Charlie Marie
Providence, Rhode Island may not be the first city you think of when imagining where a country singer grew up, but Charlie Marie is here to prove that “everywhere has a country side.”

Charlie Marie, like so many songwriters, was first introduced to country music by her grandmother. At the age of ten years old she was already hooked on Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn. Her admiration for their artistry has only grown stronger since and shines through in her own repertoire. With vocals that are reminiscent of “The Queen of Country Rock”, Linda Ronstadt, and current influences like genre breaking Margo Price, Charlie is bringing the trailblazers country music together with a modern day flair.

Charlie may have cut her song-writing teeth while living in Nashville for a few years, but it wasn’t until Charlie moved back home to Rhode Island in 2016 that she truly found her strength in her live performances. After becoming a staple at venues around her hometown, Charlie took to the road this past July for a two week tour that lead to a chance to record an album in a unique setting. An Airbnb unit where she and her lead guitar player were staying in Charleston, South Carolina doubled as the birth place of her new recordings. “The most important thing to me is that my fans are able to listen to my songs,” she says. “This live album allows them to do that in a raw un-produced way. I know that this isn’t how my songs will sound once they’re all grown up and find their wings in a studio setting with studio musicians, but their growth is something I want my fans to experience with me.”

The Wolff Sisters
Gritty and raw folk-rock outfit The Wolff Sisters & The Last Cavalry first broke into the Boston music scene as an acoustic trio. With haunting harmonies and songs reminiscent of washed up wanderers on New England’s salty coasts, Rebecca, Rachael, and Kat stole Boston’s heart as The Wolff Sisters (yes, they’re really sisters). Born to a poet and a musician, they grew up on the heavy realism of Dylan and Springsteen blended with the loose and loud Rolling Stones. Drawing inspiration from blues giants like Howlin’ Wolf and modern storytellers Dawes, The Wolff Sisters don’t fit into one genre of music. With Rebecca on acoustic guitar, Rachael on electric guitar, Kat on keys, and all three on vocals, the sisters spent years honing their sound together in an old victorian house just outside Boston.

In 2015, the trio amplified their performance with the addition of The Last Cavalry. With Will Rodriguez on drums, and Jackson Mann on bass, the band seeks to bring that loose blues, roots, and rock n’ roll sound back into the forefront of the music scene.

Their second album ‘Cahoon Hollow’, was recorded at Dirt Floor Studios in Chester, CT and produced by Eric Michael Lichter.
