Amy Rigby

Amy Rigby's first solo album in a dozen years, The Old Guys has received ecstatic reviews in the US and UK. NPR’s Fresh Air critic Ken Tucker called it one of the top ten albums of 2018. The Old Guys measures the weight of heroes, home; family, friends and time. Philip Roth and Bob Dylan, CD/cassette players, touring, the wisdom of age and Walter White, groupies, Robert Altman, egg creams, fellow musicians and mentors are paid tribute. Twelve songs written unmistakably by Amy and recorded by Wreckless Eric in Catskill New York, The Old Guys is the sound of a good girl grown up, never giving up.



“One of America’s greatest songwriters” Nashville Scene



“…keenly observant songs about growing up, growing older and keeping the rock and roll flame alive.” Philadelphia Inquirer



“Her smart, thoughtful songwriting has been knocking the wind out of listeners since she first came on the scene as a solo artist with her 1996 debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife.” No Depression

Amy Rigby has made a life out of writing and singing about life. With bands Last Roundup and the Shams in eighties NYC East Village to her solo debut Diary Of A Mod Housewife out of nineties Williamsburg; through a songwriting career in 2000s Nashville and during the past decade with duo partner Wreckless Eric, she’s released records on visionary independent labels Rounder, Matador, Signature Sounds and reborn Stiff Records as well as her and Eric’s own Southern Domestic Recordings. Her songs have been covered by Laura Cantrell, Ronnie Spector and They Might Be Giants’ John Flansburgh.



For the last twenty-three years, Amy has toured the US, Canada, UK and Europe. She lives with Wreckless Eric in upstate New York. When she’s not writing and performing, she pours beer and sells books at The Spotty Dog bookstore in Hudson.

Bill Brovold/Peter Aaron/Mark Ormerod

The Hudson Valley experimental guitar trio of Bill Brovold, Peter Aaron, and Mark Ormerod utilize their instruments to divine and navigate mysterious, uncharted realms, astonishing themselves as much as those who hear them. Brovold has performed with Rhys Chatham, Arthur Russell, and Glenn Branca; and led the New York band Strange Farm (featuring Billy Ficca of Television and Ernie Brooks of the Modern Lovers) and the six-to-thirteen-piece Detroit post rock band Larval. He has released music on John Zorn’s Avant and Tzadik imprints and the Cuneiform, Knitting Factory, Public Eyesore, and RareNoise labels. Aaron is the founder, lead vocalist, and guitarist of the influential New York band the Chrome Cranks. His past projects include Sand in the Face, Sluggo, and Avondale Airforce. He performs with local trio Young Skulls and with Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase in Peter Aaron/Brian Chase Duo. The soundtrack he recorded with drummer Bobby Previte for the indie horror film The Furies Inside Me was recently released on the Public Eyesore/Eh? imprint. Emphasizing taste, range, and imagination over flash, session and touring guitarist Ormerod is a versatile, genre-agnostic player who moves through blues, swing, funk, folk, and avant-garde/experimental styles. He has performed with a number of well-known upstate artists and bands, including Grammy-winning keyboardist Jeremy Baum, Black Horse Riders, and the Love Taps. His own project as a leader, OROD, released a well-received, self-titled album in 2014.
