Alexa Rose
Alexa Rose
Alexa Rose has the rare ability to find strikingly original melodies that nevertheless sound like they must have existed for a long time, stored away maybe in the ether of creativity, self-evident and awaiting discovery. Moving deftly between complex dexterity and heart-tugging familiarity, Rose achieves a sound that pushes gently alongside the bright vocal experimentalism of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom while maintaining the brassy attitude and simple refrains that run straight through American roots music from mountain ballads to rock n roll.

Amidst the sea of earnestly soft-sung songs on the Americana circuit, Rose’s voice stands out with depth and complexity, capable of gymnastic yodels and deep resonance. Rose’s sound evokes the likes of Hurray for the Riff Raff and Margot Price, but she cultivates her own hard-working perspective without imitation or posturing. What separates her from the crowd is a tangible, relatable sense of hunger and realism about the sacrifices of the road, the elusiveness of fulfillment, and the bittersweetness of dreams.
Hoot and Holler
Hoot and Holler
Hoot and Holler is a duo of songwriters and instrumentalists dedicated to honing their craft. Guitarist Mark Kilianski and fiddler Amy Alvey are influenced by wordsmiths like Gillian Welch and Townes van Zandt, as well as authentic mountain musicians like Roscoe Holcomb and Ola Belle Reed. In 2016, they lived out of a camper van and toured across the country. Their enduring love of American folk music has based them in Asheville, North Carolina since spring 2017.
Jackson Emmer
Jackson Emmer
Jackson Emmer’s lyrically playful and intimate Americana style is as gleeful as it is irreverent. Combining an authentic country spirit with an honest and modern perspective, Emmer connects with listeners in the time-honored storytelling tradition.

​His songwriting is often compared to that of John Prine, Roger Miller, and Guy Clark. Emmer has performed hundreds of shows around the country, sharing the stage with Leon Bridges, The Suitcase Junket, and Gill Landry (Old Crow Medicine Show) and many others. He’s now touring nationally in support of his 2018 release “Jukebox,” via Lost Honey Records. Emmer lives in Carbondale, CO.
