Arborea is husband and wife duo Buck and Shanti Curran. Since forming in 2005, the avant folk duo has released 5 albums and performed throughout the US, UK, and Europe. Their performances include live sessions on the BBC, NPR, WNYC, and WXPN.
Arborea's 4th album 'Red Planet', released in 2011, received widespread critical praise including Rolling Stone's 'Best Under-the-Radar Albums of 2011' list, an 'Editors Top Pick' nod in Guitar Player Magazine, 'Top Vinyl Pick' in the September 2011 issue of Mojo Magazine, and Portland Phoenix's 'Top Ten Albums of 2011' list.
Arborea's latest album 'Fortress of the Sun' was released this past April on the New York City based label ESP-Disk, coinciding with the label's 50th Anniversary.
After releasing his debut album "Songs of Praise and Scorn" in February of 2012, Christopher Paul Stelling began touring relentlessly. Singing his songs with a pure uninhibited delivery, Stelling has become known for the intensity and passion put into his live performances. Owing as much to the bards and troubadours of times long since past as to his contemporaries, Stelling’s ever-developing commitment to his craft is obvious.
Stelling’s second album "False Cities" was released on May 21st, 2013 on the heels of his first european tour. The album is set to bring Stelling’s gothic folk mix of howling fingerpicked stomps and crooning laments to even further realization. This second release has seem him touring further and harder than ever while he preps songs for his yet to be titled third record.
