The music of Dallas Ugly is anything but what the name implies. Libby Weitnauer, Eli Broxham, and Owen Burton’s fusion of pop country and indie-folk rock is heartfelt and intimate. Dallas Ugly’s work incorporates Burton’s unique rolling electric guitar style, Weitnauer’s expert fiddle playing, and the songwriting of all three members. Plain-faced and striking vocals reflect their collective influences of old time, country, and bluegrass music, while their arrangements and songwriting point away to other genres. Dallas Ugly recorded their full length debut album in April of 2021 and is making plans for a release.
Joybird is Chicago songwriter and fiddler/multi-instrumentalist Jess McIntosh. Backed by Chicago’s busiest traditional and experimental musicians, Jess writes songs informed by her background in social work and her time living in both the heart of Appalachia and the City of Big Shoulders. The band creates music that is “…at times playful, at times immersed in longing…fiercely hopeful and deeply communal.” -Abigail Zimmer (Author of girls their tongues).
“An excellent storyteller…with an impressively direct and matter of fact way of looking at our world today.” -Laura Land (Chicago Crowd Surfer)
