Folly Fields is an Indie-folk-rock collaborative project started in Philadelphia in 2012 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Ally Leedy. Together they weave synth-pop sounds with folkloric narratives. Listening to Irish-folk music growing up in rural Ohio Leedy started writing and performing at age 15. She now draws on a wide range of influences and inspirations, from Sharon Van Etten and Juana Molina to The National and Sufjan Stevens. Folly Fields released their first album "Limbs and Longings" in 2014. Their most recent EP "Fluid Lungs" (2015) is available on bandcamp, soundcloud, spotify and itunes. Folly Fields's second full-length album released in February 2017 was written and recorded at Gullkistan artist residency in Iceland in collaboration with bass/banjo/guitar player Ilan Jenkins.
Montropo brings a unique, folk pop sound featuring the music and lyrics of Andrés Diaz. Andrés began writing songs in Austin before moving to Denver, where he has further developed his own particular guitar and vocal style. The last few years of writing and recording have culminated in Montropo’s debut album, “Follow Me”, available on BandCamp and iTunes.
Sydney Clapp is a gripping, dynamic songwriter based out of Denver, Colorado. Currently studying Music Business and Vocal Performance at the University of Colorado Denver, she has fully immersed herself into the music industry and is looking forward to wrapping up her undergraduate degree at the end of this year.
Between hours spent working and studying, she has also built up experience in licensing, venue marketing, and booking. She has played on stages at small venues to festivals, lent her voice to various projects, and competed in final stages of events such as Colorado’s Got Talent and a songwriting contest judged by Todd Rundgren.
Sydney’s songwriting is simultaneously devastating and hopeful. Her voice will bring you back to feelings of long mountain drives, tired conversation and shattered hearts, bruised knees and the adventure that came immediately before. Though singing was her first passion, Sydney has since taught herself guitar and banjo. For her, the writing process is driven by rhythmic elements and ideas, and she finds inspiration in everything surrounding her.
Her debut album is set to release in Fall 2017, and Sydney is incredibly excited to move through the recording process with a full band and dedicated engineering duo. Please feel free to reach out with questions and booking inquiries, or just say hello, and keep in touch for more updates
