THE HARMED BROTHERS (Eugene, Oregon)
Americana/folk-rock/indiegrass, The Harmed Brothers create a sound both melodic and raucous, gutsy and vulnerable and are often compared to groups such as The Avett Brothers and the highly influential Uncle Tupelo. Anyone who's heard and/or seen them live can experience those dynamics alive well in both their high energy, string snapping, boot stomping live performances and heartfelt storytelling which equally showcase the songwriting.

THE VIVANTS (Bay Area)
Largely inspired by the energy of old-time dance tunes, honky-tonk country, western-swing, bluegrass, and Cajun music, The Vivants play their own brand of American roots music -- original foot stompin' tunes about riots, hollers, and hopping train cars.
The band is Emily Bonn (the Whoreshoes) on guitar and lead vocals, Jody Richardson (The Earl Brothers) on fiddle and vocal harmonies, James Touzel (The Earl Brothers) on upright bass, and Isaac Bonnell on accordion.
