Americana/Roots Music

“St. Paul Americana musician Molly Maher sounds like she’s had her dose of wandering. Her guitar playing is rural and soulful. Breaking all convention, she plays guitar upside down and in different tunings. Elizabeth Cotton would be proud.”
– Eric Loama, musician

“Her music is a window to the lonely world of a nomadic spirit, someone who has loved and lost at love, someone who has lived the existence of a vagabond dreamer … and then there’s her voice, the apparent lovechild of Ricki Lee Jones and Bonnie Raitt.”
– Richard Thomas, Reader Weekly

“Best known as an ace guitarist (for Molly Maher, Randy Weeks) and a producer/engineer (Trampled by Turtles), Erik Koskinen should also be recognized as a masterful songwriter and rousing country singer with the release of his solo album, Keep It to Yourself. The Upper Peninsula native comes off like a twangier Greg Brown or a moodier John Hiatt in down-and-out gems such as ‘Treat Me So Bad,’ several rambling rockers and one downright horny gem, ‘Pretty Girls.’ … ” -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
