The Accidentals
The Accidentals
Billboard’s Breakout Band at SXSW 2015, Huffington Post’s Sweet Sixteen of 2016, and Yahoo Music’s Top Ten Bands to Watch 2017..

Described by John Sinkevics of Local Spins as “genre-melding indie-folk,” The Accidentals (Sav Buist, Katie Larson, and Michael Dause) exhibit “a musical and lyrical sophistication that outstrips most mainstream bands.”

From 2012-2014, The Accidentals recorded three original albums, were guest artists on fifteen others, scored two films, and landed song placements in commercials, documentaries, and music compilations while playing over seven hundred live shows. THEN they graduated high school.

After graduation from world-renowned Interlochen Arts Academy, The Accidentals added multi-instrumentalist-singer-songwriter, Michael Dause, as their touring/studio drummer and opened for musical greats that include Andrew Bird, Sixto Rodriguez (Sugar Man), Brandi Carlile, Dar Williams, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Ben Sollee, Rusted Root, The Wailers, Keller Williams, Arlo Guthrie, Martin Sexton, and Joan Baez.

In 2015, they scored original pieces for a 72-piece orchestra, an opera-dance project with Son Lux, and a smaller 30-piece string ensemble, while touring the US extensively.

In June of 2016, they released a brand new, self-produced EP called Parking Lot, of which the single, “Michigan and Again,” went viral.

They’ve kicked off 2017 as major label artists, having signed a record deal with Sony Masterworks to release a full-length album in August.

Yahoo called it first – this is the band to watch.

“Stunning, an unforgettable experience watching these two girls play a sea of instruments (twelve to be exact), moving effortlessly from one to the other, while entertaining the masses with their wit, haunting harmonies, and catchy melodies, they are truly unforgettable.” – Grand Rapids Press

“In performance, they can rock. Their live act is frequently electric. The stage patter and presence is polished but real. They switch instruments before the song they have finished sinks in. A 45 minute set passes like a train. They already have more good originals than most hit acts, and their tastefully eccentric list of covers, well… covers the gamut. They pack performing space with a multi-generational mix any act would beg for.” – Jim Linderman, Grammy Award Winning Blogger and Author

“Musicality, originality, and melodic beauty combine with a welcome, and unexpected, bite to clever lyrics. Such talent, wit, and enthusiasm are hard to find anywhere. A duo giving an edge to folk with unique instrumentation is as close as I can come to describing them. A must hear! Songwriters need look no further to find a new pairing to be jealous of, especially with such a bright future ahead of them.” – Matt Mansfield, Z93 Radio
Dawn & Hawkes
Dawn & Hawkes
Miranda Dawn and Chris Hawkes met when he crossed an Austin barroom floor and asked her to dance. The first time they sang together they found a sound Texas Monthly calls "undeniably intimate".

Their initial duo effort, Golden Heart, climbed to No. 25 in Billboard’s Folk chart and landed at No. 2 in iTunes singer-songwriter albums and kicked off a whirlwind of constant cross-country touring and performances with artists like Patty Griffin, Dan Tyminski & Alison Krauss, Chris Issak, Old 97s, Robert Earl Keen, and showcases at festivals including Austin City Limits, Folk Alliance, AmericanaFest, South By Southwest and TEDx.

Their most recent album, Yours and Mine, is foremost a celebration of life’s beautiful moments that make us want to take another breath and another step – despite uncertainty.

"If you're searching and you find you're not so alone, Let's go there to find that silver line”
