Krista Detor’s solo albums have reached national and international prominence. Her choral works have been commissioned by the Ashland Women’s Choir, the Shrewsbury Community Choir, the Cincinnati Women’s Choir, and others. Krista continues to tour the U.S., Canada and Northern Europe, as a songwriter, performer. A returning guest lecturer at Stanford University, Detor works with students in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric. Her album, “Chocolate Paper Suites” is now ‘required reading’ for the literature course, "The 'isms of Modernism," in which students seek to explore modernism's impact on, and negotiation with, contemporary culture and art.

Detor was the only American woman invited to the Darwin Songhouse, a project in which songwriters sequestered for one week in Shrewsbury, to write songs celebrating the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. Commissioned by the Shrewsbury Arts Council and Shrewsbury Folk Festival, and covered extensively by the BBC, the project culminated in a live performance and CD. Detor’s work was singled out by The Guardian Newspaper, UK, in a review which called the album impressive & intriguing’.

She is Co-Creator of the CD and stage show ‘Wilderness Plots’, which resulted in an Emmy-nominated PBS Special. Detor, the four other Wilderness Plots songwriters and author Scott Russell Sanders were honoured in 2010 by both Houses of the Indiana Legislature for Contributions to the Arts.


Dan will perform acoustic and electric songs from the present to early days. In a somewhat messy process that began with the 4 Songs EP last year, quasi-legendary, esteemed and vilified singer-songwriter Dan Stuart announces the release of his first solo record this century: The Deliverance of Marlowe Billings out on Cadiz Music, London, late August 2012. 
 Mr. Stuart is best known for being the leader of 80's groundbreakers Green on Red featuring Chuck Prophet, and half of the duo Danny & Dusty with Steve Wynn. His artistic efforts have been praised (and mocked) in the pages of the LA/NY/London Times as well as Rolling Stone, NME and countless others. His songs have been performed by artists as varied as Manic Street Preachers, Richmond Fontaine, Jon Dee Graham and Vivian Girls: strange bedfellows for sure.

In a page from B.Traven's life, Mr. Stuart has been living under the name of Marlowe Billings in Southern Mexico. Rumors of an escape from a New York mental health facility have not been denied. What is certain, is that Mr. Stuart has been spotted playing gigs around the world, thoroughly surprising himself and others. Que un milagro!
