LinksJeremy Garrett is known as an innovative fiddle player, expressive singer and creative songwriter in the GRAMMY Award-winning band, The Infamous Stringdusters, who broke onto the national scene in 2007, scooping up 3 International Bluegrass Music Association awards, including Album and Song of the Year. Since then, the group has become a national ambassador for progressive bluegrass, playing to club, theater and festival audiences around the country, and have hosted their own event, The Festy Experience—at which Jeremy’s production, the Garrett Grass Gospel Hour, offers a much-beloved highlight.

To fans of the Grammy-nominated “‘dusters,” he’s known as “G-Grass” or “Freedom Cobra” for his dynamic stage presence, but to his fellow artists and growing fan base, there’s another side, where songwriting and more intimate performances come to the fore. He has contributed several songs to the Stringdusters, including the title track for their 2014 album “Let It Go”, winning first place in the Folk category for the 2014 USA Songwriting Competition. His collaborations with other songwriters include Jon Weisberger, Josh Shilling, Becky Buller, Darrell Scott, John Pennell, and more.

Jeremy is a diverse entertainer performing in all-star line-ups and as a solo artist. Recently Jeremy has shifted his attention to a more intimate show highlighting his catalog of originally crafted songs accompanying him self on guitar, fiddle and mandolin. Jeremy likes to energize these intimate shows by weaving in hints of his fiddle science project, experimenting with electronic sound effects.

LinksTwo important events occurred during the making of White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood . I became "Simulated Reality" paranoid and I fell in LOVE.

Well a lot more happened during the process of writing and recording, but those are the two big ones. I also reached a healthy point of self-forgiveness for my failed marriage and became deeply educated in the lies of America the Great.

I feel like a switch was recently turned on in my brain and now I'm beginning to see through the lies that have been fed to me my whole life by the masters of media and by those who control and manipulate the narrative of our cultural identity and social order.

My paranoia began during the presidential election cycle and reached a dangerous peak shortly after the inauguration. In the meantime I watched and read countless works of art in a mad effort to be reminded of how many truly brilliant people there are living/struggling among us and to try to maintain a positive outlook. The works of Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Chris Kraus, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and the Autobiographies of Malcolm X and Mark E Smith were all great inspirations, to name a few.

Musically, I was very inspired by the extended dance mixes that people used to make for pop singles back in the ‘80s. It's so cool how a lot of the 80's hits had these really intricate and interesting longer versions that wouldn't get played on the radio and could only be heard in the clubs. I used that template with these tracks, I wanted them all to feel like the extended "club edit" of album tracks.

I also decided to abandon the "live band in a room" approach that I had been using on the recent albums and work more on my own or remotely with collaborators. I used the same drum sample packs throughout because I wanted the album to have a rhythmic continuity to it. I wanted the drums to have a strong and consistent identity, similar to how Prince's Linn Electronics LM-1 drum machine played such an important role on his classic albums. Zac Colwell also played a huge role on this album, adding saxophones and synths to most of the songs. I also got a lot of help from long time collaborators, and "of Montreal" touring members, Clayton Rychlik and JoJo Glidewell.

The two title concept came to me when I was thinking about how difficult it is to frame the message of a song with just one title, because so often the songs are about so many different subjects. ‘White Is Relic’ was inspired by James Baldwin’s writings regarding the creation and propagation of a toxic American White identity. I've come to learn how it's just a tool wielded by the 1% to give poor white people a false sense of superiority in an effort to keep the masses placated and numb to how deeply we're all getting fucked by our capitalist rulers. An ‘Irrealis Mood’ is a linguistic indicator that something isn't yet reality but does have the potential to become so.

I'm always searching for new identities so this concept of the death of "Whiteness" appeals to me greatly. Might be the only way to save the world.

Animal Years - “Caroline” (Official Music Video) Animal Years - "Friends" (Official Music Video) "We borrowed the name from a Josh Ritter album," Animal Years singer-songwriter-guitarist Mike McFadden says of his band's moniker. "Originally, we just liked the way the phrase sounded. But the more we thought about it, the more it meant to us, and we started saying things like 'Live your life in animal years.' If you knew that you'd only be around for a few years, you'd do things differently. That's how we try to operate as a band; we try to go for it every day, like we're gonna die tomorrow."

