    THE BLUEGRASS SITUATION: “Southern California’s home for everything bluegrass, folk, and Americana”

  • Son Ark

    Son Ark

    Son Ark has been filling establishments across Los Angeles with their unmistakably unique brand of folk rock and with lyrics that tell tales of bygone eras and heartbreaking love lost. Son Ark's "unvarnished, heart-on-its-sleeve roots rock sneaks up on you like a speed trap on a two-lane highway" (Buzzbands). Son Ark longingly reminds us of days gone by. The songs are not antiques, though. Influenced by the likes of Andrew Bird, Avett Brothers, the Pixies, and Led Zeppelin, Son Ark tells their tales in a decidedly contemporary way and their live performances will persuade you to "overcome your too-cool-for-folk attitude" (LA Music Blog). In summer 2007, singer Robin Harris, guitarist Sherman Pascoe, and bassist Chris Sousa met by luck or by fate and began playing played at speakeasies, cafe bars, and street corners alike for the next year. Meanwhile, in Boston, banjo player Matt Sousa began hearing of his cousin Chris' escapades and decided to move West and join the band. Pat Butterworth entered the ranks in 2008. Adrian Prohaska joined on mandolin and vocals in 2011, completing the band. From that moment on, Son Ark has made stages such the Echo, the Satellite, and the Bootleg Theater their stomping grounds. In November of 2011, Son Ark released their Much Obliged EP, which is full of "layered harmonies that effortlessly float above bright Americana arrangements" (BuzzbandsLA). That July, Son Ark hit the road and played up and down the west coast from San Diego, CA to Portland, OR. 2012 came to an end with Son Ark's debut music video, Going to the Woods. Son Ark is currently working on their first full-length record, The Land of Smoke, due out in June 2013

  • Cahalen Morrison & Eli West

    Cahalen Morrison & Eli West

    Cahalen Morrison & Eli West are, simply put, two of the most innovative and subtle roots musicians today. Their music draws from old folk sources, but it sounds vibrantly alive. Cahalen Morrison writes songs that sound like a Cormac McCarthy novel: simple, beautifully crafted, and seemingly formed from raw natural elements. Eli West brings jagged, angular arrangements based in bluegrass and old-time, but refracted through a 21st century lens. Like Ansel Adams’ photography, their music is instantly accessible and built from the simplest materials, but at the same time seems to transcend its base fundamentals. Together, Cahalen and Eli tap the root of the old country and bluegrass duets. As the sparse landscapes of Cahalen’s vocals reflect the warm glow of Eli’s voice, it’s clear that this duo was made to sing together.
