People try to box others in. Genres and artist comparisons are how the public tries to make sense of a musician. You can’t really do that with Matt Bednarsky.

Born to a mother with a classical pedigree and a professional jazz guitarist father, Matt grew up in Shelton, CT engulfed in music. He began violin at the age of 4 (soon after left behind), guitar at age 8, and started singing probably not long after he could make farm animal noises. He first put pen to paper in songwriting at the age of 12, finding it as a way to creatively engage.

Matt attended New York University and studied Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, psychology and music. After studying abroad in It...

Kelley McRae grew up in Mississippi but called Brooklyn home before teaming up with guitarist Matt Castelein in 2011, when the duo traded in their NYC apartment for a VW camper van and hit the road. Thousands of miles and hundreds of shows later, they've toured coast to coast in the US, played to packed rooms across Europe, sold-out the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, have taken the stage at major festivals like the Kerrville Folk Festival in TX, and were named CIYH Artists of the Year in 2014.

Kelley's latest release, "The Wayside", hit #4 on the Roots Music Report Top Contemporary Folk radio chart, and debuted at #7 on the EuroAmericana radio chart. The record continues to impress: “With hundred...

Genna & Jesse are defined by a unique alchemy born of the quirky chemistry, intricate vocal harmony and ardent storytelling which infuse their songwriting and vibrant performances. With whispers (and sometimes roars) of folk, blue-eyed soul, jazz, blues, torch song, and ‘60s and ‘70s pop music, their self-chosen genre “Retro Soul Pop” doesn’t entirely encompass their joyful live shows and sensual, deliberate albums. They shrug off music industry conventions in favor of what feels good, and this genre-defying dedication to being current and free has an exciting and irresistible effect. Drawing inspiration from their nomadic lifestyle, Genna & Jesse are best described as modern troubadours, generously o...

Kray Van Kirk is an Alaskan singer-songwriter, delivering performances that the Borderline Folk Club in New York called "...what every singer-songwriter should aspire to." At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where many shows receive only a handful of audience members due to the sheer volume of available performances, his room was sold out, leaving some folks sitting on the stairs and a Fringe reviewer to write "the Alaskan singer-songwriter, in his Edinburgh debut, was not the reason I arrived early, but certainly why I stayed late".

Kray walked away from his first stint in graduate school in Berkeley to tour and live in his Ford Econoline van, playing shows in the days before cell phones (...

For the past two and a half years, Craig Cardiff has been passing around a Book of Truths during his shows and asking his fans to share something truthful in it — a story, a confession, a hope, a secret. The book gives fans a chance to write down something they might be too afraid to say out loud, and it gives Cardiff an opportunity to connect with the people who come to his shows.

Those entries aren’t always easy to read. The stories can be heartbreaking, and they can leave Cardiff wanting to do something, to find the person who wrote in his book and tell them to hold on for tomorrow, that things will be OK.

Cardiff’s new album, Love Is Louder (Than All This Noise) Part 1 & 2, has turned int...

Dan O'Sullivan's nearly two decade long career as a guitarist-for-hire took him to performing with musical acts as diverse as South Korea's most famous female pop singer Pati Kim, 50's R+B vocal legends the Coasters, Blues singer Barbara Morrison, Adult Contemporary star Michael Bolton, and to sharing the bill with Reggae acts such as Maxi Priest, Eek-A-Mouse, and Big Mountain. Over time, his interest in the sideman role began to wither, as his desire to cut his own musical path grew. The stark realization that his previous career was over came when he received a phone call from the musical director of the Beach Boys. After a twenty minute conversation in which he was invited to be one of three singin...

At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotise the listener, demand complete surrender and then stick around with the backbone of a real friend. ​ Born in New Zealand but then transplanted to Australia and now the United States with a guitar, suitcase and songs, Jackie travels light but packs a heavy punch. ​ Jackie has had the honor to be the opening act for many of her musical heros. July 2016 Jackie opened for the Steve Miller Band in the US. Opening for Bonnie Raitt in New Zealand on her 2013 "Slipstream" tour was a dream-come-true. Jackie also did a lengthy tour opening for internationally-acclaimed guitar lege...
