About Courtney Hartman

You've seen Courtney Hartman as part of award-winning folk bluegrass act Della Mae at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, but you've never seen her like this before. Courtney Hartman is an acclaimed guitarist, singer and writer whose songs are luminous and expansive, drawing from the shadowed spaces of the intimate and natural. Acoustic Guitar Magazine recognizes her as a “distinctive guitar stylist... and a songwriter that delights and disturbs.” Her early years were spent playing folk and bluegrass with her siblings at festivals around the country. After leaving Colorado for the Northeast, Courtney joined up with folk quintet, Della Mae, touring internationally for seven years, releasing three records and garnering a GRAMMY nomination.

Her first solo release, Nothing We Say, drew ears to her work as a songwriter and solo artist. The EP runs with ruminations from the road, influenced by the Colorado foothills where she was raised and the Brooklyn window sill from where she wrote. In 2017, following the release, Courtney was nominated by Americana Music Association for Instrumentalist of the Year. Bill Frisell, Mike Campbell, Buffy St. Marie and Shazhad Ismaily are a few of the artists Courtney has created with as she continues to collaborate across cultures and disciplines, always seeking to bring voice to the hushed and inexpressible. Her newest release, a duo with Canadian songwriter Taylor Ashton, was met with anticipation and acclaim, hailed by PopMatters as “a delicate light glistening softly in the darkness.”

Whether she is following the thread of her traditional roots or exploring the rim of her own songwriting, Courtney continues to make music both timely and compelling, pulling on the antinomies that define her. She is currently based in Colorado and will be touring in 2019 in support of her next solo album.

About Tom West

Tom West is an Australian singer-songwriter performing music that traverses the rocky and undulating ground between simple, whimsical folk tunes and grand and moody soundscapes. Delivering shows where his purposeful songwriting, unforgettable voice and intricate arrangements come to the fore. Effortlessly shifting between performing solo or with his band where banjos, saxophones & guitars complete the ramshackle wall of sound he has drawn comparisons to the likes of Volcano Choir, Andrew Bird, The Lumineers, Of Monsters & Men & Ben Howard. West’s latest work explores new boundaries in his writing and composing.
