Sierra Ferrell performs songs from her hotly awaited debut album, Long Time Coming: a mix of country, folk, bluegrass and jazz. A singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a spellbinding voice, she grew up in small-town West Virginia before traversing America with a troupe of musicians, playing everywhere from truck stops to moving freight train boxcars. After years busking on the streets and living in her van, she moved to Nashville and landed a record deal on the strength of her live show. Still bearing traces of her rambling folkster roots and gloriously unbound by genre or era, her music transports listeners to an enchanted world.
Cincinnati-born singer-songwriter Arlo McKinley plays music that’s washed in the blood of street soul, country, punk and gospel. Delivering original songs like ‘Suicidal Bag of Pills’ and ‘She’s Always Around’ from his album, Die Midwestern, he sings poignantly of heartbreak and melancholy while delivering a wistful measure of hope.
