ANAHITA is Helena Espvall (Espers) and Tara Burke (Fursaxa). Two elves dancing amidst gnarled branches of ancient trees and fragrant herbs, concocting a magical potion for the mind of floating medieval cello spheres and melancholic ceremonial madrigals under the blinking eye of a pale moon and far off constellations of shooting stars.
 
500mg is Michael Gibbons of Bardo Pond.The music of 500mg primarily features guitar, all facets. Electric vibrations, acoustic treatments, straight and experimental approaches. For Mr. Gibbons, his 500mg moniker is a metaphor for the power that music can conjure for a similar (if not higher) elevation of experience.
 
YUZO IWATA played guitar in the early days of the Japanese band Maher Shalal Hash Baz, and currently lives in Philadelphia. His album “Drowning in the Sky” was released on the Japanese Org label, and he has an upcoming solo album soon to be released.

“Born out of traditions old and forgotten, Dalnodar and McLeod play early string-band music, ragtime, breakdowns, waltzes and other recorded gems from the old 78’s, for the guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolin. Based out of Philadelphia, they’re releasing a tape this summer that includes a variety of the duo’s renditions; a selection of rags, Portuguese fiddle tunes, early Texas fiddle music, an original tune, and more.”
 
Sasha Hsuczyk is a local Philly crooner. She sings mountain ballads and hymns, plays various old instruments made of wood, and is working on inventing a time machine. Her influences include the original Carter Family, the original American chestnut tree, John Cage, Anne Briggs, Jean Ritchie, the Sacred Harp, Hazel Dickens, and Flannery O’Conner. Here in Pennsylvania she splits her time between West Philly and historic Berks County, but she hails originally from Los Angeles.”

Laura Baird is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and recording engineer. Since 2001 she has performed and recorded as The Baird Sisters with her sister, Meg Baird (Espers). In 2012 the duo released Until You Find Your Green (Grapefruit Record Club, 2012), which was recorded and engineered by Laura at Forest Hill Farm, her home recording studio. John Mulvey of Uncut has described their album as one of his personal favorites of 2012.

In addition to The Baird Sisters, Laura has also recorded with EspersDeath VesselAroah, and The Trouble with Sweeney. Laura plays a wide variety of instruments, including banjo, flute, piano, harpsichord, guitar, trombone, theremin, and fiddle. She enjoys crossing and blending genres like folk, pop, classical, and electronic, and frequently collaborates with other artists and musicians who work in and between these genres.

Laura is also an enthusiastic collector and performer of traditional Appalachian music, drawing inspiration from both contemporary and historical ballad singers and musicians, as well as her great-great uncle Isaac Garfield “I.G.” Greer’s early recordings for the Library of Congress’ Archive of American Song.

Laura recently recorded Glenn Jones’ album, My Garden State(Thrill Jockey.) She is currently working on a solo full-length folk album.

Bea Troxel, a Nashville native, started writing songs in the tenth grade, but she did not take her own music seriously until she was a year out of college in Central PA working a desk job. 

Music had always been a part of her life. In High School she played in a band called Bea, Rita, and Maeve (named “Best High School Band of 2013” by the Nashville Scene). The trio won Studio 360’s High School Battle of the Bands contest, and Thao Nguyen and Andrew W.K. covered Bea’s song, “The River,” as performed by Bea, Rita, and Maeve. Nguyen wrote of their music saying there was a “subtlety and refinement in the musicianship.” 

Troxel played all through her time at Sewanee in southern TN, but she did not begin to seek out shows until she moved to Pennsylvania where she found herself in the midst of the Northeast DIY music scene. She opened for musicians such as Glenn Jones, Laura Baird, and Sons of an Illustrious Father, and played her first tour through the Northeast in April 2017. She recently moved back to Nashville and is recording her first full length record.
