Folly Fields is an Indie-folk-rock collaborative project started in Philadelphia in 2012 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Ally Leedy. Together they weave synth-pop sounds with folkloric narratives. Listening to Irish-folk music growing up in rural Ohio Leedy started writing and performing at age 15. She now draws on a wide range of influences and inspirations, from Sharon Van Etten and Juana Molina to The National and Sufjan Stevens. Folly Fields released their first album "Limbs and Longings" in 2014. Their most recent EP "Fluid Lungs" (2015) is available on bandcamp, soundcloud, spotify and itunes. Folly Fields's second full-length album released in February 2017 was written and recorded at Gullkistan artist residency in Iceland in collaboration with bass/banjo/guitar player Ilan Jenkins.
An alt-rock group based in Denver, Kinesics is inspired by Daughter, Pinegrove, and the spirit of Saddle Creek, apparent in their impactful lyrics with almost too many words packed into each line and spacey instrumentation. The songwriting in this project primarily functions as a processing mechanism for everyday communication and interaction… and sometimes for coping with Game of Thrones.
Kinesics is comprised of Kenzi Everitt on vocals/guitar, Jason Barteck on guitar, Malena Nystuen on bass, and Corban Roberts on drums. Currently working on their first full-length album, they are excited to take their time while working with some truly incredible friends and engineers. The album is set for release in Summer 2017, but you can keep up with the group through their work with The Overlook Sessions and Songwriters & Stem Ciders. They also enjoy crafting, craft beer, and going on double dates.
