Joseph is a bewitching trio of sisters from Portland, Oregon. Expect honest words and genetically perfected harmonies. For their ATO Records debut I'm Alone, No You're Not, the band teamed with producer Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, First Aid Kit) to record eleven original songs exploding with a mystical exuberance and heart-on-sleeve emotion. A masterclass in pristine 3-part harmony, the album features golden, shimmering pop songs tucked next to the most delicate ballads: love lost and found, amplified by three unwavering voices.

Blind Pilot
Blind Pilot turns loss into inspiration on its new album 'And Then Like Lions' (ATO Records). Written and composed by Israel Nebeker over the course of three years, the record is a transcendent, cathartic response to the loss of his father and end of a 13-year relationship. Blind Pilot teamed up with producer Tucker Martine (The Decemberists, Neko Case, My Morning Jacket) and the album was mixed by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Kurt Vile).

3 Leg Torso

" This christmas album - over two years in the making -  was inspired by "A Circus Carol,"  our  holiday theater extravaganza with the Wanderlust Circus. Take a festive journey with 3 Leg torso and our special guests and good friends, vocalist extrodinaire: Storm Large, Valerie Day, Scot Crandal, Noah Mickens, and  guitarist:  David Stassens. Let’s not forget our own T.J. Arko, stepping out from behind the drum kit in his singing debut with 3 Leg Torso, on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen!

We have been an instrumental ensemble since 1996 and on this album we have been excited to add all these great singers to the mix. But what is the genesis story of 3 Leg Torso, you might ask? Well......

3 Leg Torso formed as violin, cello and accordion trio with the mission of creating original modern chamber music for their unique instrumentation. Over the following years, the ensemble has expanded both it's musical mission and it's size to become a quintet that now performs original compositions based on an eclectic synthesis of chamber music, tango, klezmer, latin, and Roma (Gypsy) music.
