bio: Jay Nash’s music is like the river that raised him—strong and deep, with a little bit of lullaby and a big damn current. Twenty years ago, he played loud in bars along the Saint Lawrence River, in the reaches of New York so far-flung they’re almost Canadian. For the last decade, he’s journeyed the US and Europe solo, selling over 60,000 records without ever putting ink on a conventional record deal. Now in the green mountains, the quiet cold of winter rarefies wit and musicianship into the kind of Americana that knows where it comes from.
HVA BIO: Once upon a time lived a pair of chihuahua puppies, Rhett Butler & Lucy. One day they decided to jam, quickly writing their first song. Eventually, they settled into a great sleep when Stephanie Croff & Kyle Reilly snuck in & stole all of their songs, realizing that fates aligning and puppies songwriting was like, "What?!" and so was born the duo HVA. (The “h” is silent. It’s supposed to be wild.)
