Katie Dobbins draws from a music palette of contemporary folk and new country. With a mastery of storytelling and the heart of a poet, this soulful songstress captures elements of life and relationships in ways that lift spirits and challenge the soul. Featured in renown press outlets such as Boston Voyager and Limelight, her debut album She Is Free (released 2017) was described by The Deli Magazine as "a deeply personal record that is full of reflective poetry and messages of love . . . bringing to mind Jewel's Pieces of You." Throughout her record and live performances, Dobbins creates a warm inviting atmosphere that leaves her listeners longing for more.
Lucas Roy is a singer/songwriter from Portland, Maine. He has played with many internationally recognized artists, such as Chris Koza (US) , Poems for Jamiro (Germany) , and Town of Saints (Netherlands). His debut EP, titled “Too Far Gone”, has achieved many positive reviews.
In September of 2017, he performed in Melodica International Music Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland and was the closing act for Blueberry Days Festival in Isafordur, Iceland. He is going on his second tour down the East Coast of the United States in May of 2018.
Lindsey Sampson blends quiet morning folk with Southern stomp & holler for a sound with depth and energy. Hailing from New England, she draws from nature and folklore to create songs with soul and simplicity. When not playing solo, she plays in her band Visiting Wine, whose self-titled album was released last July.
Dean Harlem is an Americana, roots and country Singer/Songwriter based out of Epping, New Hampshire. His journey began in New Jersy, which he left after high school to hitchhike the U.S. chasing after the spirit of Woody Guthrie. He cut his teeth as a performer playing on the street in San Francisco for tips, sometimes playing for up to 8 hours a day. After spending the last winter in Austin, Texas, Dean is now back home in New England, playing shows and working on his first full band, full length album. His musical influences include Bruce Sprinsteen, Steve Earie, kris Kristofferson, John Prine and Townes Van Zandt.
