Jake Currie

Eric Hurlock of Tin Bird Choir

Ed Roper Photography.

Tin Bird Choir is an alt-folk barn rock band from Chester County Pennsylvania. Their unique sound has spread through radio stations across the country, earning their first record, Barn Rock, a debut spot at #9 on the roots music chart. Their music has been featured prominently on Philadelphia radio station WXPN and they’ve graced some of the region’s most celebrated stages, such as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, the World Cafe Live, Johnny Brenda’s, and the Kimmel Center, as well as The Bitter End in New York City. Their music resonates with love and loss as they wail and rock and try to squeeze a bit of light from this time and place we live in. With literate lyrics, organic harmonies, and urgent melodies, their songs seem to say, “Hey, I have been through some heartache and joy, and here is my story, can you relate?” It’s a revival, this barn rock, a soulful meander through life’s richness and darkness, described in the press as intelligent and original, “a throwback to old times when music was simple, often quirky, and even a little spooky.” ReverbNation
Dick Prall

Dodging in and out of pop ditties, lilting melodies, and quirky song structures, Dick Prall’s inability to stay in one musical place is reflective in a body of work that mirrors his personality: youthfully distracted and sweetly cynical. He puts great care into fashioning accessible and viral songs, inserting them with content that, if you look beyond the hooks, shows you a landscape filled with unsavory characters, undesirable behavior, frustrating ambivalence, and a decent dose of thoughtfulness. You could label him a storyteller—one who leaves you happily singing along to tales of serial murder and roadside sex long after you’ve tucked away your ear budswww.dickprall.com
Jason Myles Goss

A three-time regional finalist in the Mountain Stage New Song Contest (2009, 2011, & 2012), Jason released his fourth record, Radio Dial, this past June (recorded with members of Josh Ritter's band). In his latest collection of songs, Jason displays a broad range of influences, from the stark and eclipsing lyricism of Gillian Welch and A. A. Bondy, to the lush, melody-driven, pop/rock ambitions of Ryan Adams' "Gold" and The Wallflowers' "Bringing Down the Horse." www.jasonmylesgoss.com/
