Rich Krueger Singer-songwriter and New Folk Finalist 0 R. Krueger Hi.  My name is Rich Krueger, a singer-songwriter from Chicago IL. I'm a Folk Alliance member and a 2017 New Folk FInalist at The Kerrville Folk Festival.  I have a new album coming out in January, which went out to radio stations and reviewers n 11/20/17.  IT is already getting airplay worldwide and the reviews have been universally fantastic. I will be at at the 2018 Folk Alliance International Conference in February.  I am seeking invitations for private showcases at which I can perform Category of my music make: Americana, SInger-songwriter, Urbane Folk, thoughtful Location : Chicago IL My email richard.krueger@yahoo.com My phone (505) 506-1090 My website http://ww.richkrueger.com My reviews (more everyday) http://ww.richkrueger.com/reviews My EPK https://kgmusicpress.com/rich-krueger DIgital downloads of the album and/or copies of the CDs are available to reviewers/bookers/radio stations upon request Short BIo UNCONVENTIONAL FOLK ROCKER RICH KRUEGER IS HERE TO REMIND US THAT LIFE AINT THAT LONG “As a lifelong fan of True Deep American Strangeness, I came to a realization after leaving Milwaukee for the last time in 1959:  The truest, deepest American strangeness is to be found in the heartland, the great Midwest.  As a perfect example, take a song—any song –of Rich Krueger, and you will see exactly what I mean. Rich is an American Stranger if I ever did see one.”—Peter Stampfel, The Holy Modal Rounders Chicago, IL October 2017—Rich Krueger is an interesting and generous guy who has something to tell you if you are willing to listen.  Something that you might or might not enjoy, something that might even trouble you, but it will never be ordinary. Krueger, who is now based in Chicago, IL, was born in Bedford-Stuyvesant, NYC.  He has been writing and performing with his band The Dysfunctionells since 1985.  The Dysfunctionells, (who describe themselves as “THE Butt-Ugliest Band in Chicago”) have backed up the Holy Modal Rounders at their reunion at The Bottom Line in NYC, and Krueger has recorded with Peter Stampfel on his own and with the band. This summer Krueger released an EP Overpass, the pre-cursor to two solo albums he plans to release with Life Aint That Long being the first of the two (being released 1/26/18). Overpass draws songs from each of the projects and features many great musicians from Chicago, Tulsa, Pennsylvania and New York City including John Fulbright who plays accordion on the song, “In Between Kingfish” (which is set to release with the 2nd project).  Krueger’s friend and fellow musician, Robbie Fulks has claimed that “(Overpass) is the best thing Rich Krueger has done to date.” The folk rock Bible, Dirty Linen (no longer in print) has called Krueger’s music “Richard Thompsonesque”, and Anti-folk noted that, “Krueger is an old folkie at heart (although an esotericist in practice), and has a folkie’s love of text above all.”  Just this year Krueger was chosen as one of the Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Finalists.  His love of text shines on Life Aint That Long.  He performs original songs with well-made, intelligent, thoughtful and sometimes disturbing lyrics.  His songs are story songs with characters that aren’t always fully aware of or are in denial about what is happening to them.  The songs are usually touched by humor, even the songs with heavy topics.  They challenge his listener’s beliefs, not just massage their prejudices. Guest artists on Life Aint That Long are too numerous to name, but all are friends, and supporters of his music. The album was mastered brilliantly by Dave McNair (Dylan, Bowie, Springsteen). Along with Krueger, the core of the band is Vence Edmonds (The Dysfunctionells) on drums and Bill Kavanagh on bass.  Kavanagh also recorded, engineered, and mixed the record and was one of the producers. Others involved in producing with Krueger were Urbana, IL legend Paul Kotheimer, and Jay O’Rourke, the former Insider’s guitarist who has worked on recordings with Robbie Fulks, Warren Zevon, and Urge Overkill, to name a few. A Neonatologist at The University of Chicago by day, Krueger came to writing songs because he grew up listening and singing translations of the songs of Belgian singer-songwriter, Jacques Brel.  “I listened to these songs over and over,” he said. “They were braver, more honest and cut to the bone.  I wanted to write like that.” Life Aint That Long is an eclectic collection of 10 songs (plus a bonus track). The record starts off with “A Stoopid Broken Heart” and fiddle and pedal steel driving the upbeat Americana song all throughout.  “The Gospel According To Carl” is Randy Newmanesque song with piano, full band, horn and gospel singers. “77/17” is a punk-edged number with Krueger reminiscing about 1977 when he was 17 years old.  “The Wednesday Boys” is a blue-eyes soul anthem with a Van Morrison inspired groove.  The closing song, “What We Are?” is a piano and gospel propelled soul number and a humorous, but sober reflection on the paradox of hope for the future in these difficult times.  There is a bonus track, the Christmas-themed, “And It’s That Time Again” which Krueger wrote back in 1985. “I’m primarily motivated by having my songs heard by as many folks as possible, There have always been doctors who are writers, poets, and musicians, both professionally and otherwise.  That’s not unusual.  I make a living doing medicine that I enjoy (mostly), I help folks (mostly) and I’m fairly competent at it (mostly),” He jokes.  “I’m not in need of making a living off of my music.  But,” he adds, “I’m not gonna stand in anyone’s way if they want to pay me for listening.” 30 plus years of making music has allowed for Krueger to grow his fan base.  He’s had fans that insist that he sing at their funerals, fans that will jump up and down after he plays a song claiming that the song is “amazing!” He has had fans that will pull up beside him while driving to ask if he had any recordings.  Now, with Life Aint That Long, he can tell those fans, “yes”.  And after 30 plus years of making music it’s nice to know that Rich Krueger still has something to say.

Emily White 0 E. White   Contact Phone: 617-835-9732 Contact Email:emily@emily-white.com Category of Folk: folk/rock Location: Chicago, IL  Hi Folk Alliance!  I'm looking forward to sharing another great conference with you next year. Some info about me:  Independent folk-rock touring singer/songwriter Emily White has been described as standing out “conspicuously from the pack…with her hushed, preternaturally haunting vocal delivery (and bewitching sense of indie-rock-informed melody” (Connect Savannah). She has released four albums to date, the most recent being the Kai Welch-produced LP “Staking Flags in the Valley.”  In creating her show, she “adds an infusion of humor, audibly diverse musical influences and a truly singular sound that may leave even the most severe folk cynics entertained.” (Asheville Citizen-Times) She is based out of Chicago, but travels regularly throughout the US, captivating crowds with her unique voice and favorite Martin guitar, bringing her Southern roots and Midwestern charm to each city she visits.  Emily was named a Telluride Troubadour Finalist in 2015, and also a Finalist in the International Acoustic Music Awards that same year.  She is currently working on her 5th release, and tours regularly in the Midwest and yearly in the Northeast.   You can find out more at www.emily-white.com.     Thank you for all of your hard work as showcase hosts!  I know it's a lot of juggling and we all appreciate it very much!   emily

Carol Markstrom seeking showcases 0 C. Markstrom Hello, I’m an award-winning singer-songwriter based out of Tucson with my songs reflecting the Western Roots tradition along with nods to Outlaw Country.  Many of my original songs tell stories about engaging people, places, and events of the Western U.S., with some drawing from my non-fiction writing and personal experiences in Native American communities. I have two highly praised CDs released and a third, titled Desert Rose, was just recorded in Nashville. I expect to have that new CD with me at FAI.  This year, I received a scholarship to attend FAI for the first time, and I was also a first-timer at SERFA and SWRFA where I performed in several in-room showcases at both conventions.  Another highlight of 2017 was completing my third consecutive tour in Alaska which included performing at Salmonfest—the largest outdoor music gathering in Alaska. Thank you for your consideration, Carol www.carolmarkstrommusic.com Phone or text: 304-216-2551 2017: Crossing Borders Album of the Year, Rural Roots Music Commission 2015: Awarded Western Female Vocalist of the Year, Academy of Western Artists and nominated for 2016 and 2017! 2015 & 2017: Official Showcase Artist, Western Music Association, Albuquerque

