Breaking from his role of rock guitarist/singer in 2008, Rich DeWilde took up piano and began writing achingly beautiful songs focusing on universal themes of longing, peace, beauty, and unity. He has performed piano only solo in order to maintain the intimacy and quietude it provides. Utilizing a harmonica on some tracks, his music has been described as "incredibly romantic", "vulnerable and naked", and "like a lifeline thrown to the listener". Songs like "Forever", "Can't Recall", and "People Need Love" emote simplicity, honesty, and a haunting beauty that melt the heart.
James Houlahan is a singer, songwriter, and guitar player from Boston, Massachusetts, currently based in Los Angeles, California. His music is an authentic mix of acoustic roots, rock, alternative folk, and strange flights of sonic alchemy. Influenced by writers such as Dylan, Waits, Young, and Cohen, Houlahan's original songs combine traditional forms and simple melodies with evocative language and stark imagery. A founding member of Boston-area bands such as Dogs on Television and The Jody Grind, Houlahan has come to be known as a songsmith who channels both tradition and poetic innovation. His 2012 solo release “misfit hymns,” contains songs that sonically reside somewhere between folk and rock, thriving on the music of the past while keeping one ear on the future.
