    The Last Bison

    “The Last Bison make theatrical folk music that refuses to stand still and isn’t afraid to get loud.” – Wondering Sound To capture the new sounds on The Last Bison’s upcoming album titled VA (pronounced Virginia,) the band spent many days and nights in an old A-frame cabin. The cabin, called “the Wigwam” sits on a summer camp on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp near the band’s home in Chesapeake, Virginia. The pine-lined walls and high-lofted beams became home to a temporary studio where front man Ben Hardesty says, “We had freedom to explore and create without the time constraints we lived under on previous projects.” Out of this rustic cabin emerged a collection of music with booming organic drums and energy beyond anything on their previous work. Having drawn comparisons in the past to indie superstars the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Decemberists, and Fleet Foxes, their most recent project harvests a more dynamic, and anthemic sound from the soil of their folk roots. The addition of electric bass and keyboards to their extensive collection of acoustic instruments has been compared to Bob Dylan going electric at Newport in 1965. After a performance at Norfolk, Virginia’s Harborfest, the The Daily Press commented on the new musical direction saying, “The result is a more rocking sound, though the band still remains true to its folkie roots.” Following their first independent release, Quill, in 2011, The Last Bison was signed to Universal Republic Records and created the Inheritance album in 2013. The most recent project finds The Last Bison returning to their independent roots, having self-produced the project in collaboration with Media House Music. The Last Bison album, VA, is due for release September 30, 2014 with a tour to follow.

  • Yellow Red Sparks

    Yellow Red Sparks

    In an instant, Yellow Red Sparks captivates, pulls us close, and invites us to see the world through the center of their songwriter, Joshua Hanson. He possesses a staggering ability to take seemingly normal circumstances, rewrite them with an honest and wistful beauty, and turn them into vivid scenes as told through a unique brand of cinematic folk. Supported by Sara Lynn (upright bass, vocals), the California-based duo effectively finds a way to take Hanson’s songs of heartache and make us want to fall in loveTheir self-titled debut album was produced by Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, Gaslight Anthem, Lucero), mixed by Grammy award winner, Ryan Hewitt (Avett Brothers, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and mastered by multi-Grammy award winner, Brian Lucey (The Shins, Sigur Ros, Black Keys).

    Kris Orlowski

    Baritone vocalist, new folk songwriter Kris Orlowski writes from a real, unguarded place and that accessibility is tangible on stage and off. Sound on the Sound brands him as “a troubadour by definition, whose full bodied croon develops a charisma all its own.” With the significant talents of Mark Isakson on guitar, Torry Anderson on keys, Greg Garcia on drums and Tyler Carroll on bass, the northwest folk pop band is turning heads. Their new five song EP, featuring a 17-piece orchestra, keeps the band evolving in sound with songwriting at the core of their future.
