Warm, melodious indiepop from Pittsburgh, PA. Ben Harrison has drawn from bands like Yo Ya Tengo, Velvet Underground, Luna, The Bats, and Bill Callahan to create evocative melodies and satisfying guitar textures. But Harrison isn’t just making a patchwork quilt of worthy influences. He is blending them together to make his own statement via a warm and instantly familiar set of songs. Sometimes sounding post-punk and sometimes a bit of dusty Americana, with gravelly but melodic baritone vocals that bring to mind DIY godfather Calvin Johnson.

Ethan Daniel Davidson
Ethan Daniel Davidson is one of Detroit’s finest singer songwriters; lyrically and musically expressive. His golden voice is woven through lyrics, haunted and confessional, like a man seeking penance. His talent is highlighted by collaborations with some of Detroit’s finest musicians and troubadours. It is apparent his world travels have informed his music and his style. His songs are vivid memories of experiences: rooms that smell of old books, smoke from oil lamps, and bohemian escapades. All the fears, beliefs, lies, secrets and desires accumulated, observed and turned into emotional verse that blurs the line between personal and universal. Davidson creates an intimacy and connection with his audience that is deepened by the timeless nature of his storytelling.
