Singer-songwriter and guitarist Brooke Annibale possesses a magnetic voice and expressive songwriting capabilities. Her latest full-length record, Hold to the Light, continues to push sonic boundaries by offering a fusion of textured electronic and traditional instrumentation, while remaining true to her acoustic beginnings. Produced by Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Lake Street Dive) and featuring guest musicians Josh Kaufman (The National), Matt Douglas (Sylvan Esso), and Zach Hickman (Ray Lamontagne, Josh Ritter), Hold to the Light marks several major departures for Annibale in songwriting and production. Her thoughtful, layered songwriting anchors the production to explore a range of narratives working through themes of seeking truths, letting go, and reconciling the past with the present.
Annibale’s songs have appeared in several television shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, Hart of Dixie, and Vampire Diaries. She has shared stages with Iron & Wine, Margaret Glaspy, Chadwick Stokes, Rufus Wainwright, and Aoife O’Donovan. In 2011, she released her first full-length record, Silence Worth Breaking, followed by the EP Words in Your Eyes (2013) and The Simple Fear (2015).
Annibale is in the process of releasing acoustic versions of songs on an upcoming EP (recorded at her new intimate studio in Rhode Island), and is currently writing and recording her next collection of songs.
Hayley Sabella's music is just shy of fitting in. Massachusetts-born but Nicaragua-raised, Hayley mixes gripping melodies with honest, intimate lyrics to create sonic landscapes both spare and lush, all delivered with unabashed earnestness. Her 2018 album Forgive the Birds garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone Country, Billboard, and The Bluegrass Situation, among other publications. 2020 brings her forthcoming EP, Flew the Nest.
