Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber was a founding member of the .357 String Band--a group that, despite its abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement. Having moved from .357, Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band. Whether it's irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching "songwriter" songs, Huber spans the spectrum of 'Roots' music while preferring not to stay within the boundaries of any strict genre classification.
His lyricism and introspective writing style has received high acclaim from many Americana enthusiasts looking for a more substantive substitute to much of today's modern country. Maintaining a solid touring schedule, playing all throughout both the U.S. and all around Europe, Huber continues to gain positive press, including being listed on L.A. Weekly's '10 More Country Artists To Listen To (2014).' Blue Ridge Outdoor writes, “Songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Chris Smither, and John Prine can marvel listeners in the simplest of acoustic settings,...From time to time, I stumble upon a new singer/songwriter whose work warrants comparison to the luminaries on this list. ...Huber’s songwriting has me comparing him to my favorites above.”
Huber's 4th solo release, 'The Suffering Stage' is a shift both in writing style and in it's filled-out production style, which looks beyond his usual minimalist folk recordings. It features many of Milwaukee's best players, such as Ryan Knudson on pedal steel; Dustin Dobernig on keys; Andrew Koenig on electric guitar; as well as his long-time touring band members--Jason Loveall on fiddle; and Eston Bennett on bass. It follows his early self-released material--'Bury Me Where I Fall' (2010) and 'Tongues Of Fire' (2012)--and his 3rd album, 'The Hanging Road,' which was released under Nashville's 'Muddy Roots Recordings' label in Spring 2014.
Jennifer Jane Niceley (Full Band)
Tennessee songwriter Jennifer Jane Niceley pens jazz-hued folk with deep roots in southern soul and western twang --sometimes like a campfire ballad sung as sweet and slow as a torch song, always with a singular voice that can transcend time and place. Her lyrics bare longing and regret, poetic dreamscapes of twisted trees, summer storms, the scent of freshly tilled soil...Released late 2017 after relocating to Colorado, her new album, Angels, Demons, Red-Tail Hawks, is a genre-defying collection of fresh, original songs — recorded in Nashville earlier that summer with multi-instrumentalist Eric McConnell (Loretta Lynn, Todd Snider, Sierra Ferrell). The follow up to 2014’s dreamy, bucolic Birdlight, (written while still living and working on her family's Tennessee farm) this new offering finds her looking west and traveling light, drawing still on her chief inspirations: the land and the human heart.
Tasty country tunes from Denver, Colorado.
