Born to a gardener & a journalist who would blast The Beatles,  Canned Heat, & Peter, Paul and Mary during car rides to-and-from their rural Massachusetts home, it’s fitting that Eliza Edens is a musician who takes an observational approach to the natural world around her. Combining the adventurous fingerpicking of The Tallest Man on Earth, the calm resolve of Laura Marling, and the aching pulse of Bon Iver, Eliza writes tightly wound songs with thoughtful, wistful lyrics and winding melodies that belong somewhere between your tumbledown front porch stoop and a hazy bar in the big city — and leave a little space to linger. She released her debut EP Lowlight in March 2017, and has shared stages with Glenn Echo, Milton, and Sarah Lee Guthrie. The Deli Magazine notes that the EP is “swept up in feathery, bright, buoyant instrumentation, with well-crafted songwriting/melody flourishes.”

 With Humbird, Joni Mitchell meets Mount Erie. Using folk music formulas but experimenting with boundaries through the use of looping pedals and guitar effects, Humbird has been called “Post-Americana” by Daytrotter, and Impose Magazine recently called the Where Else EP a “Stratospheric piece of work”. Humbird has been a featured artist on The Bluegrass Situation’s 3by3 and Blue Ridge’s “Trail Mix”, sharing stages with acts like Charlie Parr, The Cactus Blossoms and Haley Bonar.

John Cushing is a local trombonist, singer, composer, and curator of projects incorporating the art of John Cushing (Big) Band.
