Raised in Brooklyn, Ben de la Cour was playing New York City dive bars with his brother a full decade before he could legally drink. A high-school dropout and former amateur boxer, he received his education by listening to his parent’s record collection – full of everything from Bob Dylan and The Everly Brothers to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath. At the tender age of nineteen he spent a year in Havana training with members of the Cuban national boxing team before moving to London with his brother to revive their doom metal band, Dead Man’s Root. They lived in a van and toured around Europe for several years until the band fell apart under the two-fisted attack of burnout and drunken brawls, and in 2008 de la Cour returned to the states with a head full of softer, bruised, but no less intense acoustic songs.

Talie Polischuk is a songwriter, artist and leather worker from Winnipeg, Manitoba.
"You sit there silent. Admiring the sun as it wisps itself through the dancing leaves of an elm tree. You hear music. It's a soul with a guitar lusting your ears with a song only the past could have written. It's melody like the remnants of every bird song you ever knew grazing your ears all at once. You look down from the leaves and you see a woman. Blue jeaned and a sweater, strumming the guitar like it will pick her up and float her away from some flattened small town that will never hold her heart and singing like a siren with every intent that you succumb to floating away with her." - Scott Leroux
