"Kathleen Murray - Kathleen Murray has been writing songs for over a decade. Her approach has evolved but remains true to its roots, as a form of process. Inspired by the farmlands and forest surrounding Watsonville, California and overall human experience, her debut album Woodland Voices (2014) presents themes of spiritual unrest and learning how it's not always bold to be alone. Sweeping harmonies and layered strings present a dreamlike backdrop to visual lyricism throughout her work. Now based in Seattle, Kathleen prepares to release and tour her second full length album. This new collection of songs, titled Desert Dream,
evaluates the difference between hard times and change, expressing a wisdom well beyond her 22 years.

Native Sibling - One cool autumn night/ lying in the woods, by the fire; and so begins Letters Kept to Ourselves, the debut full length by Santa Cruzs brother and sister duo: The Native Sibling.  The strong pastoral setting of effective opening song Darkest of Night Skies continues,conjuring a backwoods environment where the fire flickers and the narrator dances beneath the night sky; accompanied by a pair of chords and a guitar decoration which recall Revelator-Era Gillian Welch. In part, such a location sets the tone for rest for of the album, see also Here With Me, and elsewhere The Native Sibling have also made reference to the effect that the loss of their mother had on them. Without wishing to delve too deeply into the imprecise process of attempting to find the artist amidst the art, there would appear to be a trace of this effect amongst the lyrics which move frequently between the familiar but never tired themes of things lost, found, or stolen; of memories and promises made and never broken, as the siblings impart with these letters, one assumes, they otherwise would have kept to themselves.

Bears and Other Carnivores - Bears and Other Carnivores launches into a grizzly attack! This longhibernating team will lull you in with haunting vocal and string
melodies and snatch you before you know it with aggressive guitar and drum rhythms. Seattle foursome Aaron Davidson, Andy Zook, Brian McConkey, and Ellen Kilcup have been playing music together since 2013, and strive for high energy and highly rehearsed performances. B&OCs songs string together conversations around mental health, relationships, frustrations and hope."
