PROCEEDS TO SANDY RELIEF!
brooklyn-based, wilderlands weave intricate, male/female harmonies atop an etherial blend of guitars and pedal steel. Fronted by Jeff Malinowski and Amal Bouhabib, wilderlands serves as a more minimalistic, folk counterpoint to the duo's other project basement band.
Small Houses is a Michigan based indie/folk project featuring the songs and poems of Flint native Jeremy Quentin. Artfullycrafted finger-style guitar playing, and softly sung melodies describing the people, love, and homes of Quentin’s life.
“Jeremy Quentin, the vocalist behind Lansing’s Small Houses, sings with an earnestness that’s hard to deny… Quentin’s music is based on delicate folk melodies and his plucked six-string, with sparse acoustic arrangements that are quietly beautiful.” – A.V. Club
Michaela Anne (pictured)
Growing up in a military family, Michaela Anne lived as a modern day gypsy - traveling the American terrain as well as abroad. Always active musically, she picked up influences as diverse as the places she lived. Now planted firmly in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, a neighborhood with an imagined taste of country life within the metropolis of New York City, she has found a home, and band. Her songs weave stories of the hardships and pleasures in life, notably influenced by the American military family lifestyle. Blending country, blues and folk with heartfelt lyrics and a powerful vocal delivery, Michaela Anne evokes the ever-changing landscape of American life she witnessed firsthand.
Heart and soul strong songs from a startling performer who powers Snake Dudes, Knockin' Boots, Used to be Women, The Droves, The Dangles, and more.
