Seán Keane, from County Galway, is decribed as the "greatest musical find of the '90s" by The Independent. Traditional Irish, folk, and even country and blues songs all lend themselves to his unique style and unforgettable voice. 

When he joined his first group, Shegui, he had already served a long apprenticeship. After travelling throughout Europe with the band, he left to join Reel Union, a group that also featured his sister Dolores and accordion player Máirtín O'Connor. Keane embarked on his solo career in 1993. All Heart , No Roses received rave reviews and was chosen as Debut Folk Album of the Year by Q Magazine. In the years following, success continued with Meteor Music Award nominations; Irish Music magazine also named him Best Male Folk Performer three times.

All of his solo albums are platinum sellers and remain in constant demand. Six solo albums later, Keane continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and recorded work. He tours regularly with his band in Ireland, Austria, Germany, the U.S., and Canada, as well as appearing at major festivals worldwide.

Austin, Texas-based duo The Wind and The Wave are Dwight Baker and Patricia Lynn (Baker is “the Wind” and Lynn is “the Wave”). Baker is a touring musician turned songwriter and producer who’s worked with artists such as Bob Schneider and Brandi Carlile. He met Lynn in 2009 and, over the course of working together on other musical efforts, the two now describe themselves as being “cut from the same thread” and “rarely on different pages.”

With such cohesion, Baker and Lynn have found it not only easy but essential to write and produce music together that satisfies their ever-evolving creative spirits.
