Former member of Green on Red, Chuck Prophet returns with his blistering hot band and a new album called 'Night Surfer' to be released in September. 'Night Surfer' was recorded in Prophetís hometown of San Francisco at Decibelle Recording Studio and in Nashville at Alex the Great with noted producer Brad Jones and was mixed in upstate New York by Paul Q Kolderie. Of the album, Prophet says, "This record is loosely conceptual but universal all the same. Itís all about a path forward, about looking around and imagining where weíll be in twenty years if we just follow that path. And of course, youíll find a persistent anxiety throughout; we live, after all, in anxious timesĒ. Watch out for Jonah Tolchin who is supporting - he'll go far too. So, avoid those anxious times and get your ticket now.

The Sadies bring their signature blend of country, psychedelic, rock and surf into rifle-scope focus on their latest album 'Internal Sounds', further underscoring their reputations as musiciansí musicians. They are now more intent than ever on making their mark as songwriters. In one turn as heavy as a sledge, and on the other flitting across melodies with the ease of so many sparrows.

AnaÔs Mitchell is first and foremost a storyteller. Hailing from Vermont, she began by recording for Ani Difranco's Righteous Babe Records before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. Whether you look at her folk opera ('Hadestown' with Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, Ani Difranco, Greg Brown and Ben Knox Miller of Low Anthem) or her album with Jefferson Hamer ('Child Ballads' drawing upon the folk song collector's work), she knows how to tell stories and make them fresh and enthralling for the listener.