That level of urgency resonates throughout Far From Home, Animal Years' first eOne release. The five-song EP -- produced by Ryan Hadlock, renowned for his work with the Lumineers, Brandi Carlile and Vance Joy -- offers a consistently compelling distillation of the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Baltimore trio's irresistibly anthemic, unfailingly uplifting songcraft, which ranges from the fist-pumping infectiousness of "Caroline" to the introspective warmth of "Friends" to the bittersweet buoyancy of "Home (I Was Born)." McFadden's catchy, emotionally direct songwriting is matched by the band's exuberant performances, which combine McFadden's openhearted vocals and surging acoustic guitars with the punchy rhythmic kick of bassist Anthony Saladino and drummer Anthony Spinnato.

"Someone once described us in a review as 'singer-songwriter music with the amps turned up,'" McFadden notes. "The emphasis is on the songs and the songwriting, but we're definitely a rock band. Even if I'm playing an acoustic guitar, I'm playing it through an amp with the distortion on. We're always gonna be louder than the other bands on the bill."

Far From Home's memorable compositions and high-energy performances make it clear why Animal Years has already earned a fiercely loyal grass-roots fan base. Without the benefit of a mainstream record label, the band has built its audience the old-fashioned way: through dogged roadwork, winning over one fan at a time.

"When we moved to New York, we hit the city really hard, and things just grew organically," McFadden explains. "We naturally evolved from small clubs to bigger ones, and from small tours to bigger tours, with more people coming out each time. Everything has happened really organically, through us just being ourselves and trying to be as honest as we can."

The thee bandmates and producer Hadlock recorded Far From Home in the remote environs of Applehead Studios in Woodstock, NY, far from the band's normal urban surroundings.

"We really wanted to isolate ourselves in a place with no distractions other than making the record," McFadden explains. "So we all went up to Woodstock and worked in this great studio in a rebuilt barn. We've been demoing stuff for years, but this is the first time the three of us had made a record together. Ryan was really great to work with, and I think that he really brought out the best in us. It was great recording out there in the middle of nowhere; we'd record 12 hours a day, and then all hang out at night."

Far From Home showcases McFadden's knack for writing forthright songs that cut to the chase, lyrically and melodically. "On this EP, I wanted to write things that everyone can relate to," he asserts. "Sometimes lyrics can be open to interpretation, but for the most part I want people to know exactly what I'm talking about. All of these songs were written on the road, so a lot of the themes are about being away from home and missing people, and not taking people for granted.

"We had four songs that we really liked for the EP, but we knew that we needed one more that would really grab people's attention," he continues. "I was driving back from North Carolina, right at the end of a tour, and I wrote 'Caroline' in the car. Within ten minutes, I had pulled over to the side of the road and recorded the whole thing into my phone. A couple of days later, we made a rough demo, and everybody who heard it said 'Yeah, that's the one.' It's the song that got the attention of our record label, and now it's the first single from the EP."

The unpretentious attitude and hard-driving work ethic that define Animal Years were established early on, when Mike McFadden first began writing and performing his own songs in his mid-teens, releasing his first studio CD under his own name while still in high school in Baltimore. That inaugural effort won a good deal of attention, and even gained some local radio play. A second CD, released when McFadden was 18, was even better received by fans and local radio programmers, and soon his songs were being picked up for use in commercials from such advertisers as Coca-Cola and Pennzoil.

"That was the driver for me to think about quitting my job in Baltimore and going to New York to start Animal Years," McFadden recalls. "Before I moved to New York, I did another solo album, The Sun Will Rise. At that point, Anthony the bass player suggested that we find a drummer and make it into a band, so we rebranded the CD as an Animal Years release.

"It became a real band really quickly," McFadden reports. "When we started the band, we were all working jobs to raise money to make it happen, so we could afford to go on the road and into the studio. The guys started taking an equal part of the work, and everybody started contributing. It took some getting used to, but it was good not being alone and not having to do everything myself. The songwriting is still the same, because that's still me, but everyone's invested in this partnership and we're all getting something out of it."

