With a quarter of a million streams on Spotify, sold out shows with Mt. Joy, Susto and Birdtalker in 2018 and 100+ other performances under their belt, Whitacre is a group blurring the lines of folk, indie rock and bluegrass music. Their brand of folk-rock combines thought-provoking lyrics and high-energy live performances that led to tours with Family and Friends, Wilderado and Wild Rivers. Whitacre recently partnered with producer, Joe Richmond (of Tennis, Churchill) on a 5 song EP ‘Within The Mountains’ Shadows’ that was released at a sold out headline show in Denver, Colorado.
Singer-songwriter Emma Guzman, known cat enthusiast, rumored Starchild and compelled by unknown forces, has always felt the need to express herself through music. Choosing to spend her time humming melodies and frantically scribbling lyrics in various notebooks and on random scraps of paper, she has quietly amassed a substantial collection of songs. Described by the Detroit Metro Times as a “song writing prodigy” and listed in 2016 as one of their top 15 artists to watch, Emma has since released her second album and recieved the TIDAL Unplugged grant. She is currently recording new music to be released soon on TIDAL.
