Armerding, Erelli, Cousins, and Hickman gather in the 14th year of Under the Covers!

 

The Boston Globe calls composer-violinist Jake Armerding "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years."  The original song "Catchy Paul & Dreamy John," from his new album Cosmos in the Chaos, was a finalist in the 2013 Newsong Contest.

Armerding grew up playing classical violin and listening to 80's pop radio.  Over the course of 2000 performances, he has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

He lives in Minneapolis.

Mark Erelli finished up a graduate degree in evolutionary biology shortly after his eponymous debut was released on Signature Sounds in 1999. He has won several prestigious awards, including the Kerrville New Folk contest and the International Song Contest, where a song he co-wrote with Catie Curtis ("People Look Around") bested 15,000 entries to win the grand prize. For the past 18 years, he has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, appearing onstage everywhere from coffeehouses and major folk festival stages (Newport, Philadelphia) to Fenway Park, where he once sang the national anthem before a Red Sox game. In recent years, Erelli has gained notoriety as a multi-instrumentalist sideman and producer, accompanying GRAMMY-winning artists such as Lori McKenna, Paula Cole and Josh Ritter everywhere from Nashville's Grand Ole Opry to London's Royal Albert Hall. In addition to producing two records for McKenna, Erelli's own diverse discography includes collections of western swing, lullabies, bluegrass (with his band Barnstar!) and songs of stirring social conscience, as well as several highly-acclaimed collaborations (2009's Darwin Song Project and 2010's Seven Curses, a collection of murder ballads recorded with Jeffrey Foucault). His tenth and newest solo album, For A Song (released in 2016), was likened to "the best of Paul Simon or Jackson Browne’s work...stories that are immediately relatable and reflective of the small moments in our lives." (No Depression)

Rose Cousins isn’t afraid of feelings. Her music explores the shadowy corners of a heart: sadness, pain and desire for love in all of its simplicity and complication. Native of Prince Edward Island, she lives in Halifax. With additional roots in Boston, she values her many musical communities and is constantly fueled by collaboration. Her 2012 album, WE HAVE MADE A SPARK took home a Canadian JUNO Award along with many other awards including a spot on NPR’s Top 10 Americana & Folk Albums. In September 2014, she released an EP called STRAY BIRDS – a collection of meaningful covers and original songs.

Master of acoustic and electric bass, Zack Hickman has played pump organ, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, upright piano, ukulele, trombone and sousaphone at performances in the past. (The trombone was hanging on the wall of a club in Carbondale, CO, lending some insight into Zack's generally ambitious nature.) One of the few for whom superlatives truly fail, Zack has been featured in both the Improper Bostonian and Stuff Boston. Swears loudly and creatively, often as part of preshow warm-up routine. Plays the bass as if someone were going to take it away from him.
