Nora O’Connor has been an in-demand backup singer/multi-instrumentalist for decades,
performing around the world with Iron and Wine, The Decemberists, Andrew Bird,
Robbie Fulks, Neko Case, Mavis Staples, and Chicago super group the Flat Five, to
name a few. The constraints wrought by Covid limited her to touring the backyards of
her hometown alone, and reminded her that she can hold her own on guitar and she
can sing the hell out of anything—and she can write a song, too. With time to spare at
home, she began recording a series of new home demos that became her third album,
My Heart released in October 2022 on Pravda Records.

O’Connor isn’t new to working solo. She released Cerulean Blue in 1996 and Til the
Dawn in 2004 before she carved out a livelihood making other people’s songs sound
better. She has no intention of stopping—in fact 2021 found her back out on the road
with Neko Case and The New Pornographers. But her recent solo shows increased her
confidence and stretched her ambition, moving her to experiment with her voice, to play
with new sounds and textures, and to envision a next chapter in her long and dazzling
career; one where she takes her rightful seat at the table of the luminaries she has
supported for all these years.

Anna Vogelzang believes in the power of songs. Since 2004, the Chicago-based multi-instrumentalist has independently released 7 award-winning albums and toured extensively throughout the US, opening for a wide range of acts from Gillian Welch to Sara Bareilles. Atwood Magazine says her songwriting is “beautifully visceral”, exuding  “the kind of storytelling ability passed down through decades of folk tradition - it walks the line between the modern and the nostalgic”. Her voice has been described as “an ethereal, lucid thing” that “nets melodies like it’s catching monarchs”.

    Anna Vogelzang has been making songs since 2000, playing them in public since 2003, and driving them around the country since 2007. Her melody-driven, multi-instrumental folk-pop ballads have been met with warm reviews (9/10, PopMatters) & landed her at festivals, conferences, and on bills with some of her heroes, including Sara Bareilles, Gillian Welch, Mirah, Anais Mitchell, Laura Gibson, Wye Oak, Steve Poltz, Amanda Palmer, & many more. Anna is currently touring in support of the Driftless EP, a home-spun, steadfast collection of gritty new-folk songs, many of which were written in 2014 as part of the song-a-week project RealWomenRealSongs. In 2015, she will return to the studio to work with producer Todd Sickafoose on her fifth LP. Vogelzang plays the banjo, ukuleles, guitar, and kalimba on stage, but has always been a singer who loves words and feelings first and foremost.
