Jess Klein

  • Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

Over a career that spans more than a decade and a half and has won her a devoted worldwide fan base, Jess Klein—who possesses what Mojo magazine calls “one of those voices you want to crawl up close to the speakers to listen to” has pursued a remarkable creative evolution that’s seen her dig ever deeper for resonant emotional insights, while continuing to refine her eloquently melodic, effortlessly accessible songcraft.  Jon Pareles of The New York Times calls her “a songwriter with a voice of unblinking tenacity…who finds parables in the everyday and also finds humanity behind the archetypal.”  Klein’s forthcoming album “Back to My Green” is the first project she has co-produced. It features special guests Gaelynn Lea and Jonathan Byrd and will be released 1/25/19.

Mike June

  • Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

Mike June makes decidedly timely music, but he does far more than document an era of unease. He has mastered the precarious balance between despair and hope and rendered it melodic across five albums, including Poor Man’s Bible, released on Slothtrop Records in 2016.

“It’s discovering artists like Mike June that makes this all worthwhile; he can certainly write a song; and the theme throughout of the ‘working man of all colours and persuasions is being trampled on’ but his execution of those songs is second to none,” writes the Rocking Magpie music blog of Poor Man’s Bible. They add that June “certainly has his finger on the button in a way Bruce hasn’t had for 20 years or more.”

One year and one brutal election later, June is pushing that button hard. The results are clear in the three-songs that comprise June’s new single, Alright, out July 14 on Slothtrop. The single features the Raleigh, NC band The Backsliders and also guest stars June’s wife, Jess Klein, on backing vocals.

Humble Tripe

  • Acoustic
  • Classical
  • Folk

Humble Tripe is the music project of North Carolina-based classical guitarist and songwriter Shawn Luby and Boston-based violinist and Berklee graduate Stud Green. In the summer of 2015, supported by a collaboration grant from the Wild Acres Retreat Center in Little Switzerland NC, the long distance duo found themselves nestled in a small cabin on 1600 mountain acres, and began the creation of Humble Tripe’s newest project, The Beginning. The result is a collection of breathtaking performances, showcasing the craftsmanship and intimacy of the duo’s musical arrangements that have come to define their collaboration.
