Stu Larsen
These days, Stu Larsen lives out of a suitcase. You might find the nomadic musician somewhere between his native Australia, Spain or Japan, before he picks up and sets off for the next destination. In support of his 2014 debut album Vagabond, Larsen brought his music to the masses with a spate of global tours which gained him international recognition. Along the way Larsen began collating ideas for his 2017 follow up album Resolute, due for release July 21st. The album then came together in various locations around the globe, from a cottage in Scotland, an apartment in Spain, and an old army bunker back in Australia. Larsen shares an important message in Resolute. “I hope everyone can…” he leaves off. “Too often, we just switch off and don’t think enough. Hopefully, these songs can spark something positive in listeners. Live simply. Don’t worry about the excesses. I hope everyone can come together around this music.”
The Western Den
The Western Den
Formed in February 2013, and driven by a shared passion to create music with purpose, The Western Den is the collaborative work of Deni Hlavinka and Chris West, who together, blend compelling folk harmonies with ambient textures to produce a sound all their own. The duo released their debut EP, ‘Battle Hymns’, in May 2013 and premiered themselves to the public, opening for Melissa Ferrick on the northeastern leg of her national tour, in the summer of the same year.

"People under the spell of The Western Den often watch them with their heads tilted upwards, their mouths slightly open, pulsing subconsciously in time to the music. It’s like observing someone having a very strange dream.” (Zoe Atlas, Sound of Boston: Local Spotlight)

The Western Den is currently based in Boston and touring in support of their newest EP, 'All The Birds' (released March 23rd, 2015), which is available now on iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Bandcamp, and all other major platforms. "All The Birds is a gorgeous ambient folk project that is far too short at four songs. Lush orchestration and acoustic guitars underscore a fantastic vocal performance with rich, storytelling-focused lyrics." (Taylor Hohulin).
