More than a decade touring the U.S., Heather Aubrey Lloyd has brought her lush, passionate voice to every type of venue, from folk festivals and bars to bait shops and clothing-optional resorts. A recovering reporter, her songs drift from journalistic to deeply personal, each narrative offered up in her distinctive alto and layered over finger-picked guitar. Her sets are rounded out with a few pieces on djembe, the instrument that earned her primal reputation as co-front for the Baltimore-based band ilyAIMY. She’s backed and supported Dar Williams, Ellis Paul, Shawn Mullins, performed as a 2012 Most-Wanted Artist at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and was a DC Lilith Fair Talent Search finalist. In Jan. 2015, she began work on her second solo CD, “A Message in the Mess,” a collaboration with Reno band, The Novelists.
“Lloyd’s voice has a powerful emotional and technical range, using everything from a delicate whisper to a bluesy growl to breathe life into the folk narratives.” ~ Michael Duck, The Morning Call
Kipyn Martin is an emerging Indie Folk artist whose roots sink deep into the banks of the Shenandoah River. She plays festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, and house concerts from New England to Texas. Accolades for Kipyn include multiple Gold Awards in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest (most recently for “God Is Love” from her 2017 album release, Dance Across the Sky), as well as the honor of Washington Area Music Association’s WAMMIE Award for New Artist of the Year. 2017 finds Kipyn touring to promote Dance Across the Sky, and traveling to perform Joan & Joni: A Tribute to the Music of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell with duo partner Allison Shapira.
Her voice is gathering a reputation, hailed by listeners as “an instrument of unrefined purity” ~ Tony S. (Leicester Bangs) and “the most pure voice I’ve ever heard” ~ Karin Fuller (The Charleston Gazette).
