Cuchulain (pronounced "ka-HOO-lin") is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. The name (yes, his real, legal name, shared a character in Irish mythology) says as much about him as it does his music: unique, creative, lyrical, and story-driven. Cuchulain's tongue-in-cheek wit and activist spirit emerge from his carefully crafted lyrics, drawing comparisons to artists like John Prine, Randy Newman, and Johnny Cash. His self-titled debut album, released in 2017, has been most appreciated for its entrancing story-telling and rich and often surprising compositions, with more instruments than you can count, most of them played by Cuchulain himself. Cuchulain is rapidly developing a cross-country following, with experiences living and performing in places as disparate as Washington, DC, and San Francisco, California. His bass-baritone melodies will capture the attention of any listening room and leave them laughing and crying the whole way home.
On the river and on the road, Jenner is a folk singer with music that ranges from a soft mandolin melody to full-blown guitar strumming that has strings on the edge of breaking. He draws his influence from river canyons, urban communities, John Prine, Josh Ritter, and the people, roads, and stories in between. His lyrics will make you laugh one moment and wipe away tears the next. His CD will live in your player long after you hear him, and will take you right back to the emotions that his talents, voice, and personality crafted. Ask anyone who has been around Jenner - myself included, and they'll echo a lyric from my favorite Jenner Fox original song, "Lullaby " - simply put, there will never be enough time with him.
