THE SEA THE SEA is an Upstate New York based indie folk-pop group featuring what Huffington Post calls, “Two of the loveliest male-female voices you might ever hear this or any other year.” Their 2014 debut release, Love We Are We Love, received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, and No Depression, among others, gathering over 15 million streams on Spotify. The animated video for their song "Waiting" sparked viral interest including Buzzfeed, Pitchfork, and inclusion at the international TED 2015 conference. Mountain Stage host Larry Groce calls them "ready to take their place among the best young male/female duos now performing." Their 2016 release, the six-song EP In the Altogether, recently earned features by Apple Music including Best of the Week and A-List Singer/Songwriter.
Minor Moon is the songwriting project of Sam Cantor, a musician based in Chicago, IL. Minor Moon’s soulful, intricate, “americana-esque” sound strikes a unique balance between a vintage and modern palate, mysterious and revelatory lyrics, and a contemplative and emphatic spirit.
Minor Moon’s latest effort is a 5 song EP titled What Our Enemies Know. Inspired in large part by the experience of moving from New England to the Midwest, Cantor’s
newest handful of songs explore the tension between being haunted by ghosts and enemies, both real and imagined, while
simultaneously affirming the lightness and love required to overcome these challenges. Across the EP, the tracks reverberate within and reflect upon one another, and Cantor’s songwriting demonstrates both discipline and experimentation; the performances captured during these recording sessions are at once raw and improvisational while existing within a meticulous approach to songcraft. In addition to Cantor on guitar and vocals, What Our Enemies Know features Nathan Bojko on drums, Michael Downing on bass and vocals, and Colin Drozdoff on keyboards.
