Nominated for a 2014 New England Music Award, Kate Callahan, Connecticut’s “Best Singer-Songwriter 2013” has three albums including her recent release Two Doors, which was featured on WNPR's Where We Live.
Callahan’s music feels soulful and she’s unapologetically optimistic in concert. WNPR host Colin McEnroe praised a recent performance, saying, “Kate Callahan is the only performer I’ve ever seen who occasionally seems to be channeling something vaster and far more ancient than herself, something more easily understood by Emerson than by any modern person.
Kate’s credits include appearances at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artists Showcase, the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas, and the CT Folk Festival. She has opened shows for folk legends Judy Collins and Noel Paul Stookey (Peter, Paul, and Mary), troubadours Aztec Two-Step, John Gorka, Mustard’s Retreat, and the late Bill Morrissey. She has also shared stages with folk-rock artists Rachael Sage and Regina Spektor. Stookey calls Callahan "real" and says her lyrics are "Zen-like."
Kate joins Take 2 Radio Music for a chat and music on Wednesday, September 3rd at 3pm eastern!

At the age of 17, Luke picked up an acoustic guitar for the first time and started writing songs not only about love but also about growing up…In a short time he’s become a natural songwriter and emerging artist in the making.

Aidan Nolan relocated from Australia to New York in 2005. As well as fronting some of Australia's more popular bands, aidan has written music for film and television plus contributed vocals to recordings for a range of Australian and UK artists. He has had two albums of original songs released internationally to critical acclaim and an ever-increasing "cult" following in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Recent additional releases included European club re-mixes exclusively for "in-club" DJ use. Aidan's career has included a number of musical "firsts" for Australian artists. His initial record label had so much faith in aidan's writing and vocals that his first single was the most expensive recorded in Australia
Now sitting at #1 on his respective reverbnation charts he is poised and ready to once again hit new heights. In the last two years, there has been a huge resurgence of interest and support for the work of vintage Australian singer songwriter aidan nolan. The quality of his
work has rocketed him to the top of the Reverbnation charts in the highly competitive New York market and his label, Two Faced Records, has received enquiries from the US, UK, Europe, Australia and Asia about further releases.Having re-located from Australia to the US a few years back aidan has written music for film and TV in Australia and charted on commercial radio in the UK and Europe before arriving here. It now seems that a much wider and younger audience has discovered this writer for his lyrical intelligence and perception in combination with highly approachable melody. Further, aidan is fast becoming known for the diversity of musical genres he can approach and still do great credit to himself within.In partnership with multi-award winning producer and arranger Stephen Lightbody.
