- Folk Pop
Oshima Brothers‘ magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy result from a lifetime of making music together. Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, the brothers have honed a harmony-rich blend of contemporary folk and acoustic pop. On stage, Sean and Jamie create a surprisingly full sound with dynamic vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loops, and percussion.
The women of Hawthorn craft songs with “a weight that sits with you long after their audible presence fades” (Red Line Roots). Working from the belief that tradition is made to evolve, Heather and Taylor chart a creative course through Appalachian and Celtic roots to the present-day. With a powerful vocal blend surrounded in old-time banjo, seascape guitar, and dreamy electric lines, Hawthorn is quickly claiming a place in the music of New England and beyond. Their second album, Maggie Willow, lands in March 2019.
