    Eva and the Vagabond Tales

    Folk

    From the alleyways of old town Riverside come the sounds of old world folk-pop that broke free from the early ages of music and skipped through time to find it's way into our modern world. Along the way, stories were turned into songs, forming 'Eva and the Vagabond Tales'.  The Vagabond Tales is a multi instrumental music project that is centered around the songwriting of Eva Mikhailovna. The songs combine western, old folk, and ragtime into a musical melting pot, creating an alluring sound that "transcends time and continents." Since the start of the project in 2011, Mikhailovna released a full length album entitled "Letters From the Moon" in the fall of 2013, and an EP in 2016, titled "La Douleur Exquise". The music project has been interviewed on NPR radio shows, featured numerous times on NPR's variety show American Parlor Songbook, and played on stations across the west coast. Along with her musicians, Mikhailovna appeared on LATV's the Zoo in 2016. In 2017, Eva and the Vagabond Tales were nominated for the best outdoor video for "Desks in the Wild" during NPR's Tiny Desk submissions. Mikhailovna has also teamed up with artists such as Lonesome Wyatt and the Holy Spooks, singing on his 2017 album, "Grim Weepers". The Vagabond Tales' music has often been described as nostalgic and close to the heart, and the songs are known for their melancholy, "feel of old Europe"- David Fleming, NPR.

    Pop

    Kris Gruen writes songs about grown up life infused with a mystic wonder, softening the world’s sharp edges like a glass of exceptionally fine bourbon. Kris grew up steeped in classic records. His Americana influenced new folk is grounded in the tradition of great narrative songwriters like Cat Stevens and Paul Simon and yet Kris’s voice is strikingly current. A New York City native who’s put down roots in Vermont, Kris effortlessly blends sagacious wit and emotional depth. Americana UK writes "There is the sense of theatre that artists such as Sufjan Stevens achieve, and Gruen's music certainly stands alongside such artists comfortably…truly a thing of beauty.” While often garnering comparisons to contemporaries like The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, and Andrew Bird, Exclaim! Canada’s Music Authority aptly notes, “Kris Gruen is no mere imitator. He possesses a sound all his own.”

    Building off the success his critically acclaimed albums Lullaby School and Part Of It All, Kris will release his new album, New Comics From The Wooded World, in the summer of 2013. New Comics From The Wooded World finds Kris Gruen’s voice seasoned, soaring, and at the height of his craft. The spacious, textured production combines the sweeping sounds of classic rock and the intimacy of a Nick Drake midnight session. The album was recorded in San Francisco at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone Studios and at producer Charles Newman's (The Magnetic Fields, AM, Gospel Music) Mother West Soho digs in NYC. It features contributions from drummer Butch Norton (Lucinda Williams, Eels), Anais Mitchell, Sean Hayes, Shiben Bhattacharya, The Bowmans, Nashville's Jason Goforth (Over The Rhine) and more.

    On past tours, Kris Gruen has shared the stage with Sean Lennon, The Avett Brothers, Bishop Allen, Jesse Malin, Nicole Atkins, Anais Mitchell, and The Bowmans. This spring, summer, and fall in support of New Comics From The Wooded World, Gruen will tour the East and West coast in multiple incarnations – with a six piece band that includes violin and trumpet, as duo, and solo acoustic.
