Buffalo Rose
2020 SFMS Emerging Artist finalist

“How can a band be loose and tight at the same time? Listen to Buffalo Rose for the answer. I flat love them.” —Tom Paxton, folk music legend and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient

Buffalo Rose gleefully combines genres and ideas to move acoustic music forward to a new, contemporary place, without ever losing sight of its roots. Fans of Lake Street Dive, Nickel Creek, and Punch Brothers will find a lot to like in this wildly charismatic six-piece modern folk/Americana band from Pittsburgh, PA. They're taking the singer-songwriter tradition to a new level.

Buffalo Rose has opened for the Wood Brothers, Mipso, Pokey LaFarge, Tyler Childers, and the Infamous Stringdusters, and shared a festival stage with the legendary Sam Bush. The band’s upward trajectory continues into 2022 with their latest EP Rabbit, created in collaboration with Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Tom Paxton. A new full-length LP is coming soon.

Lucy Clabby (vocals), Margot Jezerc (vocals), Bryce Rabideau (mandolin), Malcolm Inglis (dobro), Jason Rafalak (upright bass), and Shane McLaughlin (guitar, vocals) blend their diverse and atypical approaches to songwriting with the desire to see how unique a song can get and still feel like home. They use powerful vocal harmonies, strong playing, and an original vision to operate at every possible emotional level, from up and moving to sad and sweet and back again, bringing the entire audience along.

Angela Autumn (2020 finalist)
and Noah G. Fowler (2021 finalist)

Angela Autumn is a country, bluegrass and folk artist, singer, songwriter, guitar and banjo player. Originally from western Pennsylvania, she started performing at age 12, later following her dreams from Pittsburgh to Nashville. Her influences range from Gillian Welch to Conor Oberst, Neil Young to Pavement. With lyrics that lean towards the literary, Angela writes about women's issues, nature, loss, and longing.

Noah G. Fowler plays Americana-tinged originals that he says have the "energy of rock, the lyricism of folk, the complexity of jazz, and the character of country."

Originally from central Pennsylvania, he is currently based in Nashville. A singer-songwriter, guitarist, and bassist, he is well-renowned by his peers. His songwriting is folkloric, drawing heavily from Appalachian and Celtic storytelling traditions as well as the 60’s folk revival. He also looks to many of Texas’s storytelling songwriters like Willie Nelson, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, and Steve Earle. Nevertheless, his music fits comfortably in the context of his generation of songwriters and musicians.

In a happy coincidence, these two SFMS Emerging Artist finalists found each other and have teamed up as a duo. We're excited to hear what they're coming up with together. They are both currently writing, recording and living in Nashville.
