PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Katie Pruitt is a Nashville, Tennessee, transplant from the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. Featuring a passionate delivery and powerful message, she has sold out shows internationally and performed at festivals such as Americana, 420 Fest, and Pilgrimage.


William Prince's trajectory from Peguis First Nation in Manitoba, Canada, to opening for Neil Young, has seen the relative newcomer find esteem and career-changing opportunity wherever he performs. For his eagerly-awaited sophomore album, songwriter William Prince reconvened with producers Dave Cobb in Nashville and Scott Nolan in Winnipeg, the team behind his JUNO Award winning debut and subsequent Glassnote Records reissue, Earthly Days. With the song "Breathless," which found audiences worldwide and reached the B List at BBC's Radio 2, Earthly Days introduced Prince's poignant philosophy and rich baritone to the world. Shaped by Prince's influences and references, from the gospel of his childhood to the pantheon of classic outlaw country singers, Reliever approaches the big questions in life with humility and curiosity.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

2019 saw Cub Sport undergo a transformation from local indie band to global pop powerhouse. With sell out dates across 4 continents, and a community and message that is impacting lives worldwide, the prolific independent Brisbane group are forging their own path to global acclaim.


The energy around Cub Sport is fearless and captures the uniquely vulnerable writing and vocal delivery that saw the group reach new heights on their 2019, self-titled album Cub Sport, winning praise everywhere from Billboard, i-D, Nylon, PAPER Magazine, Gay Times, Attitude, The Fader and Line of Best Fit to DUMMY, Monocle, Music Week, and many more. 


To close out a huge 2019, December saw Cub Sport release 333; a collection of three songs that fit together to conjure a feeling of deep and healing euphoria. 333 sweeps you up in all-encompassing hypnotic sonics; the chordal and harmonic combinations feel like a pang in your chest - there are forces of beauty, sorrow, growth, pain and joy. It’s renewing, uplifting, and affirming.


While it has been an astronomical past year of musical wins for the band, the most striking part of Cub Sport’s rise has been the way they’ve used their platform to share a message of love - encouraging and inspiring people all around the world to live fearlessly and to love themselves.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION



Australian-born singer-songwriter Harrison Storm paves the way for honest lyrics and bold musical experimentation in his latest EP, Falling Down.


A born troubadour, Storm traded college for busking in Melbourne. The fruits of his impromptu performances financed Sense of Home, his 2015 debut EP, which has generated roughly 50 million Spotify streams. Two years later, Storm released the EP Change It All. Along the way, he appeared on coveted playlists such as Your Favorite Coffeehouse, Relax & Unwind, and The Stress Buster. He also made a name for himself on the road with acts such as Snow Patrol, Gregory Alan Isakov, SYML, and Ziggy Alberts.


In 2018, he began cowriting, crafting the single “Feeling You” in a Nashville studio alongside Sam Ashworth. Within a few months, the song amassed more than 10 million cumulative streams. “Run” followed, with its eloquent fingerpicked guitar and hypnotic harmonies, setting the stage for the EP Falling Down.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Sammy Miller and The Congregation are on a mission, crisscrossing the country like a vaudevillian revival show with evangelic fervor for music. The seven-piece band is pulling people out of their solitary lives and putting them in the moment with a bracing dose of joyful jazz performed with infectious theatricality. The New York City-based, familial collective has captured its frenetic energy and unflinchingly optimistic songwriting on its debut album,Leaving Egypt.


Sammy Miller and The Congregation has been described as a mashup of the sensibilities of Ben Folds and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. The band freely mixes vocal and instrumental tracks live and on record, asking the audience to go along for the ride with the lead melody being carried by vocalists half the time, and instruments the other half.


The seven-piece group is a community of adventurous and charismatic superstar musicians who are conservatory-trained but who have not lost their childlike wonder and awe for playing music. The band lineup is Sammy Miller, drums and vocals; Sam Crittenden, trombone; Ben Flocks, tenor sax; Sammy's sister Molly Miller on guitar; Alphonso Horne, trumpet; Corbin Jones, bass and tuba; and David Linard, piano. Independently, the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Lady Gaga, Jason Mraz, and Beyonce.

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.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Hailing from the fertile land of Wisconsin, Dead Horses are known for frontwoman Sarah Vos' "aching, haunting vocals" (No Depression), "evocative, empathetic storytelling" (NPR Music), and a sound that bridges indie-folk and their own Midwestern approach to Americana. Lyrically, the band explores the human condition from personal musings to observations of the current American experience, taking notes from every person and city they meet along the road.

First introduced on a national scale through tours with friends including Mandolin Orange and Trampled by Turtles, Dead Horses have performed on such legendary stages as Red Rocks Amphitheater, and have even opened for UK rockers, The Who.

Their critically acclaimed third album, My Mother the Moon, earned profiles from Billboard to Noisey to Democracy Now!, spots in Folk Alley's and No Depression's "Best Folk/Roots Albums of 2018" lists; their single "Turntable" is nearing 20MM streams on Spotify, and Rolling Stone Country declared them an "Artist You Need to Know".

Nandi Rose is on her own again, and three songs into her forthcoming album The Caretaker, the singer, songwriter and producer declares her fearlessness: “Baby don’t worry about me, I don’t worry about you.” Here, on “Ordinary Talk,” Rose meditates on the heaviness of ordinary moments, the constellation of tears and chores and self-doubt and small talk that comprise being a person, accompanied by her most cinematic, pulsing arrangements to date. It’s an apt introduction to The Caretaker, an album that negotiates the space between working alone and with others, between isolation and connection. The result is her boldest work yet. Even the album cover seems to declare a statement of intent in high resolution, a deliberate move from the obscured, muted mystery of her previous work: the artist’s sharp image radiates before a brilliant blue storm, staring you right in the eye. Over the course of eleven songs, Rose creates the lush world of a humid summer night, dreaming of and reaching for a season in which she is her “best self.” Referring to the album’s title, she says, “I kind of created a character. She’s someone who has been entrusted with taking care of this estate, taking care of the land, and she’s not doing a very good job. The weeds are growing everywhere, and she’s not taking care of herself.” For Rose, the character of The Caretaker serves as a warning of who she could become if she’s not more vigilant, and the resulting album sees her grappling with her desire for independence and the knotty reality that we need each other. The Caretaker follows critically acclaimed album Lavender, named for the lavender that once grew in her grandmother’s garden. And on her most recent collection, Rose’s family history and intergenerational stories continue to seep their way into the songs. “There’s a family legacy of losing and seeking homes, a theme that has followed me,” she reflects, pointing to her mother’s journey as an Indian refugee from Uganda, and her grandmother’s displacement from Lahore after the partition of India. Rose herself was raised surrounded by the Berkshire mountains in Williamstown, Massachusetts, and today she finds inspiration in the shock of seasons of the Hudson Valley where she currently resides
