"(His) music has a sincerity and temerity that is unwilling to be confined by genre" 90.9 The Bridge
A mix of bizarre and experimental musings with swooping, hearty melodies, and raw acoustic emotion form the gentle, heartfelt style that defines the music of Calvin Arsenia. Standing at 6 foot 6 inches, Arsenia strikes a commanding presence complimented by his equally powerful vocal capacity. Arsenia released his first full length record, Catastrophe in early 2017.
Andrea von Kampen
"We were completely blown away." -NPR All Songs Considered
With over 4 million Spotify streams and counting, Nebraska-based songwriter Andrea von Kampen has quickly established herself in the recording studio and on the road. Her deft guitar work and intuitive song construction display striking maturity, and her effortless vocal delivery has been praised by Hear Nebraska as "soulful and worn-in."
Andrea has shared the stage with Tall Heights, Esme Patterson, Gregory Alan Isakov, Dead Man Winter, John Moreland, Dead Horses, Gaelyn Lea, and more. She was featured as a finalist in NPR's Tiny Desk Contest, and won Eddie's Attic Open Mic Night in Decatur, GA. Her recent midwest tour included a live session at Audiotree in Chicago. The resulting recording is now available wherever music is sold and streamed, alongside Andrea's studio EPs "Desdemona" and "Another Day."
Of Tree is a folk-pop band from Kansas City made up of Benjamin Parks (guitar/vocals), Laurel Morgan Parks (violin/fiddle/vocals) and John Bersuch (percussion/sub-bass). The music can be as quiet as porch ballads on a lonely summer night or as textured as a multi-pieced orchestra layering on top of soaring bowed guitars. Dynamic and expressive, Of Tree’s music draws from deep emotions of loss and triumph, failure and hope.
