Hearts Gone South- Asheville's Honky Tonk Darlins playing original honky tonk hits and pure country gold.
Jonah Tolchin
In 2012, with Criminal Man enjoying airplay at home and abroad along with fine notices in the media, Jonah Tolchin was asked to perform at the Newport Folk Festival. The pivotal experience came at a time when he was beginning to realize something. "Everything I've done since the beginning of my songwriting and performing career has been an evolution," he says, "And I've come to realize that I don't really consider myself a folk artist. I'm not an anything artist anymore: I don't believe in genres."

Tolchin has followed Criminal Man with the 5 Dollar EP, his first collaboration with producer Marvin Etzioni (Lone Justice). Its tracks were recorded solo, completely live. Etzioni rigged up a vintage Califone turntable and set the needle into the runout groove of Jon Wayne's Texas Funeral record. Tolchin played along to the crackle and hum, losing himself in a bygone sonic environment. The result is a visceral session that is also strangely otherworldly. "It was almost like a middle finger to the way records are made these days," says Tolchin, smiling.

Upon hearing "Song About Home," Roseanne Cash remarked, "This is an aching, intimate anthem that resonates with every journeyman or woman who's longing for home, real or imagined, inside or out."

Etzioni and Tolchin recorded the upcoming full-length Clover Lane, Tolchin's first full-band record, quickly and spontaneously in Nashville, with Mike Anderson engineering and an impressive cast that includes Chris Scruggs, Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), John McCauley (Deer Tick), Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson), and more. It was mixed in Silverlake, California with Sheldon Gomberg and subsequently mastered by Bernie Grundman.
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. and abroad. He has performed with The Low Anthem, David Wax Museum, The Lumineers, Deer Tick, Liam Finn, Brown Bird, Joe Fletcher, Jonah Tolchin, Pearl and the Beard, Will Dailey, Death Vessel and Kimya Dawson to name a few.

Blakeslee has five albums under his belt. The last 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 most recent album “Tatnic Tales” was released on May 10, 2011. It is a collection of Blakeslee’s country folk songs most stemming from real life experiences.

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. His silk screened posters will be traveling the USA in the “National Poster Retrospecticus” in 2013 curated by the LAP Gallery.
