GoldenOak’s music is rooted in the natural landscape- their songs move like a stream, meandering and weaving in an original yet grounding direction. Fronted by siblings Zak and Lena Kendall GoldenOak’s music calmly excites its listeners while nestled in rich folk-influenced sibling harmony. The Maine-based band has built a steady and growing fan base with this kind of energetic intimacy. This is perfectly represented in the group’s latest album “Room to Grow”- A 10-song reflection of the emotional and physical impacts of the climate crisis. The band is rounded out by up-right bassist Mike Knowles and Drummer Jackson Cromwell.

GoldenOak has shared the stage with Hiss Golden Messenger, Marco Benevento, Ghost of Paul Revere, Sierra Ferrell, The Ballroom Thieves, and Dustbowl Revival.

Dead Gowns

Dead Gowns is the moniker for Portland, Maine indie-folk songwriter, Geneviève Beaudoin. Pulling on folk, garage, and soft rock tendencies, it’s music in the raw & tender.

“It’s just a five-song EP, but Dead Gowns’ debut brought a lot of swooning when it dropped last year. The raw and tender indie-folk songs of Genevieve Beaudoin seem eerily elevated played as a four-piece, such as Lucinda Williams fronting Fleet Foxes.” – Bangor Daily News

“Dead Gowns play the music we sing along to while we’re driving and tear up to once we’re parked.” – WURI

“Subtle yet powerful, achingly beautiful songs played earnestly.” – Rad Plaid
