Two dudes. One beard. 14 strings. Jake Swamp and The Pine is a americana/folk duo featuring Drew on rhythm guitar and vocals, and Stu on mandolin (for the mando-win). Influenced by a myriad of musicians ranging from The Grateful Dead to Stan Rogers to Johnny Flynn, the duo has an extensive collection of originals, but also a collection of original interpretations of songs you can sing (or yell) along to. The two met on Craigslist in April 2018 and the rest was history.

Kate is an award-winning songwriter, singer, guitarist, and producer whose voice NPR calls “glassily clear and glossily sweet.” She studied the influence of jazz on poetry at Harvard, and studied jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music.Working with legendary producer/arranger Rob Mounsey, Kate recently recorded her new album, Bright Nowhere. It maps the landscape of loss around her mother’s diagnosis and death from ovarian cancer. Kate spent four years as her mom’s primary caregiver, along the way writing songs about life, loss, and (to use Christopher Hitchens’s potent phrase) “living dyingly.” Her TEDx talk, “A Grief Casserole -- How to help your friends & family through loss,” has been called nothing short of life-changing for people struggling with grief.Kate’s songs have won top honors from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and ASCAP. She’s shared stages with Scott Colley, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Julian Lage, to name only a few.After nearly a decade living and making music in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, she now calls New York City home.
