Hailing from the post-industrial shores of Cleveland, OH, Maxwell Stern has been writing music and touring since his teenage years in the mid-2000s. Now located in Philadelphia, he has released a slew of LPs and 7"s, and has played shows pretty much everywhere including an abandoned restaurant in Wyoming, a mall in China, several squats in Germany, and a pretty nice bookstore in Australia. His first proper solo LP "Impossible Sum" was released in September of 2020 and features pedal steel contributions from Mike Brenner of Magnolia Electric Company.
For more than twenty years, critically acclaimed songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer Anna Rose has toured the United States headlining powerfully intimate shows and opening for an array of illustrious global acts. Time on the road, and in the studio for her three impassioned full-length studio albums, has honed her song-crafting skills and fueled the storytelling fire that burns within this Nashville-based, New York and LA-raised independent artist. Rose transforms cross-genre influences—which range from classic rock to alternative-indie, pop and country—into concise contemporary tracks built upon dynamic, often bombastic vocals and expert musicianship.
