Beth Anne Knight
“Rooted in folk Americana, traditional Irish music, and 90’s R&B, Beth creates both haunting and uplifting introspective melodies, inspired by all life has to offer her. Beth performs with powerful soaring vocals, accompanied by an often open-tuned acoustic guitar, or simply country chords. Having spent the last 6 years spearheading the folk-Americana family band, The Railflowers, Beth is now heading solo into the great big folk world. Inspired by artists like Patty Griffin, Joni Mitchell, and The Weepies, Beth is well on her way to becoming an important and honest voice in the folk music world.”
“Beth Anne’s music is a woven bundle of soul and melodic melodies, written with such poignance of the beauty and aching that exists in all of us. Each song twists and pounds out new parts for its listener with a poetic and gentle touch which leaves you wishing you stayed longer and wondering how one voice can capture so much in the smallness of her bones.”
Jody Mulgrew was born and raised in the small seaside town of Morro Bay, on the California Coast. He started his singing career in classical and vocal-jazz ensembles, before turning his creative energies to songwriting and solo and small-ensemble performance.
Back when Jody Mulgrew released his first full-length release “Aiming Too High”, under his project The Johnny Starlings, CD Baby was quick to feature the album, noting “there’s at least one song on this record for residents of every corner of the country: Slow bebop for folks from the glittering streets of New York, sunny pop for sun bathed Californians, cup of hot chocolate and blankets by the fire for snow-bound Minnesotans, and a teeny bit of twang for Texas.”
Mulgrew’s third and fourth studio albums, Rocket Ship and Let Them Talk were awarded “Best Album” at the 2011 and 2014 California New Times Music Awards, respectively, and a recent stint in Nashville, Tennessee provided the new material, musical growth and the recording sessions for the singer’s fifth album: As the Sun Reclaims the Sky, released in October of 2015. The lead single “On the Line” reveals Mulgrew’s americana roots as well as an optimism and spirit not heard since the artist’s earliest works.
His enchanting performances have won over fans around the country and his songs and recordings have received airplay on “The Acoustic Café”, Nashville’s “Lightning 100” and the infamous “KPIG” of Freedom, California to name a few, while his craft as a writer has been recognized by The Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in New York with an Award of Excellence.
