More on Josiah Johnson:
Josiah Johnson is singer-songwriter best known for his time as a founding member of folk-pop powerhouse The Head and the Heart. He has been making a name for himself as a passionate performer and writer since leaving his old band and beginning a solo career in 2018. Josiah writes with a deeply rooted vulnerability and presence, cultivated through a life of dreams, setbacks, and persistence, with the heart at the center.
He released his debut solo album, “Every Feeling on a Loop” in 2020, and a follow up is being released in 2022. His recorded output in 2022 is exciting and adventurous, mixing folk instrumentation with electronics, in the vein of Bon Iver or Sufjan Stevens. His live performances are cathartic, bringing emotive music and story-telling, with melodies that stick in your head for days after.

More on The Western Civilization:
The Western Civilization is an Indie Rock band from Austin, TX led by song writing duo Reggie O’Farrell and Rachel Hansbro. Chemistry is the key driving force of all great bands, and for The Western Civilization, that creative connection has inspired them to get past odds that would seem insurmountable to most. Reggie O’Farrell and Rachel Hasbro met while in different bands, and a strong friendship developed between the two. Their creative partnership would go on to produce two albums, multiple festival appearances including the Vans Warped Tour, SXSW and Halifax Pop Explosion and most importantly, a lasting artistic union that would survive the two living in separate cities.
The Western Civilization’s first album Letters of Resignation was aptly described by The Houston Chronicle as “Equal parts chaos and craft” and “noisy indie-pop that aches with longing, anger and frustration, each song spilling over with elegantly wrought emotion.” The forthcoming album Fractions of A Whole reveals a new maturity to their music with a more lush sounding production style and a focus on cohesive, graceful songcraft over the endearingly quirky elements that dominated their earlier work. At It’s core, the band has always been a collaborative project that they are the musical directors of and Fractions is no exception. It’s a rotating cast of characters/collaborators that orbit around them where the final sum always somehow seems to be more than the whole of It’s parts. The live band is currently rounded out by Fractions contributors Bob Lane and John Boyd.

Inspired by the parallels between gospel and garbage metal, Shepherd is embarking on a national tour equipped with storytelling chops and penchant for rock and roll glamour. Living in the city where both Pearl Jam and Quincy Jones cut their teeth, Shaina lends her soulful voice to projects of all genres. Her heart songs are steeped in American folk and redefine the Outlaw genre.

She has recently been featured in Nordstrom’s holiday campaign with her release of “Never Be Another You”, played a KEXP in session, and is excited to premiere her first body of work “dearly departed’ on the road as a celebration of life yet to live.
