Sam Moss is a Boston based songwriter and string player. His work rambles through various offshoots of Americana, from original and interpreted folk songs, to pastoral and occasionally jagged instrumental guitar. His work has been featured in No Depression, Pitchfork, The FADER, Paste, and Daytrotter, among others.
“This fingerpicking guitar virtuoso characterizes the folk spirit in its finest sense.”- Paste
“Eerie and beautiful songwriting, ghostly banjo and guitar, Appalachian roots, and deeply softly enchantingly beautiful vocals… If you’re not paying attention to Sam Moss, then you’re missing something great happening.”- No Depression

J.R. Bohannon (Ancient Ocean)
J.R. Bohannon is a 6 and 12 string fingerstyle guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky, now residing in Brooklyn, NY. Rooted in the deep traditions of the American south, Bohannon has been honing his craft behind the scenes of his drone/ambient project, Ancient Ocean. No longer hiding behind pedals and synthesizers, his informative style is based in the tradition of American Primitive guitar but reaches out with nods to influences like Ry Cooder and Steve Cropper. Having opened for Pharoah Sanders, Steve Gunn, Ryley Walker, Jim White, and other luminaries in the short year-long existence of the project, the beginning tracks of a long trail ahead have been laid.
GABRIEL BIRNBAUM (Debo Band/Wilder Maker)
Gabriel Birnbaum is a multi-instrumentalist and composer living in Brooklyn, New York. He has performed on stage and on record with artists such as Sharon Van Etten, Rodriguez, Jens Lekman and Lady Lamb the Beekeeper at venues like Lincoln Center, the Bonnaroo Music Festival, the Kennedy Center, and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. He is a full time member of the Ethiopian pop ensemble Debo Band, and the cosmic Americana of Wilder Maker is the latest in a series of vessels for his own writing. In 2015 he launched Genius Loci, the first in a series of curatorial projects, and was selected as an artist in residence at both the ISLAND Hill House and Wildacres Retreat.
