Polish-Colombian Stash Wyslouch is an avant-garde bluegrass guitarist. Imagine the bastard child of Bill Monroe and Sun Ra. Stash’s music dances between wild originals and re-imaginations of bluegrass standards with a penchant for improvisation, story-telling, gospel and outer-space worthy composition. He’s released 3 albums of original music with his own group, The Stash Band, that’s been described by the Boston Herald as a “Sonic Kaleidoscopic of Weirdness and Wonder.”
“STASH and his band have really broken musical boundaries by doing things that just don't seem possible on acoustic instruments.” – Billy Strings
“A brilliant and free-thinking Mind” Chris Eldridge (The Punch Brothers)
“Heavy acoustic laced with musical cosmology” – Tony Trischka
When he’s not doing his own thing, Stash can be found playing with the likes of Bruce Molsky’s Mountain Drifters, the Jacob Jolliff Band and Tony Trischka.
Haunted by hooks and good old-fashioned songcraft, Brian Larney is an eclectic, non-stop music-making machine. The Connecticut native splits his time performing as a solo acoustic act and as the front-man of his band Brian Larney and The Town Hall. He's an alternative folk-rock singer-songwriter with an honest and thoughtful style that has been described as “quirky, earnest, and vulnerable.” Larney’s music is as influenced by pop songs of the mid-1960s as it is by the contemporary artists he’s often compared to, such as Jason Isbell and The Decemberists.
Larney grew up in the Northeast, obsessed with well-crafted songs and the art of vocal harmony. “I would get to school at 6:00 AM and sneak into the choir room just to pick out songs and work on harmonies,” he says. As a songwriter, Larney’s early efforts were “overly-complicated 7-minute opuses.” Through his varied tastes as a listener (which span pop to bluegrass) and tours as a gigging musician with power pop, post-punk, and Americana groups, Brian gradually essentialized his songwriting style.
Cutting edge AI company and music promotion team, Zenabi, probably describe the Larney sound best: "His songs are organic spoonfuls of classic pop and folk, naturally sweet, non-GMO, without the sugar crash; his style hearkens back to the days of Simon and Garfunkel, the Beatles, and maybe a bit of Partridge Family."
