Austin Stirling is a singer and a songwriter with various sounds up his sleeve. Formerly known from touring over the last several years as “The Hangdog Hearts”, he took all his traveling experience into the studio, consolidated it with some southern-fried focus, and created his debut solo album SALVE. A driven accumulation of fire and brimstone, floated with whiskey and gasoline.
Eliza Thorp is an up-and-coming Singer/Songwriter to the Northern Michigan area. In her youth she grew up listening and dancing in the kitchen with her Mom to the likes of Carol King, Diana Krall and lots of Simon and Garfunkel. She credits her Grandmother, Peg, for instilling a deep love for the piano and grew up playing on the very upright her Grandmother used to play. Eliza often finds inspiration for her songs in her daily adventures outside with her dog, Mia. You can sometimes hear the sound of her favorite trails woven within her songs if you listen closely.
