The Kenn Morr Band

Kenn Morr’s songs have an elemental quality; water, earth, relationships, seasons, time, change, loss - like the great songwriters who inspired him early on: Dylan, Simon, Van Morrison, Graham Nash, and especially Gordon Lightfoot.

Antje Duvekot

No one writes quite like Antje Duvekot , who was influenced lyrically by the very greats -- Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen, who are Mt. Rushmore- like figures to her.

“Antje is the rare artist who can write about the social and the personal in the same breath,’’ says folk icon Ellis Paul. “Her voice has a sound of innocence and naivete which makes razor-sharp insights into the human condition.’’

Rusty Belle

Rusty Belle was founded in 2006 when brother and sister Matt and Kate Lorenz moved into an old school house in Amherst Massachusetts with Zak Trojano and an indeterminate number of other artists.

“They’re a little bit Country, a little bit rock n’ roll, a little bit old-timey and a whole lot o’ weird.” says Seven Days Vermont, “but in a good way. Rusty Belle mashes genres as if they were tasty little sonic potatoes.”

Lorenz, Trojano and Lorenz are true connisseurs of American music.
