Carlisle Evans Peck
Carlisle Evans Peck
Carlisle Evans Peck strives for the heart of human connection through musical performance. Like an acoustic ballet, his diligence and pain become a thing of dainty and powerful beauty. His transformation of emotion into music pulls at the tears between us and our loved ones, between us and the bountiful earth that we walk, opening a wound that we are compelled to tend. He puts his rawness on display - on display in the sense of a dew-dropped flower tentatively unfurling in hopes of meeting the morning sun. And through this vulnerability he gathers us into the story with him. We leave with the feeling of having made something tremendous together, of having fallen in love. Or rather, we are left heartbroken with the rich memories of a life lived fully.
Annie Enneking
Annie Enneking
Annie is a song and dance man in an open relationship with music. She longs for temporary amnesia and all it brings. She could be a musician, a photographer, actress, concubine, weapons manufacturer, or a rocket scientist wearing a really cool apron from the fifties. She can appreciate the concept of the “proximity fuse” for both its ring and metaphoric pizazz, and enjoys the commitment that truly red lipstick demands. She listens to her favorite songs over and over again, dooming them to love, and likes the smell of books, even new ones. She believes songwriting is an act of spiritual archeology and so sifts through words to find bones of song, telling stories about being a person in a world full of people. Annie relies on the artistry, thick invention, and dig-right-down-into-it-ness of the Bang Bangs: the stacked chording and “just what the song wants” guitar of John Riedlinger, the stealthy bass-shark that is Tom Penney, and the heavy adventure and sharp-corner-turning drums of Mike Kittel. The band values energy, theatricality, animal intelligence, beautiful mischief that holds some truth, and the mild perversion of being totally frank. They're grunge meets late 60s dark rock, if you must know, with something heavier thrown in, like a chocolate anvil.
Bella Yaga
Bella Yaga
Bella Yaga is the music and performance project of multi-disciplinary artist Anna Johnson. The electric folk ensemble delivers an original sound that unites stunning harmonies, textured guitar and violin, and shadowed bass and drums. The resulting songs are earthy yet electric, rooted in folk traditions yet freshly poetic, collaging new artistic terrains and textures of the past. Their performances often take inspiration from the worlds of music, theater, and visual art, and seamlessly blend moving image with song.

The band takes its name from Baba Yaga, a death goddess in Slavic folklore. Johnson chose "Bella” to suggest at a contrast between a floral, youthful beauty, and an ancient, darker wisdom and sound.

The songs on the band’s newly-released debut album, Slipped From A Subtle Skin, explore the liminal space between life and death, touching on transition, decline, transformation, intimacy, healing, and release through subtle, poetic lyrics.
