Crafting a unique style that mixes poetic ballads with swinging rockers, Eilen Jewell ranks among the best in the Americana genre today. As the reigning Queen of the Minor Key, Jewell leads a tight quartet who blend influences of surf noir, early blues, rockabilly, and 1960s era rock and roll.
Over the course of a decade, Eilen and her band have toured relentlessly. They have performed for legions of fans from Boston to Boise and Madrid to Melbourne at festivals, theaters, rock clubs and coffeehouses. Eilen’s fans marvel at her warmth, unique wit, and onstage humor alongside her beautiful songs and fiery performances. Jewell’s fifth studio album, Sundown Over Ghost Town was released in May of 2015(Signature Sounds). The album was recorded with Eilen’s longtime road band in her hometown of Boise, and is composed of twelve stunning, original compositions that feature some of her most personal stories yet.
Joe Fletcher is a midwestern born, New England raised singer-songwriter living in East Nashville, TN. He is about to release his third independent record, You've Got the Wrong Man, on Sept 23, 2014. This intimate solo album is a departure from his previous efforts with his band The Wrong Reasons (White Lighter and Bury Your Problems).
Made up of his gritty original songs as well as covers by his peers Brown Bird and Toy Soldiers, it was recorded live over a few months on a mobile recording unit in Rhode Island, Georgia, and Tennessee in the spirit of some of Joe's favorite records by Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Jimmie Rodgers, Bruce Springsteen, among others.
Now a three year veteran of the Newport Folk Festival, Joe has recently opened for Jason Isbell, The Devil Makes Three, Lucero, Robert Ellis, and The Low Anthem. Joe spends most of his time touring in what has truly been a grass roots operation thus far.
