GARRETT PIERCE (Sonoma, CA)
https://garrettpierce.bandcamp.com/

“The artist’s ability to connect with his audience – to introduce us to feelings we didn’t know we could feel – is truly superb, an indicator of Garrett Pierce’s talent as a writer.” – Atwood Magazine

“Championing storytelling with a clean, methodical acoustic presentation, the intentionality in each inflection carries the weight of the sadness and reflection. 4/5.” – Impose

“Ranging from raving pop to solemn folk, from Shins-like exuberance to
Mark Kozelek’s charismatic sadness” – East Bay Express

MELAENA CADIZ (Los Angeles, CA)
https://melaenacadiz.bandcamp.com/

"Like an earthbound Joanna Newsom, Cadiz has a voice that grabs you within seconds." -- NPR

"Her Karen Dalton-meets-Joanna Newsom voice has an enchanted echo you wish would never end." -- The FADER:

"Her yearning for simplicity is mirrored in a minimal but powerful arrangement, just one example of why this album will be the perfect soundtrack for wanderlusting." -- Stereogum

"A meandering mix of country and folk that evokes the most isolated areas of the country and the people who call those places home.” - VOGUE

”Melaena Cadiz chronicles the plights of the searchers, of the reachers, and of all those helplessly apart people operating deep below heaven. The landscapes she drafts up in these gorgeous songs are about winning and losing, usually a little of both, which feels natural.” -- Daytrotter
