Gentle Spirit
Gentle Spirit is the creation of San Francisco songwriter Marcus Stoesz, previously from the influential Kansas band Paper Airplanes. This new project is a brave step into uncharted territory for Stoesz. Where before he built orchestral homages, this new material is self ­reflective, wandering, honest and raw. He is joined onstage by several talented San Francisco musicians from The Brankas, K Skelton, and Cerf Volant.
Hannah Yeun
Hannah Yeun is songwriter and musician Hannah Yeun McCarthy. She is supported by her bandmates James Collette (bass), Karen Moore (vox/synth) and Travis Lent (drums).Hannah Yeun plays witchy, somber tunes with a 60's vibe.
Cassiopeia was born of a deep foray into the dream world, flying over childhood fantasies, sitting with smashed dreams, sifting through rubble in the wake of change, and staring into the eyes of loves lost. As an avid dream wanderer, Hannah Skelton often harnesses these psychedelic altered states which are natural to the human body. She goes into the other worlds to forage for feelings, chasing after things that invigorate and terrify us; peering into corners of reality that we often don’t want to acknowledge, steeping in the flavors that are found there - the highs and lows that are ever present in our fumble through existence - grappling with them and pulling them out of the subconscious and into the morning. Her quivering, emotional melodies all-to-well embody the underlying pain of her melancholy themes. John Battaglia paints a beautiful landscape with his guitar that is heartfelt, ambient, and often summoning an interstellar quality. Once shrouded in droning organ a cosmic, goth rock emerges, anchored by Brian Gorman's (Tartufi / Rock Band Land) swirling, ever changing and thoughtfully placed rhythms.
