When you think of trendy musical scenes, Portland, Maine might not be first on your list. Yet the homespun, heartwarming music of family-oriented indie folk group GoldenOak provides evidence that the dense woods of the Pine Tree State might just be a better muse than the slick streets of New York and LA.
GoldenOak is driven by the songwriting and harmonies of the brother-sister duo Zak and Lena Kendall. After a bit of a recording hiatus and a shift in personnel, the group is back with an enchanting pair of songs. “River” and “Poet And The Painter” find this collective simultaneously building on previous strengths while also reaching out in an interesting new direction.
Eliza Edens is a Berkshires-bred, Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter. Combining adventurous fingerpicking with a knack for heart-tugging melody, Eliza writes songs that swell into meditations on memory, nature, time, love, and loss — belonging somewhere between your tumbledown front porch stoop and a hazy bar in the city. She is a grantee of Club Passim’s 2017 Iguana Music Fund and has shared stages with Sarah Lee Guthrie and The Suitcase Junket. Her debut record ‘Time Away From Time’ is expected in spring 2020.
