ARRAH AND THE FERNS
Led by front woman Arrah Fisher, The Philadelphia based Arrah and the Ferns meld many sounds of folk, country, blues, indie-rock, and pop. Fisher's unique voice guides listeners into a world of emotion with a backdrop of various instrumentation such as dueling guitars, wurlitzer, and banjolin. Their sound is not easily defined as their direction has changed a number of times since their inception in 2005.
Chicago-based Exit Ghost has brought its inventive, rooted indie-folk to the stages of some of the Midwest's most prominent venues in the busy year since the group’s 2009 formation. Following a string of energized summer performances and a slew of intimate (if a little sweaty) club dates, Exit Ghost is gearing up for the release of its second EP with engineer Mike Hagler (Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Neko Case, Will Oldham) at Chicago’s infamous Kingsize Studio. Hailed by Performer Magazine as reminiscent of "After the Goldrush on steroids", Exit Ghost looks forward to a national tour in 2011, driving its trusty Mercury Villager into the ground with regional dates in the meantime.
Dark folk songs you might walk through the city or float on water to.
