Caravan of Thieves»

Like many families, this one started with a married couple – Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) writing and performing as a duo. “It started as a romantic, bohemian vision of a couple making music, performing on the road, in parks, venues, traveling around and avoiding responsibility as much as possible,” says Fuzz. “The first thing we discovered was we loved singing together, harmonizing our voices. Just seemed to click right away.”

Sean Hayes with Birds of Chicago»

Warm, resonant soul and dirt-road folk, all laced with a wandering troubadour’s cool, Sean Hayes lays his buttery, quavering voice over swinging drum patterns, mellifluous piano, and funky horn parts. What sets him apart is his voice a wounded, wavering tone that sounds like a fragile creature, very crushable.

Eilen Jewell»

Although her country-flavored and blues-infused version of contemporary folk has drawn comparisons to musicians like Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, Jolie Holland and the Be Good Tanyas, Eilen Jewell’s strongest influences have been the classic sides recorded by Bessie Smith and Billie Holiday (the latter artist is no doubt the source for Jewell’s characteristic and surprisingly effective stretched, slowed and even slurred vocal mannerisms).

Chatham County Line»
