Each year, Easyfolk selects a number of independent artists to feature. These artists will form a close community of support for one another and build off of each other's momentum. Throughout the year, easyfolk will provide each artist
with community building and performance opportunities.

Karyn Ann

Introspective singer-songwriter Karyn Ann writes excavations - songs that carve meaning out of memory, upend harm into healing, and loose rotting roots into unapologetic new growth. With a voice that’s equal parts church bell and bourbon barrel and a gut-punching grit reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt or Grace Potter, Karyn Ann sings both revenge and redemption, winding her way with unflinching honesty through the stories that define us and leaving no stone unturned.

Peter Romanelli

If people were places, Peter Romanelli would be a front porch. Unvarnished, rooted, and intentional, with a voice like a rocking chair cradled by the chipped paint timelessness of bluegrass guitar. Peter’s songs feel like homesteads - familiar, lively, a little achy, with an open invitation for you to stay and sit awhile. This is foot stompin’, deep thinkin’ music. The kind that spans generations, defines seasons, and only gets better with time.

Wren The Band

Call it carbonated jazz, rooted pop, or caffeinated folk, Wren the Band delivers a hot air balloon ride of soul-healing musical dopamine. With echoes of vintage R&B and a playful disrespect for convention, they’re a little Amy Winehouse and a little Corrine Bailey Rae. But don’t mistake their groovy effervescence for superficiality - this is joy that understands and honors sorrow. Wren the Band’s songs are full up with the kind of hope that can clear the clouds off your heartache without ever letting go of your hand.

Story
& Tune

The close harmony of ethereal folk duo Story & Tune mirrors the tightrope edges of trauma they write about - haunting, precarious, and determined to heal. Earnest with cinematic storytelling, a soar-and-tumble dynamic range reminiscent of the Civil Wars, and subtly Celtic melodies, Story & Tune’s songs demand that you lean forward and listen, confront your ghosts, set solid boundaries, and celebrate your hardest goodbyes.

Flyover States

Every true traveler is always in search of the best kept secret. Folk trio Flyover States has it tucked in the three-part rise and fall of their atmospheric harmony, their hindsight wisdom lyrics, and the dynamic pulse of tradition alive in their melodies. With Simon & Garfunkel-esque tonal precision and Nickel Creek’s undeniable warmth, their songs might summon the welcome glow of a cozy pub tucked away off a cobblestone road or inspire a gentle soundtrack for a long walk in the woods. Wherever you wander, Flyover States will most certainly be a soft place you’ll never be sorry to land.
