Mia Bertelli
Mia Bertelli
Close your eyes. Imagine a lilting Irish ballad in a crowded pub, a raw Appalachian holler, a tenderly sung lullaby, a sacred chant echoing around an empty church, and a close three-part harmony song rising amid the smoke of a late night fire. These are some of the scenes that Mia Bertelli evokes in her singing, with a warm low range and fluid melodic lines full of playful phrasing and nuanced ornamentation. Whether she is singing pop, soul, jazz, country, or folk, her honest and immediate voice offers an unfiltered glimpse into the delight she has found in singing since she first let a note fly. From collaborations with singers, accordionists, cellists, and bass players to the well-loved instruments that are fretted and plucked, she seeks musical projects that are rich with rhythmic and harmonic possibility, and the potential to surprise her. She is thrilled to be collaborating with the Oshima Brothers, whose joy and musical expertise have left her on the edge of her seat and humming third harmonies under her breath from the first song she heard.

Oshima Brothers
Oshima Brothers' magnetic sibling sound and contagious joy derives from a lifetime of making music together. Raised in a musical family in rural Maine, these young musicians have honed a harmony-drenched blend of contemporary folk, acoustic pop, and Americana. On stage they deliver songs rich with dynamic vocals, dreamy electric and acoustic guitars, octave bass, loop pedal and percussion; evoking the intimacy of a coffeehouse with the exuberance of the big stage. Their debut album, The Oshima Brothers, released in 2016, is a collection of 11 original songs that are soulful yet upbeat, touching on themes of love, loss, and the romance of travel.
