Amy Fairchild is a multi-award winning songwriter living in Boston, MA. Right from the start of her musical career in Northampton, MA in 1996, this roots-pop beauty garnered high honors revealing a talented songwriter who deftly gets to the heart of the matter. She won the Lilith Fair Talent Competition in 1999 and took home a top Kerrville Folk Festival prize in 2001. She continued to bring home honors with the release of her 2002 record, "Mr. Heart" (produced by Adam Steinberg) including  The John Lennon Songwriting Competition, Maxell Song of the Year and the Billboard World Song Competition. Dave Marsh said, “If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you’d be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good.” With 12 years between recordings, in June 2014 she released her self-titled third record to the acclaim of the best music writers including the legendary Steve Morse.  Amy shows no signs of taking her foot off the gas as she's just released her fourth record, "Nobody's Satellite" (April, 2017) again produced by Steinberg. Mike Greenblatt in The Aquarian Weekly says this, "When singer/songwriter Amy Fairchild released her impressive 2014 self-titled cd, it was so good that I fell in love with her immediately. Nobody's Satellite is even better. Twenty years in she's just reaching her near-brilliant stride."

SZLACHETKA (pronounced SLA-HET-KA) draws your gaze back to a simpler time when music was less about stylized production and more about its experiential nature. His songwriting finds inspiration in the threads that connect us, weaving a tapestry of familiar moments that pay homage to the past while leaning into a future that is yet capable of such wonder.

Produced by Grammy winning producer David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Mick Jagger, Lucinda Williams, et al.), Szlachetka’s sophomore album “Heart of My Hometown” is slated for release in the summer of 2017. The album’s ‘Americana’ aesthetic blends lavish guitar phrasing and roots-rock sensibilities with vivid storytelling that sounds both raw and polished in the same breath. 

Based in Los Angeles, Matthew Szlachetka has been making music for over a decade, both as the frontman for acclaimed roots-rock band the Northstar Session, with which he released five albums, and as a solo artist. After leaving the Northstar Session in 2013, Szlachetka’s struck out on his own and released his 2014 solo debut album, Waits for a Storm to Find.

Matthew is a prolific songwriter who relishes the creative interplay of collaborative writing and the serendipitous connections that materialize on the road. In the last year alone, he has collaborated with Jamie Kent, Jamie Wyatt, Austin Hanks (Billy Gibbons, ZZ Top), Kevin Savigar (Rod Stewart, Kelsea Ballerini), Paul Freeman, Mando Saenz (Miranda Lambert, Lee Ann Womack, Eli Young Band, Whiskey Myers, Kim Richey, Wade Bowen), Jeff Silbar (Wind Beneath My Wings), Wyatt Durrette (Zac Brown Band), Scott Underwood (TRAIN), Katelyn Clampett, Matt Brown, and Andrew Leahey.

Throughout his travels, Matthew has shared the stage with the likes of include Mike Campbell (from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Chris Isaac, Brandi Carlisle, Huey Lewis & The News, John Waite, Deana Carter, Tommy Emmanuel, Albert Lee, Doyle Dykes, Chris Hillman, Laurence Juber, John Jorgensen, Lee Roy Parnell, Cracker, Camper Van Beethoven, Matthew Sweet, Greg Laswell, Johnette Napolitano, Hanson, Fishbone, The English Beat, Madi Diaz, The California Honeydrops.

Cormac McCarthy is considered one the finest singer/songwriters that New England has ever produced.  He was called by the Boston Globe "A leading light of the urban songwriter revival..." who proclaimed his album Curious Thing a "soft-spoken triumph".  Picture Gallery Blue was called "an unassuming masterpiece" by the Boston Phoenix.  Cormac continues to grow as an artist and it's evident on the new cd COLLATERAL.  It's the product of wisdom and experience with lyrics and images "too precise to be anything but truth"  Portsmouth Herald. Cormac is a fine guitarist and singer who is often very funny.  A show not to be missed.
