Matt Pless-Combining elements of folk, punk, pop and roots rock, Matt Pless can lyrically turn a phrase with the best of them. He has been compared to some of the top songwriters of our time, including John Lennon, Paul Simon, John Prine and Bob Dylan. Known for his engaging, thought-provoking, witty, word labyrinths, his music spans topics from love and loss to social commentary, to ethereal train of thought abstractions and everything in between.
Shibby pictures-Shibby Pictures is the production company of filmmaker Jak Kerley. It’s the angry, confused style of filmmaking that no film festival is interested in hosting. Hidden in the relatable coming-of-age stories are messages of anti-capitalism, anti-racism, and gender equality
Troutmouth-Trout Mouth cannot be described in a range of genres–its roots are simply founded on those inescapable hours, after midnight, when the singer’s spirit demands to tell its story, unapologetically. Cramer’s voice is an ocean wave of steered grit; his guitar is a loyal sidekick; both, will result in you stomping your feet in the rhythm of a man’s bumpy life, (nearly evoking guilt from an audience member wanting Cramer to continue finding a rugged path, just so that we can continue tapping our feet to a soul-deep tune many of us are used to humming alone).
