"Mitchell is a skilled storyteller...and her delivery gives an emotional complexity that welcomes and even demands repeated listens." Pitchfork
"Currently a well-kept secret, Mitchell is writing material that stands comparison with the great singer-songwriters of the past few decades" Daily Telegraph
Anaïs Mitchell is a Vermont and Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter who comes from the world of narrative folksong, poetry and balladry. She recorded for Ani Difranco's Righteous Babe Records for several years before starting her own Wilderland label in 2012. Among her recorded works are six full-length albums, including 2010's sensationally-reviewed Hadestown, a folk opera based on the Orpheus myth; 2012's Young Man in America, which was described by the UK's Independent as 'an epic tale of American becoming'; and 2013's Child Ballads, a collaboration with Jefferson Hamer, which won a BBC Radio Two Folk Award for Best Traditional Track.
Mitchell has headlined shows worldwide as well as supporting tours for Bon Iver, Ani Difranco, The Low Anthem (all of whom appear as guest singers on Hadestown) Josh Ritter and Punch Brothers. Her stage production of Hadestown, which was ten years in the making, opened Off-Broadway in May 2016 to rave reviews. The New York Times called it "inventive, beguiling and spellbinding" while Vogue announced that "Hadestown will be your new theater obsession". The show was extended twice as a result of critical success and sell-out performances
Moonheart
Moonheart
Moonheart is an electro-folk duo made up of singer/guitarist Kim Mayo and producer/keyboardist Michael Sachs. Together, they create a sound at once surreal and deeply personal; Mayo’s intimate storytelling and warm, eclectic vocals blended with Sachs’s lush, driving production bend and weave to create a sound at once deeply familiar and refreshingly new. Based in Brooklyn, the duo crystallized in the Winter of 2015, and released their first EP, Blow, in October 2016. The trio of songs, connected in their minimalism, romance, and nostalgia, have been described by The Line of Best Fit as "an eerie delight that leaves the listener prying for more,” and as a collection of “tender pop songs that drift between genres effortlessly” by Gold Flake Paint. They are currently working on their first LP.
