Tiny Rhymes is an indie alt-folk chamber group from Buffalo, NY. Featuring tight vocal harmonies, richly melodic string lines, and the introspective songwriting of leader Sharon Mok, the group has received favorable press from its native Buffalo and beyond. Artvoice (Buffalo) writes, “Some people like to write songs while others tell stories. Vocalist/guitarist Sharon Mok tells her audience a story. Her voice floats beautifully above the acoustic sounds of her “chamber-folk” band only to be matched with the soothing sounds of cello and violin. Tiny Rhymes offers listeners tranquility and leisure and it’s clear they’re here to stay.” Katie Weissman (cello), Kathryn Koch (violin), and Lindsey Holland (vocals) met Mok in Buffalo through mutual acquaintances from the University at Buffalo Music Department, where Sharon worked as a full-time piano technician.

Born and raised in Virginia and living now in Richmond, Clay’s musical roots run deep from touring choirs and pit band in high school and college musicals to open-mic nights and local and regional concerts.  The two albums released under Clay Mottley Band each garnered glowing reviews in Billboard, citing Clay as a “clever, catchy and ever-inventive songwriter who delivers originals that sparkle like sunlight on gemstones” and as having “a master craftsman’s touch for melody and words that are unfailingly substantive and intriguing.” “Music is as much about the song itself as it is the performance.  I think the song has to be strong on...
