Vilray
Vilray
Vilray (vill-ree) is a composer and performer raised in Brooklyn. He sings, whistles, and plays guitar in NYC and around the world.

His recent work explores the depths of humor, heartache and romance captured in the varieties of Jazz and Country swing music played in the 1930s, 40s and 50s.

With the 2017 release of three singles of original music, Vilray's unique take on the Tin Pan Alley style is gaining wider acclaim. These songs were entirely recorded live and lathe-cut to vinyl in real time--lending them a haunting warmth and authentic crackle.
Jefferson Hamer
Jefferson Hamer
Jefferson Hamer is a songwriter, guitarist, and traditional musician based in Brooklyn, NY. His new album Alameda features Jeff Picker, John Fatum, Alec Spiegelman, Hannah Read, Sarah Jarosz, and others. Murphy Beds, his traditional acoustic duo with Eamon O’Leary, features harmony vocals backed by intricate guitar and bouzouki accompaniment. The Huffington Post said it succinctly: “The [Murphy Beds] album bears repeated listening from start to finish, with ten beautiful, crystalline songs.”

Hamer also plays electric guitar and sings (and moonlights as a Bostonian) with the six-piece roots rock ensemble Session Americana. In 2016 he recorded and co-produced their album Great Shakes.

His 2013 Child Ballads album with Anais Mitchell earned a BBC2 Folk Award and was named one of NPR’s top-ten Folk releases of the year.

“A gifted guitarist and singer, Hamer is able to hit close harmonies… and weave gorgeous instrumental lines.” -Acoustic Guitar
