WEXT

Australian singer-songwriter, Emma Swift has lived in the US for several years.  She's based in Nashville now, and with her latest album worked with Pat Sansone of Wilco.  She has recreated an album of Bob Dylan covers called "Blonde on the Tracks."  Lovely arrangements of some popular and some lesser known songs.

The Sea The Sea
WEXT/Artist

The Sea The Sea, Chuck and Mira arrived on the Local 518 music scene a few years back. We met at a Sean Rowe CD release party.  We had already heard their music and had fallen in love with the sound that Chuck and Mira make.  In person, they were even more delightful.

Charlotte Reilly

We're big fans of Saratoga Springs' singer-songwriter Charlotte Reilly.  The 2017 Blue Streaks grad recently peformed her brand of bluesy rock 'n roll for an episode of WMHT-TV's AHA!

Belle-Skinner
Artist

We fell under Maria Brosgol's hypnotic trance a handful of years ago when she first started making music under the moniker Belle-Skinner.  She seduces you with a mix of mid-century pop with fingerstyle contemporary folk, and then makes you cry.  

Mary Scholz
Artist

Our good friend, Mary Scholz was feeling inspired by the Statue of Liberty. Her latest single releases on October 8th. It's called "Lady Liberty," and is as statuesque a song as its inspiration.
