_________
KATH BLOOM:
For fans of the song and how to feel it. Kath Bloom (USA) is some kind of legend. She comes from a special place where country, blues and folk are made beautifully translucent and emotive. She has a special gift  her voice is delicate and tender,  yet retains that raw emotion and hard worn truths that allows each sung word to be felt.

The more you hear of Kath Bloom, the more you notice its not just the arresting voice, but the power of the songwriting. Beautiful is the typical responsethe kind of beauty that comes from truth, musical and the deeply lyrical. There are no good comparisons, but if you like the deep well of Emmylou Harris, the more poignant lyrics of Lou Reed, the joy of Maher Shalal Hash Baz or even Joni Mitchell, you're kinda in the right zone. In reality, shes simply Kath Bloom: horse whisperer, vocalist, mum, songwriter and a beautiful person.

Her albums recorded with Loren Mazzacane Connors in the 70s/80s are rare things, full of songs that float and melt into the ether. Impossibly beautiful and hard to find on LP, but check the reissues from a few years ago . In the 90s Kaths music was famously featured in Richard Linklaters film Before Sunrise. Since then she has been busy writing and recording to great acclaim. Two new albums in the last few years and she and her songs where also honoured on a tribute album featuring Bill Callahan, Scout Niblett and Mark Kozelek.

J.R. Bohannon:
J.R. Bohannon is a 6 and 12 string fingerstyle guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky, now residing in Brooklyn, NY. Rooted in the deep traditions of the American south, Bohannon has been honing his craft behind the scenes of his drone/ambient project, Ancient Ocean. No longer hiding behind pedals and synthesizers, his informative style is based in the tradition of American Primitive guitar but reaches out with nods to influences like Ry Cooder and Steve Cropper. Having opened for Pharoah Sanders, Steve Gunn, Ryley Walker, Martin Courtney, Jim White, and other luminaries in the short existence of the project, the beginning tracks of a long trail ahead have been laid.

"Brooklyns J.R. Bohannon seems to illustrate the shapes and sights of American landscapes by bending some of its usual musical forms. His work for solo acoustic guitar tucks busy tufts of notes into small spaces, then lets them unfurl in beautifully riverine motion." - Grayson Haver Currin, Indy Week

"(Bohannon) is the definition of embodied listening even as a solo performer, leaning into a phrase of melody with savage enthusiasm before suddenly reacting to what he heard, shaking his head, pulling back, and then seamlessly leaning into a totally new musical direction" - Cacophony Magazine
