Over his fifteen year career, Andrew McKnight has enjoyed many accolades within the folk music world. His five solo CDs have earned much critical acclaim and airplay around the world as well as a wealth of NPR stations and several XM/Sirius satellite shows.

Andrew’s solo performances are like one man theatre; the songs are woven together with humorous stories and poetic drama, and the musical soundscape traverses influences from Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune.

Heather Maloney

“I always said that if I didn’t write songs, I’d be covered in tattoos, because every song I write is something I want to remember really badly,” says Heather Maloney.

Although Maloney’s influences are largely rooted in what she calls “adventurous folk,” she pushes outward with her songs, digging deeper, and roaming wider, than she has before on songs populated by vivid characters that ultimately trace their way back to her. She uses juicy touches of pop with a little dash of rock ‘n’ roll.