Animal Years' timely relocation to New York proved to be a crucial turning point for the band. "The music scene in Baltimore is really big and varied, but I never felt like we ever really fit in there," says McFadden. "When we got to New York, we felt a lot more at home and got a much better reception. In New York, there're more people, there're more opportunities, there're more venues. You can play a few nights a week and still never run out of places to play."

Having already established themselves in their adopted hometown and having won a legion of new friends and fans on the road, Animal Years plan to continue doing what they do best: making music and touching people.

"We're planning on hitting the road super-hard," McFadden affirms. "We're definitely willing to put in the work, and make it happen by any means necessary. That's the only way you can do it these days. There are so many other people who are working as hard as you are, so you just have to work twice as hard."

Description:

Formed in 1995 by Makoto Kawabata at the same time as the Acid Mothers Temple Soul Collective. The group released its debut album in 1997 on PSF Records (Japan), and it was selected as one of the year's best albums in the The Wire magazine (UK). In 1998 the group played their first tours of the US and Europe. Since then the group has released a huge number of albums on labels from many different countries. As of 2017, the group has released around 80 albums. Every year since 1998, they have toured extensively in the US and Europe, and more recently have started performing around Asia and in Japan too. The group has performed in collaboration with many musicians including psychedelic originators Gong and Guru Guru, Simeon (Silver Apples), Nik Turner (Hawkwind), and the Occitanian trad sinder Rosina de Peira. Japanese collaborators have included Afrirampo, Tatsuya Yoshida (Ruins), Maso Yamazaki (Masonna), Seiichi Yamamoto (Boredoms), Jun Kuriyama (The Ox), and many others.To begin with the group had a floating line-up with contributions from many members of the AMT Soul Collective. But as tours became more frequent, the group began to coalesce around a core touring line-up. Other bands were created with Acid Mothers Temple as part of their name (AMT & The Cosmic Inferno, AMT SWR, AMT & The Space Paranoid, Acid Mothers Gong, Acid Mothers Guru Guru, etc.), but AMT & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. has continued to function as the mothership and main lineage for all our activities.In 2016, 21 years since the group's founding, there was a major shift in the line-up and "Next Generation" was added to the name. We now view the first 20 years as chapter one in our story, and we are now turning the page to start chapter two. The current touring line-up is: Makoto Kawabata (the sole original member), Hiroshi Higashi, MitsukoTabata, Nani Satoshima, and Wolf.

She is the songwriter, lead singer, and producer of the Asheville-based Americana group The Honeycutters. With The Honeycutters she has shared the stage with Guy Clark, Amy Ray, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Tony Rice, The Seldom Scene, Donna The Buffalo, Jill Andrews, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Jim Lauderdale, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Langhorne Slim. Her song "Little Bird" won First Place in The Great Lakes Songwriting Competition (2011) and Second Place in the General category in the Chris Austin Songwriting Contest at Merlefest (2011). The Honeycutters fifth studio album, Amanda Anne Platt and the Honeycutters, features thirteen of Platt's original compositions and has been met with critical acclaim across the USA, Canada and the UK. “Platt’s voice is fair magical. Clearly annunciated, every word is infused with poetic loveliness, made all the more appealing for the slight twang that causes syllables to rise and fall at the end of lines. Like Joy Lynn White once upon a time and Zoe Muth more recently, Platt can sing of desperation and despair while retaining pride of steel… throughout On the Ropes Platt delivers personal devastation that touches universally.”-- Donald Teplyske, Lonesome Road Review"Amanda Anne Platt has a voice that’s complex, sweet and aching. Even more potently, she writes songs that folks are citing as up there with the best of the field, such as Mary Gauthier and Lucinda Williams.”-- Craig Havighurtst, Music City Roots Host

with Corey Kent White
After moving to Nashville from his blue-collar hometown in Western Pennsylvania, Moakler first established his foothold as a songwriter in Music City with cuts by Ashley Monroe, Jake Owen, Ben Rector, and perhaps most notably, Dierks Bentley (Riser). In 2017, Moakler released his fourth studio album, Steel Town, an album that celebrated the hardworking people where he grew up. Moakler was called an in-demand artist by Taste of Country, and has earned recognition by more than 20 outlets as an artist to watch, including CMT, Huffington Post, Nashville Lifestyles, Rolling Stone Country and more. Steel Town, with more than 15 million combined streams, produced fan-favorite Suitcase that People Magazine called romantically honest, Love Drunk that AXS called intoxicating and the title track that Rolling Stone Country called a wistful, mid-tempo acoustic ballad [that] pays tribute to the resilient people of his hometown just south of Pittsburgh: the factories they work in, the bars they unwind in, and the solace they take in their community.

