The Meadows Brothers
Ian and Dustin Meadows have been making music together for most of their lives. In 2011, they made the decision to leave the band they were playing in, and strike out on their own as a duo. Their distinct brand of roots music draws inspiration from a myriad of influences; combining Folk, Blues, Country, and Rock n’ roll genres into what The Boston Globe calls “An engagingly twangy sibling sound all their own.”
The brothers’ original songs; which they typically write together, have been lauded for their emotive, relatable lyrics and memorable hooks.They have performed hundreds of shows around their native New England, the Midwest and Great Lakes Regions, and down the East Coast; continuing to hone their craft and making new friends and fans along the way.
Cellist and singer Laura Wolf Schatz uses live looping, effect pedals and various instruments to weave a penetrating world of sound. Having performed with various contemporary and classical ensembles, her debut solo EP Stitch One (2017) was met with critical praise, deemed "beautifully immersive" and "distinctly enchanting" by Gold Flake Paint. She is currently workshopping her newest work bridging spacious experimentalism with pop driven songs. She is Brooklyn based and has performed as a touring/live member of various ensembles, most recently The Shivers and Matt Pond PA.
