Zan has carved her own niche of winter folk—anthems for the revivalists, lullabies for the lonely, ballads for the hopeful. With a soulful and seductive vulnerability, Zan’s songs of love and heartbreak are complemented by the indie/bluegrass sound of her band. In 2018, Zan and The Winter Folk were named the Best Folk Band of 2018 by The Alt and have opened for acts including grammy-nominated Robbie Fulks, Sean Rowe, and Ben Caplan.

Belle-Skinner is a dark nostalgic folk and jazz songwriter from Upstate New York and Brooklyn. With a hauntingly beautiful, lilting soprano and innate sense of melody she crafts tales of songbirds, sirens and desert nomads - nuanced and layered stories that bridge the gap between past and present. Though her influences cover a broad range of genres - from French chansons and Russian folk to contemporary alt-pop and rock - her voice often draws comparisons to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Jeff Buckley, and Regina Spektor.
