Chuck E. Costa & Amber Darland
Chuck E. Costa's candid and visceral delivery of literate and well-crafted contemporary folk tunes has steadily raised his profile on the national club, coffeehouse and festival circuits. Chuck never started playing guitar. Instead, he started rummaging through the basement in search of his grandfather's baseball cards. Meddling through stacks of old china and piles of winter coats, he never found them. Something found him instead. Strumming it's scraggly strings; a progression of broken chords, he played with an honesty and innocence that would be preserved in the songs he would later write. Since earning a degree in philosophy in Boulder, Chuck, a native New Yorker, returned to the Northeast and released 3 independent albums and an EP since 2002. He is a modern day troubadour who has been touring the country consistently for several years cutting his teeth as a performer and songwriter. With his dulcet voice and emotive lyrics Chuck has grown into a singer/songwriter with a unique and honest voice. Last year, Chuck released his third independent release Where the Songs Come From.  Chuck teamed up with Mark Thayer of Signature Sounds to create an album of rich arrangements that stay true to the heart of each of Chuck's candid and visceral songs. The opening track was selected to be featured on a compilation released by Hear Music in every Starbucks in North America. The album appeared on the Billboard charts in its first week of release. He has shared the stage with such diverse nationally touring acts as; Rosanne Cash, The Weepies, Pete Seeger, Peter Case, Dar Williams, Josh Ritter and Andrew Bird to name a few. "Sensitive, introspective...inspired." -- The New York Times

Amber Darland is one of the most exciting up-and-coming singer songwriters of the Pacific Northwest.  Darland's


intensely personal music has the passion reminiscent of Patty Griffin, Lucinda Williams and Shawn Colvin and the soulfulness of k.d. lang, the Carpenters and Dar Williams.   She is a master at making the simple, evocative. Amber's music is compelling because it's both political and deeply personal - and by design, purposeful.  In her performances, the listener becomes an integral part of the moment.  Darland's delivery of powerful, honest poetry with pure vocals, strong melodies, infectious rhythms and personal stories keep the audience engaged and experiencing a wave of emotions. It is not uncommon for her listeners to move from tears to laughter or from personal reflection to political action in response to her music. Amber Darland has shared the stage with Ferron, Tret Fure, Catie Curtis, Mary Gauthier, Laura Love, Adrianne, Sweet Talk Radio, Coyote Grace, Angie Evans, Nedra Johnson, Jen Todd, Gene Tagaban, Chris Pureka, Misled, and many others.
