Higher Hands

THE HANDMADE QUARTERLY is a revolving local concert series presented by DJ Boy/ Annapolis Records. Volume III will take place on Wednesday, July 29th at 7:30pm and will be a celebration of new music releases and will feature Higher Hands, Bumpin Uglies, Pressing Strings and Skribe along with limited edition artwork and merchandise.

From the Kennedy Center in DC to the Bowery Ballroom in NYC, Higher Hands have been on their grind, burning up stages throughout the Mid-Atlantic with the likes of Trombone Shorty, The New Mastersounds, and the late Godfather of Go- Go, Chuck Brown. Hailing from Maryland’s capital city, the band has firmly established their reputation throughout the DMV for a tight live set and an ability to improvise with the best.

The Audissey

The Audissey is Winship Wheatley (former Creative Paradox Music-Artist- in-Residence) and Joel Bays, two Annapolitans that grew up writing music together. Their 2012 kickstarter-funded EP went viral on Reddit.com and they’re about to release their sophomore EP in the Summer of 2013.

Rachel Joy Pletts

Singer-songwriter Rachel Joy Pletts is a vocal powerhouse. Her voice has a smoky blues sound that has been compared to Adele’s, but is truly original. Her music's depth and passion, perfectly complement her knack for storytelling. “Up in Smoke,” which Pletts recorded in Nashville this past March with a music recording grant from Creative Paradox, offers a glimpse of what audiences can anticipate for her second full-length album. Before she landed in Maryland, Pletts spent nearly a decade in New York City, singing, performing, writing and eventually recording her first album, “Steadfast,” in 2007.

Brooklyn based singer/songwriter, Adam Day, is a farm-to-stage Maryland native who brings heartfelt folk-rock songs together with funny and pensive life stories for a captivating, heartbreaking, and lovable performance that will leave you smil
