Dietrich Strauss & Rachel Ries w/ very special guest Zachariah Hickman
"Strause's voice is mellifluous; his sound has traces of a young Paul Simon mixed with that Josh Ritter Midwestern wanderlust."  Rich Kassirer, Modern Acoustic

Dietrich Strause owns one of the finer collections of songs on the Boston music scene. Strause's creations come at you first with their simple charm, a lot of which resides in his gentle persona and friendly attitude. It's hard not to like this kid. And this kid is as mature and tested as any of his local songwriting elders.

Daughter of Mennonite missionaries, Ms. Rachel Ries hails from the inspiring, vast expanses of South Dakota, by way of Zaire.  Her formative years were filled with Congolese spirituals, Mennonite hymns and her mom singing her to sleep with The Carpenters. In her life these days, the choirs have turned into bands, the churches into clubs but her mom can still sing like Karen Carpenter. Classically trained in voice, piano, violin and viola, Rachel marries sophisticated, at times vintage, musicality to smart lyrics. With a self-taught guitar style reminiscent of Mississippi John Hurt and vocals that at times recall Billie Holiday and early Maria Muldaur, her songs range from the romantic simplicity of jazz standards to the distilled intensity of poet Anne Sexton. Ms. Ries has an adventurous ear for melody and a voice flexible enough to accomplish it.
