The Artisanals are a Charleston, SC based band that coalesced in late 2016. Fronted by the Charleston City Paper’s 2015 Singer-Songwriter of the Year, Johnny Delaware (formerly of SUSTO) and an all-star cast of local musicians, the Americana rock outfit has already shared the stage with global powerhouse Band of Horses on several U.S. dates. Having also played with Americana mainstays Nikki Lane, J. Roddy Walston, Daniel Romano, and Dylan LeBlanc, the band is set to break out in 2018 and has been featured in the Huffington Post, Paste Magazine, Daytrotter, PopMatters, & more.
Produced by The Artisanals with Wolfgang Zimmerman, the forthcoming LP Literally, Anywhere is the first ever record to come out of the Magic Barn–a studio-converted barn in Iowa that was built around the Neve console and gear from New York City’s now-defunct Magic Shop Studio. Open from 1988 until March of 2016, the Magic Shop was a sought-after studio beloved by countless legends like Lou Reed and Blondie, for its vintage gear. Arcade Fire tracked The Suburbs there, and David Bowie recorded his last two albums, including Blackstar, at the Soho spot.
With sonic influences ranging from the dream-pop work of George Harrison (“Angel 42”) to the stone-cold radio hits of bands like the Killers (“Roll With It”), the nine-track LP showcases Delaware and Houle’s knack for writing hooks as well as their ear for quality production. The album utilizes everything from a gong, organ, piano, sitar, French horn, trombone, and koto, to a string section sourced from the nearby University of Iowa. There’s no filler here; from start to finish, this record is a straight banger.
Music has always been a meaningful part of Malia’s life but was not really a focus until finally picking up the electric guitar a few years ago. Garnering an early buzz as an acoustic singer/songwriter, her recent studio work and live show reveal that this PNW-raised, LA-based songstress is paving her own way as the lead guitar player in her outfit assembled of friends and collaborators. Malia's current release 'Late Bloomer' is available on all digital platforms.
Preacher & Daisy
Originally from Oberlin, OH, Preacher & Daisy combines an electric performance to folk-based songwriting. Accompanied by a heavy rhythm section, the personal lyrics and soaring guitar riffs make for a powerful listening experience. The band roots itself in an expansion of Sam Bailey solo project released in July, 2017, "Preacher & Daisy." The addition of Eva Hilton, Maddy Baltor, and Cody Edgerly has brought forth a complete and full sound that is quickly gaining excitement from listening audiences.
The Storytellers is a Los Angeles-based progressive folk ensemble whose repertoire represents a unique blend of roots-rock, Americana, country-blues, traditional, jazz, folk and bluegrass music. The Storytellers, who the LA Weekly described as “a cross between The Kingston Trio and John Coltrane”, bring soulful storytelling, three-part harmonies, delicate acoustic sensibilities, soaring grooves and their own hippy, happy magic to every stage they perform on.
