“Ben Shaw is a Rhode Island based composer and multi-instrumentalist who, as a singer/songwriter, digs into the uniqueness of American music and seeks to blend all its facets together for a rich experience where the sounds of old folk ballads and raging second line rhythms can be heard alongside lush harmonies and contemporary styles, all with the craft of a honed musician.”
Cameron Hawkins (Timothy-Anne)is a restless pile of dreads and owner of 18 army green jackets. They’ve played in and around the Boston and Providence area for a couple years and even opened for Kimya Dawson last year at AS220. Their songwriting style can be described as sweet wandering chords befriending slight existential-crisis lyricism.
