Elijah Berlow is a Chicago-based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist folk musician. Berlow is a playful story-teller with a narrative style grounded in the traditions of Americana music. As a vocalist, he emanates a sincere warmth through his thoughtful phrasing. Berlow creates music that is complex, soulful and in conversation with a rich rhythmic history.
When singer-songwriter Max Janairo (they/them) performs by themself, they go by their full first name: Maximiano. For the last year and a half, Max has been writing and releasing music as part of the local band Crawlspace, during which time many songs that didn’t fit that group’s aesthetic were stored away. Since the band’s break-up, these songs have found new life and new meaning. Riding waves of indie folk orchestration, Maximiano’s plaintive voice conveys the heartbreak, love, and growth that continue to define the artist’s musical experiences. In live solo performances, Maximiano offers an intimate experience, one that lets the communal love of music overtake and renew the emotion of these songs.
“Derek Pritzl is a Wisconsin singer/songwriter born and raised in the fertile farmland of Valders, Wisconsin. He brings a style and narrative that is reminiscent of some of the great songwriters of yesterday and today, continuing a tradition of songwriting developed by artists such as John Prine, Guy Clark, John Fogerty, and Bill Walkner. His songs evoke visions of the struggles of the working man, the road-weary traveler, and of love found and love lost. Regardless of the size of venue, his music and songs create an atmosphere of intimacy, reflection, and fellowship that brings the audience into his world.”
Combining a touch of the high and lonesome hollers of the Appalachian hill people with the low-down, dusty grooves of the cosmic cowboys, Dandy has created a unique sonic banquet sure to satisfy the hunger of any weary passerby. So don’t be afraid to stop awhile. And fill up your plate, there’s plenty to go around.
