Forest Veil (formerly known as Moniker) is the solo project of multi-instrumentalist/producer Monica Metzler, based in Portland, Oregon. Following the echoes of her elusive muse, Forest Veil makes mystical “doom-folk” that maps the emotional terrain of humanity and its place in the cosmos. Melding a voice that sounds like smokey quartz with psychedelic riffs and enigmatic lyricism, Forest Veil’s sound evokes a haunting nostalgia for other worlds and connects her in a web of resonating strings to the troubadours of time. Metzler has self-released two previous albums- Minor Key (2010) and The Cruelest Month (2014) - under the name Moniker. In 2016, she helped found Portland-based record label Spirit House, whose mission is to empower female and non-binary voices as a counterweight to the male-dominated music industry.

Alt-folk songwriter from Edinburgh (Scotland), Faith Eliott, is touring in the US this summer, covering the West Coast and much of the upper Midwest. In 2016, Song, By Toad Records released Faith’s debut EP, 'Insects', which Third Outing called “one of the best recent acoustic releases in Scottish music” and When You Motor Away described as “lo fi, raw, and at times experimental.” Faith’s songs are often narrative, drawing from personal experiences as well as subjects like natural history and mythology. On attending one of Faith’s shows, you can expect to hear stories about love, giant sea sponges, soviet space dogs and the inevitability of death.

"Brenna Sahatjian’s music stitches together the shameless truth-telling of a (not quite) reformed juvenile delinquent, and the passion of an ernest, knife wielding, botany-loving, queer feminist. She brings her magic and musical genius to several different collaborative projects (which are always amazing), but her solo work will have you weeping the name of your continuation-high-school crush, waking up in fields of overgrown berries, and hearing songs in the tired howls of a city at sunrise. Brenna’s musical genius interrogates systems of oppression in ways that, to me, truly defines art-activism." -Annah Anti-Palidrome
