Laura T. Lewis & James Coffis

From Laura T. Lewis: “Raised on the northern fog banks of the San Francisco Bay, there was always a drum kit in our living room and a half-finished clay project in the basement art studio. I was regularly scolded for singing at the dinner table and dancing in the outfield (I wasn't cut out for sports). Every early memory has a soundtrack.”

Jamie Coffis is a founding member of Santa Cruz based rock and roll band The Coffis Brothers. The singer songwriter and keyboard player has been touring the country since 2009 and recorded 4 albums with his band in that time.

Rocks & Salt

Rocks & Salt

Rocks & Salt is an Oakland based roots duo birthed out of whiskey soaked hardships and an unadulterated love for the mysticism that pulses through the American music lexicon. A tumbleweed of sound that can’t help itself from blowing through the cold hard plains of broken hearts, empty bottles and the seamlessly unending abyss of self exploration.

The focal point of R&S, Jared Griffin (guitar, vox) and Nicole Ridgwell (fiddle, vox) have played together in bands before, most recently Sioux City Kid and Grandville. Their separate projects spread out across the country from LA to Nashville to Louisiana. They both recently found themselves back in the Bay Area and have joined forces once again combining their love for old school blues, country, gospel and americana.

Nels Andrews + Rebecca Loebe

“Where has this guy been hiding? In the library maybe.” -NPR'S Folk Alley

Although he was born by the sea, it wasn’t until he moved to the desert that Nels Andrews began writing songs. He sang them alone in a house constructed of mud and tires on the sage-brushed mesas of Taos, New Mexico where he spent his 20’s, airing them occasionally around campfires. Eventually he found his voice as a crooner of literary narratives and increasingly impressionistic story songs.

Matt the Electrician

Matt the Electrician

Despite the name, Matt the Electrician is no longer an electrician, focusing instead on a music career that has spanned the course of two decades, a dozen records, and thousands of shows. His music, however, remains rooted in his blue collar beginnings, with lyricism that embraces the day-to-day, the mundane, the beauty of the ordinary. 

Before moving to Austin, TX and launching his career as a working-class folk musician, Matt Sever grew up on the West Coast. His parents played John Denver and Pete Seeger songs on the family record player, and Matt spent his earliest years surrounded by the things that would later fill his own music: acoustic guitars, timeless melodies, lyrics that celebrated the joys and heartaches of everyday life, and — above all else — a strong work ethic.

The Lowest Pair

Kendl Winter, born in Arkansas, moved to Olympia, Washington after high school, drawn to the evergreen forests and the lively and thriving music scene. She put three solo records out on Olympia’s indie label, K Records, and performed in nationally-touring northwest string bands before beginning The Lowest Pair in 2013 with Palmer T. Lee. Palmer built his first banjo when he was 19 from pieces he serendipitously inherited. Shortly after deciding songwriting would be the most effective and enjoyable medium for his musings, he began cutting his teeth fronting Minneapolis string bands and touring the midwest festival circuit, which is where he and Kendl first met, on the banks of the Mississippi.

Aviva le Fey & Covenhoven

Aviva le Fey sings heart songs – some for love lost, and others for humanity forgotten – with a tone and cadence that somehow conjures both the vintage pop of the Fifties and the dark, dreamy sounds you might hear coming from that haunted backwoods bar in 1990s Twin Peaks, Washington.

National emerging folk/indie artist Joel Van Horne, aka Covenhoven, has dubbed his new critically acclaimed album the ocean record, because he wrote the songs while touring and exploring the west coast. Chapter 3 in the Covenhoven story, “A Kind of Revelation” continues his over-arching theme of immersion in a place, and letting that place become the centerpiece of the music.
