Jenny Lewis has confirmed her highly anticipated return with her fourth solo album - On The Line - out spring 2019 on Warner Bros. Records. Since releasing 2014's critically acclaimed The Voyager- which NPR likened to "California sunshine glinting off the Pacific Ocean, steeped in the West Coast pop sounds of the 1970s"- Jenny Lewis has been plotting her highly anticipated return. Between headlining dates around the globe and stealing the show at Newport Folk Festival 2018, not to mention captivating audiences as special guest of Beck at Madison Square Garden, Jenny has been fastidious in recording brand new material. Featuring a who's who of supporting players including Beck, Benmont Tench, Don Was, Jim Keltner and Ringo Starr among others, and recorded at the distinguished Capitol Studios, On The Line will no doubt be a triumphant and irresistible highlight of 2019.

Karl Blau is a Pacific Northwest staple, a consistently prolific troubadour who defies genre. Armed with an unmistakable, deeply emotional voice which (roams between) baritones to falsettos with ease. A talented multi instrumentalist, songwriter, arranger, and producer, at Karl's essence is collaboration. Collaboration with other artists like Laura Veirs, Mount Eerie, LAKE, Heatwarmer, and the Spacebomb collective? and collaboration between genres that no one else would think to combine like classical and reggae (his Coconutcracker Suite!). Blau currently holes up in his hobble, concocting another reggae collab this time between country blues and reggae.
In the past few years Blau has released two, critically acclaimed albums: Introducing Karl Blau (Raven Marching Band Records/Bella Union) and Out Her Space (Bella Union), and consequently announced to entirely new audiences in both the US, Europe and beyond. As an artist who as often been described as ahead of his time it's possible the rest of us are finally catching up.
