Joan Shelley quickly follows her acclaimed 2014 album Electric Ursa with Over and Even, a quieter, more contemplative set recorded in her home state of Kentucky. Her rich voice and clear tone make her an honest and believable artist. Shelley has been praised by Rolling Stone, NPR, and Pitchfork, and the New York Times recently wrote that “her music is folky and pastoral, with a sense of scale that makes her humble about her place in mankind and the universe, and her songs are serene but never complacent.” Over and Even is her third record.

Sam Moss is a Boston-based songwriter and string player. His work rambles through various offshoots of Americana from original and interpreted folk songs to pastoral and occasionally jagged instrumental guitar. In May 2016 he will release Fable, his ninth solo album. Moss has released two albums with the old-time group the Howling Kettles and compiled Imaginational Anthem Volume Five for Tompkins Square Records. He is the recipient of a MacDowell Colony fellowship, and his work has been featured in No Depression, Pitchfork, The FADER, Paste, and Daytrotter, among others.
