Hammer in Residence at Machine Project / Autumn Sonata
with Kris Karlsson, COYOL, and Anna Su
Date & Time
October 14, 2010, 8pm–11pm
Machine Project

Guest Curated by Morgan Kroll.

With roots in underground hardcore and punk, Kris Karlsson brings a DIY philosophy to his singular take on American folk and soul music. October 14th’s performance will feature songs from his new project forthcoming December 2010.

Céleigh Chapman and John Isaac Watters met in college, and started performing and writing together in the Los Angeles based collective Still Watters Run Deep. After Céleigh sang on Isaac’s solo album, they decided to collaborate on a new project and called it COYOL. William Gramling produced their first EP, which will be released later this fall.

Anna Su recently recorded her debut album, Howling Tree, with producer Nate Vaughan. With a style reminiscent of gypsy jazz and folk, her music seeks to bring musicians together to return to the simple joys of making sound.
