B.R. Lively

Eager to trade a rooted, restless life at home for new horizons, indie-folk songwriter B.R. Lively decided to hit the road in the summer of 2016…for good. Leaving town in a renovated 1991 Winnebago named Joanie, he began making his way across the country, playing shows during his nightly pit stops. Along the way, he finished writing songs for his first solo album, Into the Blue.

Released on October 6th, 2017, Into the Blue is a cinematic record rooted in folk music, Southern Gothic soul, and the therapeutic rush of the open road. There are sweeping string arrangements, folk anthems, Motown-inspired rhythms, Nick Drake-worthy acoustic guitars, and slow, stripped-down ballads. At the center of the mix is Lively himself: a self-taught singer and multi-instrumentalist who isn't afraid to shine a light on the lessons learned during his physical and spiritual journey.

No newcomer to the stage, Lively launched his career as a teenager in Dallas, Texas, cutting his teeth with a string of club gigs in Deep Ellum. Into the Blue finds him returning (briefly) to central Texas, where he recorded the album's 11 songs alongside producer Gordy Quist (the frontman of Texas' own Band of Heathens), longtime friend Thomas Avery (who wrote the album's lush string arrangements), and Band of Heathens members Scott Davis and Richard Millsap. The most electric, nuanced project of his career, Into the Blue turns Lively's experiences — both at home and on the road — into what he calls a "sonic journey of spirit." Released independently, Into the Blue marks a new chapter in a story that's still unfolding, offering up melodic plot twists, sympathetic characters, and a narrator who doubles as one of the folk scene's most promising up-and-comers.

RoAn Gibson

RoAn Gibson is the solo project and musical persona of San Francisco/Bay Area looper and singer-songwriter, Robert Andrew Gibson. Traveling through Psychedelia, Indie, and a dash of Blues, RoAn's music tows a line through loopy rhythms and soothing rhymes, using a mixture of bass, beatbox, rhythmic guitar playing, and dense vocal harmonies to create groovy recordings and mesmerizing live performances.

Debuting his first release, Getting Loopy, in Feb. 2017, RoAn Gibson jumped into the San Francisco music scene. The 5-song EP is meant to showcase the live looping set crafted by RoAn on his trusty Boss RC-300 at his abode in the quite Outer Richmond neighborhood of SF. Recorded almost entirely by RoAn Gibson in the bedroom of sound engineer Garret Peters, Getting Loopy is a deeply personal album full of repetitive meditations on the heartbreaking, difficult, and personal muck of this beautiful reality which we can all choose to blissfully share.
