About Flagship Romance: When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece. John Ruskin (1819-1900)
It may be that the famous English art critic Ruskin uttered these words well over a century ago, but they remain relevant today, perfectly describing the life of married couple Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson. As the Truth or Consequences, NM-based Harmonic Alternative Folk duo Flagship Romance they live, work, and annually travel tens of thousands of miles together, deeply in love with each other and the process of bringing their emotionally powerful music to the people. It is an inspiring union of hearts, minds and souls that entrances all who encounter them and their art.
Fluent, intense acoustic guitar playing; lyrics of lifes peaks, troughs, mysteries and wonders; soaring, yearning vocals; tender, though oft-anthemic melodies, and harmonies one could barely separate with a single human hair: this is the Flagship Romance sound. Live, sharing a custom-built dual microphone stand, they deliver their beautiful material with passionate abandon, living each song as if it will be the last they will ever perform. Such commitment to their music and stagecraft has, in just a few short years, seen the aptly-monikered Flagship Romance become huge favourites of the North American house concert circuit. This suits them just fine, as Shawn and Jordyns preferred performance scenario is an intimate venue where the audience is tucked up close enough to them that they can hear them breathe (and, unfailingly, gasp at Shawn and Jordyns chemistry and dynamics). Yet they have also appeared at festivals, clubs and concert halls, sharing stages with international acts including Half Moon Run, Iris DeMent, Mason Jennings and the Goo Goo Dolls.
Flagship Romance are on the road for upwards of eight months a year, and have been pretty much since the release of their 2013 debut EP, The Fudge Sessions. If ever a testament to this extraordinary work ethic were needed, it would be the reaction to the crowdfunding campaigns they've launched to finance their last three full-length albums, thanks to the considerable backing of the duos rapidly burgeoning legion of fans.
On the back of such a successful project, one that emphatically delivered on their promises, a sophomore full-length was hotly anticipated. Lo and behold, another overwhelmingly positive Kickstarter campaign ensured that Flagship Romance could craft 2017s Tales from the Self-Help Section exactly as they wished to, employing a subtly richer sound and new vocal approaches by Jordyn. Produced by Lucio Rubino at The Fish Tank Recordings in St. Augustine, FL, Tales from the Self-Help Section is a personal, largely self-examining and emotional 12-song opus, documenting the little victories, failures and lessons Shawn and Jordyn have experienced during the last couple of years, mostly dealing with the battles of being present, and living with depression and anxiety.
On the evidence of their gorgeous work to date it is clear that the love and skill of which John Ruskin spoke intertwine in perfect harmony in the cases of Shawn Fisher and Jordyn Jackson, and that, indeed, little masterpieces are the results. Yes, Ruskin would have loved Flagship Romance.
Flagship Romance has aligned their musical career with the clean water cause via the organization charity: water. In August 2012, Fisher and Jackson founded and ran the Clean Water Music Fest in Florida for four years, raising funding and awareness for some of the 800 million people on this planet without access to safe, clean drinking water. In 4 years, they raised over $125,000; 100% of that money is currently being used for well building and tap-stand projects in Ethiopia, Rwanda, and the Sahel region of Africa.
About Moody Little Sister: Modern-folk musical duo, Moody Little Sister has met and magnetized their audiences imaginations since their debut album "Wild Places" appeared in 2015. They are produced by folk-rock icon, Pete Droge, and propelled by the drumming of Jay Bellerose (Robert Plant & Allison Krauss, Joe Henry, Elton John).
Though their writing has been described as masterly (Oregon Music News) and earthy and approachable (Bitch), these are not songs charging towards the mainstream on waves of electromagnetic radiation. This is not a band spraying buckshot for new fans. Moody Little Sister has built a loyal community around their music the old-old-old fashioned way: one listening room, house concert, front porch, and campfire at a time. Having called Alaska, Oregon, and New Mexico home over the past 7 years, their music contains an expansive landscape. It is New Folk for the American West that captures in a bottle the dust storms and tsunamis of the heart.
Along with a big fluffy dog named Triton, this is the same ground theyve covered time and time again in their trusty van. It's been a near-constant life on the road between Anchorage and Albuquerque. This shows in their effortless harmonies and the way every moment of a performance feels both confident and vulnerable.
Some bands make big gestures. Moody Little Sister, in their music and in the kinship they share with their listeners, has been meeting our 21-Century Emergency with an urgent intimacy. By being able to craft their set for both small stages, Moody Little Sister has headlined the living rooms and back yards of fans across the land that host them for House Concerts. They have also appeared at numerous large venues in the Pacific Northwest such as: The Sisters Folk Festival, The Wildwood Festival, The Britt Festival, The Bite of Seattle, and opening for the Indigo Girls to name a few.
