Sarah Morris. Over the last five years, Americana singer-songwriter Sarah Morris has earned a reputation for engaging performances, with a voice both clear and lush. From a young age, she immersed herself in her parent’s eclectic record collection before finally falling in love with the storytelling and songcraft in country music. Spending a few years in Music City instilled a traditional songwriting sensibility that has earned her latest album Ordinary Things international airplay, critical acclaim, and has propelled her into the national spotlight.
Nashville influenced singer-songwriter Matthew French’s music and lyrics catch at the strings of hope hidden within heartache. Guitar in hand, coffee cup nearby; the melody transports and the words tell a story. Our story. A human story. Matthew’s audiences feel themselves reflected in the warmth of his voice. Not strangers, just unmet friends.
Doug Collins who is originally from rural Iowa, has been called "one of the most brilliant songwriters to emerge from the Twin Cities in nearly two decades" by southernminn.com. His last CD, “Complicated Compliments” was voted one of the best of the year in the Mpls Star Tribune. Doug performs both solo and with his band the Receptionists.
