Wes Swing is a cellist, singer, composer, and songwriter from Charlottesville, Virginia. In live performance, he uses electronic looping, where deliberately sparse and stark instrumentation and sections of intimate and personal performance transition into electronic escapades and flourishing crescendos.
"The compositions, pieced together very carefully, are orchestral without orchestra. They are movements, and they are moving. They take place in that grey area between pop and symphonic." - No Depression.

DIANE CLUCK (dianecluck.info) a singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music based in Charlottesville, Virginia. She employs singing as a healing, textural experience in which audiences may wander, ponder, or simply be. Her vocal style has been noted for its clipped, glottal beauty, and described by NPR as "an unlikely mix of Aaron Neville, the Baka people, and Joni Mitchell--unaffected yet unusual".
Diane contributed to New York's burgeoning Antifolk scene in the early 2000s. Since then, singer-songwriters Laura Marling, Florence Welch (of Florence And The Machine), and Sharon Van Etten have cited Diane's work as influential.
