Gentle Temper ->
In 2016 Ryan Meier and Marion Earley split from their respective bands to embark on a new project, Gentle Temper. Self-described as the ocean folk duo, over the course of their formation they explored newer, more intimate musical territory and have woven a new cloak from a stripped, lyrically-driven thread. They find strength in their use of rhythm, swinging from calm to calamity like the tides they often allude to. Their live sound builds on a sturdy foundation of lyrical storytelling, animated harmonies, & a steady undercurrent of musical dynamic swells.
After nearly a year of sporadic trips to Red Bull Arts recording studio in 2017, Gentle Temper have realized their debut album, “Our Warm Red Light”. Released on October 7th, 2018, “Our Warm Red Light” tells the story of two people exercising the boundaries of their comfort and participating in the life of the other. Their story recites the journey of hardship and reward for a fledgling duo determined to grow.
Working from the belief that tradition is made to evolve, the women of Hawthorn chart a creative course through Appalachian and Celtic roots to the present-day. Heather Scott and Taylor Holland craft songs with “a weight that sits with you long after their audible presence fades” (Red Line Roots). “When they harmonize, the edges of their voices bleed together like watercolors on paper” (WBUR). With a powerful vocal blend surrounded in old-time banjo, seascape guitar, and dreamy electric lines, Hawthorn is quickly claiming a place in the music of New England and beyond. Their second full-length album, ‘Maggie Willow,’ is now available everywhere.
Dead Gowns ->
Dead Gowns is a newer project from Portland, Maine. After collecting ourselves in the winter of 2018, we released our first EP this past July. Pulling on folk, garage, and soft rock tendencies, it's music in the raw & tender.
