The Hillary Reynolds Band invites listeners into a transcendent folk experience. With campfire congeniality, classic songs, and a soulful and technical grasp of Americana, this quintet has risen from coffeehouse darlings to sharing stages with Norah Jones and performing at festivals in front of thousands. In advance of an upcoming album, the band released sthe single “Crossing the Line,” marking a new era of widespread exposure for these roots-pop torchbearers. 

Voted Best Live Artist of 2013 by Salem State University. As the Sparrow is a folk influenced rock-swing band based around the songwriting of Mark Damon and Crystal Araiza. Coming out of Boston, the band  draws from the energy of big band swing music as well as the intimacy and poetry of the folk genre. In May, As the Sparrow released the In a Box EP with the help of engineers Steve Aliperta and Chris LaRocque (The Color and Sound, Pray for Sound, The Dirty Looks) at Kennedy Studios.
