*The Bands*
BILLY WYLDER
"A spiritual cousin to Paul Simon's Graceland" -Seven Days

From the front-lines at Standing Rock to the archaic streets of Jerusalem, the Sahel Desert to Carnegie Hall, music has been the source of strength for Billy Wylder. The band features Avi Salloway (Bombino/Hey Mama/Avi & Celia) joined by an inspired cast of singular artists who have performed across five continents including concerts at the Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Montreal Jazz Fest, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center. From 2013-16, Salloway toured the globe with Bombino, the Tuareg guitar hero from Niger, Africa. While on the journey and since returning, Salloway wrote the material on the bands new album, Strike the Match (Sand & Gold Records, released 9.7.18).

Salloway has been bringing these songs to life with the Wylder Family, a group of dear friends and musical kindred spirits. In between shows, the band spent ten days recording at Eyeland Studio in the Columbus Theatre, home of The Low Anthem. The music weaves together American folk and rock with sensibilities from the Sahara Desert: think Andrew Bird meets Ali Farka Toure, Pete Seeger and Talking Heads. Strike the Match expands on American musical traditions, building a bridge to their African roots and coloring the songs with experimental art-rock textures: gilded string lines, synthesizers, and angular guitars. Mother Earth is at its center, surrounded by stories of love, conflict, change and dreams.

The band has toured extensively, performing and collaborating with renowned artists including Jack Johnson, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Bombino, The Low Anthem, and Pete Seeger.

ZILI MISIK

Zili Misik has been bridging cultures, generations, and continents for 19 years. The all female band perform an acoustic & electronic fusion of roots music of the African diaspora. With captivating sounds that evoke the African continent, Zili retraces routes of forced exile and cultural resistance through diasporic rhythm and song. Powerful Haitian, Brazilian and West African rhythms infuse Zili's original creations and traditional folk songs. Reconnecting Haitian mizik rasin, Jamaican roots reggae, Afro-Brazilian samba, Afro-Cuban son, and African American spirituals, blues, jazz, and neo soul, Zili Misik honors its influences while creating a sound that is uniquely its own: New World Soul.

Zili has shared the stage with Ms. Lauryn Hill, India.Arie, Shaggy, Boukman Eksperyans, Les Nubians, Zap Mama, and has toured with Queen Omega (T&T), State Radio, Tony Brown (US), Queen Ifrica (Jamaica) and Emeline Michel (Haiti).

"From its visual aesthetic to its pan-global palette to its rallying cry for social justice, the band offers a feast for the senses." -The Boston Globe

STRANGLED DARLINGS

Strangled Darlings splits it's time between Bethel, VT and Portland, OR and they try and tell everyone their "bi-costal". They tour much of the United States full time playing ~ 150 shows/year. They bring a vivid intensity and a literary gravitas to their live show. They released a new album out June 2019. Jess Anderly finger picks the tenor bass, plays drums with her feet and sings back up harmonies. She frees George Veech to squeeze the notes until it's blue. His rich lyrics pull listeners into an anime of the American pageant. Their song material fits the "Americana" genre with inspiration coming from: road trip music, current events and TV shows. They mix good, original songwriting, technical mastery with deadpan humor and a little something to shake your rumpus. It's all about the live show these days.

"Strangled Darlings have created a brand of swampy, darkly grooving, foot stomping music." -Anchorage Press
