Hailed by longtime Star Tribune music critic Jon Bream as “the state’s best pure country singer/songwriter,” Erik Koskinen authentically champions twangy honky-tonk sounds while delivering a wry, reverent, and articulate lyrical landscape of knowing, blue collar personal & social struggles.

Molly Maher is a gifted guitarist with a raw, sultry Americana sound and an irrepressible spirit. The seasoned St. Paul-based singer and songwriter has crafted a modest but impressive back catalog of soulful, countrified folk music while entertaining live audiences in Minnesota and beyond for well over a decade.
