Dead Horses

At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos' world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses' stunning new album, My Mother the Moon, a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.

Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.

Described by NPR Music as "evocative, empathetic storytelling," My Mother the Moon earned a spot in No Depression's "Best Roots Music Albums of 2018" list, and Rolling Stone Country declared the Wisconsin-based duo an "Artist You Need to Know."

The Brother Brothers

Adam and David Moss are a folk duo unlike most others. With individual storied music careers under their belts, these identical twin brothers have finally teamed up to bring their experiences together. The result is the indie-folk sensation known as The Brother Brothers; a forging of Appalachian folk, and bluegrass traditions with contemporary aches and the nostalgic tenderness of another time. Their stunning songcraft blends masterfully gentle guitar, cello and five-string fiddle with the sublime sort of two-part harmonies only brothers can carry. Their critically acclaimed 2017 EP, Tugboats, which was dubbed "The closest thing you can find to Simon & Garfunkel in this century" (Saving Country Music) and their palpably fraternal stage presence have earned them repute among a modern folk scene. The Brother Brothers are currently in the midst of a 26-date nationwide tour supporting I'm With Her, and promoting their own debut full-length album, Some People I Know, out now on Compass Records.
