Artist To Watch

KT Tunstall is a sparkling new songwriter with Chinese blood, a Scottish heart, great legwarmers and a cool name - "well, it's got a bit more attitude than Kate which just says farmer's daughter to me," she laughs.

Listening to Danielia Cotton, you're bound to believe: Black is rock and roll.

As the daughter of a jazz singer, Danielia grew up in a small New Jersey town.

Blue Merle is a band that doesn't simply defy expectations; it renders them irrelevant. Despite its mostly acoustic instrumentation, the band is well practiced at the art of catching an audience unaware and transporting it to a place of pure rock pleasure.

John Butler

The John Butler Trio effortlessly combines gritty soulful vocals, elements of hip-hop, and Appalachian folk with subtle hints of everything from reggae to Zeppelin.

Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion

Authentic. Timeless. Harmonious. Exhilarating. Any or all of these adjectives could describe the folk-rock sound created by Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion.

Being this month's WXPN Artist To Watch coincides with Boggia's second solo release Safe In Sound due in stores on May 3.

Matthew Miller was born in West Chester, NY on June 30, 1979, corresponding to the Jewish date of the 5th of Tamuz 5740. Shortly after his birth, the Miller family moved to Berkeley, CA, and eventually settled in White Plains, NY.

Being this month's WXPN Artist To Watch comes quickly after Feist's April 2005 release of Let It Die on the Interscope Records label.

Death Cab For Cutie is comprised of band members Ben Gibbard (singer/guitarist), Nick Harmer (bassist), Jason McGerr (drummer), and Chris Walla (guitarist/organist). Their newest album, Plans, is scheduled for release on August 30.

Seattle-based singer-songwriter Laura Veirs calls her 2005 Nonesuch release Year of Meteors "a road record." "It doesn't sound like one," she says, "but it is."
