Dan Lipton Trio
Dan Lipton Trio
Dan Lipton Trio is a mix of guitar (Dan Lipton), bass (Ken Cobb) and cajon (Baptiste Bourgade) that falls somewhere in between Americana, folk and alt-country, combining occasionally jazzy chords with clean but raspy vocal styles.
Lipton sums up his songwriting journey succinctly, saying “I caught my stride in Atlanta, lost it in Brooklyn while recalibrating my songwriting to fit a less country-oriented audience, and then found my style again in DC.” Lipton began self-recording his 2016 release, Breathing In, along the way, with the bulk of the material tracked out in rented cabins from Maine to Virginia.

In the wake of its release in 2016, Breathing In was covered by Huffington Post, hailed as “beautifully powerful” by Groundsounds and called a “sun-dappled, grass between the toes, slice of comfort” by Bearded Magazine. Many outlets also took note of Dan’s journeyman approach to his songwriting and he was lauded as “A master in his own field” by Famous Last Words. More than anything, the album seemed to provide a healing balm for those experiencing the transitory nature of modern living.
Lauren Calve Duo
Lauren Calve Duo
Virginia native Lauren Calve is a singer-songwriter based in Washington, D.C. Steeped in American roots music, Calve's songs are by turns anthemic and poetic as they move between rousing blues-rock, sweeping folk-driven numbers, and delicate balladry. Her multifaceted vocal style takes inspiration from such powerful female singers as Patty Griffin, Bonnie Raitt, and Emmylou Harris, to which she adds an instrumental line-up of resonator guitar, electric slide guitar, acoustic bass, and drums. She is currently recording her first EP--set to be released Fall 2013--and is sure to bring a vital new energy to the East Coast's Americana scene.
