Farewell Drifters

Young singer/songwriters are popping up across the country to join the burgeoning folk movement led by the likes of Sufjan Stevens and M. Ward, but what if two of those songwriters teamed up and led a progressive bluegrass band? You’d have the Farewell Drifters – part folk, part bluegrass – heavy on vocal harmony and intricate arrangements. Zach Bevill (guitar, lead vocals) and Joshua Britt (mandolin, vocals) write eclectic folk songs unbound by tradition, yet invariably influenced by it. Add the rest of the Drifters – Clayton Britt (lead guitar), Christian Sedelmyer (fiddle), and Dean Marold (upright bass) –and you have a delightful synthesis of folk pop and traditional string band music that appeals to a wide range of listeners.

Luminescent Orchestrii

Music to Make You Dance, Kiss and Scream

"The music makes your skin tingle and your eyes water, and never before have metallers, hippies and divas enjoyed the same gig so equally." -- The Skinny Magazine, UK

LUMINESCENT ORCHESTRII IS: Romanian gypsy melodies, punk frenzy, salty tangos, hard-rocking klezmer, haunting Balkan harmony, hip-hop beats and Appalachian fiddle, all eaten and spit out by two violins, resophonic guitar, bullhorn harmonica and bass.
