Rachael Kilgour and Matt Nakoa at the me&thee
RACHAEL KILGOUR
Based out of Duluth, MN, singer-songwriter Rachael Kilgour has built a devoted following over the last nine years, captivating audiences with a balance of provocative, topical lyrics, passionate musical delivery, and a charmingly witty stage presence.

Kilgour began writing and performing her own songs in 2005. She was invited to join recording artist Catie Curtis on a tour of the Midwest as an opener and backup musician in 2006 and again the following year. Her original music was received well enough that she decided to break from the pursuit of a Music Education degree in order to focus on a career as a performer.

In 2007 Kilgour married and enthusiastically took on the role of step-parent to her wife's young daughter. She released her long-awaited debut album in December 2008 and a second release, "Will You Marry Me?" in January 2011. Both albums give an earnest glimpse into the life and politics of a young woman turned wife, mother and advocate for a generation of dissatisfied global citizens.  In February 2013, Kilgour released "Whistleblower's Manifesto," a three-song EP that focuses on issues of social injustice and showcases her innate ability to challenge and inspire listeners.  

Kilgour has performed across the country in coffeehouses, concert series and radio studios as well as protests and picket lines. She's shared the stage with such folk luminaries as Greg Brown and Holly Near and earned a local reputation as "everyone's favorite, spirited folkster."  In 2015 Kilgour took fifth place in the Telluride Troubadour Competition and was named the winner of the LEAF Newsong Contest in North Carolina.

Following her 2014 divorce, Kilgour has written a collection of new, powerfully intimate material. She plans to release a full-length, studio album of the work in the spring of 2016. The album is being produced by Catie Curtis.

MATT NAKOA

MATT NAKOA grew up on a small goat farm in Central New York and began composing music as a teenager. Following a formative stint as a concert pianist, he won scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. There Matt worked alongside a who's who of soon-to-be industry darlings, including St. Vincent, Esperanza Spaulding, and members of the bands Karmin and Lucius. After school, Matt wrote and toured with his Berklee-bred band, The Fens. His first solo release, 2012's Light In The Dark, was received by fans as an eclectic pop/rock masterpiece while Matt's latest studio album, A Dozen Other Loves (2014), explores a mainly acoustic palette. This acoustic avenue has led to steady folk radio airplay and performances with veteran songsmiths Patty Larkin, Ellis Paul, and Tom Rush.

An engaging performer, Matt tours internationally, recently giving concerts at The White House and throughout India. Matt is a 2014 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Winner and a Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Most Wanted Artist. Additionally, Matt's piano music has received favorable reviews in publications including The New York Times, and his film scoring has been featured at BAM, and on Disney.com.
