Malachi Graham & the All Hallows present noir-tinged alt-Americana inspired by complicated women. On Malachi's debut EP Selfish, she channels female voices that are intoxicating, self-sabotaging, mesmerizing, and not preoccupied with being liked. With forceful, nuanced electric guitar, percussion, and three-part harmonies led by her strong, unaffected voice, her band The All Hallows perfectly mirrors the honest and unapologetic heroines of her songs.
Sam Cooper is a man of many hats, not just literally, but musically too. The singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has over a decade of experience performing and recording as a front man, side man, yes man and middle man in numerous bands and projects, covering a wide range of styles and a whole lot of ground on tours large and small. Lately though, he's mostly been wearing the hat that fits him best: solo troubadour of the Americana Folk 'n' Roll persuasion. Drawing from a deep catalog of original songs and a broad repertoire of interpretations and covers, Cooper's live set spans from silly to serene, and everything in between. The sound is a blend of bluegrass, country, doo-wop, alt-pop, and more, with roots in classic rock and indie-folk. Though he enjoys occasionally playing with a revolving cast of musical friends as Sam Cooper & Company, it's as a solo performer that Cooper truly shines, his dynamic faux-hammer guitar work and baritone croon filling the sonic space as satisfyingly as a larger group. His well honed musicianship is paired with an engaging stage presence that transforms a nice evening of music into a night to remember.
Benny Gilbert is a powerful folk singer and fingerpicker. His voice ranges from honky-tonk growl to early-Dylanesque earnestness, and his songs will stick in your head and your heart.
