Fearsome Folk.

"Heartland trio Joshua Powell and company is a storming folk-rock outfit bred for the tavern. Careful picking and vintage Appalachian instrumentation keep the Great Train Robbery full in sound and authentic in nature." - Willamette Week

Their self-produced debut EP, We All Say Hello, enjoyed immense exposure and success on Noise Trade in 2011, sharing the chart with acts like The Civil Wars and Young the Giant. They subsequently released their first full length, Traveler, which Stereo Subversion heralded as having “diverse harmonies” and “immense depth," and followed up in 2013 with their newest record, Man Is Born For Trouble, which No Depression called "lushly composed chamber-folk with its creator’s heartstrings unwound while portraying vivid snapshots of rustic romanticism...with no throwaway moments.

THE MANESS BROTHERS (primal blues from St. Louis)

"A Forceful Wall of Blues and Garage Rock" - Joseph Hess Riverfront Times

"Their form of sludgy blues rock pays homage to St. Louis and its aggressive bones found within. With one howling guitar and a set of drums the brothers dig deep into the grit of their souls pulling out every last ounce of feeling they have to project onto the crowd." - Vox

Ira Wolf is an independent folk singer/songwriter originally from Montana, currently based in Nashville, TN. She uses her melodies and lyrics to connect on an intimate and vulnerable level with her audience, and is inspired by each new experience her adventurous life has given her thus far.

After briefly studying at University of Montana in Missoula, and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Ira left school in pursuit of something bigger. She traveled the globe for a year, writing, recording, and learning about the world and herself. Shortly after, she took her journey south to Nashville in hopes of a new adventure where she could learn more about writing and the music business.

Since moving to town, Ira has spent much of her time collaborating with some of Nashville's top writers and musicians. She began touring in spring of 2014 and has continued connecting with audiences while performing across the country and even internationally.

Ira's debut album (Fickle Heart) and music video were released September 4th, 2014. The album is available on iTunes, BandCamp, Spotify, and all other major music sources.
