Ralph White (Austin, TX)
“a lonesome spark, exaggerating the implied drone at the heart of the music of Dock Boggs and The Stanley Brothers... playing wooden six-string banjo, violin, accordion and kalimba, his voice has a high, eerie quality... extremely psychedelic" -(David Keenan, The Wire UK)

Junior Mint Prince
They'll collage strings and electronic toys with soft screams terraforming new timbres in a next-century freak-folk post-topia. Raw voices bridge chaotic bursts of electronic processing and analog synthesis, not a reach to transcend the vortex but to vascularize new paths within its churn.

Kanoko Nishi-Smith & Gabby Fluke-Mogul
Exquisitely attuned duo bringing depth to your experience of sound hues, of infinite timbres, of trust, of vulnerability and of desire. Theirs is an ocean that includes the sky.
