A stellar line-up of folk talents:

Vikesh Kapoor
Johanna Warren
Ora Cogan (Vancouver BC)

Three years ago, Vikesh Kapoor performed at Howard Zinn's memorial service in Boston, in front of Zinn's family and colleagues (including Noam Chomsky). Roused by Zinn's lifelong battle against class/race injustice, Kapoor spent the next two years in Portland, Oregon working on his full-length debut record. The Ballad Of Willy Robbins, a concept album loosely based on a newspaper article, chronicles the brutal but hopeful story of a working class man who slowly loses everything: ambitions, health, family and shelter. It's a worker's tale, less specific to the blue-collar life as it is about anyone struggling to make something of themselves.

The Ballad Of Willy Robbins, out now via Mama Bird Recording Co. (USA) and Loose Music (EU), was co-produced by Adam Selzer (M. Ward) and features Nate Query (Decemberists, Black Prairie) and Jeff Ratner (Langhorne Slim).
