The Appleseed Collective

The Appleseed Collective

Formed in 2010, The Appleseed Collective has become a force of nature powered by their local community and developed by a strong sense of do-it-yourself drive. In an age of corporations and climate change, the band’s commitment to buying & selling local, eating from gardens, and being their own bosses has led to the kind of success that feels simply organic. Each part of the Collective comes together to form an amalgam of complementary and contrasting elements. With a Motown session musician for a father, guitarist Andrew Brown was exposed to pre-World War II jazz on a trip to New Orleans. Shortly afterwards a chance meeting introduced him to Brandon Smith, violinist, mandolinist and improvisatory magician who grew up playing old time fiddle music. Vince Russo, multi-percussionist and van-packing savant, blends influences of funk, jazz and rock n’ roll on the washboard. Eric Dawe comes from a background of choral singing and studies in Indian classical music and provides the bottom end on the upright bass. The whole band sings in harmony. The Appleseed Collective is not a bluegrass band. It’s not The Hot Club of Paris. It’s not a ragtime cover band. The Appleseed Collective represents Americana music rooted in traditions from all over the world and from every decade, creating a live experience that welcomes every soul and is impossible to replicate.

Lauren Carder and The Multiple Me

Greetings! I am Lauren Carder and the Multiple Me, and I will share some about my-selves now with yourselves! I tend to write acoustic music that fits into many different genres, dealing mainly with self exploration, personal demons (equipped with police sirens), and other intimate revelations. Multiple Me comes from the concept of multiplicity within oneself, that we are not one whole being, but actually consist many fragments. (Its one of the reasons we are so crazy me thinks!) I try to present darker concepts in a fun and playful way. And love to play and sing anywhere, and anytime! (Even in my sleep!) So sit back, and enjoy the ride!
