// SHOECRAFT //
What began in 2013 as a casual weekly jam on the shore of Lake Shoecraft (Stanwood, WA) has since blossomed into a seasoned ambient folk/rock outfit with promise and potential on their side.
Shoecraft has patiently carved out a unique sonic identity and is fueled by a passion to contribute to the rich lineage of artists hailing from the Pacific Northwest.
Their early recordings gently piece together sparse acoustic instrumentation, clearly derivative of their vulnerable beginnings, inspired by the likes of Sufjan Stevens, The Innocence Mission, Andy Hull, and S. Carey.
In recent releases, a more rhythmic and electric Shoecraft is revealed, while maintaining their hallmark accessibility and emphasis on storytelling reminiscent of Ben Howard, Dry The River and The Middle East.
// Zach Kleisinger //
Based in Vancouver, Canada, Zach Kleisinger writes lyrically-driven songs in the contemporary, darkened-folk, singer-songwriter style. His words often feel like a bathroom mirror, while his compositions tend to conjure an emotion akin to the heartbreakers on Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks. The strength in Kleisinger’s songwriting is often described as a simple yet poetic intimacy, one that illustrates profound messages by magnifying the little things.
Kleisinger’s latest record Their Symposium, was released in August 2021 via DevilDuck Records to widespread acclaim. Since its release, Their Symposium has charted on college radio across the US and Canada, received generous airplay on Canada’s nationally syndicated radio network CBC, and earned numerous publications in magazines such as Canadian Musician, Americana UK, Atwood, and American Pancake. In the deep sea of indie-folk songwriters, Zach Kleisinger is a true storyteller and entertainer, a narrator of raw emotions and real tales; ones that will draw you into an intimate, familiar world.
