Spirit Family Reunion play homegrown American music to stomp, clap, shake and holler with. Ever since they started singing together on the street corners, farmer's markets and subway stations of New York City, their songs have rung-out in a pure and timeless way. When Spirit Family Reunion gather to sing, there is communion. Strangers and neighbors come to rejoice in the sound, and there is no divide between performer and spectator.
"Dusty acoustic guitars, wailing fiddles and weeping accordions, with a woozy-yet-skintight rhythm section-- and topped off with burr-edged vocals that sound like they've been soaked in a Mason jar for generations -- it's the type of music that blurs the line between past and present so thoroughly, and so deftly, that time feels irrelevant."
-Paste Magazine Best of What's Next
PALEFACE is an American musician and artist currently on tour as high-energy indie-folk three piece band, in support of his Ramseur Records follow up One Big Party. Paleface celebrated the release with a special guest-performance alongside The Avett Brothers at NYC's Radio City Music Hall, followed by US and Europe tours. Soon after the album's release, Daytrotter.com featured a brand new live stripped down recording session by Paleface, and one of the tracks was voted "Daytrotter's Best of the Year - Reader's Choice". And later PASTE Magazine premiered "PALEFACE - The Making of 'One Big Party'", a short documentary which follows Paleface during the process of recording, touring and performing, and features interviews with Paleface, his darling drummer Mo, and friend Scott Avett of The Avett Brothers.
Like a porch swing on a warm summer night, Annie and The Beekeepers manage to be simultaneously comfortable and thrilling. Annie Lynch's lilting voice surrounds you and flows over the Americana arrangements like the breeze as her detailed lyrics entice you to lean forward and beg for more.
