Peter Keller Ryan has been writing, recording, and performing under the moniker “Whales Whailing” for about ten years. This new band showcases songs with more personal, less cosmic subject matter. In a style influenced by folk, country, rock, and soul, Peter and his band deliver emotionally charged, heart-felt songs with honest, straight-forward, colorful lyrics. Fluctuating between deep baritone and breathy tenor, Peter’s voice delivers the resonant mood of each song.
Cave Cricket is the musical project of Kira Sassano. With an Indian drone instrument called a shruti box, vocals, a drum, a cymbal and a case of hand percussion instruments, Cave Cricket plays a blend of drone folk and percussion. Live performances feature encouraged interactive percussion from the audience. Cave Cricket explores music as a means for feminist strength and self care.
