Allegra Krieger is a New York-based songwriter & composer. With emotive lyricism and explorative harmony, her songs are at once cathartic and compelling. She lives in a 5th floor walk-up apartment in lower Manhattan where she spends her mornings writing by a window, which looks down on a bustling E-bike repair storefront and a United Methodist church. When mid-afternoon hits, she walks over to her bartending job up the street, or, on days off, heads towards the East River for a swim. She likes most things that are likeable, and some things that are objectionable.
Allegra was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Florida, back to Pennsylvania, and has since spent significant time in Death Valley, Andalucía, the Blue Ridge Mountains, and many other places that she can’t remember before settling in New York City.
Structure and it’s encroaching destruction are vital to Allegra’s creative process, like steps to a staircase in a burning house.
Solely, the sophomore album by folk guitarist/singer-songwriter Natalie Jane Hill, is a record of transition. While the Central Texas native’s debut “Azalea” grew from years spent developing a textural narrative voice and idiosyncratic guitar style in the vibrant Blue Ridge Mountains, “Solely” represents a period of inward growth, and an outward push into an expanded sonic palette.
Following a move back to the Austin area in the fall of 2019, Natalie began an intensive period of reflection, and expanded her song-craft’s foundations from the broader themes of nature into the vulnerable intricacies of self-discovery. Along with this process came an openness to external creative input.
Since the release of “Solely”, these songs have been celebrated and recognized by NPR, Dusted Magazine, Folk Radio UK, The Bluegrass Situation, Austin Chronicle and Austin American Statesman to name a few.
In the winter of 2022, Hill relocated back to the Asheville NC area with plans on writing a new record and performing shows around western NC.
Daniel Shearin is a singer, songwriter and producer living in Asheville, NC and a member of the internationally touring band River Whyless. Growing up in a small town near the coast of North Carolina, he moved west to the mountains to work at Echo Mountain Recording, a new (at the time) and highly acclaimed studio in Asheville. In addition to his work there as a Grammy-nominated engineer, he now produces music from his own studio, Sleeping Dogs in West Asheville. Between the two, he has worked across many genres with artists such as Band of Horses, Toubab Krewe,The Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, Mipso to name a few. When working on his own music, he experiments with looped harmonium drones and other textures, instruments and “found sounds” to accompany his singing and finger-style guitar. He has released an eponymous EP of his solo material and several albums with River Whyless.
