TINY TELEVISION Jeremy D'Antonio and Tiny Television are an SF-based roots /country outfit that is seriously in touch with their soul side, while also serving up a steady Americana stomp. They play with the passion and confidence of a band that's been touring for dozens of years instead of a mere handful. Two things set them apart from the legion of folksy Americana bands littering California's entertainment byways at the moment. First is D'Antonio expressive Johnny Cash meets Levon Helm singing voice. Second, except for the occasional cover, they do all their own songs that are so full of confidence and experience, that you'll swear that someone named Merle or Hank or Willie must have written them. KELLY MCFARLING Band Kelly McFarling's sound is effortless, melodic, and full of subtle shifts of emotion. It is generous and wide-open like the wide-open vistas she sings about. She starts with a restless pulse, a driving rhythm. She threads it with wistful melodies full of longing. Her lyrics evoke both a child's wonder of discovery and a determined romantic's refusal to accept the defeat of lost dreams. Born in Atlanta, she now calls San Francisco home. Over the past few years she has honed a unique spare passionate brand of songwriter craft fueled both by her distinctive, commanding vocals and rhythmic soulful banjo.
