PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
This record is about a band that found each other and also found a home. It's about a couple of magic nights SistaStrings and I spent, crammed into the back of a listening room called the Cafe Carpe - jammed full of people, joyfully playing the songs we'd learned over our few years of becoming an ensemble, all happily unaware that the world was already changing, that because of the pandemic already underway the entire world of listening rooms and intimate live audiences was about to disappear for who- knows how long.

I started playing at the Cafe Carpe when I was a kid. At the time, I thought it was the coolest little venue I'd ever seen. After thirty years of international travel I realize that it's one of the most soulful, deep listening rooms in the world. I've developed a reverence for the place, a camaraderie with the characters who work there. I've slept in their home above the venue (it's an old brick building on the Rock River in the small Midwestern city of Fort Atkinson) countless times. I've come to love the people and the room, to curate a tiny winter festival there, to visit even when I'm not playing a gig. I've bonded with artists who were a generation older than me, played countless song-swaps with my peers, and begun mentoring the next generation.

I met my fellow Milwaukeeans SistaStrings a few years back, and we clicked instantly, and began playing together with my old friend, the drummer Nathan Kilen. The sound immediately made sense: Chauntee and Monique play with tremendous intuition, technical ability, and (impossible to teach) spaciousness. They never bump into each other, or into me. They're utterly deft with harmony and space. And Nathan's tiny drum kit, which he developed so he could travel with me on my bicycle tours, rounds the quartet out perfectly. My acoustic guitar holds down the low end, Nathan and I become the rhythm section, Chauntee and Monique become the harmonic architecture, and all I have to do is ride the wave and deliver the songs.

For their parts, Chauntee and Monique had this to say about the album:

"Playing with this group of musicians feels like linking up with my favorite cousins. The love and respect we have for each other definitely affects how we interact with each other musically. The time spent on this project was surrounded in love, laughter, and wanting to bring our best to the listener." - Chauntee Ross

"WOW! I am still astonished at how much work we did in such a short amount of time! I couldn't imagine this experience with a different group of individuals. The vibes continue to flow while the love continues to grow. looking forward to sharing this music with the world and looking forward to creating more music with my forever family." - Monique Ross

The Carpe embraced SistaStrings immediately: the audience sensed, correctly, that they were encountering a national treasure. Nathan and I feel the same. As grizzled, mid-career veterans, there is nothing that revitalizes your love of music like playing night after night with virtuosos who are hungry and playful and just keep getting better.

The songs on this record are the strongest things we could come up with - a few of my older tunes, a few of my newer co-writes, some unreleased tunes, and then of course Woody Guthrie, Iron and Wine, the Jayhawks, Daniel Johnston.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION


"Rising Star" is not a phrase one would normally use to describe an artist like Griffin House, who has been touring for over 15 years and has recorded 12 studio albums.



 



The title of Griffin House’s upcoming release,”Rising Star,” references the first track on the album, which tells the story of a character who moves to Music City, like so many do, with a guitar and a dream. Although not intended to be auto-biographical, the listener gets the sense that this comical and fictitious tale could hardly have been woven by someone without a similar life experience to the protagonist in “Rising Star.”



 



Indeed, House’s story began in much the same way. He moved to Nashville in 2003, as a young man, with not much more than a guitar, and a handful of songs. He took a part-time job downtown on Broadway at Legend’s Gifts, biding his time before he caught his big break. That big break came, after just a few months, in the form of a phone call from Island Def Jam records that jumpstarted his career and led to him signing with CAA and Nettwerk Records.



 



After that, things happened quickly for House. His 2004 debut album “Lost and Found” was lauded by music critics such as Bill Flanagan (Executive VP MTV/VH1 Networks) who featured House on the CBS Sunday Morning show as one of the “best emerging songwriters.” House began touring, opening for acts like John Mellencamp and the Cranberries, and found himself meeting people like Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson. House seemed poised to be more of an “overnight success” rather than a ”rising star,” but that’s not exactly how things turned out. “I’ve been a “rising star” for the past 15 years” House jokes, “it’s a slow rise.”

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Author, columnist, and comedian Steve Hofstetter is often called the hardest working man in show-business. With all due respect to the late James Brown.


Hofstetter's national TV debut came on ESPN's Quite Frankly, where Stephen A. Smith yelled at him for three minutes. Hofstetter has also appeared on CBS' "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson", Showtime's "White Boyz in the Hood", VH1's "Countdown", Sundance's "On the Road in America", and ABC's "Barbara Walter's Special", where he thankfully did not cry. He is the host and executive producer of "Laughs" on Fox networks, where he only cries occasionally.


One of the top booked acts on the college circuit, the original writer for collegehumor.com has also released six albums. Hofstetter has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com, and NHL.com, where he publicly admitted to being a Ranger fan.


After hosting Four Quotas on Sirius Satellite Radio for two seasons, Hofstetter moved to broadcast radio, and his Sports Minute (Or So) was syndicated on over 170 stations and in over 30 newspapers. Hofstetter's second live comedy album ("Cure For the Cable Guy") reached #20 on Billboard's comedy charts. His third album ("Dark Side of the Room") was the first ever pay-what-you-want" comedy album, since people were going to steal it anyway. His fourth album consisted of an hour of 100% ad-libbed material, which is, frankly, nuts. And his fifth album hit #1 on iTunes' comedy charts, which is also a bit nuts.


