Zoe Muth and The Lost High Rollers

It may surprise Zoe Muth’s fans that the singer-songwriter of the critically acclaimed albums Starlight Hotel and Never Be Fooled Again hails from a Seattle suburb. Treading both soul and country, Muth’s “cosmic Americana” sound has been compared to such vintage country legends as Iris Dement and Patty Griffin. In 2010, she was named Modern Acoustic magazine’s “New Artist of the Year,” and has since exploded on the American music scene with honky-tonk and soulful 50s-style tunes that are as stirring for their instrumental richness as for the heart-wrenching stories they deliver.

Ariel Rubin & The Ballroom Thieves

While Ariel Rubin plays her ukulele and tenor guitar with a seriousness that is impressive, it is the strength and impact of her voice – which has been compared to that of Feist, Florench Welch, and Norah Jones – that resonates strongest with fans. Deeply rooted in the jazz, folk, and 1960s rock Rubin grew up on, her songs bring to mind the soaring arrangements and gritty no- nonsense lyrics of bands like Wilco and Bright Eyes.
