Krista Detor is a singer-songwriter and pianist from Indiana whose music has been featured on NPR and with Mike Harding on the BBC.

Detor's solo albums have reached national and international prominence, including #1 on the Euro-Americana Chart, and placement within the top 10 of the U.S. Folk and Independent Music charts. She has performed with such notable artists as Joan Armatrading, The Neville Brothers, Louden Wainwright, Sam Phillips, and Suzanne Vega, among others. Her choral works have been commissioned by the Ashland Women's Choir, the Shrewsbury Community Choir, and the Cincinnati Women's Choir,

Of Songwriter Krista Detor's work, Rolling Stone says, "A Small Miracle...." MusicDish magazine states: "Call [Mudshow] a novel like Richard Wright's "Manchild in the Promised Land" or the musical equivalent of Akira Kurosawa's "Dreams": a collection of short pieces - stories or short films of dreams - that taken together, form a whole, more than the sum of its parts. " The Boston Herald says, simply, "All songwriters shouldbe this good.."

Flat Earth Diary is Detor's first solo album in 4 years, and is being received with rave reviews: "Magnificent - 5 Stars!" - Maverick, "Almost Too Beautiful.. 4.5 Stars!" - Written in Music, Holland, "Flat Out Brilliant!" - New Democrat, Ireland.. the list goes on.

Lead singer and songwriter for The Trouble, Marc Jeffares will give his first solo performance in over 2 years. His 2008 debut album, 'Ghost in my Bones' made waves on Americana charts and received excellent reviews.

Marc Jeffares was born in Humboldt County, Californiaa rural area in the extreme north of the state known as the home of the giant redwood trees and some of the most beautiful and undeveloped coast lines in the western United States. Certainly, this was no ordinary place to grow upa fact that finds no surprise in his music.
Inspired early by artists such as Kris Kristofferson, Tom Waits, and Niel Young, Jeffares found that a great song could express what had previously seemed inexpressible. It was the pursuit of this expression that lead to his songwriting. Using the lyricism and imaginative prowess of his aforementioned heroes as a conduit, Marc began to find his own voice in song. But it was not until he left Humboldt County , moving to Colorado and later East Tennessee that his real songwriting talents flourished. In these equally beautiful, and yet different areas of the country, Jeffares wrote the songs that appear on his first album, "Ghost In My Bones", a sometimes haunting, yet hopeful, collection of songs about homesickness, lost love, and ghostly reminders of a deep and illusive frontier and southern past uniquely American, but more importantly uniquely human.

"Marc Jeffares trades licks with Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Kris Kristofferson & Bob Dylan - passing around a bottle of whiskey in an old freight car, heading off into that dark night... Beautiful stuff."
-Krista Detor

"Marc's voice is unique and his songs are intriguing. He's one of the best up and coming artists I've heard."
- Jason Wilber (of the John Prine Band)

"With a clear but refreshingly unadorned vocal, singer songwriter Marc Jeffares delivers lyrics that paint a clear and vivid scene of life and all it's pains and pleasures. Production wise, the cd sparkles with simplicity. Nothing too fancy, just good music and great melodies all the way around. Worth listening to time and time again, 'Ghost In My Bones' is the kind of record that you put in the player and leave there!"
Karen Reynolds (program director, host, WDVX)
