Caroline Smith and The Good Night Sleeps performs in The Current studios

Folk-pop singer/songwriter Caroline Smith began her music career in a similar fashion to that of Mason Jennings and Elliot Smith - with a residency at the 400 Bar. This led to meeting the fine people that would later put "the good night sleeps" in Caroline Smith and the Good Night Sleeps including Arlen Peiffer, Jesse Schuster and David Earl. Their debut "Backyard Tent Set" was released in 2008 with a live album to fill the gap between that release and their follow up "Little Wind," which came out in September of 2011.

Dry The River performs in The Current studios

A fusion of hardcore, post-punk and folk (not kidding), the London-based five-piece Dry the River don't sit neatly in one genre. Growing up singing in a choir and then later as a teenager in hardcore bands, frontman Peter Liddle pulled from his parent's folk influences to create the distinct sound of Dry The River. Don't let the beards and violin fool you - they are not another Mumford and Sons! With their debut "Shallow Bed" due out in April, the band is touring heavily to promote it.
