Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band
Lost Dog Street Band was created in the winter of 2010 after a long and bitterly cold trek on foot to Tennessee. Splitting paths from their former project Barefoot Surrender, Benjamin Tod and Ashley Mae set out to craft their own original music as a duet. Drawing on inspiration of hard times on the road, personal tragedy, the power of love (and of course their dog) Benjamin continued on with a long legacy of songwriting that cuts to the quick. Knitting together musical influences from traditional country, old time, and blues Ashley Mae and Benjamin began to refine what is their original take on American storytelling songs. With their packs, fiddle, guitar, banjo, and pup they set out on foot traveling coast to coast by hopping freight, and hitchhiking with the vision of sharing their music. Along the way, they met many inspirational musicians. Amongst them was Nicholas and Shannon Ridout with whom they formed the project Spit Shine in the year 2012. After the tragic loss of their dear friend Nicholas, Lost Dog Street Band hit the road in search of solice and a deep seated need to continue sharing music as a source of comfort. Today, Benjamin and Ashley have made a home in the country side of Tennessee, working the land and carrying on their lives as full-time musicians. As they tour regularly, perhaps you will see them roaming across the country in their van with their dog Copper.
Intuitive Compass
Intuitive Compass is the diverse talents of song writer and guitar pioneer, Jason Dea West taken together with old time circus freak and accordionist Aurelia Anne Cohen. Purveyors of “Original Western Folk Music” they offer a timeless sound, invoking a musical America of the past with out ever sounding dated. Their provocative lines and dynamic arrangements include elements of country blues, old-time, vintage swing,jazz, frontier balladry, instrimentals and the perpetuation of traditional folk songs.

They sing of travel, freedom, corruption, love, liberation and personal experiences. Formed in 2011 they hail from the remote wild lands of Southern Oregon. Over the years they have toured extensively, covering the lower 48 coast to coast, much of New Brunswick and Alaska. Presenting in major cities and Backwood mountain towns alike, from taverns to theaters, coffee houses to barn dances, street corners to festivals always with the essence of the nomadic soul. Their live show frequently includes some genuinely eye catching theatrics, contortion, fire, aerial acrobatics and dance numbers. Often managing 200 shows a year they have had the honor of sharing the stage with manny esteemed acts including Lost Dog Street Band,Hot Damn Scandal, The Super Saturated Sugar Strings, Lucas Hicks, Vince Herman, The Crux and countless others. Off the road they spend time with wild folk who live free with no compromises (blacksmiths, fur trappers, cowboys, vaudevillians, buskers, farmers, medicine men & women and other troubadours).

From someplace else, yet quite firmly here and now get yer mind a wonderin’, spirit a -wanderin’and feet a movin’…
