“Reddenhollow songs have a way of wrapping around one’s life. Truly listening to them feels like stepping into a river. The separation between Taylor Moses’s melody, story and my own heart disappears and before I can articulate or understand it, the songs speak my own story - a witness to my secret grief and to my rising dreams. I would like to turn my body into smoke, mist, rain, light and let these songs take me somewhere sacred.
The unique timbre, grit and depth to Taylor’s voice sounds something ancient. In this collection of songs, Taylor takes us on one journey. The soft moments are so beautifully fragile that they allow me to walk through them while wounded, and suddenly throughout, Taylor’s voice takes us and the loving resolve and almost righteous anger become enough to pull us out of our suffering and onto ever present ground.”
Midwest folk-rocker Allison Mahal is known for her “powerful voice” and “knack for heartbreaking lyrics” (NPR). On her new album, Not Over This Yet, Mahal is ready to confront the past with brutal honesty and tender consideration. The ten tracks play out like thumbing through a photo album, some snapshots burnt at the edges, blurry and overexposed, others are intricately framed, capturing first impressions of what has grown into a golden-light love. Her latest singles have earned her placements on both Apple Music and Amazon playlists, and the album has garnered attention from the likes of Under The Radar and Consequence of Sound, who wrote, “it feels as though she’s stepped into some of her own power.”
Milwaukee Wisconsin group Hello Death Walks the edge of the folk genre with heart wrenching cinematic compositions.
