Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes 

Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes are celebrating their fifth year as New Jersey’s indie-folk powerhouse. 2016’sWelcoming the Flood gathered rave reviews and top-charting airplay which sparked a 7-state tour, culminating in a“Most Wanted” appearance at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. These “musical scamps” continue to develop their big, catchy, complex sound, adapting effortlessly from festival stages to listening rooms. Add Scott’s lyrical imagery and unconquerable voice to the mix, and as No Depression’s Lee Zimmerman writes, they “...will not only defy the norm, but all expectations as well.”

Meghan Cary with Analog Gypsies

Meghan Cary didn’t mean to be a musician. But when her fiancé unexpectedly died, she picked up his guitar, figured out how to play it, and wrote her debut, earning her Billboard Magazine’s Critic’s Choice for Best Newcomer. Known for her unabashed willingness to connect with her audience, Cary brings listeners to their feet and at times to tears with high-energy tunes, masterful storytelling, and deeply personal lyrics that resonate universally. Cary’s smoky voice, emotional singing, and vulnerable writing have garnered favorable comparisons to Natalie Merchant, Shawn Colvin, Indigo Girls, and even Bruce Springsteen. Forty-three states, and a whole lot of music making later, this “chick with a guitar” has evolved into the front woman for a power house band complete with lush vocal harmonies, keys, banjo, mandolin, bass and drums….oh, and, that guitar. In response to life’s inevitable curve balls, Cary’s mantra is: “If you don't know the words...Sing Louder!