with Jess Williamson
Loma's self-titled debut reveals a band obsessed with songs as sound. There are endless details to discover here, stoked by the album's urgent and searching lyrical themes (exquisitely delivered by the translucent voice of Emily Cross); and on headphones, the album feels both intimate and expansive, like casting your eyes over a detailed painting on a vast canvas.It's also the product of a joint pilgrimage around the globe by fellow touring musicians. Jonathan Meiburg is best known as the singer of Shearwater; Cross and the multi-instrumentalist and engineer Dan Duszynski form Cross Record, originally from Chicago. They met through Ben Goldberg (of Badabing! records, who helped launch the careers of Tune-Yards, Beirut, and Sharon Van Etten), who sent Meiburg Cross Record's 2015 album Wabi-Sabi, which led to the two bands traveling together across America and Europe throughout Shearwater's 2016 tour for Jet Plane and Oxbow, often crammed into the same van. The tour was Cross Record's first, but Meiburg was shocked by their maturity and confidence. "I couldn't believe all that sound was coming out of two people," he says. "They had their own world, their own rules, and they slayed every night. They were mesmerizing."While in the van or at soundchecks, they shared their musical knowledge and love of nature and animals. "I think Jonathan is one of the most special people we've ever met," says Cross. "It's hard not to like him. He has such a curious mind." And after an especially memorable show in Belgium, Meiburg approached Cross and Duszynski about working together. "I fell in love with their music," he admits, "and I wanted to know how they did it."They convened for two weeks in the house outside Austin where Cross Record recorded Wabi-Sabi to see what would happen, recording "Joy", the gorgeously ambivalent "I Don't Want Children", and the beginnings of five more songs. An album seemed surprisingly imminent. "There was something special about the combination of the three of us," Meiburg says, "and very different from either of our bands. But I think we were afraid to say so out loud, for fear of jinxing it."For the next few months, they convened for two weeks at a time, shaping new songs and casting away others. It was a strangely charged time, not least because when the album began, Cross and Duszynski were a married couple, but their relationship came to an end during the sessions-an atmosphere Meiburg found challenging but strangely inspiring. "There was no drama where I was concerned," he recalls, "and I didn't really know what was happening; but there was an unspoken feeling of urgency, and a sense that a big change was coming for all of us, and I think we all tried to channel that into the work." The house was out in the country, off a dirt road, surrounded by the sounds of birds and wind; and it seemed like a world of its own-full of joy, fear, and heartbreak.The place itself became the album's muse. "I got sort of obsessed with capturing every sound inside and outside the house," recalls Meiburg. ("Remember the whippoorwills?" asks Cross; Meiburg doesn't know offhand if they made it into the album or not). From the cicadas and frogs of "Relay Runner" to the whooshes of wind and leaves on "White Glass" and "Black Willow", Loma often sounds as if you're not so much listening to it as living inside it. "The 'dog solo' on 'Sun Dogs' is one of my favorite moments," Meiburg says; "and I remember Emily making a drum out of the cast-iron pot we cooked breakfast in. There were no rules; nobody was the designated drummer, or the bass player, or the guitarist. This freedom from their usual roles gave the trio a fresh rulebook to invent from. "Jonathan's melodies were so different from the ones I'd choose," says Cross. "He has a rich knowledge of songwriting. My approach is more unrefined and experimental, and it created a strong balance."Meiburg had never written for someone else before. "What a relief!" he laughs. "I was scared at first, but I tried to project myself into things I imagined Emily might say, or sing, or think-and in the end we landed on a voice that's not quite her-but it's not me either." Cross, meanwhile, found a freedom in singing someone else's words. "Usually vocals are scary for me," she says, "but since I didn't feel like I had to present entirely as myself, I felt open to doing things I wouldn't normally do." The album became a place where buried thoughts and energies found expression; Cross wrung catharsis from Meiburg's lyrics and melodies while Duszynski buried himself in the sonic details of engineering and mixing (and conjured up some catharsis of his own in the hammering drums of "Dark Oscillations").The process also helped Cross locate a voice she'd never found before. While tracking "I Don't Want Children," her vocals were accidentally recorded at the wrong speed, and when played back, they were pitched slightly lower and slower than normal, yielding a voice that was recognizably hers, but deeper and more coarse-grained-a sound she decided to use for the rest of the album.This sense of discovery extends to the listener; at times, Loma almost seems to be listening to you. But it doesn't sound small, or hushed; "Dark Oscillations" and "Jornada" have a gritty, futuristic grandeur, and there's also the loping groove of "Relay Runner", the galloping euphoria of "Joy", and the resolutely ambiguous choir of "Black Willow." "The album is a journey," muses Meiburg, "but we didn't know where we were going until we arrived." The journey's end came with a surprising lesson. "It's about having to let some precious things go," Meiburg says, "so that new ones can take their place."

