Kari Arnett is an Americana singer/songwriter based in Minneapolis, MN. Drawing lyrics from hard life experiences, Arnetts focus was to connect to others through song.

Her first EP, Midwestern Skyline was released in late 2015, and her single, Heavy Heart was featured as a Daily Discovery, by American Songwriter Magazine. Her full-length debut album, "When The Dust Settles" - Produced by: Danny O'Brien (Now, Now, The Farewell Circuit) Mastered by: Huntley Miller (Bon Iver, Sylvan Esso), is set to release September 20, 2018.
Josh Harty is a messenger. A North Dakota songsmith. A true son of the heartland whose bold defiance and riveting delivery channel the essence of American music (Glide Magazine). As the son of a small town police chief and preacher, grandson of a South Dakota polka legend, Josh grew up performing with his dad at every Lutheran Church, Eagles Club, Moose Lodge and Rotary Club in the Upper Midwest. Having released several internationally-aclaimed albums and performing across the US & Europe, it is clear that Harty was born and bred for this. His live shows prove that good storytelling combined with journeyman musicianship is as authentic as music gets.
When Josh is not on the road, he resides in Madison, WI where he enjoys carpentry projects of all kinds and is an active member of the local music scene. Josh is also a long-time member of Folk Alliance and a founding member of The Wisconsin Room: an organization that promotes WI artists to an international audience and brings world- class music to Madison from elsewhere in the form of intimate gigs at various venues.
