Grammy-nominated songwriter Reed Foehl was raised in a small New England town whose folk/Americana music tells stories with a voice that pushes boundaries while paying homage to tradition.

Foehl released his sixth studio album – “Wild Wild Love” – in May 2022 which was recorded with The Band of Heathens. From traditional folk ballads to barroom sing-alongs, this tunesmith’s “emotional, deeply personal lyrics and indelibly infectious choruses…leave the listener with an overriding sense of optimism” (Glide Magazine) — something we could all use a little more of these days.

He was nominated for a Grammy Award for his song “Fly” co-written with Brent Cobb which was covered by country legend Lee Ann Womack.

With a life dedicated to songwriting and music, Foehl’s five studio albums have put him on the map of the publishing world, garnering placements in both film and television, most notably the feature film “Just Friends” and the popular vampire series “The Originals.”

Foehl now resides in the Green Mountains of Vermont and continues to tour across the globe.

“Reed has the ability to transport the soul, a true master. One of the great songwriters of our time.” –Gregory Alan Isakov

“Reed Foehl is like a brother to me, we’ve traveled a lot of miles on the road together, and I don’t think they make better singer-songwriters than him.” –Todd Snider

“Reed’s songs hit you in the heart, and everything else falls away.” –Anais Mitchell

“Hypnotizing Psych Folk… Kinda like John Prine from outer Space”

Travis Cyr has been a working artist in Maine for the past 23+ years.

Based out of his Northern Maine headquarters he has recorded and released 15 full length albums. His highly original songs are a gentle mix of cerebral, folk balladry and spacey, roots music. His lyrics are honest, vivid and always full of heart. He has been performing live since 2001 and has since played over 1,900 shows across Maine (and beyond). Travis tours solo and with his band ThunderHeart Lion. A visual artist who frequently sells his “Doodles” at his shows, he is also the founder of the Arootsakoostik Music Festival.

“An earnest storyteller with a gentle, nasal tenor, Cyr works in the mold of mid-career Dylan or Jackson Browne.” – Down East Magazine, Jan. 2022

“Travis Cyr has a gravity all his own, built on relentless playing across the state, a genuine and quiet charisma and kindness, and a string of nine heart-felt and elegantly executed albums.

Cyr is muscular and crisp with his fingerpicking and delivery. You can always make out every note, every word, and they’re worth listening to for their wit and connectivity.” – Sam Pfeifle Portland Phoenix Dec, 2019

“An intense acoustic firestorm.” – Emily Burnham – Bangor Daily News Nov. 2015
