Dirtwire
Dirtwire
Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a gris-gris of sound with an amalgamation of traditional instrumentation, global percussion, and electronic soundscapes. Comprised of multi-instrumentalist David Satori and Evan Fraser, the result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness.
Moontricks
Moontricks
Nested in the Kootenay mountains of British Columbia, Canada, comes a duo that captures the roots of their rugged home with the timbre of old soul, blending a timeless sound that goes by the name of Moontricks.

They has proven to be one of the best secret treasures in the festival and live show circuit. Their sound represents a cutting edge blend of folk and electronic, blues and soul, and features live guitar, banjo, keys, and vocals making them both a standout live act and studio act.

The duo have their own original style of boot-stomping grassroots blues meets underground bass music. This catchy sound blends in unison creating a brand of folklore that has crowds ranting and raving throughout the west coast. Moontricks meshes together classic genres with modern cutting edge production. Their unique and distinct sound ensures an emotional and enthusiastically engaging musical experience. Every performance is richly unique to wherever their inspiration takes them and the crowd ignites in them, together, getting high on the vibes and lost in the music.

Artist Bio
Tone Ranger (AKA Alex Simon) makes dance music that embodies the mysterious and supernatural beauty of the American Southwest. Uniting light and shadow, chaos and order, future and retro, he weaves wild electronic compositions designed for the dance floor. His live shows are unique and deeply moving – integrating ethereal lap steel, whistling, and vocal elements over solid tantalizing grooves. His new self-titled EP, released with Jumpsuit Records, is available on all streaming platforms.

Having spent the last two years living and working in Native nations across the Plains and the Southwest, Simon is inspired primarily by the American landscape and the stories that come from it. In 2016, while in Standing Rock, he founded a recording project called Sovereign Sounds, where he brings recording materials and knowledge to Indigenous communities in hopes of preserving songs, stories and languages and deepening creativity amongst the youth.

With such a violent history and divisive present, America needs to heal from the inside out. The music of Tone Ranger is a deep exploration of the joy, beauty, truth, and mystery of the land we stand on and a prayer that we can move forward and heal together.
