Dan & the Wildfire
Dan & the Wildfire
Dan and the Wildfire is a particularly potent cocktail comprised of 1 part old time mountain folk, 1 part classic rock and roll, and 3 parts bottom shelf bourbon. Mix it up and what you get is a musical experience that burns it's way into your bones and lights up your soul with a crisp, rootsy sound that'll leave you reeling for another taste of that Wildfire. This Boston based band was started by guitarist and singer-songwriter Dan HL in 2011 with trumpeter Thom Brennan and Keyboardist Matt Hines under the auspices of forging a softer, folk sound. Their sound grew beyond the folk boundary when bassist Sam Katz joined the band. To date, Dan and the Wildfire have played all over New England, Washington D.C., out to Chicago and burned down every place in between. Their third studio album 'Bull Moose', released in March of 2015, is the next chapter in the evolution of the folk, rock experience. Their well received second album 'Smoke Signals' is available worldwide and follows their debut album, 'Nothing, Anything, Everything' released under the moniker 'Dan HL' in 2011.

Erica Leigh
Bio: Boston-based Erica Leigh is an ASCAP & SESAC award-winning singer-songwriter, whose fans describe as a mesh between Paula Cole, Sara Bareilles & Imogen Heap. Her lyrically-driven songwriting is both heartfelt and honest, inspired by human experiences of vulnerability and self-discovery - in particular, she is driven as an artist by her recent experience as a cancer survivor. Deli Magazine says "Erica Leigh, is not only a singer/songwriter with an exceptional talent. She is also an uplifting figure in the community, a source of hope for those who share in her struggle." 2-time Grammy award-winning producer Ben Wisch [Marc Cohn] says, "What a gift you've been given. Such a joy to hear your voice and spirit." John Mayer says "Your music is so soulful... and sexy... I love your phrasing." Erica is currently working on her Sophomore album. You can find her debut album Puzzle Heart on iTunes and Spotify. You also can follow her behind the scenes music stories on Instagram as @ericaleighmusic, or her Facebook fanpage: /ericaleighfans.
