Anthony da Costa is a singer/songwriter/guitarist living in Nashville, TN. Originally hailing from Pleasantville, NY, Anthony has been writing and performing his songs since he was thirteen. At the age of sixteen, Anthony became the youngest winner ever of both the Falcon Ridge and Kerrville Folk Festival songwriting competitions. His latest release is DA COSTA,  a self-produced album which was recorded in Austin, TX and features contributions from Aaron Lee Tasjan and Devon Sproule, as well as members of Okkervil River, Ben Kweller, and Eric Johnson. Sing Out! Magazine once called him “an outstanding writer of plainspoken Americana.”

Anthony has opened for Loretta Lynn, Dan Bern, Judy Collins, Suzanne Vega, Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation), John Moreland, Kenny Loggins and other awesome folks like that. He played guitar in a band called Nancy and Beth, featuring actor/singers Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Stephanie Hunt. That band has played some amazing stages, including CONAN on TBS. Anthony spent 2016 as the touring guitarist and harmony singer for Aoife O’Donovan (Crooked Still, Prairie Home Companion) and can currently be found playing alongside Grammy Award-winning songwriter Sarah Jarosz. He's appeared at numerous festivals around the world, such as the Newport Folk Festival, Sasquatch, Tønder (Denmark) and Celtic Connections (Scotland).

Dietrich Strause’s songs are a mix of timeless melody, literate lyricism, and a "virtuosic command of imagery.” (The Artery, WBUR) Strause released his new album How Cruel That Hunger Binds on August 26th, produced by Zachariah Hickman (Ray LaMontage, Josh Ritter), the next benchmark in his steady evolution as one of the most eclectic writers and performers coming out of New England.  His newest collection of songs is found somewhere in the shadows of the likes of Randy Newman, Nick Lowe, and Paul Simon. Strause dropped out of music school, where he was studying classical trumpet, to become a politics major and take up the guitar. But that hasn’t kept him from incorporating his first instrument into the texture of his recordings, or from putting down the guitar to lead his band with just his voice and his trumpet. His last release Little Stones to Break the Giant’s Heart was featured in No Depression, The Bluegrass Situation, CMT’s The Edge, and on Starbucks’ world wide playlist, helping him garner invitations on the road with folk luminaries such as Anais Mitchell, Great Lake Swimmers, and Sarah Jarosz.
