Austin MacRae is a singer/songwriter from Ithaca, NY, whose music is known for its lyrical and vocal intensity. With a sensitive finger-picking style, MacRae crafts songs rich in wordplay and story. He has showcased his music regionally at venues such as Club Passim, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (Emerging Artist), Turtle Hill Folk Festival (New Voices Showcase), Ithaca Festival, Oswego Music Hall, Homer Center for the Arts, Bill Knowlton's Bluegrass Ramble Picnic and other area venues. His debut album, Bats in the Attic, won a Syracuse Area Music Award (SAMMY) for Best Folk Recording of 2015. His second album, Keeper, won a SAMMY for Best Americana in 2018. He was recently a Semi-formal Showcase Artist at the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) in Stamford, CT, as well as being selected for the the Suzi Wollenberg DJ Showcase. His work has also been featured on a variety of radio stations and shows, including the Sundilla Radio Hour, hosted by Kelly Walker. In 2017 MacRae was one of three winners of the South Florida Folk Festival's singer/songwriter competition in Ft. Lauderdale.

Jen Cork has a passion for dirt, baritone ukes, 1904 uprights, vocal layering, emotional honesty and found sounds. Piano, guitar, melodica, and damn, she can sing….and her voice is just the beginning. From packed art galleries, camp fire circles in Michigan, and harmony singing to deep listening rooms, Jen is at home.

She is a well-known part of the music scene in Ithaca, NY. She ruminates on rusty turnbuckles. She loves the history, grit and intersection of nature and mechanical objects, and her emotional songwriting grows out of these timeworn landscapes. There is history in her voice and legacy in her songs.

Cork was named “Best Female Singer” by the Ithaca Journal.

Finger Lakes Music Press called her a “Superb Vocal Stylist,” and her band was selected to perform at the Confluence Benefit for the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY.

A skilled bandleader, singer, songwriter, producer, instrumentalist and collaborator, Jen Cork is ready.

Andrew Alling is a singer-songwriter who resides in Ithaca, N.Y. Following the Grateful Dead around in the late '80s and '90s, he supported himself as a street musician, visiting 46 states. He played keyboards with jam bands while living in Syracuse, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, California and Nashville. He now performs exclusively on acoustic guitar, organ bass pedals and the harmonica. He does this all simultaneously.

Andrew is a one-man three-piece singer-songwriter jam band. Strongly influenced by the folk revival of the late '60s and the 70s songwriting movement, he believes in keeping his sound clean without using effects pedals and live looping recording devices.

He has written more than 100 songs and self-produced more than six CDs. Balanced with his current yoga practice, his music speaks of politics, love, hardship, truth, adversity and hope. You can buy his music, but catch one of his live shows.

Janet Batch is a singer songwriter who resides in the Finger Lakes Region of central New York State. Her first album, “A Good Woman is Hard to Find” has garnered her praise from country/folk fans and connoisseurs alike. Janet's musical style has been referred to as "country with an art degree" and she has been endeared as "the voice of the hills". Her lyrics and vocals remind listeners of Stevie Nicks, Patty Griffin, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Neil Young. She sings, unabashed, of death, romance, and the wondering of what went wrong. Her lyrics and harmonies are an illustration of the pendulum that swings between joy and heartache.
