Opener: Joselyn & Don – soulful modern folk
Montana natives turned Angelenos, Joselyn & Don’s intoxicating music feels like a walk through mountain wildflowers and Southern California Joshua trees. Enter their wild garden – where blues, folk and jazz form an understory illuminated with lyrical truth. Joselyn Wilkinson and Don Barrozo forage musical ideas from many sources and plant those seeds in rich Americana soil. The duo’s debut album “Soar” received positive press and airplay from over 100 radio stations across the U.S. Their upcoming EP “Seeds & Bones” digs deep into modern roots with an urgency born of truth seeking.