Hofstetter's brutal tour schedule consists of over 100 colleges and dozens of clubs every year, and is fueled by an immense online popularity, tons of press, and a Prius with great gas mileage. He reached 200,000 friends on Facebook (still the world record), 400,000 more on MySpace, and high shelves in grocery stores.


While Hofstetter's live shows are routinely sold out, he is best known for his writing, first published at age 15, mainly to impress girls. At 18, he co-founded "Sports Jerk of the Week", an irreverent website featured by press like USA Today's Baseball Weekly, Sports Illustrated and CNN. And at 20, Hofstetter took a year off of school to head up web content for the New York Yankees. The Yankees won the World Series that year, which would have been wonderful if they hadn't beaten Hofstetter's Mets. Yes, he's also a Mets fan. Poor kid.


While an undergraduate at Columbia University, Hofstetter was a well-read columnist for the Columbia Daily Spectator and a voice of the Lions. After a summer writing for Maxim, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated for Kids, Hofstetter syndicated his column in several newspapers.


Without his glasses, Hofstetter also looks a great deal like Michael Rappaport.

The band Dearth began in 2017 when drummer Braden Huffman met bassist Ivan Skryagin. The two got together for a jam and there was an immediate rapport. Joined by a guitarist extraordinaire Lucas Bielejewski (who was replaced by James Strelow a year later) they began creating their own brand of eclectic, uniquely composed instrumental rock music with an emphasis on complex forms and good grooves. Saxophonist Brennan Connors is a recent addition who brings even more color and vitality to the mix. Braden Huffman moved to Wisconsin from Ohio. He has played with Neens, Disq, Lover's Spit, Cowboy Winter and Gloss Coats. He loves the Beach Boys, The Beatles, Zappa, Slayer, Fugazi, Stephen King and Star Wars. Ivan Skryagin is from Novocheboksarsk, Russia and didn't play in front of people until forming Dearth, but he's also performed with Tani Diakite and the Afrofunkstars. His primary influences are Russian classical music, metal, jazz, Danny Elfman, and Soviet cartoon scores. James Strelow hails from Waterford, Wisconsin. He has played in Dash Hounds, Melkweed, Pocket Park and Bronson Wisconsin. He loves classic rock, country and all things metal. Brennan Connors is a Madison native. He's performed in many bands and played musical styles from all over the Western Hemisphere. He was a member of James Earl Tate's blues band and the popular hip-hop/rock group Know Boundaries until moving to Chicago in 2004. He worked with numerous jazz, blues, and Brazilian artists while living there. Now back in Madison, Brennan performs regularly with the Brazilian band Samba Novistas and leads the free jazz trio Brennan Connors & Stray Passage.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Steve Forbert's folk-rock career has spanned four decades and counting. In June 1976, the twenty-one year old boarded a train in Meridian, Mississippi bound for New York City, then the epicenter of folk music. His combination of musicianship and authenticity demanded notice. In less than two years, he went from being a street performer and living at the YMCA to filling historic Greenwich Village clubs and signing a major label record contract with Nemperor Records.

From 1978 to 1982, Forbert released four acclaimed albums. Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild wrote that "now or then, you would be hard-pressed to find a debut effort that was
simultaneously as fresh and accomplished as Alive on Arrival... it was like a great first novel by a young author who somehow managed to split the difference between Mark Twain and J.D. Salinger."

Forbert's second studio release, Jackrabbit Slim went RIAA Gold Certified with its Billboard #11 hit "Romeo's Tune" Recording success vaulted Steve onto a broader musical stage, touring the U.S. and Europe many times over. Forbert even appeared opposite Cyndi Lauper in her music video for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". His early accomplishments would be a career for most artists, but he continues to write, record, and perform to this day. His artistic pursuit has resulted in twenty studio albums and numerous live releases, compilations, and accolades. His songs have been recorded by Keith Urban, Rosanne Cash and Marty Stuart.

Any Old Time, a retrospective of the music of Meridian's Jimmie Rodgers, received a 2003 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Folk Album. As Rodger's music has inspired Forbert, so has Forbert's music influenced a new generation of artists.

