After driving almost every US highway, and playing over 2,000 shows worldwide, Kiernan has unusual stories to tell. Over the past 11 years, he has shared the stage with Ed Sheeran, Mat Kearney, Dave Mason, John Butler Trio, and many more. The songwriter averaged 200 shows per year, and performed at sold out shows across the country, but not without notice. He's captured a worldwide grassroots following, 3 critically acclaimed SXSW appearances, and was most recently named one of Alternative Press Magazine's “12 Bands You Need To Know” for 2016.

Wrapped in a shroud of fabled stories, forgotten characters, and haunted landscapes; Faux Fawn has emerged from their winter slumber with melodies not yet lost to the bitter frost. Upon releasing his debut album February Fables in 2011, frontman Paul Otteson garnered immediate recognition as a thoughtful storyteller and prolific songwriter. Four albums later, now with band in tow; his group has established itself as a mainstay in the Madison music scene.

Their upcoming album Lonesome Loon will be released December 6th. Admittedly darker and more reflective; this collection of songs takes the listener through a starless night, led only by the warm glow of Otteson and his band. Though slower paced than previous efforts, Lonesome Loon takes thoughtful steps drenched in lush harmonies and foreboding instrumentation.

The formation of Faux Fawn came in the spring of 2014, though it’s members have shared their brilliance from the very beginning. Luke Bassuener lends complex and unconventional wizardry on the drums; Tom McCarty is steadfast in his foundation on upright bass; Jeremiah Nelson renders layered waves and jazz voicings that create moments of beauty and sonic wonder on electric guitar, and Audre Krull warms the coolest breeze with her soaring voice. The result is a group dynamic filled with spontaneity and well-developed arrangements.

Brandon Beebe
Madison, Wisconsin’s Brandon Beebe is a uniquely evocative singer/songwriter whose talents have brought him to festivals like South by Southwest and allowed him to share the stage with renowned artists including Darius Rucker, Meshell Ndegeocello, Tennis, Kandace Springs, Valerie June, Zoe Keating, PHOX, Dessa, and many more. At a time when music can be emotionally veiled and detached, Beebe connects with audiences with lyrical sincerity and rich, soulful vocals reminiscent of Cat Stevens, Elliott Smith, and Ray Lamontagne. At the same time, Beebe brings audiences to their feet, dancing to such stirring live-looped songs as “She’s the Moon” and “Keep Running”. Beebe’s skills with the looping pedal allow him to showcase his multi-instrumental talents to create a larger than life, spontaneously exciting experience for the audience. Recent accolades include Madison Magazine’s “Best Singer/Songwriter”, “Best Folk/Americana”, and “Best Alternative/Indie” artist. Additionally, the largely influential website/recording studio Daytrotter.com has recently voted Brandon’s song “Ashes” as one of the top of the year. Channeling a wide variety of influences, with a spiritual nod to the past and a sound all his own, this is folk music as never heard before.
