An underground favorite of the NYC folk scene for nearly a decade, indie-folk band Hawthorne stepped into the light in 2021, with a flurry of releases and live appearances.
Hawthorne is an NYC Indie-Americana band based around singer-songwriter duo Nat Osborn and Aimee Bayles.
The band is rounded out by long-time member, cellist Karna Ray, and a rotating cast of virtuosic NYC based multi-instrumentalists.
Hawthorne’s music weaves together contemporary folk melodies with intriguing instrumentations and affecting lyrics, all centered around Nat and Aimee’s intricate harmonies.
The fall of 2021 reigned in an exciting new era for the band with the global release of their new single, “Are We” and digital release of their eponymous debut album, previously only available on CD.
Lyle Divinsky is one of those unlikely success stories. Raised in Maine, he then cut his teeth underground playing in the New York City subways for 5 years before his self-released album, Uneven Floors, launched him into ears around the globe - reaching number 2 on the UK Soul Charts within weeks alongside radio play in the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Soon after... he was picked up by the Colorado funk powerhouse, The Motet, which took him to some of the biggest and most historic stages and festivals in the country, from Red Rocks and Madison Square Garden to the legendary Tipitina’s in New Orleans and The Fillmore in San Francisco. He truly has taken his music from Subways to Stadiums.
After 5 years, 2 studio albums, 2 live albums, and over 600 shows with The Motet, he’s getting back to his roots, and coming to a stage near YOU!
