Americana singer-songwriter, Paige Clem’s arrestingly direct lyrics and velvety, unaffected vocals exude that most elusive of musical qualities — Soul. With a natural gift for connecting with an audience, her roots-infused music is melodic and warm, yet packs a punch with tales of loss and love. In addition to her original music, Paige frequently lends supporting vocals to various Bay Area acts and showcases and sings with the popular Grateful Dead tribute, The Eleven, Bob Dylan/Neil Young tribute, Shakey Zimmerman, the retro/soul tribute, Paige & The Rage. She has shared the stage with members of Dead and Co., Further, Railroad Earth, Leftover Salmon, ALO, Fruition, Anders Osborne, RatDog, Tea Leaf Green, New Monsoon, Moon Alice, Tracorum, Front Country, Midnight North, and Dead Winter Carpenters, and has performed with Melissa Etheridge, moe., Joe Craven, Steve Poltz, Eric McFadden, Scott Pemberton, The Brother's Comatose, Shook Twins, and many more. She has served multiple stints as songwriter-in-residence at The Bazaar Café, hosts the monthly series "Songs About Something" at The Ivy Room in Albany, and has appeared at High Sierra Music Festival, DelFest, Hangtown Halloween Ball, Cuko Rakko Music Festival, and ULUV Music Day.

Reid Genauer is best known as a singer and songwriter. In that capacity he first hit the national stage fronting the band Strangefolk in the mid nineties. Since then he has gone on to cement his reputation as a prolific songsmith and band leader, fronting a second grassroots success story – The Assembly of Dust. Genauer’s success as a songwriter is evidenced by the caliber and cast of musicians who have supported those songs. Beyond his bandmates from Strangefolk and Assembly of Dust. Genauer has his recordings gilded with guest performances from the likes of Bela Fleck, John Scofield, Mike Gordon, David Grisman and Richie Havens

The music Genauer makes with Assembly of Dust and his original group Strangefolk is a Psychedelic infused Folk Rock and has been compared to the likes of Paul Simon, CSNY, and The Band. Strangefolk leans more towards the psychedelic and Assembly of Dust more towards Americana. The commonality of both groups is the backbone of Genauer’s trademark songs, characterized by crafted lyrics, american stories and authentic vocal performances.

Singer-Songwriter Eric Long’s music is fundamentally folk and timelessly steeped in some of America’s earliest musical roots. His songwriting carries a remarkable knack for simplicity, while his finger-style bottleneck slide guitar playing draws strong similarities to Keb Mo, Taj Mahal and Charlie Parr.

In 2019, NPR’s All Songs Considered hailed his voice as carrying a “…timeless timbre that sounds well-traveled, self-reflective and pure.” Following up on his debut Folk & Country Blues record “A Long Way From Home,” released in October of 2018 Eric was brought in as a fan favorite to play 3 coveted slots at the 2019 High Sierra Music Festival.

Originally from York Pennsylvania, and now living in San Francisco, Eric has performed on 3 continents and has opened for the Grammy winning Roots act Fantastic Negrito as was as Doug MacLeod and Guy Davis. Eric has quickly made a name for himself as a rising songwriter in the Northern California Folk scene and is currently working on his 2nd album.
