A frequent performer at charity events, nightclubs, and festivals around Los Angeles, ANNETTE CONLON is no stranger to hardship or hard work. She toured the country from the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s with her Dallas-based alt-rock band Eden Automatic, opening shows for the likes of the B-52s, Duran Duran, Missing Persons and the Pretenders. But, when serious health issues forced Annette to face her own mortality, the transformation which followed resulted in a seismic artistic shift toward a rootsier sound, resulting in her most honest collection of personal musical storytelling.
The influences of Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris and Dolly Parton can be discerned in her solo debut, 2015’s Life, Death, and the Spaces Between, especially in the country-flavored melodies and lively instrumentation — accordion, banjo, cello, Dobro, guitars, mandolin, mellotron, pedal steel — arranged with guitarist/husband Doug Conlon and multi-instrumentalist/producer Ted Wulfers.
In September, the passionate animal rights advocate and vegan performs in Nashville during the annual Americana Music Association conference, and then launches her "Compassionette Tour", which winds through Alabama and North Carolina before landing at Chicago Veganmania’s “compassionate culture” celebration. It’s a fitting wrap for a tour — and artist — committed to “spreading awareness through music, fashion, food, and love.”
Singer-songwriter B. SNIPES was raised in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, where his unique soulful voice and powerful songwriting began to take shape. Drawing upon a range of influences from folk to indie rock, his music feels at once nostalgic and new. His haunting and emotionally-rich debut EP Away Away walks the road from heartache to healing. His debut full-length record American Dreamer is due out in Summer 2016.