Farrel Droke - Oklahoma Songwriter 0 F. Droke SEEKING GENEROUS SHOWCASE HOSTS Category of Folk Music: Americana Contact Info: Email: fdroke@gmail.com Cell: 405-209-4800 Website: http://www.farreldroke.com Stuff About Farrel: Farrel waited a while to start life in the music business after having had a full career as an Engineer and entrepreneur. His broad interests help create the depth of experiences needed to write decent lyrics. He is a Vietnam Era Veteran and has written a few songs about that experience. His songs are heartfelt, sometimes goofy, and sometimes Irish. Farrel’s sound is a mish-mash of Willy Nelson, Gordon Lightfoot, and John Denver. He has performed in several “The Art of the Protest Song” concerts mainly on the West Coast and, upcoming, at the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, OK. He has performed at the Norman Music Festival for several years. Farrel was a performer in the Freedom Folkers Room last year at the 2017 FAI. He has a couple of songwriting accolades:  His song, “Needle and Thread” was awarded an Honorable Mention in the July / August 2009 American Songwriter Magazine Lyric Contest. “Hard Times” won an Honorable Mention in the 2011 Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition. Farrel Droke is from Norman, Oklahoma. Farrel has three CDs: Kileigh by the Sea, Illusion of a Fool (an EP), and Magnet in My Heart released in 2017. Unlike many Folk Alliance attendees, Farrel Droke rarely wears a hat.

Amelie Patterson Poet Laureate and Song writer Debuts at FAI 2018 0 A. Patterson Hailing from Banff, Alberta, and serving as the town’s first Poet Laureate, Amelie Patterson leads as a strong ambassador for women songwriters. She would love to be considered for a showcase in your room at 2018 FAI. Below is a bio - stream her album at https://soundcloud.com/ameliepattersonmusic/sets/roll-honey-roll-1 or check out her website at www.ameliepattersonmusic.com   The clear-voiced, honest and tenacious troubadour’s music traverses territories from blues to folk rock. Her debut album Roll Honey Roll was released in May 2016 at Canadian Music Week, and went on to win YYC Alternative Recording of The Year in 2017. Patterson then took to the road touring across Canada hitting stages at Calgary Folk Music Festival, The Banff Centre for Creative Arts, TED Talks, as well as small venues across Alberta and BC. The first single off the album, “Tic Tac Blues” was featured in 509 Productions winter edit for pro snowmobile competitor Nadine Overwater. On the story behind the music, Patterson explains:   “It’s about pushing yourself to keep going after what you love, no matter how tough. I love the chorus ‘step baby step, you move just like the rest, until you roll honey roll and do what you do best’. It’s about taking baby steps towards your dreams, and being so authentically you that it’s all you can be”.   As an aspiring performer, songwriter and producer, Patterson is constantly working towards her career goals. Over the past 4 years, the aspiring songstress has completed two music residencies at the Banff Centre for Creative Arts, Canada’s Music Incubator’s Artist Entrepreneur Program, Judy Stakee’s Songwriting Retreat and featured in Air Canada's Enroute Magazine.   Patterson has been involved with not-for-profits advocating for mental health and addiction, including The Prophets of Music, Pink Shirt Day, and I Will Survive. In 2016, Patterson’s residency with the Banff Centre produced a collaborative initiative with other artists to fundraise for The Prophets of Music Society. Participating artists have been writing, filming, and recording music in anticipation of the launch in 2018, where 100% of proceeds from online sales will be directed to the society.   Patterson is currently writing and working on a comprehensive new recording project that will include collaborations with musicians and producers from all over the country. She performs with her band based in Calgary, Alberta.
