Ha Ha Tonka
Brett Anderson -guitar, mandolin and vocals
James Cleare - absolutely everything
Lucas Long - bass & vocals
Mike Reilly - drums & vocals
Brian Roberts - guitar & vocals
-from West Plains, MO
-Over their history, Ha Ha Tonka has recorded four critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, played Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, and appeared on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations. Through it all, these Ozarks natives have made friends, found love, started familes, and grown and matured together. Heart-Shaped Mountain is a reflection of that development and maturity. Once aptly summed as "Indie-Americana, where Alabama meets Arcade Fire, " Ha Ha Tonka has expanded their sonic palette, unveiling balanced, sublime, pop radio accessible heights and an emotionally broader, post-punk songwriting range, a la Apache Relay or a less enigmatic Jonsi, while keeping their trademark harmonizing vocals, jangly Southern revelry and crunchy hooks fully in tact. At it's core, Heart-Shaped Mountain is an album about love and growth. At a time when divisiveness fills the headlines, Ha Ha Tonka is fighting the good fight, building narrative-tributes to friends and loved ones, memories past and prospects of the future.

-Wildling write the sort of melodic, heartfelt, indie rock n' roll that is sure to put them in class with the greats. From the huge, in-your-face chorus of "Hummingbird," to the softer river of sound found in "Change Your Mind," this California 3-piece deliver songs that make a very strong statement for an up and coming band. The band's members are no strangers to the music game. Singer, Ryan Levine, has been playing music with piano/keys player Andrew Ampaya for over 10 years. Though they've had a few different bands together, and one major record deal behind them, it is clear that Wildling is the project Ryan & Andrew are meant to be doing. With the addition of bassist Justin Levine, Ryan's brother, Wildling took shape and immediately headed into the studio. With traces of legends like Fleetwood Mac and Paul Simon, to current favorites such as The Black Keys and Young the Giant, it's easy to see why people are starting to talk about Wildling as a band to watch out for.
Gemma Rose - voice/bass
Miranda Lee - voice/keys/guitar
-from San Francisco, CA
-Dagmar is an indie classical, harmony driven female duo recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from their prairie homeland of Iowa. A new music project with history, Gemma Cohen (vocals, bass) and Miranda Mallard (vocals, keyboard, guitar) are Dagmar's core. They have attained sister status after having sung together for over 8 years in the trio Rock Paper Scissors, and now in Dagmar since 2014.
Gemma and Miranda create original music while rocking their curly manes and singing from the depths of their souls. Harmonies continue to be a staple for this duo along with influences ranging from Phillip Glass to the Fleet Foxes. Dagmar's sound is raw, challenging, a vulnerable vocal driven exposition of Medieval harmonies and uncrumpled diaries.
