Laura Gibson
Laura Gibson
Laura Gibson is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, born and raised in the small Oregon logging town of Coquille. Her last album, Empire Builder, was praised by Pitchfork as "a cathartic tale of loss and redemption", and was called “a triumph” by Uncut Magazine. Both literary and raw, with a love of traditional folk music and a bent toward experimentation, she has toured four continents, and had the distinct honor of performing the very first NPR Tiny Desk Concert. She recently completed an MFA in fiction writing from Hunter College, and her sharpened language and story telling abilities are on full display on Goners, a new record on Barsuk Records.
Birdie Busch
Birdie Busch has been making and recording independent music from her home base of Philadelphia for over a decade. A combination of loyal radio support across the U.S with every recording, live touring, and solid albums put out both herself and on adventurous independents like Bar/None Records has created a constellation of connect the dots that has created widespread devout fans.
Five full lengths and a couple EP's has had her creating sonic song soundscapes with some of Philly’s finest musicians, producers, and engineers. Critics from American Songwriter to Village Voice have found her of kindred spirit with everyone from Syd Barrett to Eudora Welty, and seem to just keep referring to what she does as her own thing and appreciating that strange place where it resides. City Paper says, “She’s noisy when she might’ve hushed up, nervy when most are relaxed, funny when others stay forlorn and dressy when she could be buttoned-up.” It’s this comfort to contain multitudes that has had her and her band sharing stages with everyone from Richard Thompson and Richie Havens to Dr.Dog and Junip.
