Over the span of three critically acclaimed full length albums (2017's Asilomar, 2013's Fathom Lane and 2012's Down By Half) Fathom Lane has been getting international attention for their wonderfully indefinable sound. Michael Ferrier's songs are at once accessible and memorable, but are also sneaky with their quietly innovative touches. Ferrier cites classic touchstones such as The Velvet Underground, Tom Petty, Gram Parson's Cosmic American Music, and the Laurel Canyon songwriters, but even with these influences Fathom Lane manages a contemporary sound.
"On Fathom Lane's new album, Asilomar, it's clear that Ferrier's patience paid off. The album is one that's worth sitting quietly and listening to, with the songs taking listeners on a journey through a wide range of life experiences." 89.3 THE CURRENT
"It is their distinctive sound which most catches your attention. With songs ranging from biting to calm, yet never cloying, the combined vocals of Michael Ferrier and Ashleigh Still intersect, diverge, then unite again to alight somewhere transcendent." SEVEN MAGAZINE

Twin Cities’ band Ghost Wagon is a collaborative of similarly-minded musicians, led by singer/songwriter Chuck Nelson, creating earnest and often darkly emotional tales presented via accessible melodies and a come-join-us-on-the-front-porch vibe. Labels are tricky. Simply put, this is American Music. Ghost Wagon’s sounds flow from Americana to rock to country to pop to folk. The songs are adorned with multilayered instruments (fiddle, sax, pedal steel, accordion, guitars, ukulele, mandolin, keys) that arouse the emotions and get you thinking. Just listen to the songs – you’ll get it.
