Some voices were just meant for each other. Jay Byrd and Lara Supan blend to make South Rail’s sound undoubtedly their own. Robust harmonies backed by solid songwriting and musicianship define the band’s original music, steeped in a fusion of authentic Americana and Rock and Roll. South Rail’s melding of genres and styles is attributed to the diverse backgrounds and influences of its members. Lara, originally from the DC area, studied vocal Jazz at Ithaca College in upstate NY. Jay was raised in North Carolina, where he began his professional career in his late teens. Keeping South Rail in time is drummer Ben Potok. Ben was born and raised in the tri-state area, studied drum set at the University of Maryland and played in multiple  touring bands.The combination of Jay’s roots style, influenced by artists such as Bob Dylan, Wilco, and Levon Helm, with Lara’s Jazz and Soul influences, more akin to Norah Jones and Adele, comprise South Rail’s distinctive music.

Classical singer-turned-folk-artist Laura Kepner-Adney shades her Americana with country and echoes of Appalachia. Frequently compared to Iris Dement, Chrissie Hynde and Gillian Welch, she has developed an expansive songwriting style that highlights her connection to Arizona’s unforgiving environment. Rooted in traditional folk technique, Laura’s guitar playing exposes her rock and blues influences and showcases her unconventional, rich vocals. She spent seven years performing with Silver Thread Trio, Tucson’s critically acclaimed Americana ensemble; currently fronts southern Arizona’s power pop quartet The Cordials; and has performed and recorded with national acts including Amos Lee, Calexico, Howe Gelb, Jello Biafra, and Robin Hitchcock.  The Killed Men are Tucson’s own chamber pop sweethearts, Sun Bones, in disguise.

Red House Records is proud to announce the March 4, 2014 release of the new studio album by John Gorka, Bright Side of Down. The first release in over four years from the acclaimed songwriter widely regarded as “one of contemporary folk music’s leading talents” (Vintage Guitar), the album’s 12 songs are beautifully produced and sequenced from beginning to end. With guest vocal appearances by Red House labelmates Lucy Kaplansky, Eliza Gilkyson, Claudia Schmidt and Michael Johnson, the collection resonates with the classic, “Gorka-esque” sound and lyrical insight that’s earned him generations of devoted fans and a career that’s found him gracing the stages of PBS’ Austin City Limits, NPR’s Mountain Stage and venues worldwide.
