Grain Thief is a 5-piece americana string band from Boston MA. The group is Patrick Mulroy (guitar, vocals), Zach Meyer (mandolin, vocals), Michael Harmon (bass, vocals), Tom Farrell (lead guitar), and Alex Barstow (fiddle). Their debut EP Animal was released in November of 2015, which showcases the band's roots in folk, bluegrass, and old time music.The band’s first full-length record Stardust Lodge was released in August 2018 and has been broadcast at radio stations from coast to coast. Mulroy's lyrical approach to the album is met equally with songs of loss and regret, and the struggles of the everyday working man with a satirical twist. The arrangements and instrumentation represent a departure fromAnimal’s bleak simplicity in search of something more complex, modern, and ,at times, psychedelic. In support of the record the band toured the Southwest, Southeast, and Northeast US bringing their brand of country music to honky-tonks, festivals, and dive bars across the country.
Newcomers Club was founded by John Roach and Geoff Lynn. Raised outside of Boston on old folk music and Dad’s radio, they moved to New York to start a band. They performed as a banjo/acoustic guitar duo for a year and a half, writing songs and working on harmonies. After recording an EP, they started adding to the sound - and slowly the band grew into a powerhouse seven piece with electric guitar, bass, drums, and cello. With a focus on compelling vocal arrangements, they will bring you to tears with heartache harmonies and get you moving with rocking refrains.
Newcomers Club draws from the old greats - Fleetwood Mac, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and Paul Simon to name a few - and blends their influences into a unique, contemporary sound. They released their debut album, "Newcomers Club," in November 2018.
Caroline Kuhn’s earnest songwriting creates a unique union between folk and jazz with soaring melodies that are accompanied by rhythmic fingerpicking on the guitar and tenor banjo. With full band accompaniment, her music aims to create emotional moments that captivate listeners, inviting them into a soundscape that they may interpret as they please.A recent graduate of The New England Conservatory of Music, Caroline spent the last four years completing her degree in contemporary improvisation. After spending time in Boston building upon her extensive experience singing harmony in a variety of styles (from medieval to jazz), she returned to her native New York City. Caroline began her career in NYC at the age of five, recording jingles and doing an assortment of voice-over and choral work. Outside of her solo project, Caroline is an active member of two bands, the country rock group Ruthless Moon and the folk group The Ladles.
Music made for the dishonest mechanic and the sympathetic customer that won't come back... for the ones unfit for this, and those that know they just happen to be... for the disheveled, the clean cut, the driven and the tired... for the ones that know and the ones that don't and for the nameless something that contains us all...
