Girl Blue, Zan & the Winter Folk and Belle-Skinner
“Girl Blue is the moniker of singer-songwriter/producer Arielle O’Keefe. Compared often to the likes of Laura Marling, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King and Jeff Buckley, she is a powerhouse vocalist with the rare ability to write songs that catch the ear and touch the heart. Girl Blue’s first single, “Fire Under Water” was released completely independently, and was immediately recognized by Spotify on their “New Music Friday” playlist.
Zan & the Winter Folk:
Troy, New York-based artist Zan Strumfeld has carved her own little niche of winter folk—anthems for the revivalists, lullabies for the lonely, ballads for the hopeful. With a soulful and seductive vulnerability, Zan’s songs of love and heartbreak are complemented by the indie folk/bluegrass sound of her band. In 2018, Zan and The Winter Folk were named Best Folk Band by The Alt—in their first year as a band.
Belle-Skinner aka Maria Brosgol is a singer-songwriter, guitarist, and producer based in upstate New York and Brooklyn. With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads – nuanced and layered stories which bridge the gap between past and present.
