Formed in 2002, Elliott Brood (the name, a bastardized homage to the fem fatal character in the 1984 Baseball film 'The Natural') united teenage pals Sasso and Laforet over their grown-up love for Neil Young, the Band and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Pitkin was an accidental miracle: he fell into the group after working sound at one of their earliest concerts, offering to record their first EP. Tin Type was a college radio hit and soon this compact trio was making some big noise. Across five subsequent albums, sharing vocals and trading instruments - each of the band-members seems to play everything - Elliott Brood have become one of the premier acts in Canadian roots music.

    Seattle's Lydia Ramsey is a talented singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and has been praised for the almost vintage quality of her voice. Her songs convey both the wildness and free nature of traditional folk music and feature melodic fingerpicked-guitar backing up her beautiful voice. She has recently released her first full length LP entitled, Bandita.  "This album is brilliantly constructed with tons of folk, Americana and southern country influences that meld seamlessly into a storyteller’s musical odyssey."  Aaron Mannari, Lemonade Magazine

    "The haunting vocals and melodies make this album a must own record." Earle Dutton, Equality 365

    The album's first single, "Ghosts", is a wonderfully southern-inspired folk tune that showcases Lydia's natural fingerpicking guitar ability, her banjo playing and her lovely vocal harmonies.  “Ghosts” debuted last month on NPR's First Watch.

    Last month, “Show Me The Stars” and “Shake Me” from Bandita were featured in KEXP's Song of the Day and Music That Matters Podcasts.  Bandita has ranked in the top 5 of their Americana charts for 6 weeks in the row.
