Scott Hirsch (Hiss Golden Messenger/ The Court & Spark)
Scott Hirsch (Hiss Golden Messenger/ The Court & Spark)
For nearly 20 years multi-instrumentalist Scott Hirsch has quietly sculpted rich landscapes of expansive Americana in San Francisco’s the Court and Spark. More recently, he’s collaborated with that band’s old front man, MC Taylor, on Taylor’s solo project, Hiss Golden Messenger. But a couple of years ago Hirsch finally stepped out on his own, and in 2016 he produced an album of kaleidoscopic range and beauty that encompasses his varied interests. Blue Rider Songs summons a rustic vibe, funneling roots music through s prism of intimate detail and hushed projection.
Kate Gaffney
Kate Gaffney
Singer-songwriter/guitarist Kate Gaffney honed her skills in her native Philadelphia, jumped from coast to coast and toured everywhere in between. After laying musical roots in Northern California, building a strong base in Sacramento, she found her niche within the fertile San Francisco Bay Area music community. With Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, High Sierra Music Festival, Philadelphia Folk Festival, and Hangtown Music Festival performances under her belt, she is thrilled to be playing with some of the bay area’s best local, touring musicians. Gaffney has released three albums, the most notable being "The Coachman" which features contributions from Steve Kimock, Greg Liesz and Jackie Greene.
Lauren Barth
Lauren Barth
It's very clear that the likes of Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez are huge influences on Tulsa (by way of LA)-based singer Lauren Barth. Barth has a pension for writing catchy songs that straddle the line between pop, Americana, and folk, bringing to mind artists like Sheryl Crow, Liz Phair, and Lucinda Williams. Her music captures the sparse landscape of Oklahoma with plenty of twang.
