Sorcha Richardson
-from Dublin, IE
-After recent slots opening for Mitski, Villagers, and James Vincent McMorrow, Dublin born singer/songwriter Sorcha Richardson released her second album Smiling Like an Idiot on September 23rd, reaching number 1 in the Irish Independent album charts and No. 4 in the Irish Album Charts. The follow up to 2019’s critically acclaimed and Choice Prize nominated First Prize Bravery, the album features 11 songs including Shark Eyes, Archie and Spotlight Television.

-from Los Angeles, CA
-PAPA is the project of singing drummer Darren Weiss, one of LA’s music staples. Once described as “Joe Strummer and the E Street Band,” PAPA blends the urgency and passion of their early punk influences with a classic sense of songwriting that makes their music feel fresh, vital, and somehow like it’s always been there.

PAPA released an ep titled, A Good Woman Is Hard To Find in 2011, and two lps - Tender Madness in 2013 and Kick At The Dust 2016

Since PAPA’s last release, Weiss has been busy as a touring and session drummer with the likes of Lana Del Rey, Albert Hammond Jr and Perfume Genius among others. Yet, it is clear from listening to pieces of the upcoming release, Weiss has so much more to say.

Asha Wells
-from Oakland, CA
-“Water Words” is the debut album from Bay Area based non-binary artist Asha Wells.

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Wells relocated to Salt Lake City with their family, finding a home in the city’s all ages underground music scene. Arriving back in the Bay Area in 2018, their sound took a genre-expanding turn that reflects their colorful music history. Inspired by the works of Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, and Jeff Buckley, Wells found themselves experimenting with open guitar tunings and atmospheric textures paired with thought provoking imagery.

Working with co-producer Jason Kick at his Tunnel Vision studio in Oakland, the pair recorded 1-2 songs a week at the height of the pandemic. Kick brought his knack for arrangement, synthesis, and drum programming, helping to create a supportive environment for Wells’ atmospheric guitars and haunting melodies. The resulting album pairs textured sounds with tender harmonies, calling to mind the work of contemporary art forward singer-songwriters like Aldous Harding, Hand Habits, and Cate Le Bon as much as torchbearers like Patti Smith, Cat Power, and Fiona Apple.
