Hotels and Highways / Mia Dyson / Margaret Glaspy / Edmund Evans
Erin Sidney (aka Syd), Patrick Thomas, and Lisa Piccirillo are each experienced touring and recording artists with self-released albums and a thick portfolio of singer-songwriter accolades. Each has performed showcases at prestigious music festivals, opened for national acts, maintained rigorous touring schedules, and received plenty of quotable love from the press. In the fall of 2010 they came together in a lakeside cabin to form Hotels and Highways and record what would become Lost River, a folk-tinged meditation on the deeper meaning of living and a love letter to the spirit of collaboration.
Mia Dyson is inarguably one of Australia's finest musical exports to the United States. With an ARIA award in hand (Grammy equivalent) for Best Blues and Roots Album and three nominations for Best Female Artist, Dyson moved to Los Angeles and is gracing American audiences with soulful lyrics, extraordinary guitar playing, and her gritty, yet gorgeously haunting voice.
Also appearing are Margaret Glaspy and Edmund Evans.
