Jess Klein Biography

Sprung from the Boston folk music scene circa 1995 Jess Kleins new release Strawberry Lover (Rykodisc) , finds the singer-songwriter drawing inspiration from both the outlook and the music of her childhood. Prior to her last release, the critically acclaimed Draw Them Near (produced by Rykodisc president George Howard, and featuring Wilco drummer Ken Coomer), Jess recorded three independent albums and toured the US, UK and Japan with the likes of 10,000 Maniacs, Jill Sobule, and Luka Bloom.

The new album contains clear Motown and R&B influenced tracks like Office Girl and Shonalee and ranges from soul and rock to the sultry, reggae-inspired Soda Water. Klein has consciously strayed from her folksy roots to explore the kind of exuberant musical genres that got her singing in the first place.


Alana Levandoski Biography

Canadian Alana Levandoskis debut album Unsettled Down co-produced with Winnipeg-based producer/engineer Norm Dugas was completed in late 2004. It was released July, 2005 on Rounder Records.

Sparkling with instrumental and production dexterity, the album reflects the musical heritage of country, gospel and folk that Alana has been familiar with from a very early age. The tracks never seem cluttered. Each seems spare, put together with hands that knew when and where to leave things out. Theres also the magnificence of Alanas voice with its crystal clarity.

After hearing Red Headed Girl Toronto critic John Sakamoto wrote that Blessed with a short-story writers eye for the telling detail, this Winnipeg singer/songwriter recalls Nanci Griffith circa Once In A Very Blue Moon: clear-eyed, wary of sentimentality and sounding like shed be perfectly comfortable hanging out with Emmylou Harris
