VANDAVEER is the song-singing, record-making, globetrotting project penned and put forth by folk-pop tunesmith Mark Charles Heidinger. Borned in cloudy Ohio, raised in Kentucky, and currently camped out in the nation's capital, Vandaveer offers up melodic Americana that is both haunting and easy, forlorn and welcoming, with stories as universal as the songs they inhabit. Vandaveer shapeshifts from stage to studio and back with a host of revolving characters, most prominent among them Rose Guerin, offering up the loveliest harmonies heard this side of Eden. Death, murder and ghosts have long been underlying threads coursing through Vandaveer's original music, but instead of weaving their own shadowy tales into their latest studio effort, Oh, Willie, Please..., the DC-by-way-of-Kentucky alt-folk collective have tapped into the wellspring of traditional folk's darker side.
AISHA BURNS (http://aishaburns.com/)
Aisha Burns is a violinist + singer-songwriter living in Austin, Texas. She joined Balmorhea on violin in 2007 and has been touring, recording and performing with both bands ever since. After years of secret singing, she began tracking a project of her own. Inspired by Gillian Welch, Nina Simone, the warmth of a string quartet, the quiet of night, loss, and simplicity, her debut record "Life in the Midwater" was born. Exploring mortality and relationships with candor and wisdom, "Life in the Midwater" is sometimes tense, sometimes soothing, as it moves from minimal to sweeping arrangements as remarkable for their diversity as their cohesion.
