Out from the quiet orchards of Romeo, Michigan, Libby DeCamp has spent an adolescence in close companionship with bodies of music and literature, among hinterlands of horses and history. Driven by a will to connect on a raw, human level, Libby DeCamp makes dusty folk and American Roots-inspired music with a fine-tuned lyrical edge, delivered with a haunting vocal closeness that reaches listeners of all kinds. Moved in the classic three-piece fashion and dabbling in an array of genres, the soundscape is captivating; innocently dark and best described as “Broken Folk.”
Within the first year of establishment, she has rigorously performed both within her home state and nationally, and recorded a six-song EP titled “Cross Sections,” released in March, 2016. Grammy award-winning producer Oz Fritz notes; "The warm sound and seductive grooves of Cross Sections makes you want to listen, it draws the attention in..." Her works have scored multiple placements MTV hit shows, and continue to peak interest with spacial, provocative recordings. Becoming rooted in the Detroit, MI scene, Libby travels on, in preparation of her full-length debut album. "Cross Sections" is now available on all major music platforms.
Rooted in the fertile tradition of Old-Time fiddle music, The Brothers Blue grow a sound all their own – offering a hybrid which unites fresh, original song-writing with elements from Country, Bluegrass, Cajun, and Irish musics. They weave three part harmonies through a rich tapestry of fiddle, banjo, and guitar. Their tight, groove-oriented arrangements prompted one fan to describe them as a “one-mind band” and another as “a dancer's dream.” Furthermore, each of their abilities to play multiple instruments makes their performances especially entertaining. As comfortable around a campfire as they are in a concert hall, the band is excited about any opportunity to share honest, heartfelt musical experiences with their ever-growing family of friends: "The Brethren Blue."
