Dust Bowl Faeries
Dust Bowl Faeries
Dust Bowl Faeries is a dark-carnival band based in Hudson NY. Their eclectic repertoire of songs draw inspiration from circus, post-punk, Gypsy and Eastern European folk music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap-steel, guitar and percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries’ otherworldly sound. The band was founded by Ryder Cooley, hostess of the Helsinki Open Mic night, and Hazel, a disembodied taxidermy ram who performs with the Fairies as their mascot-spirit animal. Musicians Rubi LaRue, JoAnn Stevelos and Jon B. Woodin each bring their own unique styles to the group, making the Dust Bowl Faeries a truly wild and whimsical musical experience. The band released their debut album, produced by Seth Rogovoy, in 2016 featuring Tommy Stinson (Replacements) & Melora Creager (Rasputina). A Remix EP, produced by Floyd Fisher, was released in January 2018.

LUIS MOJICA is a pianist & vocalist who started developing his unique musical style in the crowded apartments and crumbling theaters of NYC's East Village. Six years ago he settled in the mountains of Woodstock where he is renowned for his holistic healing work, as well as his musical compositions. His unique style of live looped beat boxing and rich vocal harmonies caught the attention of Melora Creager, founder of the cult-famous cello band Rasputina, which led him on two US tours where he created his own fan base and released his first solo album titled Wholesome in July of 2016. The record features Creager on cello & Brian Viglione (Dresden Dolls) on drums. His current record, How A Stranger Is Made, releases in the Spring of 2019 and features production from Mercury Prize Winning producers David Baron & Simone Felice (Lumineers, Bat For Lashes), as well as Grammy Award Winning producer Justin Guip (Levon Helm).
