Marisa Anderson
Marisa Anderson
Combining boundless creative imagination with a deep reverence for American folk, blues and country music, MARISA ANDERSON's guitar playing is fluid, emotional, dexterous and original. Signal to Noise magazine calls Anderson's guitar work "Utterly fabulous", TIme Out London refers to her playing as "Stunning…haunting and evocative", Pitchfork calls her latest record, 'Mercury', "Brilliant" and Wire Magazine says, "Her sound has strength in restless variety…Anderson's playing is heartfelt and utterly American, free from grandstanding and steeped in respect for the old tradition." Before going solo in 2009, Anderson played guitar in the Dolly Ranchers and the Evolutionary Jass Band. In the past two years, Anderson's music has landed her festival appearances in Europe and the United States and opening slots for artists including Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Devil Makes 3 and Sharon Van Etten. In August 2013, KBOO Community Radio released a split 7″ featuring Anderson and Elizabeth Cotton. Anderson's music has been featured on NPR and on soundtracks including 'Smokin' Fish', 'For the Love of Dolly', 'Girls Rock', and 'Gift To Winter'. Her writings on music and activism have appeared in Bitch Magazine, Leaf Litter, and in Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls, the book. Her new album, "Traditional and Public Domain Songs," is now available from the Grapefruit Record Club.
Forest Veil
Forest Veil (formerly known as Moniker) is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist/producer Monica Metzler, based in Portland, OR. Following the echoes of her elusive muse, Forest Veil makes mystical "doom-folk" that maps the emotional terrain of humanity and its place in the cosmos.

Melding a voice that sounds like smokey quartz with psychedelic guitar riffs, and enigmatic lyricism, Forest Veil’s sound evokes a haunting nostalgia for other worlds and connects her in a web of resonating strings to the troubadours of time. Though she writes and records on her own, Forest Veil plays live shows with a full band (drums, bass, guitar, and keys/synth).
