Caiola

Jordan Caiola (CAI•OLA) is a songwriter/musician/producer based out of Philadelphia. He founded the indie rock band Mo Lowda & The Humble in 2010 and due to its intense touring schedule, the band became his main priority along with his side project NightSeason (founded 2016)- an indie/electro-pop producer duo. Though he always felt writing folk songs was his true “wheelhouse”, it wasn’t until the nationwide lockdown in early 2020 that he finally put aside the time to record a collection of those songs for his first solo album ‘Only Real When Shared’. The album (due out October 2nd, 2020) was entirely recorded during quarantine with producer/engineer/drummer Shane Woods, with whom Caiola previously co-produced all the Mo Lowda records as well as Arson Daily’s 2020 LP ‘Late Reflections.’ Caiola’s debut album highlights every aspect of his vocal spectrum and strips down instrumental elements to direct focus towards the lyrical content much more than on previous efforts. Jangly acoustic guitars, lo-fi drums, and lush harmonies makeup the bulk of this record, with sit-ins from multiple additional musicians sprinkled throughout. Caiola is set to release a new single every 2 weeks starting July 24th up until the full album comes out October 2nd, 2020

Airpark

Quiet Type: an Intimate Collection of New & Old

Formed in 2017 by brothers Ben Ford and Michael Ford, Jr., Airpark is a Nashville-based duo whose songs explore the wide expanse of forward-thinking pop music.

It's a sound that's both timely and timeless, rooted in sharp grooves one minute and dreamily rounded edges the next. Over the course of four EPs, the Fords have created music that's honest and ever-evolving, glued together by nuanced arrangements, an attention to melody, and the refusal to make the same record twice.

They turn another corner with 2021's Quiet Type: an Intimate Collection of New & Old. Recorded during the chaos of the 2020 pandemic and released on the band's own Eugenia Hall Records, the five-song EP presents the most soothing track list of Airpark's career. Gone are the heavy-hitting drums that gave the band's debut, Early Works, Volume 1, its percussive pulse. Absent are the cinematic soundscapes that filled Airpark's third EP, the Tennis-produced Songs of Airpark, with a sense of windswept cool. Instead, Quiet Type: an Intimate Collection of New & Old focuses on a warmly organic mix of acoustic guitars, atmospheric pedal steel, and male-female duets. It's the band's most folk-influenced release, full of soft hues and a therapeutic sense of space.

Returning fans might recognize songs like "All the Time" and "Devotion," two previously-released tracks that are presented here in fresh, reimagined versions. "Devotion," whose original recording earned more than two million streams on Spotify alone, is reborn as a sparse, airy track with backing vocals from Nightingail, while "All the Time" — one of two songs featuring harmonies from Erin Rae — evokes T-Bone Burnett's work on the Americana cult classic Raising Sand. Coupled with new songs like the lo-fi "Little Hollywood" and the hushed, bedroom-pop stunner "Quiet Type," the EP unfolds like a salve for a bruised and battered era.

The Ford siblings have always been fans of collaboration, from their coast-to-coast tours with acts like St. Lucia to their own co-writing sessions. With Quiet Type: an Intimate Collection of New & Old, they extend that team spirit to a wider circle of partners, tapping frequent collaborator Scott Hundley as their producer and lacing the songs with contributions from upright bassist Byron House, pedal steel guitarist Spencer Cullum, and guest vocalists like Erin Rae, Valley Queen, and Nightingail. The result is a record that stands in low-key defiance of the isolated feelings that permeate the Covid-19 era, while also highlighting the exploration and musical diversity at the core of Airpark's work. Quiet Type: an Intimate Collection of New & Old may be tranquil, but these songs still speak volumes

Kirby Sybert

Kirby’s musical adventures have led him around the world, originally from a small town in Pennsylvania he’s traversed from NYC to Nashville to LA and everywhere in between. Kirby creates a vibe that people latch onto. This is reflected in his songs, which are built on hip-shaking grooves, while his lyrics portray a vast set of characters, united in their struggle to be better people in a better world. Because of his intense focus on forging a relationship with his audience, every one of Kirby's performances is a unique experience. It is simply in his nature; if there is a piano in a room, it will be played, and if there is a person in the room, they will be befriended. The only way to truly understand is to experience it for yourself!
