Shearwater is a band from Austin, Texas.

Le groupe se forme suite à la collaboration entre Jonathan Meiburg et Will Sheff, deux membres du groupe Okkervil River.

La bassiste Kim Burke et le batteur Thor Harris viennent compléter la bande. En 2001 et 2002, le groupe enchaîne deux albums - The Dissolving Room et Everybody Makes Mistakes - qui sont souvent comparés à ceux de Will Oldham.

Puis, la bande est renforcée par l’arrivée de Howard Draper, un multi instrumentiste, apportant une nouvelle sonorité au groupe. Ce dernier enregistre un nouvel album en 2004, Winged Life, puis en mai 2006 Palo Santo, qui marque comme un nouveau départ. On y retrouve notamment l'influence du groupe Talk Talk1, avec la recherche d'un son épuré et intense. Deux ans plus tard, Shearwater publie Rook (2008), album pour lequel ils ont signé sur le label Matador. Leurs mélodies paraissent toujours plus délicates, sans pour autant renoncer à une certaine puissance amorcée dans Palo Santo.

Death Vessel is a neo-traditional folk band from Rhode Island, signed to Sub Pop and ATP Recordings, and headed by Joel Thibodeau. Their first album, Stay Close was released on North East Indie in 2005 to critical acclaim.

Stay Close, was widely heralded for its solid songwriting, its musical ingenuity and for the unique quality of Thibodeau's crooning. His soprano register is exceptionally high for a male. Death Vessel has toured with Iron & Wine, Low, José González, and The Books, among others. In 2006 the band was signed to Seattle's venerated Sub Pop Records and London's ATP Recordings. Both labels gave Stay Close a wider release in their respective territories.

On 19 August 2008, Death Vessel's follow up to Stay Close, Nothing Is Precious Enough For Us, was released in the United States via Sub Pop Records.

Death Vessel has recently finished a tour with Jónsi of Sigur Rós.

Jesca Hoop has lived all over the map, and her rich life experience is reflected in her distinctive voice and natural gift for inventive song craft.
