One of the most observant and wry songwriters of the past two decades
Slaid Cleaves: The characters in Slaid Cleaves’s songs live in unglamorous reality. They work dead-end jobs, they run out of money, they grow old, they hold on to each other (or not), and they die. With an eye for the beauty in everyday life, he tells their stories, bringing a bit of empathy to their uncaring world. The New York Daily News called his music “a treasure hidden in plain sight,” while the Austin Chronicle declared, “There are few contemporaries that compare. He’s become a master craftsman on the order of Guy Clark and John Prine.”
Robbie Fulks: Robbie Fulks is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His early solo work—Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997)—helped define the “alternative country” movement of the 1990s. His music from the last several years hews mainly to acoustic instrumentation; it returns him in part to his earlier bluegrass days, and extends the boundaries of that tradition with old-time rambles and sparely orchestrated reflections on love, the slings of time, and the troubles of common people. His 2017 release, Upland Stories, earned year’s-best recognition from NPR and Rolling Stone, as well as Grammy nominations for folk album and American roots song (“Alabama At Night”).
