About Joe Holt:

Since graduating from Berklee College of Music in 2015, Joe has spent his time recording original music and touring, bringing his intricate fingerstyle guitar and intimate storytelling to new audiences across America. His new album “Tired of Trying” was heralded as “stirring, poignant songwriting” by Obscure Sound, and “the real deal in folk songwriting” by Ear to the Ground. With credits including opening for Steve Forbert and Parker Millsap, and playing legendary stages like The Bluebird Cafe (Nashville), The Whisky A Go Go (Los Angeles), and The Bitter End (NYC), Joe aims to validate NPR’s 2020 claim that “Joe Holt continues to use his first-person perspective for good.”

About Emily Anderson:

Like stumbling into a rose garden on a trek through the arctic, listeners of Emily Anderson’s music find themselves helplessly lifted into a world so hauntingly familiar, and yet so enchantingly curious. Alaska grown and LA based, Anderson has recently released a sophomore record, “Salt & Water”. Her single “Gold” was featured in a national Miller Lite campaign and a number of her works have been featured in video games (Calico, The Stars Between Us). Her music is akin to Regina Spektor ruminating over coffee with Phoebe Bridgers. “Salt & Water” is available for streaming and download everywhere you get your music.
