The Show Ponies
The Show Ponies
The Show Ponies have forged their success with constant touring and critically acclaimed records while earning a devoted fan base. Both of their LP’s as well as the upcoming Run For Your Life have been entirely crowdfunded on thestrength of a formidable social media presence and word of mouth in the midst of zig-zagging up and down the PacificWest with forays back to Carder’s native Texas. In addition to their long stay on the Americana Music Association’s charts, the Show Ponies recently opened for Rascal Flatts, Easton Corbin and Robert Earl Keen at the 2014 CountryExplosion Festival in Tooele, Utah.

For the Show Ponies, the West is still wild. Their songs endeavor to preserve its wonder and our place in it. Steeped in deep tradition, the Show Ponies achieve that rare magic of transforming what is familiar into the precious and delightful.Their melodies and poetry remind us not only of the possibility of favorite artists or even favorite songs, but of favoritemoments in a song. Here we find such moments, where a song-sweetened story helps discover for us the courage to light out for the territory ahead.
The Novel Ideas
The Novel Ideas
The Novel Ideas are a country folk quintet of friends from the great state of Massachusetts. Featuring the voices of three different songwriters, The Novel Ideas create a blend of pastoral, harmony driven, and plaintive Americana. In 2014 they released a 10" single "Lost on the Road", featuring two new songs and marking the band's first effort as a five piece. The following couple years have been spent touring nationally, writing, and recording as a band. Their latest release, St. Paul Sessions, was recorded live in an old church in their hometown. It features six unreleased songs, and aims to capture the raw, live energy of their live performance.
