Laura Gibson is an internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter, born and raised in the small Oregon logging town of Coquille. Her last album, Empire Builder, was praised by Pitchfork as “a cathartic tale of loss and redemption”, and was called “a triumph” by Uncut Magazine. Both literary and raw, with a love of traditional folk music and a bent toward experimentation, she has toured four continents, and had the distinct honor of performing the very first NPR Tiny Desk Concert. She recently completed an MFA in fiction writing from Hunter College, and her sharpened language and story telling abilities are on full display on her new record Goners (out on City Slang Records).
Nadine Khouri is a singer-songwriter currently based in London. Noted by John Parish (PJ Harvey, This is the Kit) for her singular voice, Khouri was invited to sing on his Screenplay LP and subsequently recorded her debut album with the producer in his hometown of Bristol.
Her new beautifully arranged EP, A New Dawn, highlights Khouri’s talent for creating songs that feel both vast and intimate, while her warm vocal takes centre-stage with poetic lyrics set against moody, atmospheric soundscapes.
