Dear June

Liz Wyatt and Justin Kelley are Dear June, a country folk duo from Boston. Although newly formed, Dear June has already made a splash in the local music scene. Their blend of unique harmonies and compelling lyrics have an old-time feel and a distinctly refreshing sound. 
 
Wyatt is a Jersey girl with country roots. Rebelling against her classical operatic training, she started listening to Joni Mitchell and writing finger-picked folk with intricate lyrics, and she's stuck with it ever since. Kelley is a Massachusetts native who found his way to music through playing the trumpet. However, he quickly transitioned to songwriting and has never looked back.

The Wiles, formerly known as Ellie Buckland and Isa Burke, are comprised of two fiddles, two guitars, a doghouse bass, and two (sometimes three) intertwining voices. They perform old folk songs, new Americana, and original songs in an acoustic roots style. Buckland and Burke met as kids at a fiddle camp in the woods of Maine and began singing songs together. Their undeniable musical chemistry found its way to Boston, and they started performing together in 2013. Bassist Mali Obomsawin, a fellow Mainer and fiddle camper, joined the band a year later. They bring soul, energy, depth, and effervescent vocal harmonies to honest music that blends the old and the new.

The Wiles have graced the stages of One Longfellow Square, Club Passim, and Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival and were awarded a 2014 Iguana Music Fund grant to record their debut EP.

The Dingo Babies' name, like their music, was unexpected but it stuck. Focused on tight harmonies harkening back to Dispatch and the new piano-rock sound of Crash Kings, their blended style falls somewhere along the lines of the Avett Brothers, Alt-J, and Ben Folds Five in a style they call folk/pop/piano rock. They began performing in small local venues and at homeless shelters and food kitchens through Berklee's student-run service program called The Movement. They have continued to stay active in service, raising over $1,000 with their music to benefit the human rights organization Calling All Crows by performing on the street. 

They have released one full-length album, Breakfast (called "eclectic, interesting, and accessible," by WMFO-FM), and they have opened for acts such as Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio). They are currently working on an EP.

Grey Season

Grey Season perches harmonies atop a sound that is, in essence, folk wrapped in rock 'n' roll. A Grey Season performance may involve a five-part harmony, blues-rooted guitar solos, and memorable melodies driven by the plucking of bouzoukis and banjos. This band calls upon a collective musical memory while pushing forward together, dedicated to the power of song and the hearts of a growing audience.

Their debut album, Time Will Tell You Well, was released at a sold-out show on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the Middle East in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It was produced by Benny Grotto, a Boston Music Awards producer of the year, and three-time Grammy winner Justin Guip at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York. The band recently played South by Southwest at the Boston and Beyond showcase in Austin, Texas and has been touring throughout the Northeast in support of Time Will Tell You Well.
