Chris Pureka
Chris Pureka
Chris Pureka is a breath of fresh air in an age of fleeting success and temporary notions. She is an artist of substance, armed with a sharp eye for oft-missed details and an emotional intelligence that can switch from withering to compelling with a subtle inflection. On her third release, How I Learned To See In The Dark set to hit via Sad Rabbit Music /ADA on April 13, Pureka expands on her distinct and beautiful melodies exploring broader musical soundscapes all the while maintaining the stunning vocals and distinct guitar work she is known for.
Nicole Reynolds
Nicole Reynolds
Nicole Reynolds has just released her fourth full studio record, "a fine set of fools," after mostly being migrant for the past few years and working on farms. She credits the farming environment with easing her writing process. "Most of the time, I get stuck [while writing a song], and here I can just go do physical labor for a while when that happens," she says. "In the city, I was writing in my apartment, and it was a little more claustrophobic. I could go to a coffee shop or something, but I didn't have work I could be doing that was so different from music." There's an air of authenticity to what Reynolds writes and records, and perhaps it goes deeper than the fact that she's the rare young folkie who actually bales hay now and then.
