ELIZABETH AND THE CATAPULT
Elizabeth Ziman, who performs as Elizabeth and the Catapult, ​is a critically acclaimed singer/songwriter from New York, living and working in Brooklyn. She's toured​ with the likes of Sara Bareille​s​ and Kishi Bashi​; collaborated with ​with Esperanza Spalding, Gillian Welch​, Blake Mills​​ and​ Ben Folds​; scored, with Paul Brill, a variety of international award-winning documentaries including Trapped, ​a Peabody winner; and won the 2015 Independent Music Award for Songwriting, Folk category. Her songs have been featured in national television campaigns for Google, Amazon, Sky TV, and ​"​So You Think You Can Dance​"​​.

Always writing, Elizabeth has narrowed her vast collection of previously unrecorded material down to her fourth full-length studio album Keepsake, produced by Dan Molad of Lucius and featuring collaborations with Richard Swift (The Shins). Her most personal record yet, Keepsake is about nostalgia and transformation, hope tempered with regret— it’s a distillation of the human experience, a universe unto itself​.​

LAURA CORTESE & THE DANCE CARDS
Cutting her teeth as a sideman in Boston's roots music scene, Laura Cortese forged a unique path through a pool rich in talent (due to a large population of Berklee School of Music graduates like herself) including stints as an instrumentalist with Band of Horses, Pete Seeger, Rose Cousins, Jocie Adams (of the Low Anthem), and Uncle Earl. Her Compass Records debut, CALIFORNIA CALLING, is the next step in her career as a frontwoman and bandleader — she & the Dance Cards — Valerie Thompson (cello), Jenna Moynihan (fiddle), and Zoe Guigueno (bass) break new ground with a bold and elegant new album, based in the lyrical rituals of folk music but exploring new territories of rhythm and sonics. With the support of Sam Kassirer, album producer of folk-pop favorites like Lake Street Dive and Joy Kills Sorrow, they've created something that's simultaneously rowdy, delicate and cinematic. This is post-folk that seriously rocks.

THE GOOD GRACES
The Good Graces is an indie-folk collective based in Atlanta, GA. Formed by singer-songwriter Kim Ware in 2006, tGG has performed up and down the east coast, in California, the Midwest, and at such festivals as 30A, NXNE, Athens Pop Festival, and International Pop Overthrow. Their previous album, «Close to the Sun,» explored a variety of styles and genres, from folk and alt. country to 90s-inspired indie pop. In 2015, the album caught the attention of the Indigo Girls, and the band was asked by the renowned duo to support some midwest and southeast shows during their summer tour. The new record, «Set Your Sights,» marks their 4th full-length collection, and once again places Kim's heart-on-her-sleeve songwriting and earnest, honest lyrical delivery at the forefront of a sonic expedition led by producer / guitarist Jonny Daly and supported by a long list of players from Atlanta and the southeast.
