FRANCES CONE is Christina Cone, Andrew Doherty and Aaron Hamel. The Nashville based soulful indie-pop band, fronted by Christina Cone, is named after Christina's father and great-grandfather, both musicians themselves in South Carolina and both born on September 11th. The band has been praised for their compelling, emotional live show and captivating recordings. In 2016, Frances Cone released, "Arizona," the first single from their forthcoming full-length album which is set to release in early 2019. Stereogum praised Arizona for Cones melodic vocals, rich harmonies, and an electrifying guitar sound." Written about her brother, filmmaker Stephen Cone, "Arizona's" reach has extended far and wide at 10 million streams on Spotify.
Most recently, NPR's All Songs Considered premiered "Unraveling" a timely and cathartic song about the "ways life conspires to overwhelm". It solidifies the band's commitment to a sound creating a "sweet slow burn in which songs build gradually and carefully into something truly grand. "The gorgeous "Unraveling" really gets at what works about Frances Cone's music: Each cooed "ooooh" is in the exact right place, weaving together to form a warm and hypnotic tapestry."
Acme Records presents Jake Fussell (Paradise Of Bachelors), Allschwang / Krause Duo (Hello Death, Collections of Colonies of Bees, Altos) and James Elkington (also on Paradise Of Bachelors, member of Brokeback and also of Steve Gunn's touring band).
Wisconsin-based musicians perform Tom Hamilton's newest composition, "City of Vorticity" for Woodland Pattern's Alternating Currents Live series. Participating artists will include:
Rick Aaron - flute
Marielle Allschwang - violin
Jon Mueller - percussion
Steve Nelson-Raney - saxophone
