The Farewell Drifters
The Farewell Drifters
Rising out of Nashville's thriving independent music scene, the Farewell Drifters are an alt-folk band known for their 60's era-inspired harmonies and adventurous musical energy. They have crafted a seamless blend of intellectual psychedelic pop with melodic songs that openly explore the brightest and darkest corners of life with raw intensity. The Farewell Drifters' latest album, Echo Boom, has been met with critical praise and finds them growing from young men into thinking men and establishing their considerable place in this world.
The Shants
The Shants
The Shants’ slow-burning sound originates from the rural backgrounds of its members: from South Louisiana delta pines, to the brusk plains of Minnesota to the rolling hills of the Central California Coast. The Shants now call Oakland, California home.

Beautiful was the Night, the band’s debut full length album, is a haunted love letter to singer Skip Allums’ home state of Louisiana. The album was recorded in Oakland at Rec Center and Tones On Tail Studios by Eliot Curtis, with some vocal harmonies from Brianna Lea Pruett & Quinn Deveaux, violin by Howie Cockrill, and horns by Ralph Carney (Tom Waits, Black Keys) as well as the Blue Bone Express. Beautiful was the Night will be available September 2011. The album was funded by The Shants’ fans, via Kickstarter.

The Shants continue to play up and down the West Coast, spreading their low, lonesome sound. The Shants have opened for artists like Basia Bulat, Adam Acuragi, Damien Jurado, Eilen Jewell, Jonathan Richman, Songs Ohia, Barbara Manning, and many more.
Warbler
Warbler
When you hear the name Warbler, think of a folk-programmed bionic song-bird perched with joyful simplicity on the fresh rubble of a musical Apocalypse. Warbler’s self-titled album, the second effort of singer/songwriter Sean Sullivan, is an enjoyably off-putting cocktail of pure organic spirit set on electric fire.
