A pair of sharp-witted songwriters with captivating stage presence
Critical acclaim has been consistent and enthusiastic over the years for Peter Mulvey.

The Boston Globe sums it up, "His voice feels like fine old leather, and his guitar sounds like it's on steroids... a superb technician..."

Mulvey has developed a strong national following in the indie folk/rock scene through his relentless touring and prolific discography. He is best known for his warmly wry songwriting and his intense percussive guitar style.

He began as a self-described "city kid" from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He played, wrote, and sang in bands while studying theatre at Marquette University. After graduating, he traveled to Ireland, where he learned the trade of busker on the streets of Dublin. Returning to the U.S. a few years later, he settled in Boston, building an audience through street and subway performing, while also immersing himself in the thriving musical community.

Mulvey has amassed a catalog of inventive albums with creative approach to lyrics and musicality.

Song Samples: What Else Is It
John Elliott writes gripping stream-of-consciousness songs that often take unexpected turns en route to delivering a powerful message. Chuck Schiele of The San Diego Troubadour wrote about Elliott's lyrics: "They get in, make their statement, kick you in the teeth, and get out before they start talking too much...And this lends to the urge of rolling any track to its beginning for another spin."

A native of Minnesota who now resides in California, Elliott began playing at various Hollywood venues in 2001 and had expanded throughout southern California by 2003, and later became a nationally touring artist. His music has been featured on hit TV shows including Grey's Anatomy and Californication, as well as in PASTE Magazine, on NPR and Neil Young's "Living With War" website.

Elliott first performed for us in 2012 along with friends, collaborators, and fellow emerging artists Anthony da Costa and Raina Rose. The trio was the subject of a documentary film called Folk, which details a year in the lives of up-and-coming performing songwriters.

"stylistic melancholy tone and charisma." - The San Diego Troubadour
