The Sea The Sea
THE SEA THE SEA is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop group featuring what Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song "Waiting" sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Mountain Stage host Larry Groce calls them "ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing." Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, recently earned features by Apple Music including Best of the Week and A-List Singer/Songwriter.

Minor Moon
Dread-laced and hopeful, meticulous and ecstatic - the music of Chicago based Minor Moon traffics in opposing forces in service of reflecting the kind lightness that can bear the tension of one's own contradictions. With a palette that leans heavily on folk rock and alt-country styles and instrumentation, bandleader and songwriter Sam Cantor wrestles together something altogether different, with songs that slip through the hold of well-worn definitions and expectations.

Minor Moon's latest release, the single It's Okay, outlines a thoroughly modern and curiously self-conscious trip to the grocery store - replete with delusions of cinematic grandeur and zonked out screen time - all cloaked in a sleepy, rainy day almost-retro rock vibe. The band's previous EP, What Our Enemies Know, has been described as "Pink Floydian," "like a sinister Cat Stevens" and "reminiscent of Procol Harum or The Band working their way through a set of Lambchop covers." Minor Moon plans to release their second full length album in early 2019.
