear down, pulling together and apart. Friendship's newest release, Dreamin' (planned for release on November 8), is an exorable wave of motion, endlessly rocking between intimacy and loneliness.


The contemplative alt-country songs on Dreamin' were recorded to tape in July 2018 with the help of the Low Anthem's Jeff Prystowsky. The band moved away from the inclusion of digitally programmed drums and Rhodes piano for Dreamin', opting instead for a warmer, more organic aesthetic and a starker performance. Most of the songs took shape while Dan Wriggins (vocals and guitar) and Mike Cormier (drums) worked and lived as groundskeepers at a private estate in Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, frequently driving to Philadelphia for shows. The record is set in the country and the city-community, peacefulness, and isolation can be heard and felt throughout the album.


Wendy Eisenberg is an improvising guitarist, banjo-player, vocalist, and poet. Using the languages of free jazz, new music, metal, art song, her music challenges the representational and technical demands placed on a guitar and a banjo in contemporary music.



She has two solo careers: improviser/composer, and songwriter. Eisenberg's debut record as an improviser, Its Shape Is Your Touch, came out in October 2018. Her trio, The Machinic Unconscious, with Ches Smith and Trevor Dunn, released their debut album on Tzadik that same month. Both records made Billboard's Critic's Choice Top Ten Jazz Records year-end list, and received features and attention from NPR and National Sawdust. Her album of quiet art-pop songs, Time Machine was remastered and re-released on Feeding Tube records on September 7th, 2018.


In addition to her work as a solo artist, she has written and performed in numerous projects, including the critically acclaimed experimental band Birthing Hips, described by NPR as "brainy, noisy punk based in sonic adventure, technical mastery, and rejection of the status quo." She leads a rock trio, Editrix, which explores similar parameters.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Joan Shelley, a singer-songwriter who lives near Louisville, Kentucky, features work that wrestles with the possibility of reconciling, if only for a moment, the perceived "natural" world with its reflection. Her fifth album, Like the River Loves the Sea, was released in August.


Although Shelley draws inspiration from traditional (and traditionally minded) performers from her native Kentucky, as well as those from Ireland, Scotland, and England, she isn't a folk singer. Her disposition aligns more closely with those of Roger Miller, Dolly Parton, and fellow Kentuckian Tom T. Hal.


Since the 2015 release of her album Over and Even, Shelley has crossed the country and toured Europe several times as a headlining artist, sharing shows with artists such as Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Doug Paisley, Daniel Martin Moore, and Michael Hurley. She has opened for Wilco, Chris Smither, Andrew Bird, and Richard Thompson.


On Out of Sight, his third album, guitarist, singer, and master interpreter Jake Xerxes Fussell is joined for the first time by a full band. The transporting selection of traditional folk songs address the troubles and delights of love, work, and wine-the things that matter.


Out of Sight contains "The River St. Johns," a fishmonger's cry that sounds like an astral lament; "Winnsboro Cotton Mill Blues," a cotton-mill tune that humorously explores the unknown terrain of death and memory; and "Drinking of the Wine," a fishermen's shanty/gospel song equally concerned with terrestrial boozing and heavenly transcendence.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Kate Davis picked up a violin at age 5 and a bass at 13. She joined the Portland Youth Philharmonic before puberty and the Grammy Jazz Ensemble before adolescence.


By the time she graduated high school, Davis won the Presidential Scholar in the Arts Award and a full ride to the Manhattan School of Music. By the time she graduated college, she received ASCAP's Robert Allen Award and slots at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.


As a young adult, the virtuoso claimed enthusiastic endorsements from NPR, MTV, PBS, and BBC, as well as invitations to the stage from Herbie Hancock, Ben Folds, Alison Krauss, and Jeff Goldblum. Most recently, she cowrote Sharon Van Etten's hit single "Seventeen," and contributed to the soundtrack for the film Five Feet Apart.


She plans to release her debut indie rock album Trophy in November. Throughout 12 tumultuous tracks, Davis poetically reflects on the intricacies of what it means to live, ruminating on topics close to her heart-identity, self-worth, and loss.


Brooklyn singer-songwriter Jesse Ruben has a simple and direct message: I can. You can. We can. When Ruben wrote his song "We Can," he had just run the New York City Marathon and hoped to inspire others to start running. A few months after releasing the track, an elementary school in Vancouver, Canada, reached out, saying they had been playing it to inspire students. They asked Ruben to fly in and perform the song for their school, and so began The We Can Project.

