KIMYA DAWSON: While acclaimed New York anti-folk duo MOLDY PEACHES take a hiatus, founder member Kimya Dawson has been busier than ever, releasing four solo albums (the lastest of which, 'Hidden Vagenda', has just been released on K RECORDS) and touring constantly "in a mission to embrace the whole world" and connect with as many people as possible. She is the modern-day WOODY GUTHRIE and BILLIE HOLIDAY rolled into one. She has recently toured with DANIEL JOHNSTON, JASON ANDERSON, SCHWERVON!, HERMAN DUNE, JEFFREY LEWIS and CALVIN JOHNSON, and shares the same playful innocence wrapped in world-weary-knowing as each of them.

Kimya's tender and often heart-breaking songs, are performed so simply and intimately, sung through a smoker-toned tongue, that you feel as though they are being whispered into your ear by a best friend. Like a dream, and your mother is singing you asleep; a familiar lullaby of joy and depair in life and of death and the world and of it's strange beauty... The bittersweet first-love heartache of a laughter wrapped in grief. A Kimya Dawson show is a special occasion - it's a reassurance that you can still feel life the way you did when you were six. www.kimyadawson.com www.krecs.com www.livejournal.com/users/kimya_dawson_

STRAND OF OAKS: Strand of Oaks started as an idea between two friends who met in Philadelphia. The concept of the band was to take a group of folk songs and build them into much larger ideas. Because of this process, the songs blend a unique mix of simplicity and color. The band consists of three members at the present time: Tim (guitar.banjo.vocals) Greg (bass.guitar.keys) Thomas (drums). http://www.purevolume.com/strandofoaks
