Our AmericanSongbirds:

Kyrie Kristmanson (Vocal, guitar, trumpet)- she had often been called a 21st century troubadour.

Stephanie Nilles (Vocal, piano) – “jazz lady with a diploma in classical piano”. Unpretentious and bold, she  takes on the ills of the modern world.

Rachelle Garniez (Vocal, claviola, accordion, piano, guitar) – The New York Times described her songs as “romantic, rhapsodic and casually hilarious”.

Ashia & The Bison Rouge (Vocal, cello) – “combines folk, classical, klezmer, and all kinds of other music for a remarkable sound that defies easy categorization”.
