About Babes in Canyon

Babes in Canyon

Eloquently blending big-pine folk, indie-pop, and sweet vocal harmonies, Babes In Canyon crafts music that is eminently engaging and very much of the moment. Born of a spontaneous writing session during a blackout, their debut EP Second Cities unfolds with an easy grace that belies the relative newness of the endeavor. Nuanced, expertly arranged, yet profoundly catchy, Babes In Canyon stands ready to soundtrack your adventures (spontaneous or otherwise).

"Warm & autumnal shades of folk... immensely catchy songwriting."


"Soaring harmonies, confident musicianship and textured sonic expansive contemporary folk sound that crosses genres."


About The Van Rontens

Funky folk-grass

The Van Rontens

A fusion of Folk, Funk Grass and Gypsy Roots. It's like a whole new sandwich. Or maybe Iron and Wine meets Modest Mouse with crystal clear female lead vocals. Lead vocalist and songwriter Melodie Ayres, in seek of a major life change, upended her Kansas roots this last summer. She packed her car and shoved off for the adventure of the Cascade Mountain range and the rich music scene of Portland Oregon. After months of playing open mics she accumulated a tribe of musicians and fans to support her dream. Now The Van Rontens have created a sound like no other and are touring the country changing perspective on life one fan at a time.
