Casey Neill & The Norway Rats straddle the lines between somber Americana ballads, the intensity and ethos of punk, politically charged Irish folk tunes, and anthemic rock singalongs - but Neill's storytelling talent and concern for real people's struggles stand out. Based out of Portland, Oregon, their acclaimed latest album Subterrene is described as “dystopian romance” - where electronic elements weave in and out underneath razor sharp guitars. While not a traditional concept album, Subterrene follows a distinct story arc, and the ominous-yet-defiantly-optimistic portraits it paints were inspired in equal parts by vintage sci-fi novels, our current political climate, and the globetrotting manner in which Neill’s lived for the past few years. HIs records (and touring band) have a super-group reputation, including regular collaborators from R.E.M. , The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie, The Eels and more.

Loretta Lynch believes in having the right regrets. With lush three-part harmonies, raucous surf-tinged guitar and tongue in cheek, the East Bay Area’s own alt-country outfit Loretta Lynch’s stirring songs reach the shady grove in all of us. A little tear in your beer, a little knife in the back - think the Wailin’ Jennies’ crankier cousins at a warehouse hoedown. It’s Americana Noir. “Home Fires”, the band’s latest, critically acclaimed album, explores the decay of domestic life: loss and regret, bitterness and ambiguity, earthy humor, sweetness and occasional spasms of optimism.

Wayfairy started with a banjo on the turnpike and has grown into a Bay Area six piece music project that fills the sonic space between mournful folk and riotous punk. Originally the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Quiver Watts, Wayfairy has grown into a collective project that blends accordion, banjo, violin, washboard and upright bass with soft vocal harmonies, punctuated by raw wails.
