Oliver Bates Craven
Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Oliver Bates Craven is a Nashville based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. The oldest son of a folk-singing preacher, his diverse musical upbringing included a family band, a decade of classical violin lessons, and ultimately skipping football practice to teach himself the guitar playing along to Hendrix records. Oliver has spent the last ten years as a professional musician, and from intimately crowded folk clubs to sold-out festivals, has found himself on North American and European stages more than a thousand times.
A founding member of the revered Americana band The Stray Birds, he has collaborated with such artists as The Wood Brothers, Keller Williams and Mandolin Orange, and worked in studios with producers such as Dan Knobler (Lake Street Dive, Rodney Crowell) and Larry Campbell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm). Stepping out of the band dynamic squarely to the center of the stage, he finds a voice and a style more uniquely his own. A poignant writer with soulful and powerful vocal and instrumental deliveries, accompanied by a sense of performance that honors nuance, movement and originality, his musicality is one of a clearly impassioned and tangible joy.
Conor & The Wild Hunt
Conor & The Wild Hunt is a progressive Americana quartet intent on inspiring positive change in a troubled world. With artful and driving instrumentation, blooming four part harmonies, impassioned duets, and a compelling stage presence, Conor & The Wild Hunt animates soulful original songs with modern takes on Americana traditions.
Conor Brendan is a Folk Pop multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter intent on creating positive change in a troubled world. With visceral story-weaving lyrics and a broad range of instruments, Conor pushes the boundaries of folk, Americana, and pop music.
Aged 22, Conor Brendan has been a recording artist for over a decade. He has written and recorded over 70 songs professionally. Conor & The Wild Hunt is a progressive Americana Quartet, ranging from cinematic ballads to social justice themes, with psychedelic interludes and explosive tribal-like passages. Conor Brendan performed at Boulder Theatre with Trevor Hall, Nahko, Wookiefoot, Earth Guardians, and Tubby Love. He has also performed at other major venues such as World Café Live, Rams Head Live, Gordon Center Theater, Headquarters Live, Rockwood Music Hall, Oregon Ridge Amphitheater, The Cabooze and the Altamont Theater, among others. One of his songs is placed in the show ‘forever’; soon to be aired on Netflix. Conor is a water protector who spent a month on the front lines of Standing Rock, and performed in multiple concerts to support the Sioux Nation, solo and accompanying Peter Yarrow.
