Longtime Chicagoan but Brooklyn resident, Rachel Ries crafts songs of loss, love, longing and the unavoidable tussle felt by a soul raised in the country but trying to find a sound life in the city. Currently working on an album in Chicago with David Vandervelde, Rachel and her band (Ari Bolles and the Bivins brothers) will try the new record on for you, in all its bombast & quiet.
Man Is Man
Man Is Man
This new project stems from Christa Meyer, formerly of Puerto Muerto, and includes Jacob Ross (Low Skies, The Warmbloods) on guitar, Jed Robertson (Light Pollution) on bass, Ben Kulp (Miami Symphony Orchestra) on Cello and Jason Creps (Low Skies, The Glorious Vapors) on drums.
Bone & Bell
Bone & Bell
Bone & Bell is part breath, part bellow. Led by Texas artist and musician Heather Smith, Bone & Bell combines haunting vocal harmonies and lush instrumentation to create a dissonant prayer: both heavenly and tension-filled.

Heather spent her childhood exploring the forests of Poetry, Texas, with a song on her lips and a dog on her trail. Over the years, Heather accumulated a series of instruments and with them wrote a series of songs. "Loom", Bone & Bell's first EP, is a sampling of baritone ukulele songs. "Organ Fantasies", Bone & Bell's second EP release (May 2012), is a collection of songs inspired by vintage organs gathered from alleyways, fleamarkets and secondhand stores.

Bone & Bell has evolved over time. What was once a solo effort has become a quintet. Heather recently joined forces with Ryan Farnham (drums- formerly of Catfish Haven), Rick Roberts (bass, keys) and Jason Tuller (guitar, bass).
