Carrie Rodriguez, a singer-songwriter from Austin, Texas, finds beauty in the cross-pollination of diverse traditions. A passionate performer, she effortlessly melds fiery fiddle playing, electrifying vocals and a fresh interpretation of new and classic songs with an Ameri-Chicana attitude. Her newest project, the upcoming Spanish/English album Lola, is both a return to her musical roots and something of a departure where she delivers her own twangy, Texas-bred twist on Mexican Ranchera songs, creating culturally blended music for a culturally blended world.

Inspired by the 1940s-era recordings of Carries great aunt, Chicana singing sensation Eva Garza, the album is a mixture of new and old songs. It features Spanish songs written by some of Carries favorite Mexican composers, as well as her own Ranchera-inspired original songs written in English, Spanish and Spanglish.

Produced by Lee Townsend, the album is supported by an all-star band, The Sacred Hearts, assembled especially for this project. The band features internationally acclaimed composer/guitarist Bill Frisell, Viktor Krauss on bass, Luke Jacobs on pedal steel and guitars, David Pulkingham on nylon string guitar and electric guitar and Brannen Temple on drums and percussion. The crowdfunded project, supported entirely by friends and fans, is set to be released on Feb. 19, 2016 by Carries own label, Luz Records.

Carrie, an Austin native, began playing violin at age five. Her training quickly became the passion and focus of her childhood, and by age 10, she had performed as part of a group at Carnegie Hall. She continued the classical track in her first year at Oberlin Conservatory, then shifted gears to pursue her true love affair with the fiddlestaying true to her Texas rootsat the Berklee College of Music.

Early in her career, a collaboration with singer-songwriter Chip Taylor resulted in four highly acclaimed duet albums. Her subsequent solo albums highlight the diversity of her musical identity, from her debut Seven Angels on a Bicycle to 2013s Give Me All You Got, which reached no. 1 on the Americana Music Charts.

Carrie has toured, recorded and co-written songs with legendary artists such as Lucinda Williams, John Prine, Bill Frisell, Rickie Lee Jones, Mary Gauthier, Los Lobos, Alejandro Escovedo and Los Lonely Boys, among others. She has made numerous television and radio appearances, including Austin City Limits, The Tonight Show and A Prairie Home Companion. She has been profiled in many publications, including Rolling Stone, The New York Times, The Times of London, The New Yorker, the Washington Post and many more.

Carrie lives in Austin with her partner and musical collaborator Luke Jacobs, a multi- instrumentalist/singer-songwriter from Minnesota, and their son, Cruz Calvin Jacobs.

_________________________________

The Crane Wives are a homegrown indie-folk-rock band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The evocative, poetic songs of lead-singers / multi-instrumentalists Kate Pillsbury and Emilee Petersmark are brought to life with the help of bassist Ben Zito and percussionist / vocalist Dan Rickabus.

Utilizing three-part harmony, warm acoustic instruments, ethereal electric color, bounding rhythms and a deep love of literature, the eclectic four-piece creates a unique, dynamic sound that is equal parts haunting and uplifting. Their music traverses innovative territory, ranging from whisper-quiet ballads to big, danceable grooves.

After receiving local critical acclaim for their first two self-produced albums, the band released their third, "Coyote Stories" in August 2015, as well as their fourth album "Foxlore" in April 2016. These two new albums are companion pieces, and were recorded simultaneously in one big session at Ian Gorman's La Luna Recording & Sound in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
