Erisy Watt
Erisy Watt
Erisy Watt is a Nashville-raised folk artist based in Portland, OR. Consistently referred to as “the next-in-line to the likes of Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, her music is an exercise in what contemporary folk today sounds like at its peak.” (NO DEPRESSION)

Over the last few years, she has shared the stage with acclaimed artists John Craigie, Hurray for the Riff Raff, L.A. Salami, Mr. Little Jeans, Shook Twins, Kuinka, Dustbowl Revival, Marty O’Reilly, Royal Jelly Jive, T Sisters and Rainbow Girls. Following the release of the first single off her debut record, Watt, alongside guitarist Jeremy Ferrara, wrapped up 2018 with a six-week long tour all across Europe. The full album, produced by Bart Budwig and recorded live at The Ok Theatre in Enterprise, Oregon is set to be released on July 26, 2019.

In addition to writing and touring, Watt spends part of her year helping lead environmental field studies programs for university students in remote regions of Thailand, Indonesia, and Nepal. Her time in this part of the world engaging with the native ecology and culture has profoundly impacted and influenced her songwriting. A lot of her lyrics and ideas for songs come from phenomena in the natural world that she witnesses and engages with directly.

Watt's music and songwriting find solace at this intersection of art and science. Weaving the stories of the natural world into her own work, Watt hopes to continue to celebrate and shed light on the beauty of existence. Her live performance bursts with charm as she invites listeners to revel in the joys and freedom of wilder places with every sound, song, and story.
Emily Wryn
Emily Wryn
Emily Wryn is a Santa Barbara County native who has been writing and performing since the tender age of 13. Her early demos were played on Nic Harcourt’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, and in 2018 Emily's song “Quiet” was selected by Marissa Lorusso of NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest as one of her early favorites. She wrote: “Emily Wryn sings with a poignant weariness that evokes Sharon Van Etten or Angel Olsen. Her [song] “Quiet,” recognizes the power old wounds can hold over us, and the bravery it takes to move past them.”
Jeremy Ferrara
Jeremy Ferrara
Jeremy Ferrara is a folk artist based in Portland, OR. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Conor Oberst and Neil Young, Ferrara's honest lyrics are brought to life with the subtlety and charm of his guitar playing. Having played in bands since he was 12, Jeremy found his voice as a solo artist in the DIY scene of Santa Barbara, CA. His songs are rich with vulnerability, intimacy, and a style that doesn’t hold back.

With three solo EPs released in the past 2 years, Ferrara's debut full length album is set to be out in the summer of 2019. The new album, recorded and produced by Bart Budwig at the OK Theatre in Enterprise, OR, will feature a full band and a much more expansive sound.
