Michaela Anne
A staple of the New Nashville scene of progressive indie-country artists, Michaela Anne is a writer with narrative depth and a timeless voice, who can honky-tonk with the best of them. Rolling Stone recently featured her in AmericanaFest 2016: 20 Best Things We Saw.

Since relocating to Nashville (after several years living and performing in Brooklyn), Michaela Anne has achieved new creative heights on her latest release, Bright Lights and the Fame. The album’s catchy, complex songwriting and twangy poise yielded widespread critical praise from The New York Times, Noisey, Rolling Stone, and Stereogum, to name a few. The album features guest cameos from Rodney Crowell, Cory Chisel, and Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers).

“Michaela Anne is the Answer to Bro Country: “Enter Michaela Anne, who has come out of nowhere as our saving grace, our angel, the person who will help usher us into a new age with her latest album Bright Lights and Fame”. -Noisey (VICE)

“A collection of honky-tonkers and poignant ballads, the record evokes the country-rock sound of the Eagles and the emotional vocals of Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris.” -Rolling Stone Country

” ‘Luisa’ is an energetic highway rambler about hitchhiking to Sacramento. Bolstered by aggressive honky-tonk guitar, rich pedal steel, and a casually commanding lead vocal, it bodes well for Michaela’s upcoming Bright Lights And The Fame.” -Stereogum

“A ravishing female reincarnation of Hank Williams” -Saving Country Music
Calamity Janes
THE CALAMITY JANES inspire foot- tapping from the Greenpoint shores of the East River to the muddy waters of the Gowanus Canal, and from the Manhattan skyscraper pastures of plenty to the fallow plains of Wild Wild West Williamsburg. Featuring Kari Groff (fiddle), Stephanie Coleman (banjo), Betsy Plum (Banjo ukulele, fiddle, vocals), Mimi LaValley (guitar & vocals), and Jared Engel (bass) this string band of four ladies and one sir, as any worthy sweetheart, will get your blood pumping and steal your heart with good old fashioned mountain Old Time music that’s great for dancing, mischief-making, and just plain feeling fine. And, if that isn’t convincing enough – our friends at The New Yorker comment that The Calamity Janes are “in their late twenties.” Don’t miss out!
