  • Folk
  • Singer/Songwriter

Classically-trained singer / pianist Olivia Chaney graduated from England’s Royal Academy of Music, before teaching herself guitar and Indian harmonium, delving back to the inspiration behind the British folk revivalists. She has since built a loyal and growing following as a songwriter and interpreter, both in the UK and internationally, through her acclaimed and eclectic live performances and recorded works.

Over the past few years, Olivia has collaborated and shared the stage with a diverse range of artists including Robert Plant, Eliza and Martin Carthy, The Decemberists, Shirley Collins, Alasdair Roberts, Kronos Quartet, Zero 7 and The Labèque Sisters. In 2013, she self-released an eponymous EP, that was followed by her critically-acclaimed 2015 Nonesuch debut, The Longest River. This sophomore release, which The Guardian hailed as ‘an enchanting and stately creation’, was noted in a number of ‘Best Of 2015’ lists, (Uncut, Mojo, PopMatters, Chicago Reader and more); whilst The Independent featured it in their Top 5 Albums of the Year, calling it ‘A landmark release’.

Dietrich Strause

Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a “virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) ​In less than one year, Strause released ​two albums — How Cruel That Hunger Binds and Dietrich Strause & The Blue Ribbons — proving himself to be one of the most prolific and eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England. His blend of midcentury modern pop and atomic-age folk has drawn comparisons to M. Ward and a young Paul Simon​ and has garnered him invitations to support folk luminaries such as Anais Mitchell and Sarah Jarosz, to indie pop acts like Great Lake Swimmers and Lake Street Dive. This fall he spent three months living in London and touring extensively throughout the UK & Ireland by train and foot, writing material for his next release.
