A tiny woman with a huge presence, Sylvia Rose Novak is a multi-instrumentalist hailing from south-central Alabama. Having been painted as a "dark and brooding intellectual" via her songwriting, Novak's best known, among her fans, to captivate an audience with her sharp sense of humor. Her carefully worded banter leads listeners delicately into her songs, much like the prologue of a book, or a narrator in a movie.
Drawing inspiration from writers such as Cormac McCarthy, Donald Ray Pollock, and Flannery O'Connor; Sylvia Rose Novak has crafted a unique style of songwriting that might, itself, be called Southern Gothic. Novak's resonant vocals couple with her unconventionally structured songs to create a listening experience that is akin to becoming immersed in a short story.
While Novak primarily fronts her band on the fiddle, she's the bassist for Birmingham rock outfit Five Shot Jack. She is also their primary songwriter. On the heels of her first two records, Novak has toured the southern united states extensively, and is looking forward to expanding her reach as her third full-length album comes to life.
Having opened for acts such as American Aquarium, Chris Knight, If Birds Could Fly, The Ghost of Paul Revere, Heath Green and the Makeshifters, Mike and the Moonpies, and Belle Adair; Novak's musical career has seen forward momentum since the release of her first album, Chasing Ghosts, in 2014. Her second album, The Last Three Years, followed quickly in 2016. Her third album is set to release in the fall of 2017
Abe Partridge is a former Baptist preacher who accepted a pastorate at 25 and then left after a near nervous breakdown at 27. He joined the US Air Force and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Now in his well-seasoned mid-30s, he has begun to share his story through his music. Abe performs his songs like an old-time preacher gone mad - with all the soul he can muster. He is a poet, not afraid to tackle any subject. He makes no attempt at pop stardom or radio play - just delivers somber stories with a burning message that demand an honest hearing.
