Susan Cattaneo with special guest Kenny White CD Release

Cattaneo knows how to craft a lyric and pen a hook, to marry lyric and melody. On her albums, she says, “I did mainstream country songs I originally wrote for others, and I found myself a mainstream country artist. The single ‘Girls Night Out’ from ‘Heaven to Heartache’ charted. Some people wanted another single like that. And I wondered, ‘Is that really me?’” The answer she came up with: Not quite. The music she’s pursuing now is going down a darker, more brooding path.

Melody Walker & Jacob Groopman

Hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area and the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, respectively, singer-songwriter Melody Walker and picker extraordinaire Jacob Groopman have fused their influences into a style they like to call “Americali.” They define it as Americana with a California twist, but of course, it’s much more. Drawing from diverse genres and provocative songwriting yet staying close to their American folk roots, the duo create literate music that honors tradition, yet sounds completely of the moment.

Hayley Reardon

Recently naming her a 2012 "Bostonian Of The Year", The Boston Globe characterized her as..."a confident, radiant teenage singer/songwriter who is helping to pen the next chapter of the Boston folk scene...while Reardon is rapidly making a name for herself under the stage lights, it could be said that she's having a bigger impact on her peers across the country as a leading spokesperson for bullying prevention.  By pairing her music with a message of collective responsibility, she has become an effective teen-to-teen ambassador, sought after by schools nationwide."
