*Ed Askew:

Ed Askew is a painter and singer-songwriter who lives in New York City. Born in Stamford, Connecticut, he moved to New Haven to study painting at Yale Art School in 1963.

The singer-songwriter moved to New York for a few months in 1967 where he met Bernard Stolman of ESP Disk' (Pearls Before Swine, Sun Ra, Albert Ayler), who offered him a contract. That year Ed's first album was released, Ask the Unicorn (on Parlophone in the UK) and it quickly disappeared into folk-psych obscurity. He then recorded his second album for ESP, Little Eyes, but it sat in the vaults for  almost 40 years until it saw a limited release in 2007. Around 1987, Ed moved to New York City, where he continues to write and record songs, and now regularly performs. In the summer of 2011, Ed Askew embarked on his first US tour at the age of 71.

Ed is releasing a brand new album 'For The World' in September, was produced by Jerry DeCicca (The Black Swans), and features performances by Marc Ribot, Sharon van Etten, and Mary Lattimore. (adapted from Tin Angel Records site)

*Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler:

An amazing Philadelphia duo. Mary Lattimore, harpist and musician extraordinaire, has played with everyone from Meg Baird to Thurston Moore to Daughn Gibson and many more. Her new solo album will melt you. Jeff Zeigler, member of Arc In Round, and crazy in-demand Philly producer/engineer, synth wizard.

*Laura Baird:

Laura Baird is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and recording engineer. Since 2001 she has performed and recorded as The Baird Sisters with her sister, Meg Baird. She enjoys crossing and blending genres like folk, pop, classical, and electronic, and frequently collaborates with other artists and musicians who work in and between these genres. Recently she worked with guitarist Glenn Jones on recording his latest album.