"A country pop rookie who can write a chorus like Sia" (PAPER), Ingrid Andress is chipping away at expectations of herself and her sound with debut single "More Hearts Than Mine." Praised by HITS magazine for its "honesty and vulnerability virtually absent on Country radio," the recently named iHeartCountry On The Verge artist performed her "elegantly written song" (NY Times) on NBC's TODAY a week after it became the most-added new single at country radio. The Atlantic Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist made her first national TV appearance earlier this year on Late Night with Seth Meyers performing her major-label debut, "Lady Like," only two months after its release. With several co-writer credits to her name, including Charli XCX's "Boys" and FLETCHER's "About You," the Colorado-native first honed her skills writing with heavy hitters in the music community such as Sam Hunt and Alicia Keys and has received additional critical acclaim from People, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Vulture, and many more. With the release of her latest tracks "Both" and "We're Not Friends," Andress' new music continues to prove her as one of the most unique and moving vocalists in the country space and beyond; one that is thrillingly honest, raw and refreshing in a way rarely seen emanating from Music City.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Madison McFerrin is an independent singer-songwriter based in Brooklyn, NY. In December of 2016, she quietly introduced her soulful take on a cappella to the world when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. I. After one listen, tastemaking DJ, Gilles Peterson, snatched up her standout track, "No Time to Lose," for his Brownswood Bubblers compilation. Leading up to her sold out debut show at Joe's Pub, the New York Times remarked how her sound "shows wonderful vocal dexterity, deftly swerving from sharp, clearly enunciated staccato bursts to fluttery, free-form melismata."



In February of 2018, she gave her listeners more of her distinctive sound that Questlove dubbed "soul-appella" when she self-released Finding Foundations: Vol. II. Her SXSW 2018 debut led legendary KCRW DJ Anne Litt to remark, "there's some sort of joy and beauty in the way that she performs that really drew me in all that much more." Pitchfork Magazine followed this up by declaring, "Madison McFerrin is making a cappella cool again" in a Rising Artist profile. She subsequently performed at Pitchfork's Rising Artist showcase at Northside Fest, OctFest, Paris Avant Garde showcase and inaugural Midwinter Event at the Art Institute of Chicago. Along with these noteworthy performances, Madison has also dazzled European crowds with her one-woman show of looping hypnotic harmonies live from London to Poland.



Beyond the stage, Madison's one-of-a-kind vocals can be heard in episodes of Comedy Central's Broad City and HBO's Random Acts of Flyness.



This year, Madison plans to build upon this momentum by pairing her timeless voice with modern production on her new project, You + I, which quickly had its lead single "TRY" rack up 500K+ views in her debut COLORS session.

We recognize the power in women lifting other women up and want to celebrate that. By striving to be the most authentic versions of ourselves, we give others permission to do the same for themselves.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Over the course of two decades together, Los Angeles based indie rock band Louden Swain has released a series of impressively accomplished albums, toured successfully throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, and built a dedicated social media following-all without the support of a mainstream record label.



Taking their name from the plucky protagonist of the '80s film Vision Quest, singer Rob Benedict, bassist Mike Borja and drummer Stephen Norton launched the band in 1997, after meeting at a party in Los Angeles. Their early punk-inspired sound quickly expanded into a more adventurous and experimental sensibility, while maintaining the tuneful, emotionally open approach that first endeared the group to its fans on the early
releases 2001's Able-Legged Heroes, 2003's Overachiever, and 2006's Suit And Tie.



The addition of lead guitarist Billy Moran in 2006 allowed the band to finally realize the sonic vision that they'd been hearing in their heads.



Those epic visions and expanded horizons manifested themselves on the albums A Brand New Hurt (2009), Eskimo (2011), Sky Alive (2014), No Time Like The Present (2017), and their most recent release - an acoustic re-imagining of songs from their vast catalog - Splitting The Seams (2018). Along the way the band discovered a rabid fanbase propelled by fans of The CW's hit television show Supernatural which featured lead singer Rob Benedict in the role of Chuck The Prophet.



Splitting The Seams is a new chapter for Louden Swain, one that reconnects them with their past, while forging ahead into new territory as they continue to reach out to both old and new audiences on the road throughout 2019.
