Jean Marie was born and raised in the foggy climes of San Francisco but now calls Brooklyn her home. She makes quiet folk music in the tradition of Nick Drake and Elliott Smith.
Rachel Easterly was raised on somber/cutesy church songs in Ohio and now writes somber/cutesy songs in New York that she hopes pass the Bechdel test.
The MoMos hail from the swamps of your heart. Sometimes known as Franky and The MoMos, the MoMos like to drink whiskey and tell tall tales concerning crickets and birds. Their twangy garage music will have your feet a tappin'.
Karen & the Sorrows
Brooklyn alt-country band Karen & the Sorrows play “soaring tributes to lost love and… gentle and charming ballads” (Neville Elder, No Depression). Their debut EP Ocean-Born Mary is a four-part ghost story of “allusive, attractive but distantly menacing songs… Country keeps evolving, and Karen & the Sorrows are taking it to a place it’s never been before, a good and creepy one.” (New York Music Daily)
