Cillie Barnes
Cillie Barnes is a musical project helmed by songwriter Vanessa Long.
In the past she’s put out a couple E.P.’s, had her songs in a couple shows, had some nice quotes written about her and...That shit’s in the past.

Now Cillie Barnes is Vanessa Long, Marko Kurtović, Nick White, Thomas Berg, Trevor Sohnen and Andrew Tyler. They just got done doing a full length album, Cobra Lily, produced by Joe Keefe and it’s gonna be sick. Collectively they enjoy the alexander technique, running the grand canyon, murder mysteries, postmodernism, animation, haunted houses, cheese, hounds, boardgames, and magick. If you combine all there names together like a celebrity couple it would like this. : Sohler Whitević Longberg

Allie Crow Buckley
Allie Crow Buckley
Allie Crow Buckley is a coastal-country artist from California. Her music is of the high-lonesome, Pacific variety - a product of her lifelong love of sounds she heard in her roving family’s many homes. Born in Haight-Ashbury, San Francisco in ’93, the Pacific Ocean has always been her backyard. Her twenty-four years have been spent in Mendocino, New Zealand, Venice Beach, and Malibu, the strange beach town on the edge of Los Angeles where she wrote the songs you hear today.

Her songs are written on the autoharp, an instrument she discovered not out of admiration for June Carter but at the recommendation of the Scottish comedian Billy Connolly, reinforcing the bond between the Celtic melancholia at the heart of country music that has travelled so far West it’s now undeniably it’s own thing.

Her aim is to build off her influences; primarily Little Feat, Lucinda Williams, and Townes van Zandt, and fuse those with what she describes as her own “inherently strange approach” to melody and story. Her raw early recordings reached producer Sean O’Brian, and together they pursued a more fleshed-out, full band sound. She and her group are currently performing in and around Los Angeles between recording sessions of her debut album.Allie Crow Buckley is a coastal-country artist from California.
