Michaela Anne (full Band) w/ Theresa Peterson and Sally & George
A staple of the New Nashville scene of progressive indie-country artists, Michaela Anne is a writer with narrative depth and a timeless voice, who can honky-tonk with the best of them. Since relocating to Nashville (after several years living and performing in Brooklyn), Michaela Anne has achieved new creative heights on her latest release, Bright Lights and the Fame. The album's catchy, complex songwriting and twangy poise yielded widespread critical praise from NPR, The New York Times, Noisey, Rolling Stone, and Stereogum, and others. The album features guest cameos from Rodney Crowell, Cory Chisel, and Noam Pikelny (Punch Brothers).
Sally & George
n the town where country music was born (Bristol, TN), where two states come together on one street (State Street), a spark lit and a duo was ignited. Shelby and Joel met at the crossroads of country and rock and roll. The Nashville based duo, Sally and George, consists of Joel Timmons on guitar, percussion and vocals and GRAMMY nominated Shelby Means playing upright bass and singing. Drawing from their love for the classic duet styles of Johnny Cash and June Carter, as well as contemporary artists, The White Stripes and Shovels & Rope, Sally and George breathe life and love into the ever widening world of Americana. Merging Joel’s freeform live performances (Sol Driven Train) and Shelby’s energetic structure and bluegrass pedigree (formerly of Della Mae), the pair bring new material with stripped down instrumentation, emphasizing song craft and hypnotic vocals, to stages across the country. Their debut album will be released in the fall of 2016.
With photographic lyrics, unique chords, and smooth tones that float between octaves and stretch the line between old and new, Peterson's songs dig deep into the bottomless wells of love, life, and death. She is also founder, host, and curator of local songwriter showcase Boulder In-the-Round. Peterson is currently recording her first full-length studio album set to release Spring 2018
