• Carol Cleveland Sings On the Hill Session

    We super-duper love Gretchen and Thomas. From the moment we met them three-ish years ago, we were sure they were two very special people. Carol Cleveland Sings showcases Thomas’s songwriting in a comfortably-quirky, yet understatedly classy…

Kyle Swartzwelder On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

The Sun Flights On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

So…The Sun Flights …I met these ladies when I was hanging out with my friend Avery at an open mic: they were the featured act, and I was—admittedly—a little skeptical. That dried up quickly: as soon as…
