At fifteen, Dead Horses frontwoman Sarah Vos’ world turned upside down. Raised in a strict, fundamentalist home, Vos lost everything when she and her family were expelled from the rural Wisconsin church where her father had long served as pastor. What happened next is the story of Dead Horses’ stunning album, My Mother the Moon, a record full of trauma and triumph, despair and hope, pain and resilience.
Blending elements of traditional roots with contemporary indie folk, Dead Horses writes music that is both familiar and unexpected, unflinchingly honest in its portrayal of modern American life, yet optimistic in its unshakable faith in brighter days to come.
Described by NPR Music as “evocative, empathetic storytelling,” My Mother the Moon earned a spot in No Depression‘s “Best Roots Music Albums of 2018” list, and Rolling Stone Country declared the Wisconsin-based duo an “Artist You Need to Know.”Fletcher Magellan
Fletcher Magellan plays Cosmic Country. What’s that mean, anyway? This Minneapolis-based six-piece draws influence, instruments, and imagery from gospel, R&B, and psychedelic rock along with both kinds of music (country and western). “Fletch” has performed at Mid West Music Fest in Winona, Big Turn Music Fest in Red Wing, and Kantishna Music Festival in Denali National Park, Alaska (where members Cody Fitzpatrick and Emmalyn Kayser spend their summer months). Fletch is currently recording their second full-length album that Cody wrote about his experiences in the 49th State.
