Loffredio, of East Providence Rhode Island, has been creating and performing music since 2002. When he is not playing in his full band, “Barn Burning” or in his experimental, Lofi synthesizer project “Low Radio”, he’s blending both of the two musical projects when playing solo under his own name. His sound can be best described as indie folk.
Hayward lives in Vineyard Haven. This is her second set in public although she has made music behind closed doors for many years. She has been a DJ on WVVY Thursdays 5-7 for the past four years. Her show is called Upisland Air.
Jodi Treloar Sampson
My project, Sneakytown (when with a full band) and self-titled Jodie Treloar Sampson when solo, is basically a glimpse into my life. I create autobiographically and craft songs that are often very quilt-like with themes patched together in a way that accommodates me at the time of creation. I guess you could call me a traditional singer-songwriter.
BRIAN JABLONSKI will accompany Jodi on pedal steel guitar.
