Singer-songwriter Tyler Preston hails from Juneau, Alaska, though he spends most of the year on the road. He has released four albums since 2009, and his concerts have been well-received on several tours through the US and Canada. Preston’s music is soulful and timeless, at turns haunting and hopeful—
the howl of a lone wolf wandering along the border between Appalachian country and Delta blues. He sounds a little like Van Morrison and Lightnin’ Hopkins out for a night on the town with Tallest Man On Earth and Shakey Graves.
Michele D'Amour is a born storyteller and award-winning songwriter who penned her first song at the age of six and became a published poet in her early twenties. Her lyrics treat difficult topics with a sense of soulful whimsy and wry humor. Michele sang in her church choir, wrote songs, and sang lead for some local bands before honing her craft at several of the blues jams in the Seattle area. Upon the advice of friends, she formed Michele D'Amour and the Love Dealers in 2011. Her sound has been likened to Bonnie Raitt and Marcia Ball.
