On Your Radar - July 9, 2019

Eighteen-year-old Quentin Callewaert has only been on the music scene for a few years now, but he is creating a major buzz as one of the most gifted guitarists around. Classically trained, Quentin’s interest in fingerstyle acoustic guitar was inspired by Doc Watson, Merle Travis and Tommy Emmanuel. He is also a gifted singer with a refreshingly bluesy voice that compliments his blend of Americana, gospel and bluegrass.

Karyn Oliver is part Joan Osborne, a touch of Janis Joplin and a bit of Emmylou Harris - her seductive voice effortlessly oscillates from bluesy soul to country and back. Oliver's new album, "A List Of Names," is currently charting on both Folk (#8 in February!) and Americana radio. "The fire of a Folk musician is at the heart of the stories on 'A List of Names.' (The CD) shifts sounds, blending diverse styles guided by the vocal drive of Karyn Oliver." (The Alternate Root)

“Folk that makes you feel stuff” is exactly what Ash & Eric L’Esperance set out to create through their collaborative project, The Promise is Hope. Their music marries two distinctly talented songwriters. Ashley?s airy and intoxicating tone blends beautifully with Eric?s sweet, deep voice. With tightly woven harmonies, two acoustic guitars, and intimate songwriting, the pair presents a beautifully moving, inspired & connected live set. PopMatters says, “The L’Esperances have found their unique path within the storied tradition.”
