Hemlock is the “phone-fi” bedroom folk project of swamp-raised musician Carolina Chauffe and various collaborators, currently based in Chicago, IL. Often bare-boned and bittersweet, this is means-to-an-end modern-day folk art for the eager-hearted. A practice of gratitude to the here and now, swaying with rich sun-glinted harmonies and tender finger-picking. A delicate and captivating sonic collage of memories. An experiment of honest vulnerability, with open arms. Their recent release, ‘talk soon’, is an interstate saga guided along by voicemails and spanning cross-country moves, reimagined relationships, and an ever-evolving idea of home. Pull up a chair and stay a while.
Allegra Krieger is a New York-based songwriter & composer. With emotive lyricism and explorative harmony, her songs are at once cathartic and compelling. She lives in a 5th floor walk-up apartment in Chinatown, and writes mostly in the morning with the windows open. She works as a bartender in the evening and prefers to walk to work. She likes most things that are likeable, and some things that are objectionable. Allegra was born in Pennsylvania, moved to Florida, back to Pennsylvania, and has since spent significant time in California, North Carolina, and many other places that she can’t remember, before settling in the city of apples and tall structures. Structure is imperative to Allegra’s creative process, like stairs are to a staircase. The truth is, I am Allegra, and I really don’t have much more to say. Writing and making music is my greatest love. Thank You!
