Griffin William Sherry

Living somewhere in-between modern catharsis and American myth, Griffin William Sherry’s roots continue to grow strong in the ever evolving genres of Folk, Americana and Rock & Roll.

Griffin’s music is inspired by his New England rural roots. As such, he cobbles together an inimitable signature style, visceral and heartfelt, loud and passionate, each song taking on a voice of its own.

In 2011, He co-founded the independent band The Ghost of Paul Revere, capturing the hearts and minds of countless fans with a series of acclaimed releases and sold-out shows everywhere. He helped establish his own music festival, performed on national television, and garnered millions of streams. In 2019, his song The Ballad of the 20th Maine became the official Maine State Ballad, securing The Ghost of Paul Revere’s place in Maine music history.

In 2022, after writing music for seventeen years, Griffin’s begun work on his first solo record, taking a defiant step in a new direction.

Dominic Lavoie


Leading a wall of sound influenced by the past with a lyrical mindset from our paranoid present, psychedelic folk-rock artist Dominic Lavoie has created an aural and visual world from his home base in Portland, Maine – a makeshift studio dubbed “Shabbey Load”.

Following 2018’s music video EP, Mariposa, Lavoie and his band recruited producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos) to guide the full-length, Wave With A Broken Arm. Recorded in 2019, the eerily prescient content tackles technology, false idols and our new everyday (un)reality. Release set for summer of 2020.

With a rhythm section that can go from 70’s loose to Radiohead-tight, a keyboardist who creates entire atmospheres, and slick dual guitar melodies all blending to create the perfect backdrop for Lavoie’s signature vocals – it’s the most comforting way to be terrified.
