“…spectral folk-pop atmospherics created and dreamy lead guitar melodies.” Native Harrow is the renaissance woman of song…recommended if you like the music of late 60s Laurel Canyon (Joni Mitchell, CSN&Y), Nick Drake’s somber beauty, the contemporary folk of Laura Marling. Influences as diverse as 60s art rock, Hindustani classical music, English folk, New York avant-garde jazz, 60s jazz pop, and 80s indie rock show up in her sound.
The Ladles are an amalgamation of their respective histories and influences, blending Swing, Old-Time, Neo-Soul, and Choral music into rich harmonics. They quiet noisy bars and liven up staid concert halls. Using solely acoustic instrumentation and three incredible voices, they create master harmonies akin to The Roches.
