“Virginia natives Carbon Leaf weave their signature indie-rock blend of Celtic, Appalachian, folk, and country into a rousing new brand of music best described as ‘ether-electrified porch music’.
The five-man band's steadfast arrangement of guitar, bass, drums, and mandolin is rounded out with more exotic instruments, like the bouzouki, fiddle, accordion and penny whistle, all tied together by lead singer Barry Privett's bold, straightforward baritone.
Long beloved in their hometown of Richmond and known for high-energy live shows, the group entered onto the national scene in 2002 by winning an American Music Award with the Irish-tinged hit “The Boxer,” a narrative about a fighter who's at the top of his game but scraping the bottom of love's barrel.
Pioneering dreams, broken hearts, Love’s renewal - all traverse the American landscape as common themes in Carbon Leaf's music, as is reflected in the dark, bluesy “Another Man's Woman,” and “Miss Hollywood,” a Southern-twanged ballad about the angst of dating an enormous sign.”
Seattle based singer/songwriter Jenn Grinels captivates audiences everywhere with her powerful vocals. In October 2007, Grinels gave up her California apartment and set out on a cross country tour armed with nothing but her guitar, a beautiful voice and a passion for music. What was originally planned as a 6 month tour has ended up lasting more than 5 years. In that period of time, the acclaimed indie artist has released two full-length albums, built a loyal fan base and won numerous awards for her electrifying live performances.
