Supersmall (Solo) & Ruby Rae

Supersmall: Colin Dempsey is an Irish singer-songwriter based in New York City who performs under the moniker Supersmall. His music is a blend of artists such as Nick Drake, Crowded House, Elliott Smith, Colin Hay and Frank Turner and has been described as poetic, fun, and folky. He is promoting his latest release "Silent Moon".

Ruby Rae: Ruby Rae writes and performs music that defies easy categorization: a catalogue of influences would include Wanda Jackson, Mazzy Star, and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. Both vibrant and dark, simultaneously catchy and psychological, the sound is cinematic and complex, drawing on diverse sources that include folklore, mythology, horror films, and autobiography. Ruby Rae is promoting her latest release "The Uncanny".
