Eliza GilkysonEliza Gilkyson is one of the finest singer-songwriters making music today. She “doesn’t pull any punches,” says the New York Times. “She graces the music with her lush and passionate voice; a dark and lonely sound, hope and satisfaction, and edgy lyrics with piercing imagery round out the whole.” The Boston Globe praises her “masterfully structured, startlingly intimate songs in a beautifully lived in voice.” She started her musical career recording demos for her father, the legendary folksinger and songwriter Terry Gilkyson, and has since released 19 solo albums, including Land of Milk and Honey, which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Folk Album. She was inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame in 2003 and has received several awards from Folk Alliance and the Austin Chronicle. Her songs have been used in films and television programs, and recorded by such artists as Joan Baez, Bob Geldof, Tom Rush, and Rosanne Cash.
The new album, The Nocturne Diaries, features “songs that came to me in the middle of the night,” she says, adding that “the songs that come in the night are very different than the daylight songs.” The album explores dark territory with honesty and wit. “Thank god I’m breathing / I still got my wedding ring / time is fleeting / I’m so worried about everything,” she sings on “Eliza Jane.” American Songwriter praises her “supple, expressive voice” and says that she “uses her nocturnal musings to create a shimmering album that sounds just as impressive in the daylight as in the darkness that inspired it.” “She's given us another remarkable glimpse of her gifts as a vocalist and songwriter,” says the website AllMusic. “Even the darkest moments here are warmed by a genuine compassion for the lost souls who sometimes populate her stories, and a very real concern for the world we all live in is woven through every tune.”
Freight favorite Nina Gerber is the LeBron James of guitar players – a superstar who makes everyone around her play better. She’s added her talents to the work of a wealth of wonderful artists, including Karla Bonoff, Peter Rowan, Nanci Griffith, Lucy Kaplansky, Laurie Lewis, and Kate Wolf, with whom Nina started her musical career. Her album Good Music with Good People features outstanding performances with Jackson Browne, Bruce Cockburn, and Eliza, among others, all taken from the Kate Wolf Festival, and Nina has a new album, Apple Blossom Lane, a collaboration with Chris Webster.
