California native, Nicki Bluhm recently made the move from her home of San Francisco to Nashville, TN, re-invigorated as a songwriter and now embarking on her second decade releasing albums and diversifying her live performances. Stepping out on her own with the 2018 release “To Rise You Gotta Fall” (produced by Matt Ross-Spang) and playing in these different live formats has lended to bright-eyed takes of her deep existing catalogue while introducing exciting new and unreleased material for the future.
Jeremiah Lockwood is a scholar and a storyteller; a singer, guitarist and composer with an expansive knowledge of musical traditions and techniques that stretch from the Piedmont blues to the cantorial synagogues of his youth. His work engages with issues arising from peering into the archive and imagining the power of “lost” forms of expression to articulate keenly felt needs in the present. As noted above, his music career began with over a decade of apprenticeship to Carolina Slim, playing in the subways of New York City, and he also trained under his grandfather Cantor Jacob Konigsberg. Lockwood’s band, the Sway Machinery, seeks inspiration from diverse realms of experience related to the cultural geography of New York City. Lockwood received his PhD from the Stanford University Graduate School of Education Concentration in Jewish Studies in 2021.
