Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit: Take two Americana singer-songwriters, an indie-rock veteran of a drummer, country-born bassist, and metal-bred pedal steel player, and what do you get: the rough-hewn yet driftwood-smooth; rebel-headed, but heart-of-gold sound of The Good Luck Thrift Store Outfit. The outfit includes singer-songwriters Chris Doud and Willy Taylor, drummer Aaron Burtch, Taylor Webster on Bass and vocals, and multi-instrumentalists Matt Cordano and Chandler Pratt. Likened to anything from Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Bros. to Asleep at the Wheel, Bob Wills and even Neil Young (depending on which live set you happen to catch) they most often defy categorization, usually settling for some hybrid of Americana, folk, rock, bluegrass, and that sweet, old country & western.
Miss Lonely Hearts: It's a misnomer to say that the boys in Miss Lonely Hearts have their fingers on the pulse of the Nor Cal country music scene, rather, they've been its lifeblood since the release of their sophomore effort, “Crying Bottle Blues” in 2012. With their hard driving honky-tonk sound, MLH has packed bar rooms and dance halls all up and down the West Coast, and opened for nationally touring acts like The Devil Makes Three, Eileen Jewel, and Brothers Comatose. The infectious rhythms supplied by drummer Patrick O'Connor and bassist Mischa Gasch are complimented by an ensemble cast of lead players, including guitarist Sean Carscadden, fiddle player Josh Rabie (Water Tower Boys), and country hall of fame inductee Patti Maxine. Every song is set to an unavoidably danceable tempo and intended to drive a crowd to a fever pitch.
Paige Anderson and the Fearless Kin: Hailing from the hills of Grass Valley, California, Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin is a band consisting of siblings rich in sweet harmonies, tasteful songwriting, and a style all their own, ages ranging from 20 to 13. The siblings has been playing music since 2004, starting out with their family band, Anderson Family Bluegrass. The family band performed regionally and across the US at many well known festivals (Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Wintergrass, International Bluegrass Music Awards, and more). In 2012, Paige formed Paige Anderson & The Fearless Kin.
