Pop soul with some folk roots and a wicked sense of humor Laryssa Birdseye is a soul/folk/pop singer with a dirty mouth and a heart of gold. Guitar in hand, Laryssa is a formidable songwriter, evoking an earlier Sheryl Crow with a dirtier, moodier sound. She’ll have you shouting along with her during an empowering anthem and in the palm of her hand during a somber ballad. Either way, be prepared to laugh and feel a lot. Backed by her full band, Laryssa is an undeniable talent and rising star in the Pacific Northwest.

Singer-songwriter Branson Anderson hails from Logandale, Nevada, a tiny, sleepy, desert town dating back to the 1860s, best known as the home of the Clark County Fair and Rodeo. As a teen, Anderson started writing songs with dreams of rambling across the land as a traveling musician. In fact, he once ditched high school and took a two and a half day bus ride to Nashville with the sole plan of going to Third Man Records to meet Jack White. It didn’t quite pan out and fifteen hours later he was back on a bus headed home, but a love for the adventures of the road got into his blood on that trip. Now based in Ogden, Utah, another historic frontier town rich in cowboy lore, Anderson lives in a camp trailer and fully embraces the life of a troubadour, working as a truck driver for a rock quarry when he isn’t gigging. With a creative approach to writing that eschews traditional song structure, Anderson’s influences include Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Jack White, and Robert Johnson. Fueled by a humble reverence for Americana, as a performer Anderson channels the spirit of yesteryear imbued with a fresh, unique take on roots music. Anderson has toured the U.S. and parts of Europe, opening for Corb Lund, Charlie Parr, Brothers Comatose, Sammy Brue, and fellow Utah resident Joshua James, who produced Anderson’s 2017 debut album, Graydog, as well as his recently released album, Applecore, Baltimore.
