Lauren Calve Band
Virginia native Lauren Calve is a Washington, D.C. area singer-songwriter, guitar and lap steel player who has brought a vital new energy to the Americana scene. Starting with her days attending the open mic nights at the well-loved, but now defunct Arlington, VA live music haven Iota Club and Cafe, Calve became known for her strong, soulful vocal style and skillful playing. Seeing her perform, one thinks of Patty Griffin’s dynamic voice, Bonnie Raitt’s smoky aura, and Ben Harper’s unique slide style. She released her debut EP, Between the Creek and the Tracks, in 2014, for which she earned a Washington Area Music Association nomination for Best Roots Rock Vocalist. Her most recent album, released in 2018, is Light Dark.
Stranger in the Alps
Mary-Elaine Jenkins is a 13th-generation South Carolinian now residing in Brooklyn, with a few places in between. A captivating songstress and guitar player, her voice has been described as "a mix of cloves, sage, ash, thorns, and honey" (The Deli NYC) "standing righteously above other young pretenders" (Glide Magazine). Her upcoming debut album, Hold Still, will be released on September 28 via Good Child Music.
