SONYA COTTON Labeled "The Frida Khalo of songwriting," Sonya's compositions are deeply personal, drawing upon her dreams, family, and love; they often come from a place of profound reverence for the natural world and the creatures of the earth. "Sonya Maria Cotton ... is a really damn fine singer." --Pitchfork sonyacotton.com
JASCHA VS. JASCHA
After using his dreams to spark a music career in Brooklyn, Jascha moved to San Francisco to record his first album. With hushed vocals and unexpected twists, his songs are vulnerable, clever and eccentric. Jascha will be joined by Daniel Fabricant, Dina Maccabee and special guests to celebrate the release of his album *A Cure For Sleep*—and the launch of an open-source songwriting blog.
KRIS GRUEN Born in New York City, Kris Gruen is a Vermont-based singer-songwriter. Often compared to Andrew Bird, The Arcade Fire, and The Decembrists, Part of It All, with the help of Mother West producers/engineers Charles Newman, JJ Beck and Rob Stevens, takes Gruenâ€™s songs and stories to an adventurous and fresh musical place. krisgruen.com
"Full Pink Moon: This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month's celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn." farmersalmanac.com/full-moon-names
