Josiah Johnson (of The Head and The Heart)
Josiah Johnson (of The Head and The Heart)
Southern California native, current resident of the Bay Area, former Seattleite, one-time Torontonian, and long-time tour busy resident. Josiah Johnson's immersion in the musical culture of so many locales, as well as his dedication to constant touring, have given him the means to share his music far and wide. But the strength of his songwriting has carried his music far beyond his physical reach. Best known as a member of American indie-folkers The Head and The Heart, Josiah's solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity and beauty.
Stella Ruze (EP Release)
Stella Ruze (EP Release)
Throughout modern American music history, a common theme among our most iconic artists is the ability to seamlessly blend divergent musical styles into a sound that is as unique as it is familiar. Philadelphia-based Stella Ruze is poised to become one of these transcendent musical voices, capturing a new signature sound that is steeped in the American musical traditions of folk, jazz and pop.
Planes on Paper
Planes on Paper
There is a vocal synergy that exists between Navid Eliot and Jen Borst, the two core members of the Washington-based folk group Planes on Paper. They each have clear, unique voices, but when combined, a special kind of musical beauty emerges. As a one year-old project, they were already receiving high praise from a nearly endless list of media outlets across the country: The Seattle Times, American Songwriter Magazine, KEXP Seattle, WNYU New York, The Revue, Ear To The Ground, and The Stranger, to name just a few.

Now 2.5 years into the band, the praise continues, and the songwriting duo is drawing crowds on both coasts of the US as well as playing noteworthy festivals...all without yet releasing a full-length album - that unconventional path speaks volumes about the strength of Planes on Paper's live performances. Described as, "a cohesive, stark showcase of pure, unadulterated song craft," they are a show not to be missed. Their debut full length album, Edge Markings, will be released in early 2018.
