Gracie And Rachel
Gracie And Rachel
Gracie and Rachel are a study in duality: light and dark, classical training with a pop sensibility, Californians in New York. Their music pits anxiety and tension against an almost serene self-assurance. The result is a compelling juxtaposition of Gracie’s piano and lead vocals and Rachel’s violin and voice, augmented with stark percussion.

Like their stylized color palette of black and white, their instrumentation appears simple and spare at first glance, but there’s a powerful prism effect at work that brings us back to the concept of duality: their songs are intimate and expansive, questioning and confident. The nine orchestral-pop songs on 'Gracie and Rachel' (out June 23) tell a story that’s rooted in the truth —their truth — but retain an enigmatic air that makes them relatable to anyone who has ever found their heart racing with doubt and pushed forward regardless.

“There’s a terrific tension in the sound, an underpinning of mystery set against a baroque, but modern, pop foreground.” –Bob Boilen/NPR Music
Gold Child
Gold Child
Gold Child is a Brooklyn-based psych-folk group fronted by singer/songwriter, Emily Fehler. Fehler moved to New York after finishing her studies at Berklee College of Music.
As Fehler began the process of coming up for air in Brooklyn, she developed an obsession with the music made by the great female troubadours of country music’s golden era — namely the work of luminary songstresses Patsy Cline and Emmylou Harris. Seduced by the raw emotion and timeless melodies of the classics, Fehler — a gifted vocalist herself — had found a new direction and sought to apply her own stamp to the form. With the addition of ethereal, shimmering atmospherics to her own folk songs, Fehler laid the groundwork for what would become Gold Child’s sound.

Rounded out by Jake Beal’s deft, understated drums and Turner Stough’s dynamic bass, Gold Child has drawn comparisons to Mazzy Star, Angel Olsen, and Neko Case.

Gold Child recently released their Sophomore single, “Me And You” and is currently working on the band’s debut full length, due out this fall.
