The Young Fables
The Young Fables (TYF) are a promising country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. The act hails from Maryville, TN and has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize at the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium stage at age 16.
“What makes the homey Ozark stew of Handmade Moments so very nourishing, so perfectly spiced? Partake and be effortlessly guided through wistful and deep channels of musical flavor, rich with hearty roots and fungi, vegetables home-gardened and watered from the sacred well of American musics: jazz old-time country blues soul hip-hop rock (and it don’t stop). Glistening with insight and whimsy, long-simmering with righteous compassion and beauty, Handmade Moments are a fearless all-weather duo – complementary spirits of musical tightrope and magic – serving up entrée to their secret river of goodness.” – Matthew Souzis
Complicated Animals’ Monica da Silva and Chad Alger have been collaborating in music and in life, since meeting in Chicago in 2007. They released the album “Brasilissima” in 2010, under da Silva’s name. Having lived in both the United States and Brazil, da Silva combined her two cultures into her writing, melding Indie Pop and Bossa Nova together to form a new genre, one she coined Indie Nova. Featuring songs in English and Portuguese, the album was co-produced by Chad Alger, and Bruce Driscoll (Freedom Fry). In 2015, da Silva and Alger debuted as Complicated Animals, with the release of their 6-song EP “In This Game”. Written and recorded in a cabin in the woods in Michigan, “In This Game” received rave reviews from blogs and journalists, and was called “a 6 song masterpiece” and the “beginning of a new sound” by PopMatters.
Complicated Animals have performed on TED, and shared stages with the likes of Jenny O, Reeve Carney, Gaelynn Lea, The Oh Hellos, Rodrigo Amarante, and Emmylou Harris. Based in Los Angeles, California, the duo regularly tour the country to perform. Their latest single ‘Show Me’ (2018) was just featured on MTV Brazil, and Obscure Sound.
