Join us for a powerful singer song writer experience featuring Desert Prose from Taos, NM, Many Mountains from Colorado, and David Costanza of Art of Flying, also a local Taos resident.
Based out of Taos, New Mexico, Desert Prose consists of Marisa Ireland and Tom Pryor. Perfecting their unique sound for several years, Tom and Marisa are an indie/folk duo drenched in harmony and the dreamy sounds of pedal steel.
Many Mountains is a Folk-Rock Duo from Colorado. Katie Rose Nelson and Dustin Moran like to make songwriting the focus of their music. The combination of their writing styles and unique song arrangements, bring a fresh sound to the Folk-Rock scene. A kaleidoscope of sound, songs are interlaced with vocal harmonies and leads that alternate between the two songwriters. Each with perspectives on the relationships we have with ourselves and with others – bringing truths to the table, facing who we are, and the constant state of becoming. Dustin adds textured and ambient electric guitar, often improvising with a jazzy temperance, over Katie Rose’s rhythmic acoustic. Having shared the bill with acts like Valley Queen, Gin Blossoms, Liz Cooper & The Stampede, Paul Cauthen, and Michigan Rattlers, their sound transcends ordinary genre limitations. Supported by the sonic landscape they create, you’ll be on a journey with Many Mountains.
Art of Flying (Solo) is the songs of David Costanza & Anne Speroni set to music by an ever-changing cast of talented co-conspiritors. Working out of their home studio, the Barn, they have recorded 6 CD’s & 1 10″ record since forming the band in 1998. Their songs are hazy & beautiful, content to balance contradictions: critics calling them at first “clear & bright” & then in the next sentence, “creaky & weird;” “soulful & expansive” at one moment & “arid & desolate” the next. “Atmospheric, voraciously eclectic, momentarily Floydian…& thoroughly brilliant,” is how the Eugene Weekly described Art of Flying’s music. Originally based in Questa, NM & now living in Taos, Art of Flying stays mostly off of the musical grid. Italian magazine BLOW-UP called them “the best-kept secret in American music of the new century.”
