Wake Owl

 

Singer-songwriter Colyn Cameron of Wake Owl has been immersed in the world of music for the past 10 years. Now based in Vancouver, British Columbia and Portland, Oregon, Cameron was originally born and raised in southern California. After graduation, Cameron trained in organic agriculture at Emerson College in England; worked on different farms throughout the U.K., Germany, Chile, and Canada; and traveled the world. Cameron found his journeys to be a catalyst for writing songs. Upon returning to Vancouver, Cameron spent some time playing in bands before deciding to record the songs he had written after his journey, and thus began the Wild Country EP. The result is a five-song EP that harvests raw, honest, emotion through Cameron’s words and melodies.

DJ Carbo, a.k.a. Mark Kates, was a resident at one of L.A's. electronica clubs, Atmosphere at the Viper Room, as well as the legendary pirate station KBLT. He now hosts the Fenway Recordings Sessions in Boston. Established in Boston in 2004, the Fenway Recordings Sessions is a regular concert series featuring a mix of established acts and the best new and developing indie artists playing the city's clubs, along with occasional special guest DJs.

Lucy Wainwright Roche will release her fourth solo recording, There’s a Last Time for Everything, in the fall of 2013.

According to NPR, Lucy Wainwright Roche has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin. The New York native was born into an influential musical family. She rebelled against the family business by teaching elementary school for several years before getting involved in music. Since 2007, Roche has released two EPs and a studio album entitled Lucy (2010); toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe; and performed with a number of musicians, including the Indigo Girls, Neko Case, and Over the Rhine. She is known for her crystal clear voice and straightforward, funny stage presence.

Suzzy Roche, originally from Park Ridge, New Jersey, is best known for her work with the female vocal group the Roches, alongside sisters Maggie and Terre. Suzzy is the youngest of the three, and joined the act in 1977. After performing with the group professionally for more than 30 years, Roche released a few solo works, including Holy Smokes and Songs from an Unmarried Housewife and Mother, Greenwich Village, USA.
