Marty O'Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra
Marty O'Reilly & The Old Soul Orchestra
This four-man orchestra seamlessly weaves trance based blues music, harkening back to John Lee Hooker and Howlin’ Wolf, with a drunken minor swing comparable to some of Tom Waits’ darker works.

Marty O’Reilly & the Old Soul Orchestra hail from Santa Cruz, California. The band features O’Reilly on the electrified Resonator guitar and vocals, Chris Lynch on the Fiddle, Ben Berry on upright bass, and Matt Goff joining in on the drums. Within the five years since this project started, the band is already touring nationally, internationally, and selling out venues along the West Coast and throughout the United Kingdom.

The band’s latest studio effort, Blood Blue River, marks a departure from the band’s adolescent Americana roots into music that is more nuanced, challenging, and rewarding. The band has grown, and it can be heard everywhere: in Marty’s voice, in the lyrical content, in the arrangements, and in the musicianship. This album will be one that listeners can come back to again and again, taking away something different each time.
Erisy Watt
Erisy Watt is a Nashville-raised folk-soul artist based in Portland OR. Having toured in several countries over the past years alongside guitarist Jeremy Ferrara, Watt’s blend of folk and soul often compared to Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones is enchanting audiences from Germany to Thailand and across the US. Developing her sound in Santa Barbara, CA where she lived for six years, Watt’s music invites listeners to revel in the beauty and freedom of wilder places. Hear Watt’s most recent EP Foolish Things on Spotify, iTunes, and other streaming services now.
In addition to performing, Watt founded benefit concert series Cabin by the Sea as a way to intertwine her deep reverence for live music and passion for positive community action. A traveling concert series that raises funds and awareness for local organizations, Cabin by the Sea has raised over $8,000 for area nonprofits and musicians since its founding and continues to bring the community together to groove, give back, and gain awareness.

For Watt and those she plays with, it’s all about "giving back and building community. It’s clear they are proactive people who suffuse their whole lives with purpose, passion, and positivity."(Richie DeMaria, Santa Barbara Independent)
