With influences ranging from prodigious guitar pickers such as Doc Watson, Leo Kotke, and Kelly Joe Phelps, to the more soulful folk poetry of  Elliott Smith, Gillian Welch, and Paul Simon, the music represent a unique synthesis of old-time picking and the indie here-and-now. Nathaniel Talbot combines masterful finger-style guitar work with thoughtful, melodic vocal lines to create a sonic experience that is truly fresh and impactful. 

With enveloping lyrical stories and a voice that elicits the ghosts of folk’s storied past, Talbot cuts through the throngs of the Pacific Northwest’s folk-pop hopefuls and stands high above in class unto himself.” – SSG MUSIC

Challenging what folk music is capable of…” – SEATTLE WEEKLY 

Lincoln Crockett: A young man with a knack for soothing harmonies and bluegrassy picking, his fluid themes and chords play to those private places only music can, where we are best expressed in melody and harmony. He has been hailed by the Oregonian as "a sterling mandolin picker, guitarist and compelling singer." Top-shelf but rarely plays out, so come see him.

Raised among the ferns and the farmland of Northern Washington, lyric-driven songwriter Anna Tivel loved words long before they became the backbone of her music. After moving to Oregon in 2007, she slowly discovered the friendly music scene as a fiddle player, and soon after picked up the guitar and began to write. Her latest album was released in June 2014 on Portland's well-loved Fluff and Gravy Records. Anna is based in Portland and spends her time reading and writing and touring and fiddling and watching her dog try to catch flies by the window.

These are organic songs that freely reveal the poetry of the mind, heart, and soul, the sharp imagery of the world translated into sound.
— No Depression
Anna’s strength is that of a lyricist. Her songs are filled with lines that intrigue and haunt.
