When you talk about what influenced Margo Valiante and her music, you need a road map and some extra time. With a voice that can stop a train, she's most often compared to Patty Griffin, Susan Tedeschi and Bonnie Raitt with a thread of Country stitched through. Raised in a small town in Wyoming, music and singing was a constant presence which she brought with her from DC to upstate New York and Austin before finally settling in Brooklyn. Her EP ‘I Can’t Pray’ helped Valiante notch Runner-Up accolades at both the Telluride Bluegrass Troubadour Competition and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest in 2010. Now, after a few years of the city under her belt, she’s uncovered a new tone and approach with a forthcoming EP, recorded at Transmitter Park Studios, co-produced by Abe Seiferth and Dave Burnett. Collaborating with great NYC musicians such as Jeff Hill and Jared Samuel, the outcome sends her in a new direction from her former recordings melding Country, Americana and Rock. You can find Margo Valiante fronting her band most Thursdays blowing the roof off of Skinny Dennis Bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Hayes Peebles seems to be well aware of songwriting's golden rule: the sad songs sound the sweetest. After a brush with notoriety, the native New Yorker spent his college years plucking out the beginning of the tunes that appear on his latest EP, Ghosts, a record that The Wild Honey Pie writes "captures the beauty of a lost cause, rendering memory and misery in bright, full tones" and "promises to announce a new voice in alt-country/americana.
