Ryan M Brewer writes and performs "free-range Americana" music. A singer/songwriter by trade, Ryan M. Brewer is more accurately described as a traveling musical storyteller. Having always placed the primary importance on lyricism, his songs tend to float effortlessly between genres...each one falling precisely where it needs to in order to most accurately tell the story. And that's all that matters - songs and stories. Brewer's brutally honest lyricism treads a wide topical path - covering existential confusion, political disenchantment, struggle with religious belief and love/happiness in spite of it all. His vocal range is impressive, his song structure is challenging, and his guitar work is intricate.

Chicago-based Congress of Starlings progressive folk-rock fills the room with fun energy, magical lyrics, stellar harmonies, and challenging reflections on nature, gender, and humanity. Aerin Tedesco and Andrea Bunch have been entertaining midwest and east coast audiences for over a decade at folk, rock and college clubs. Known primarily for gorgeous vocal harmonies and stellar songwriting, Andrea & Aerin do not settle for the standard folk stasis of guitar and voice. Instead they employ a wide palette of sounds and instruments from Aerin's ever-present tenor guitar to Andrea's computer generated tones. Their live
show ranges from traditional acoustic folk to laptop tinged anti-folk and back again.

This is going to a fantastic night of music, and we look forward to seeing you there!
