    Tracy Grammer CD Release with Jim Henry


    TRACY GRAMMER rose to acclaim as half of the "postmodern, mythic American folk" duo, Dave Carter & Tracy Grammer. From 1998-2001, the duo released three internationally celebrated, folk chart-topping albums featuring Carter's mytho-poetic Americana songcraft and in 2002, toured with Joan Baez, both as featured artists and Baez's band members. Called “the new voice of modern folk music,” the duo was clearly in its ascendancy when in July 2002, Carter suffered a fatal heart attack while the duo was on tour. He was 49; Grammer, 34.

As he releases his second album, he's already gained a following in more than a dozen countries from Australia to Europe and across North America. It's no surprise. Caplan is simply unforgettable; with his huge beard and unruly mane, he is as visually striking as he is aurally compelling.

    The Novel Ideas w/ Hayley Sabella


    In the fall of 2012, The Novel Ideas were playing around with a song they’d never performed live. The four friends sat in a room in their house in Brighton, Massachusetts, contemplating the song’s mechanics. They sang together, trying out different harmonies and arrangements until, finally, it clicked. Vocalist Daniel Radin recalls, “When we finally got the four-part harmony down, it was this moment where we realized like ‘oh, this isn’t just an element of our music—it’s a feature.” It was an important realization for the The Novel Ideas—a moment when the band began to understand their artistic partnership. Since then, they’ve earned a reputation from music critics and fans for their moving four-part harmonies and rich Americana sound. From rock clubs to living rooms to festival stages, the band strives to convey honesty and intimacy through their music. Featuring the voices of three songwriters, their newly-released self-titled album, produced by Rick Parker (Lord Huron) and mixed by Ryan Freeland (Ray LaMontagne, Bonnie Raitt), showcases the band at its best. Capturing the spirit of their live performance in recorded form wasn’t easy, but the result is a heartfelt representation of who The Novel Ideas are as a band. Track by track, The Novel Idea represents a contribution to the country-folk scene that balances love-and-loss melancholy with thoughtful instrumentation and intricate vocal arrangements. The Novel Ideas are a country-folk quartet of friends hailing from the great state of Massachusetts: Sarah Grella - Vocals Danny Hoshino - Guitar, Pedal Steel, Vocals James Parkington - Bass, Vocals Daniel Radin - Guitar, Vocals The Novel Ideas | Facebook | Instagram Hayley Sabella is a singer-songwriter / local farmer / earnest truth-seeker / independent woman / dork, who originally did her thing in her hometown of Plymouth, Massachusetts and is now doing her thing in other places, too.

    SOUNDS OF THE CITY with AFRiCAN DUNDADA, AKELA MOON, MYLES BULLEN, TOAST, THE DESPERATE MAN'S BLUES EXPLOSION, and the PORTLAND CULTURE EXCHANGE


    Mark Otim is the celestial visionary known as AFRiCAN DUNDADA. His initials are fitting with his Modus Operandi an intention of bringing more smiles to faces in a world that obviously prefers the corners of their mouth to levitate rather than to have them pulled down by the strings of identifying strictly with worldly form. Sadly, we are inundated with negative reminders. The negativity starts inside our head with expectations rooted in folly combined with illustrious illusions that we are too small to matter; simultaneously thinking we are greater than everything else- a conditioned belief implemented from childhood that we are separate.

    Liz Longley


    Listening to Liz Longley is like diving into a vivid dream, moody and somehow both familiar and strange. At first, the dream belongs exclusively to Longley. But as she sings what she’s trying to know––her lovers, her place, herself––her fierce candor shatters any walls that may have separated us, and the dream we’re swimming in becomes more than just Longley’s. It becomes ours.