In 2017, twenty-one artists paid tribute to Steve by recording a compilation titled: An American Troubadour: The Songs of Steve Forbert, further validating his artistic legacy. Forbert's 2018 memoir Big City Cat: My Life in Folk-Rock serves as a primer for young musicians setting out on their own journeys.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Nobody's Girl is an Austin based songwriting trio formed by award-winning writers and performers BettySoo, Rebecca Loebe, and Grace Pettis. After years of running into each other at festivals and shows on the road, the three South Austin neighbors have united to create something truly special.Their harmonies' unique vocal blend is on display in their first full length album, the self-titled Nobody's Girl, which comes out via Lucky Hound Music on July 10, 2020. The new record features nine original tunes that the trio co-wrote together for this project, as well as two hand-picked originals. Produced by Michael Ramos (Patty Griffin, Lila Downs, Pat Green, etc.), the group are perfectly framed by a who's who of modern legends from the Austin music scene.The first singles: "Kansas" (March 6th), "Rescued" (May 15th), and "Tiger" (June 19th) are crystal clear examples of the chemistry these three writers share. In these songs - and the record as a whole - they explore themes of personal, social, and political division; rebelling against societal expectations; and leaving behind confining expectations of family and small hometowns. They ruminate on the challenges of finding one's path in the world, being on the verge of making really bad decisions in the face of mounting stress, mourning the end of something good, being unsure of the legacy of our collective histories...and also letting loose and having some fun. There's beauty and depth.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
American Songwriter describes Eilen Jewell as one of America's most intriguing, creative and idiosyncratic voices. The Boise, Idaho songwriter is one of a kind.

That singular voice springs forth from a woman of more than one mind, and she taps into many of them on Gypsy (August, 2019 Signature Sounds Recordings). By turns personal and political, pissed off and blissed out, Jewell's first album of original material since 2015 expands brief moments of joy into lifetimes, and distills epic sentiments and persistent doubts into succinct songs.

Jewell seamlessly blends heavy electric guitars and dirty fiddles on the rollicking country rocker Crawl with the sweet and understated horn section of the tender Witness. 79 Cents (The Meow Song) skewers sexism and discrimination with pointed humor over a circus bed of musical saw and horns.

Longtime fans who love Eilen Jewell in classic country mode will delight in the pedal steel driven These Blues and the sole cover on Gypsy, You Cared Enough To Lie, written by fellow Idahoan and country legend Pinto Bennett.

Rather than pulling artist and listener this way and that, the tensions within and between these twelve tracks propel Eilen Jewell's eighth studio album forward as a remarkably cohesive full length.

Adams launched his solo career with Gather Up (2006), a brooding, autumnal album recorded in his apartment. Its hushed melancholy won rave reviews and led to Leavetaking (2008), an understated folk rock album that featured the hit "The Longer I Run", followed by Traces (2009), and Between Us (2011), collectively selling over 275,000 single downloads. Adams continues his introspective explorations of the middle ground between hope and heartache on The Mighty Storm.

Long before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Music City there was a riddle spewing prophet of roots rock and roll. A bluesy blast of baritone bombast. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll - with a strong side of Outlaw Country. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty. A native of Hattiesburg, Wilder's 1986 debut album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine in 2018. Webb's engaging personality led him to become one of America's first Satellite DJs on XM Radio. He's now the host of the Americana Countdown show on WMOT radio/Nashville as well as continuing his three decade career as an Electrifying Artist on stages worldwide. "Webb flat out rocks! They serve up potent Southern comfort." Rolling Stone Magazine "With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse, Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle "These days the term 'roots rocker' is almost meaningless, but Wilder's blend of a rocker's heart with a hillbilly's soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet." Time Out Chicago "Discover the mystery, the madness, and the magic of the man called Wilder. A giant standing proudly above lesser talents." That Devil Music

That's not by accident; it's very much by design. It's the result of a man giving himself over in gratitude and service to something bigger than himself. “I'm grateful to music,” he says. “I have a life that feels deeply good, but when I started playing music, nothing in my life felt that good. I started to write songs because I wanted to find a way to make my life feel as good as I felt when I heard a great song. I don't think I'd be alive now if it had not been for music.”

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Carrie Newcomer is a songwriter, recording artist, performer, and educator. She has been described as a “prairie mystic” by the Boston Globe and, “asks all the right questions,” by Rolling Stone, “a voice as rich as Godiva chocolate.” by The Austin Statesman, and, "She's the kind of artist whose music makes you stop, think and then say, 'that is so true.’” by The Dallas Morning News. Recent appearances on PBS’s Religion and Ethics and the National Award Winning Krista Tippett’s On Being, have focused on her use of creative art-form as a spiritual/mindfulness practice, her work in social/ environmental justice, interfaith dialogue, progressive spirituality and as a champion for a new political conversation.





She has toured with Alison Krauss in Europe and the United States. Nickel Creek recorded Newcomer’s song, “I Should’ve Known Better,” on their Grammy-winning album, This Side. In the fall of 2009 and 2011 Newcomer was a cultural ambassador to India, invited by the American Embassy of India. In October 2011 she released her interfaith collaborative benefit album, Everything is Everywhere, with world master of the Indian Sarod, Amjad Ali Khan. In June 2012 Carrie Newcomer traveled to Kenya, Africa, performing in schools, hospitals, spiritual communities and AIDS hospitals. In 2013 Carrie visited organizations dedicated to nonviolent conflict resolution through the arts and the empowerment of women in the Middle East. Huffington Post Religion Community listed her song, “Holy as the Day is Spent,” as one of the best spiritual songs of 2012. She was listed as one of “the 50 most influential folk musicians of the past 50 years” by Chicago’s WFMT. Boston’s WBEZ listed her as one of the most influential folk artists of the last 25 years.
