About the Artists: Garry Blackchild is an Indie Folk singer/songwriter based in Taos NM. Originally from Pasadena CA his lyrics and soundreflect the story of a life on the road and his journey to New Mexico. HIs newest E.P. Rebel Folk pays homage to his adventures in New Mexico. From outlaw western ballads to country blues this E.P. is his prayer to the land and culture of the State of New Mexico.
Dust City Opera materialized out of Albuquerque, New Mexico, but they might as well have slipped through some intergalactic portal or stowed away on a derelict spacecraft before crashlanding in the desert. These eclectic musicians—Paul Hunton [vocals, guitar, songwriter], Clara Byom [clarinet, accordion, keys], Travis Rourk [trombone], Scott Brewer [bass], and Dave Purcell [drums]—entwine strands of grunge, gothic country, punk, folk, and rock as the soundtrack to stories steeped in cosmic horror, transformation, and transcendence. After building a cult following and raising tens of thousands of dollars on Kickstarter to launch their next chapter, Dust City Opera perfected this otherworldly vision on their independent second full-length album, Alien Summer.
