Rising stars in their respective fields and longtime friends, Jeffrey Foucault and Lisa Olstein began their collaboration at a distance. In the winter of 2007, when he was between albums and she was between books, Olstein handed Foucault a folder of unpublished poems and fragments. Guitar in hand and with a field recorder on the table, he approached each piece cold, creating songs by elision and arrangement and leaving the listener to unify the intentions of the two artists in a single experience. The result is an expansion of the notion of authorship, and an experiment in the invention of meaning. It's also rock n' roll.
Following on the release of their 2010 indie debut (Jeffrey Foucault: Cold Satellite) and successful American and European tours, Cold Satellite returned to the studio in December 2012 to record Cavalcade, an expansive collection that veers nimbly from thunderous straight-ahead rockers to barroom blues, country-soul ballads to plaintive love songs. Cavalcade will be released simultaneously with the publication of Lisa Olstein’s third book of poems Little Stranger, on the venerable Copper Canyon Press.

Playing a unique blend of folk, pop, bluegrass and country styles, the Greenleaf Band is fast building a fan base in Chicago.
Since forming in early 2010, the band, made up of Paul Larson, Arielle Luckmann and Amberlee Sheehan, has played at such local venues as Uncommon Ground, Goose Island, Sylvie’s, Gallery Caberet and the Grafton. The Greenleaf Band plays original music, with an occasional cover tune.
With Larson and Sheehan trading off on guitar and mandolin, and Luckmann playing fiddle, the band offers distinctive three-part harmonies and music that is fun, engaging and energetic.
