Laura Benitez and the Heartache use the three chord tools of country music to tell the simple, unvarnished truth about love, too much whiskey, and the call of the road. Their songs range from honky-tonk shuffles to rock ‘n’ roll numbers to sweet old time waltzes, and cover everything from unwed motherhood (“Me or the Baby”) to mean drunks (“Don’t Wake the Devil”), with a whole lot of heartbreak in between. Their twangy honesty shines through in straightforward arrangements, crystalline harmonies, and spare instrumentation. Beware their catchy hooks and sweet melodies – these stray puppy tunes will follow you home and become your most steadfast companions.
Missouri-born, Los Angeles-based storyteller, Little Lonely (a.k.a. Julie Cain), provides a soundtrack for the forgotten American landscape. Otherworldly intoxicating and full of longing, her music evokes a time out of balance. It’s equal parts mirth and quiet reflection from the heartland.Visit Event Website for More Info
