Stelth Ulvang never slows down. Even on stage as the multi-instrumentalist of The Lumineers, he dashes from piano to guitar, from drums to accordion. His solo music has been described as “raw and whimsical chamber folk” though at times enveloping just a simple folk song, bursting at the seams. His recordings stretch his melodies and lyrics, at it’s grandest, with a 20 piece chamber orchestra. Live, Stelth is mostly accompanied by his partner in crime, Dorota Szuta. Together they waltz around instruments, handing guitars or a bass back and forth, and building harmonies on tops of the trails of each others melodies. Dorota adds a lightness to his ferocity, and other times her violin tears rapidly through their raucous tunes. Inhabiting all edges of the stage, Stelth Ulvang puts on a hell of a performance of infectious storytelling bookended by shouts and murmurs of his many thoughts and explorations with nature, space, and people.
There is an intersection of song and spirit, pain and poetry, where musician and writer Alex Woodchek invites listeners to meet. She crafts songs out of Fort Collins, Colorado in pursuit of opening up expansive spaces for self-exploration and connection. Often found writing and performing with alternative indie-folk band Frail Talk, Woodchek explores new territory in her solo music endeavors, using the tools of guitar, melody, voice, and language to create a synthesized soundscape offering of gentleness and honesty.
