Mia and Jonah
Mia and Jonah
Crafting a hypnotic live show that “stirs audiences with a magical trance” (Eugene Weekly), Mia and Jonah are a mesmerizing indie folk duo that seamlessly produce "songs of singular beauty, played and sung without pretense” (SF Chronicle).

Since they met in the San Francisco Bay Area in the fall of 2003, they have gone on to produce 3 LPs and 1 EP together as well as tour nationwide (Rooms for Adelaide/2008). Their music has been described as, “visionary” (Nascent Mag), and “timeless” (Tunejar).

With accomplished highlights such as opening for pop idols such as Sia, Tracy Chapman and Ben Taylor at the Fillmore, the duo eventually migrated south to Los Angeles whereby they quickly ingratiated themselves into the local scene, sharing a residence with the Burning Man star William Close (Earth Harp Collective creator). Since their arrival, they’ve been religious performers at LA’s annual Truck Stop “Hootenanny!” where they played with Central California icon Brett Dennen and round the fire with up ’n coming legends such as Lukas Nelson.
Hi Lo Ha
Hi Lo Ha
The San Francisco based band Hi Lo Ha started as a studio side project of Ben Reisdorph (of the local San Francisco psych-rock band Os Beaches). Together with musicians from other notable local bands Lonesome Locomotive and Glenn Labs, Hi Lo Ha has spent the past several months recording perfecting their live set. Hi Lo Ha has an indie/alternative rock sound that can be described as a blend of The Band, Pavement, Wilco, and Grandaddy. All the members of Hi Lo Ha are San Francisco locals and the band consists of Ben Reisdorph on lead vocals and guitar, Brian Davis on vocals and guitar, Steven Sparapani on bass, and James Fisher on drums.
