Kylland is a duo formed in Oakland, CA. Fronted by American-Norwegian-Japanese singer-songwriter/guitarist Kim Kylland and rounded out by collaborator/bassist Todd Schramke, the pair will be releasing their first record on April 29th 2018. Their debut 'Bloom' is an eclectic mix of folk, pop, & rock, driven by Kim Kylland's unique and captivating voice. Also featured on the record is long-time friend and collaborator Josiah Johnson (of The Head and the Heart), who co-wrote and performed two of the album’s songs with Kim. facebook.com/KyllandMusic/
Southern California native, current resident of the Bay Area, former Seattlei...te, one-time Torontonian, and long-time tour busy resident. JOSIAH JOHNSON'S immersion in the musical culture of so many locales, as well as his dedication to constant touring, have given him the means to share his music far and wide. But the strength of his songwriting has carried his music far beyond his physical reach. Best known as a member of American indie-folkers THE HEAD AND THE HEART, Josiahs solo performances highlight a stripped down, emotive, lyrics-first kind of song craft, inimitable in its sincerity and beauty.
If there is one constant in the work of singer-songwriter Sawyer Gebauer, it is change. Sawyer's new project, Catch Prichard, grew from deep roots in Americana. Citing Townes Van Zandt and Springsteen’s 1995 LP The Ghost of Tom Joad as major influences, Sawyer set out to record a collection of sweet and simple songs that exalt narrative as much as they do melody. The result is Eskota, a five-song EP resting somewhere between languid folk and forlorn country; Sawyer’s weighty baritone gliding over pedal steel and Moog like an oil slick on water.
