Dan Blakeslee
While attending art school in Baltimore, Maryland Dan Blakeslee, a Maine native discovered that he had an equal and deeply rooted connection to music. He would sneak into the galleries to play his guitar through the late hours of the evening surrounded by easels and oil paintings. After four years in “Charm City” he returned to his childhood home in the Tatnic Woods of South Berwick, ME. That summer he played street corners in New Hampshire and Maine while working at a lobster restaurant. His employer urged him to sever ties to manual labor for one of a more musical nature. A phone call from a friend offering him a room in Somerville, MA began his journey south in 1995. While settling into this artful community he began to practice his craft in the smoke laden subways of Boston. He now has been making music and art in the New England region ever since, leading him to tour the U.S.. He has performed with The Low Anthem, David Wax Museum, Lydia Loveless, The Lumineers, Deer Tick, Liam Finn, Brown Bird, Joe Fletcher, Jonah Tolchin, Pearl and the Beard, Will Dailey, Death Vessel, Kimya Dawson among others. In 2015 his dream of playing Newport Folk Festival became a reality, the location where Bob Dylan went electric 50 years earlier.
Blakeslee has six albums under his belt. Two recorded by long time art school friend Ron Harrity (Peapod Recordings). The first of the two “Lincoln Street Roughs” was recorded in a warehouse called The Map Room in Portland, Maine in 2007. The next was “Tatnic Tales” released on May 10, 2011. It is a collection of Blakeslee’s country folk songs most stemming from real life experiences. This album features his band The Calabash Club who formed in a Dover, NH basement in October of 2008. The members: Mike Effenberger – piano, Nick Phaneuf – bass, and Jim Rudolf – drums; are the essential ingredients in this acoustic folk outfit. “Tatnic Tales” was recorded in Dean Ludingtons barn in North Berwick, ME by the railroad as the friendship between the members of the band bloomed. “Tatnic” is the first full length album the band has recorded together to date. Blakeslee’s most recent album “Owed To The Tanglin’ Wind” was recorded at the Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI by Ben Knox Miller and Jeffrey Prystowsky (The Low Anthem). It was released August 19th, 2014 with which Blakeslee did extensive touring in 2015. This album received “Album Of The Year” from Red Line Roots. Blakeslee was also awarded 2014 “Folk Artist Of The Year” at the Boston Music Awards, and “Male Performer of The Year” at the 2015 New England Music Awards.
The hills and highways are made for wandering, this has been deep rooted in Dan Blakeslee who performs an average of 200 shows per year. In a gymnasium at Laconia Prison (NH) in 2005, a crowd of 150 inmates became hushed after hearing Blakeslee’s songs of hardship, hope and true grit. Late winter of 2006 brought a string of 27 shows with Tiger Saw (Dylan Metrano, Alan Bull, Angel Deradoorian (Dirty Projectors)) to the southern US and straight up the Mississippi River igniting his passion to continue on this path. Upon returning from the 120 mile journey by foot on the Massachusetts Walking Tour in June of 2012 Blakeslee mapped out a tour of a different shape slated for the fall of that year. This venture spanned 7 states, with Blakeslee performing 31 shows in 25 days as his Halloween alter ego “Doctor Gasp” making a connect the dots Jack-O-Lantern face on a map of New England. 2013 brought him to Austin, TX in March for SXSW followed by a tour with his band “The Calabash Club” in late June of that year. His first full USA Tour will come to fruition in 2016.
A prolific artist, Dan Blakeslee has made over 600 rock posters in his career some of which are featured in the book “Art of Modern Rock” published by Chronicle Books. He has done album covers for dozens of bands including Assembly of Dust, Slaid Cleaves, The Tan Vampires, Jonah Tolchin and many more. After seeing his posters, The Portsmouth Brewery (NH) asked Blakeslee to draft 8 beer label designs and the Northampton Brewery (MA) followed soon after commissioning him to make a label six pack design. His beer label art has garnered national recognition with the Alchemist Brewery’s (VT) “Heady Topper” in 2012 and “Focal Banger” in 2014. His silk screened posters traveled the USA in the “National Poster Retrospecticus” in 2013 curated by the LAP Gallery.
Andy Ferrell
Boone, North Carolina native Andy Ferrell (now an Asheville resident) plays catchy updated country-folk with a distinctive to-the-point voice.

Andy Ferrell's strong hum-able melodies bring to mind the tunes of Doc, Jimmie, Hank, Woody, Johnny, Bob, Willie, and Townes, among others.

Andy Ferrell has that song-fire burning inside. So gather 'round, feel the warmth, and get lit!
M.T. Sullivan
M.T. Sullivan is the juxtaposition of church choir and punk rock. She is what happens when devotion meets distortion; when grit meets grace. With roots that run deep through the dirt of spirituality, she has come to boldly define music as a sacrament—an outward expression of a deep, inner faith.

For over a decade now, this soft-spoken powerhouse has been putting out albums at an almost frenetic rate. Under a laundry list of names, she has been the prolific writer behind stacks of songs. In her most current incarnation, Mary comes to us as M.T. Sullivan—the electric guitar wielding, folk-pop-ballad singing artist. This time she is a little less gypsy; a little less alter ego. She has stepped into some dark rooms and deep forests, all in an attempt to get quiet, to empty out and to be filled by something larger than herself.

In her forthcoming album, Surrender, M.T. Sullivan invites us to come out from under the influence of music as we know it. Recorded in an old church, there’s a richness and textured quality to this project. Through its genre crossing, bridging, and bending we are offered the amalgam of rock and roll along with the simplicity of psalm. We are asked to recall our pasts, and yet, allowed to shake the dust. Surrender is a sanctuary, for singer and audience alike.
