Wilder Maker
Urban pastorals unfold in the music of Gabriel Birnbaum, the multi-instrumentalist, singer and writer behind the songs of Brooklyn’s Wilder Maker. Wilder Maker’s songs keenly observe landscapes of desire and abandon, filled with colorful characters and street revelations, in a musical setting as boldly diverse as their NYC home base.
Book Club
There’s a wistful, unpretentious elegance to Book Club’s sound. At once urbane and downhome, this is modern pastoral pop music that—in sound and spirit—can trace a straight line back to the simple, unaffected roots of American storysong. It’s where Johnny and June meets Lou Reed & Nico, trading twilight songs born of vacant, mostly forgotten kudzu-covered city lots, the spare, arresting two-part harmonies echoing all the way from the Georgia Piedmont to Tin Pan Alley and back again.

Book Club's songs blend classic influences like Cash, Petty, Dylan, and Reed, with a country, pop, and indie spin. Singer-songwriter Robbie Horlick strums a nylon-stringed acoustic, leading the 7-piece band through his honest tales of love and heartache, with an interpretation as modern as it is hauntingly timeless
Big Brutus
Big Brutus is the musical project of Atlanta-based singer-songwriter and guitarist, Sean Bryant. Ranging from earnest and heartfelt, to abrasive and jarring, Big Brutus writes songs that challenge the listener to dig a little deeper. His first release, Tiny Box, came in March of 2016 and followed the timeline of a relationship from the innocent beginning to the bitter end. The Odd Willow arrived in early 2017 and assumed a contemplative tone, exploring elements of mortality, aging, sickness, love, and loss. Following this release, Sean embarked on a bicycle tour up the East Coast, raising money for the International Rescue Committee and talking with as many folks as he could. He used this hard, but rewarding, trip to try to re-connect with fellow Americans in a very divided time. His revelations on the journey poured out into what has become his newest work, America Circa. The album strays from those familiar themes found on his previous albums - themes of love, loss, death, and the pursuit of fulfillment - and, instead, calls out and dives into the racism, oppression, and political corruption rampant in America today. Big Brutus has written an important, self-aware album about what it means to live and lose in this country, and calls the listener to address centuries of abuse.
