Lily DeTaeye is a Des Moines native, harmonica-wielding singer songwriter signed to Station 1 Records. After the release of her EP, appropriately titled “The EP”, November 2017, DeTaeye has been traveling the highways of the Midwest touring solo and with her band. Her new album, recorded at Jim Eno’s (Spoon) Public Hi-Fi in Austin, TX, is out now.
DeTaeye’s music combines the Black Keys’ grit with Brandi Carlile’s eloquent lyric-writing into one high energy show. She’s like if your neighborhood librarian rocked a blues harp in yellow overalls. You definitely don’t wanna miss her.

Hope Dunbar’s music is rooted where and with whom she lives: in small town Utica, NE (population 800) with her husband and three kids. Between basketball games and PTA meetings, she finds time to write about women like her: complicated. Sometimes stretched thin and wanting more; sometimes singing liberation anthems and cracking jokes; always believing love is never too far out of reach. Hope’s debut EP “A Woman like Me” showcases her powerhouse vocals and her ukulele and guitar prowess with songs and style influenced by traditional country and folk.
