Her haunting lyrics and soulful voice. Their swampy rhythms and hook-filled melodies. A new chapter in Americana! Ladies and Gentlemen, HENRIETTA SWAN. We named the band in honor of, and inspired by a scientific hero: Henrietta Swan Leavitt (1868-1921) an American astronomer.

John Byrne BandFirst Single- Special Place In Hell  mp3
Watch new video for Special Place In Hell CLICK
New Video for "Hold That Against Me" Addresses Gay Rights in Ireland
Dublin native and Philadelphia resident, John Byrne leads his eponymously-named band. Their new record A Shiver in the Sky, recorded at Spice House Sound in Philadelphia and produced by long-time collaborator Andy Keenan, shows his band of multi-instrumentalists vibrantly executing ten new originals. Strings, horns, and guitars escort Byrne’s vocals through a set of songs about living and pushing forward through negative times. The album comes out today, and he released a new video for "Hold That Against Me". The song is about his brother's fight to be accepted as a gay man in the Ireland of the 90s, he wrote it after the Marriage Equality referendum there a couple of years ago in which same-sex marriage was overwhelmingly supported by the people of Ireland.
Watch the Video
Following up After the Wake (2011), Celtic Folk (2013) and The Immigrant and the Orphan(2015), A Shiver in the Sky focuses on triumph over trauma. Of this set of songs Byrne says, “Things will happen to you, and they can be immensely painful, but they will pass. And if you don’t let them break you there will be a new version of yourself that emerges and has learned the skills to live with this pain. There are cautionary tales, songs about dealing with addiction, about immigration, about relationships of all kinds, about facing prejudice, about leaving things behind. They all ultimately carry a similar message, that living carries with it the possibility of balancing out regret or mistakes that you’ve made with a future that contains something brighter. The Shiver in the Sky is the past, it’s the remnants of trauma, it never fully leaves us, but it fades with time."
With influences ranging from Tom Waits to Planxty, John’s songwriting honors and expands upon the musical and lyrical traditions of his native and adopted homes. Critics have called his writing “powerful, deeply moving work that will stay with you long after you have heard it” (Michael Tearson-Sing Out). Both as a solo/acoustic act, and a full 6-piece band, John logs in over 150 shows per year, building a loyal and devoted following. John spent 2017/18 recording and releasing an album of folk songs with his father John Sr. Released under the name John J.Byrne and the Twangmen, the album has been included in the National Folk Music Archives in Ireland.

Critical Acclaim:
Byrne’s songs are rich with the sounds and themes of Irish tradition, one that survives in a modern world… full of raw strength… puts me in mind of an Irish Alejandro Escovedo” Sing Out
“The Vibe of it (The Immigrant and the Orphan) is, at once, as rough as rock and as elegant as a calm ocean..each song on this album carries an honesty, integrity and quiet passion that will draw you into its world for years to come” No Depression
“One of the few musical artists today who truly manage to be traditional and modern at the same time.” Philadelphia Inquirer
“He’s good, period, with material that’s edgy yet accessible in a Luka Bloom meets Bob Dylan kind of way.” Philadelphia Daily News

Walt Cronin & The Gousters
First Single Way Back Home mp3
 
"Walt Cronin is an exceptional songwriter with a keen sense of history and a pertinent perspective. It’s a skill set that’s paid off well, making it little wonder that his four previous albums have secured placement on the Americana, folk, and crossover country charts. A singer who possesses a rich baritone -- think Johnny Cash sitting at the poker table with Nick Cave -- he gives his songs a gravitas that resonates with depth and meaning. Indeed, he now has a cause to which he can dedicate his energies and intents, that being Veterans for Peace, an organization that connects to his previous experience as a navy medic attached to a contingent of marines in Vietnam.".  Lee Zimmerman

PRODUCED BY BUDDY MILLER
2nd Single The Feeling of Empty  mp3
Jeremy Woodstock, Ariana Gillis (from the self-released The Maze)
Toronto singer-songwriter Ariana Gillis has just joined an extraordinary list of artists that includes Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Richard Thompson and Patty Griffin.  All have worked with producer Buddy Miller, who assisted Gillis on the newly released The Maze.
Gillis has an evocative voice, figuratively and literally.  Her voice balances fragility with confidence.  It is both soothing and ethereal, at times recalling a more subdued Ani DiFranco.  She wraps it around lyrics that are full of imagery yet have a layer of abstraction so as to encourage focused listening. 
“Rock It Like Fantastic” is a stirring ode to her mother, reflecting on the experience that comes with age while also revealing the singer’s fears and insecurities.  “Jeremy Woodstock” is a poignant fairytale conversation between a man dealing with indescribable tragedy and his own heart’s attempt to restore his spirit.
Said the heart to the man,
“I am not your enemy,
Let me fill you up, let me help you breathe.
Let me make your veins pulse, let me make your lungs rise,
Let me make your mind burst, put me back inside,
I will be your best friend; I won’t let bad happen, Please!”
Miller’s production is immaculate.  A bit of pedal steel here, some banjo there and even his own gentle harmony on “Dream Street”.  All are subtly layered around Gillis’ voice, acoustic guitar and songs.  The results are eloquent and magical.
“I have been a fan of Ariana Gillis since discovering her music on satellite radio…something rare and unseen – genuine, un-calculated, un-co-opted, art from a soulful gem.” 
– Grammy Award-winner, Buddy Miller

Rob "Splatt" Appelblatt- "Weathervane".wav
Rob aka “SPLATT” by his friends is a New Yorker living on Long Island. He picked up the guitar a bit later in life after college however, a demanding career in TV commercial production kept him way too busy to focus on music. In 2017 Rob attended Steve Earle’s week-long songwriting retreat “Camp Copperhead” in beautiful Big Indian, NY and shortly after found a newly fueled passion for songwriting and performing. Rob’s songs are a soulful blend of roots rock, country, folk, and blues known collectively as “Americana” music. Among others, he credits Bruce Springsteen, John Prine, Hank Williams, Guy Clarke + Steve Earle as his greatest influences. 
His debut album “Weathervane” was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee in the Spring of 2019 and is due to release on July 19 2019.

Music Review - `Weathervane` Rob "Splatt" Appelblatt (Dan MacIntosh)
"If you love early Steve Earle and Chris Knight, chances are good you’ll also appreciate Rob “Splatt” Appelblatt’s Weathervane. Appelblatt sings these ten songs with one of those unvarnished, country voices, and writes songs relatable for most average Americans."
