Small Town Cinema
“Small Town Cinema, a five-piece folk outfit based in Troy, N.Y., aims to evoke a certain sensibility and set of memories, like driving down a dusty back road, jumping into a cold lake at the peak of summer and those golden evenings spent counting fireflies in the backyard.”


Denise and her Dandy Band – You Are My Christmas
A SwordPaw Song of the Month for December 2011

Ben Karis-Nix – Come to Life
“Ben recorded vocals and acoustic guitar for Come To Life at Swordpaw when the song was just a kernel of an idea. He didn’t even have a chorus. We dialed up a fitting ‘drum’ beat from our 1960’s Lowry Organ and hit record, thinking this was just going to be an scratch demo. Ben got busy, but we didn’t want to let the song go, so we took it upon ourselves to make a few edits and add electric guitar, bass, keys, and percussion. Cecelia Martinez (Sea of Trees) guest wrote and sang the chorus.”
