Brianna Lane


Brianna Lane is an Americana singer/songwriter from Minneapolis, MN. She has the voice of a chain-smoking angel, songs that balance hope and despair, and the stage presence of an old friend.

For fans of Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin, and Shawn Colvin.

“Poised, ambitious, a soul-singer of the first order, and an accomplished guitarist.”

— Jim Walsh (Star Tribune Minneapolis, MN)

Jacob Miller


Wisconsin native Jacob Miller left his hometown for Portland, OR the summer of 2009 via Amtrak, bringing with him only a suitcase and an electric guitar. After one year in the city he left to travel North America, both to study and perform music while working on various farms and ranches between travels. Time spent as a farm hand in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina shaped his devotion to the finger-picking style of the region. Spending countless hours playing alongside vintage recordings and with local old-timers in the surrounding areas of Appalachia, Miller delved into the inner workings of the music’s style and history.

After 7 years leading a jazz sextet and performing both internationally and throughout North America, Miller now focuses his efforts on a different kind of songwriting and storytelling. Whether it be playing for thousands at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall or for 5 people in a Midwest living room, Jacob's passion, voice and laid-back demeanor create an intimate connection with audiences far and wide.

With an affinity for minimalist pop and firm roots planted in American traditional music, Jacob Miller crafts a timeless sound unique to his voice, style and abilities.

In 2019, Jacob released his debut record, ‘This New Home,’ which displays his abilities as a performer, writer and composer. Recorded and performed entirely by Miller in a Portland home-turned-studio, songs and ideas come together to form an album that is honest and heartfelt.

John Louis


John Louis is a singer/songwriter based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A 2019 Kerrville New Folk finalist, and honorable mention at the 2019 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, John crafts dusky country folk songs. “John Louis's songwriting is reminiscent of Kris Kristofferson, John Prine and Townes Van Zandt.” (Radio Heartland, Minnesota Public Radio)

John Louis released Live at The Warming House, Minneapolis Minnesota in 2018, which includes 11 new songs plus 2 from his 2015 release Drift. “Live at The Warming House, Minneapolis, Minnesota is both gentle and intense. It welcomes listeners in, and gives them something to think about.” (No Depression) The artwork and title pay homage to John’s favorite Townes Van Zandt record, Live at The Old Quarter, Houston Texas.

The release of Drift in September 2015 marked John’s first record as a solo singer/songwriter. For Drift, Louis pulled together some gifted Minneapolis-based musicians, including Mike “Razz” Russell (fiddle, mandolin, guitar); Jimmy Johnson (pedal steel); Brianna Lane (banjo, backing vocals); Jed Germond (fiddle); Andy Carroll (bass); the Cactus Blossoms’ Page Burkum and Jack Torrey (backing vocals) and Romantica’s Ben Kyle (backing vocals).
