James McCartney
Following the release of his second album The Blackberry Train in 2016, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter James McCartney is set to tour the US in 2017.

James has built a robust international profile through tirelessly touring the UK, Europe and the US, including a sold out three show residency at The Islington in London. Having gained critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and The Daily News, James toured the US in 2016 playing 44 shows in 25 states in just over 6 weeks.

James released his first full-length album Me in 2013, describing it as an, “Intimate, deeply personal, and honest” album that would say, “This is who I am… both musically and personally”. Since then, James has remained fiercely dedicated to his musical vision of melding smart hooks and feral alt-rock with the grandeur and spiritually centeredness of psychedelic music.

The Blackberry Train, engineered by Steve Albini (Nirvana, The Pixies and PJ Harvey), is both a diverse and cohesive album with an eclectic mix of delicately crafted songs. It opens with the jangling rocker, 'Too Hard' which features Dhani Harrison on guitar and vocals and closes with the aptly named folk song 'Peace and Stillness'. The album blends indie-rock, alt-rock, feel-good music, great melodies and catchy hooks. Highlights include the rough-edged and urgently melodic ‘Unicorn', the anthemic 'Peyote Coyote', and the soulful ballad ‘Prayer'. One very personal song is the winsome and reflective ‘Waterfall' which was inspired by memories of his mother.

“I like the music to have elements of the avant-garde, psychedelic, and be just a little against the grain,” James reveals. “But in the end, it's about having as much emotion as possible for me, musically and lyrically. It’s all about the music being cathartic, heartfelt and true.”

Thinking ahead, James says: “I just want to keep on going, keep working, and improving as a songwriter. I’d love to feel that I realised my full potential both as a person, and as a songwriter. That feels like a great, fulfilling goal to shoot for. Making a lot of music, and striving for more depth artistically – those are my goals.”

James shows no signs of slowing down and continues to hone his craft as a songwriter, musician and performer.
Emily Easterly
“With a mix of D.I.Y. attitude, guitar proficiency, and songwriting skills modeled after Cat Power and Exile in Guyville-era Liz Phair, Emily Easterly made her debut in 2001 with the self-released Assembling Emily. Featuring collaborations with several of Easterly’s hometown heroes (including Sparklehorse’s Alan Weatherhead and Cracker guitarist Johnny Hickman), the record was issued during the songwriter’s final weeks of high school in Richmond, VA. The following months saw Easterly relocating several hours south to study music at the University of Miami, where she released Cole in 2002 and garnered support from college radio. Seasons Never Change followed in 2005, boasting an intimate, stripped-down sound that reflected upon the singer’s four-year stay in sunny Miami, and Easterly subsequently moved to Brooklyn to pursue her craft full-time. Inspired by Neil Young, the Beatles, and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar, Heart Comma Heart arrived in late 2007. The following year, Easterly teamed up with fellow songwriter JSeger to record a split single, Please, Please Say Goodnight/City Love Is Strange, which was released on 45-rpm vinyl that fall.” -Andrew Leahey, allmusic.com

In the fall of 2009, Easterly released a new single, “The Only Two On Earth”. At the release show in New York, attendees received a handmade, limited edition copy of the single with the B side “Montreal”. With a recent move from Brooklyn, NY to Asheville, NC in 2011, Easterly has been writing, demoing new songs and learning to play the drums.

“Well-rounded to the point of perfection, sweet, slyly inventive and ultimately highly memorable.” -Richmond Times Dispatch

“The combination of voice, melody and production makes Emily Easterly one to watch.” -Amplifier Magazine
