About the Artists:
Elise Wunder is a Colorado born singer and musician blessed with a voice that distills emotion into song. With it she takes listeners on a journey through the passionate embrace of love and the hollow ache of solitude, while finding magic in the small moments of the everyday.
Shortly after the release in 2015, Elise was diagnosed with vocal nodules, requiring her to take a five month sabbatical from singing and performing. This marked the beginning of a long journey of deconstruction and humbling learning at the hand of the Muse herself. Her next adventure is leading her down to New Orleans where she is excited to absorb all the sites and sounds while continuing to learn. She now has a fresh breath to accompany a raw authenticity and life into her music medicine, which is her gift to you.
A powerhouse, whether performing solo with her guitar or with her backing group, Elise plays with an electric charisma that grabs those in attendance and draws them closer to the stage. Her expressive voice and face expose a heart worn proudly on her sleeve and given sound by her diving, soaring, luxuriant voice. She wins audiences with both feeling and fun, and has garnered new fans at every bar, club, venue and festival she’s played.
The release of her new EP, Desert Lonely, marks the beginning of a new chapter. The album pulls from influences of American classics along with world flavors and even a song en español. Desert Lonely showcases her talents as singer, guitarist and songwriter with a gift for adding just a little sugar to the bittersweet. Lead single “In Your Arms” channels the heat of Spanish summers and sultry serenades while challenging mundane affection with promises of the eternal. The other songs broaden her repertoire of sound, building on her previous recordings with and eclectic, urgent voice entirely her own. Elise continues to evolve as an artist and further refines what makes her special, and invites listeners to join her along the way.
jinnjinni is an American indie folk duo comprised of singer/songwriter Josh Martin (guitar) and Liz Gaylor (5-string violin). They met at a party in fall 2016 when Liz joined Josh for an impromptu hearthside performance. Sensing magic, Josh asked Liz to join him in his newly forming band (Mirror Fields, psychedelia pop 5-piece). The two soon saw a congruence in musical tastes and quickly fell into a musical writing relationship that took on a life of its own. An initial few songs written in the spring of 2017 demanded their own project and jinnjinni (named for the muse who possesses you, compels you to create) was born. The writing continued through the summer and fall, and the 8 tracks that comprise jinnjinni’s debut album were self recorded in their studio apartment over the winter (release April 4th, 2018).
