Jackson Pines is a band from the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. Best friends Joe Makoviecki and James Black have been playing music together for ten years and when their former band dissolved in 2016, they took a step back and wrote new songs with a more minimalistic set-up: guitar and stand-up bass. After recording with Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers, The Lumineers, Conor Oberst) in the summer, they released their first LP “Purgatory Road” in 2017. The EP “Lost & Found” followed, receiving acclaim from Billboard Magazine as well as WXPN in Philadelphia. Using the hypnotizing cadence of whirring strings, Makoviecki’s voice and lyrics weave stories that feel rooted in the past, but speak to the present. Traveling and performing around the United States, they have learned a lot about the fine line between entertaining and transcending to get inside of each song and each concert.
Emily Drinker is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Philadelphia. She blends folk, soul, and pop with a ukulele, small backing band, and mesmerizing 3-part harmonies through live looping. Emily has been featured by NPR Music, played at festivals such as Firefly and the Philadelphia Folk Festival, and hosts her own livestream concert series every other week, which features local artists in the Philly area. She plans to release her first full-length album in the next few months.
