For Upstate, the last few years have been a time of profound exploration and self-discovery. As the band knocked off milestone after milestone on the road, their sound, their lineup, and even their name all underwent dramatic metamorphoses. Challenging and thrilling all at once, those changes have finally culminated in the sextet’s dazzling new album, a collection that showcases both their remarkable growth and their adventurous blend of folk, R&B, jazz, gospel, and rock and roll.
Recorded primarily over six days at the Clubhouse studio in Rhinebeck, NY, ‘Healing’ is the band’s first release with new member Allison Olender, their first with four contributing songwriters, and their first since shortening their name from Upstate Rubdown. It’s also their first project to be produced by Wood Brothers percussionist Jano Rix, who helped the group embrace their transformation and lean in to their unique lineup without sacrificing any of the gorgeous harmonies, eclectic arrangements, and unforgettable performances that have defined the band since their earliest days.
Upstate first emerged from New York’s Hudson Valley in 2015 with their critically acclaimed debut, ‘A Remedy.’ The Poughkeepsie Journal raved that the group “need[s] nothing more than their voices to channel rhythm and stoke your emotions,” while Chronogram hailed their “infectiously sunny organic stew,” and The Alt called them “toe-tapping, contagious, and fun.” The album earned the band festival performances from Mountain Jam to FreshGrass, as well as a slew of national headline dates and support slots with everyone from The Felice Brothers and Phox to Marco Benevento and Cory Henry.

Morsel is a jamgrass band from Denver, Colorado. After meeting in the dorm rooms of CU Boulder in 2013, the group started to play under the name Morsel in late 2016. Since graduating in 2017 and moving to Denver, the group has been cultivating a unique, but distinctly Colorado sound that blends Bluegrass, Americana, and Jam with a style that’s proven to keep you groovin’. In just over two years, Morsel has played shows all over Colorado including sets at The Bluebird Theater, The Fox Theatre, and Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom with artists including Horseshoes & Hand Grenades, Kitchen Dwellers, the Sweet Lillies, and many more. With high energy melodies and timeless lyrics, Morsel is more than just music, it’s a party! Morsel has just released their first music video for their new original single, “Crab Meatballs”, available on the Morsel Youtube and Facebook pages.
Bowregard consists of five members whose roots span the North American Bluegrass scene. Dedicated to the exploration and discovery of a sound uniquely their own within bluegrass and acoustic folk, their sound is defined through their songwriting and uniquely intertwined vocal harmonies. Bowregard draws out the talent each individual band member brings to the table and melds them together in an acoustic powerhouse that packs a punch!
Originally from Savannah, Georgia, Zachary Smith and Colleen Heine (The Accomplices) both moved to Colorado to pursue a continued love of music, where they met guitarist Max Kabat (Jet Edison, Two Fine Fellas) and banjo player James Armington (Timber). With influences from all over the map, Bowregards sound has a refreshing and dynamic feel that weaves together the feel of traditional acoustic bluegrass music with a cutting edge Mash influence. The latest addition to their lineup includes Christopher Herbst (Thunder & Rain) on Dobro.
"Our goal is to simply write songs that sound good and feel good to play. Each one of the musicians in this group certainly rises to the occasion."