How does your ordinary life reflect a larger human narrative? In this one-day creative nonfiction workshop we will consider how our own experiences have been shaped by social, cultural, and political dynamics, and the ways our writing can affirm or disrupt well-established accounts.  We will explore how to handle memory, archival documents, diaries, letters, photographs, and oral history (you will be asked to bring in specific material). Writing prompts will help you transform traditional and unconventional research into vibrant prose and offer both introspection and an outward gaze in your work.  This will be a hands-on workshop where you will generate new writing, share your work, and respond to the writing of others. To guide our discussions and writing, we will read short essays by innovative authors such as Patricia Smith, Bernard Cooper, Kiese Laymon, and Peggy Shumaker, to see how these writers transform broad events into compelling and intimate narratives.   As an add-on, students may purchase individual coaching sessions with the instructor on Sunday morning, April 29, 2018.  To register by check instead of via Eventbrite, mail your check to Flatiron Writers Room, LLC, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your payment, space permitting. Catina Bacote is an essayist and memoirist. She contributed an essay to the new anthology This Is The Place: Women Writing About Home that was selected as an editor’s choice for the New York Times Book Review. Her nonfiction has also appeared in the Gettysburg Review, TriQuarterly, Tin House, Ploughshares, The Common, The Sun, the Southern California Review, and elsewhere. Her writing has been supported by the Ann Cox Chambers Long-form Journalism Fellowship from MacDowell Colony and the Alice Judson Hayes Social Justice Fellowship from Radgale. She holds a MA from Teachers College, Columbia University and a MFA from the University of Iowa, where she was admitted as a Dean’s Fellow and subsequently served as the Provost’s Visiting Writer in Nonfiction. She teaches creative writing at Warren Wilson College. At 6pm April 28, 2018, at the Flatiron Writers Room, Catina Bacote and co-contributors Lina Cabeza-Vanegas and Naima Coster will host a free public reading from the anthology This Is The Place: Women Writing About Home (Seal Press 2017).  Refund and Cancelation Policy The Flatiron Writers Room reserves the right to cancel this workshop if not enough people sign up, in which case you will receive a full refund.

Babies can communicate in a variety of ways - crying, gesturing, and eventually first words. However, in the early stages of language development it can be frustrating to understand and effectively communicate with our small children. Sign language can be a great catalyst for two-way communication between parents and children, but knowing what signs to use, how to elicit signs, and what children are capable of can be overwhelming. Join me, Xochitl Skora, for a fun, informative, and hands-on sign language class. This class will discuss the theory behind sign language communication with children, ways to engage in active play with your kids, and introduce signs to better communicate with your child. This class will provide an opportunity for hands-on practice and guidance. Xochitl Skora has worked with children for over 15 years in the capacity of preschool teacher and bilingual speech language pathology assistant. She holds Associates in General Education and Speech Language pathology Assistant as well as a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. While sign language can be used by caregivers with children of all ages, for the purpose of this class we recommend that babies age 9 months and older attend with a caregiver. Parents/caregivers of newborn to 9 months of age are eligible to attend as well to learn how to begin implementation of sign language in your home.
