In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, and most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know," the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura’s voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today’s burnished sheen.

Scott Wolfson and Other Heroes are fast making a name for themselves as New Jersey's indie folk powerhouse. From beginnings in 2011, they have launched into success both on the air and on the ground: their debut album, Life on Fire,reached #8 on the Roots Music Report charts and stands at #162 on Folk DJ's list of most-played 2014 albums, and the band has appeared onstage at the Philadelphia Folk Fest, in studios including WFUV with John Platt, and as an Emerging Artist at the 2015 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and voted Most Wanted Artist for the 2016 festival.

With their 2016 release, Welcoming the Flood, they stand ready to broaden that success, expanding both the lyrical imagery of Scott’s songwriting and the big, catchy, complex sound of the band. Reviewers have dubbed them “musical scamps,” “the future of folk rock,” and “an Indie Folk music that could work on street corners or big stages.” Keep an eye out for them on stages, in house concerts, or at festivals near you!

“They’ve kicked it up another notch…. The band continues to mature and even the quieter songs carry a bit more drama. As the songs continue to spill out of Scott Wolfson’s fertile imagination, they keep getting more infectious and intriguing.” –Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live in NYC

"Scott Wolfson & Other Heroes is a talent-laden band. They're equally comfortable going electric or acoustic, and Welcoming the Flood is full of well-crafted songs that reveal new insights with repeated listening." –John Platt, WFUV
