The musical project of Seattle-based singer/songwriter Luke Culbertson, Lofty Stills envelopes the listener in lush instrumentation and yearning tenor vocals, akin to contemporaries Ryan Adams, Sufjan Stevens, and Night Beds. In 2015, Lofty Stills released the crushing single "Every Fight," a blend of rich synths and poignant folk songwriting, providing a new platform of sound for Culbertson. Currently hard at work on a debut EP slated for release in early 2016, Lofty Stills will prove that their dreamy, aching, country-flavored alt-pop has a way of capturing a wide audience with a sense of adventure, exalted calmness, and faraway dreams.
Little Mountains, the project of veteran singer/songwriter E. Hanson, will open the night with gorgeous indie folk tunes, singing of memories, fellowship, and forging a path through separation. Their debut EP "Colossal" was just released on Crooked Antler.
