ABOUT

Raised in the mountains of Montana and making a home on the road, Ira Wolf's music and writing are vulnerably honest as she explores heartache, homesickness, and the highs and lows of an unconventional wandering lifestyle. She draws from personal experience and connects on an intimate level with her audience through her truthful lyrics and melancholy vocals.

Since she began touring in 2014, Ira has earned more than 100 million plays on Spotify, performed across six continents, and shared stages with artists such as Penny and Sparrow, Dead Man Winter, Adeem the Artist, David Ramirez, and Andrea von Kampen. She’s been featured for her songwriting and vocal style at Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Americanafest, and Midwest Music Fest, and continues to travel the U.S. while living full time in a camper van.

After releasing her third album, The Closest Thing to Home, Ira took a step away from music to focus on her mental health and other passions. She recently finished recording her highly-anticipated fourth studio record, Rock Bottom, and began releasing singles in anticipation of the album release October 13th. Ira plans to continue touring both nationally and internationally in the coming months.

Absentier (@absentier) is a solo venture of Gentle Temper's Rymy.  Dovetailing a lofty Jeff Buckley vocal texture and fingerstyle similar to Hozier, Absentier writes atmospheric love songs to connect with.  The love is for partners, friends, family, and those you will meet.

Singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Cooper Formant (Wastelander) crafts reflective, folk-tinged indie-rock with a flair for vintage chamber pop. Equally at home strumming vulnerable ballads as he is launching into surreal rock interludes, he weaves together a sepia landscape of layered guitars, amber tenor vocals, avant-garde horns, baroque Mellotron passages, and tripped-out pedal steel stomp and holler sing-alongs all while maintaining pure-hearted melodic poise. At times heartbreakingly honest and other times trolling and impish, Wastelander creates simultaneously intimate and expansive music.

Wastelander is Formant’s first foray as a solo artist. Currently based in Portland, Maine, by way of Brooklyn, he has been splitting his time in East Nashville as of late to develop his emerging project. His debut album, "What is Left of Me," was released on Sept. 29, 2023, and received accolades from Glide Magazine, Under the Radar magazine, AmericanaUK, Vents, Various Small Flames, and others. 

On Oct 14, 2023, Formant released a bonus EP titled "Feed the Ducks" of unreleased home recordings and demos to supplement the debut album. These home recordings show a grittier lo-fi pop aesthetic that calls to mind more classic surrealist alt-pop like Beck and Sparklehorse.
