ZOE & CLOYD
ZOE & CLOYD
Debut duet album Equinox named one of the “Outstanding Duo Albums of 2015″ by No Depression Magazine

“This is an enchanting debut CD by a young couple with immense respect and passion for traditional music, delivered with exquisite vocal and instrumental ability and the wisdom to play it simply and well.” – Bluegrass Unlimited

“I’m a sucker for great duo harmony singing, well-written originals, choice material, and fine playing—all of these are here on Equinox, the sweet and powerful first album by Zoe & Cloyd. I absolutely love it!” — Alice Gerrard

Zoe & Cloyd spring from deep roots in American music. Founding members of the acclaimed Americana trio, Red June and long-time veterans of the Asheville, NC music scene, Natalya Zoe Weinstein and John Cloyd Miller shifted gears to their duet project after the birth of their daughter in early 2015. Their debut recording, Equinox, released in April 2015, features original and traditional repertoire spanning bluegrass, old-time and folk and showcases the elegant simplicity of two instruments and two voices. The album met with high acclaim and their banner year continued with a 1st place win at the Duo Contest at the prestigious FreshGrass Festival in North Adams, MA. Look for the couple in 2016 at MerleFest, Music City Roots, and much more!

John Cloyd Miller is a twelfth generation North Carolina native and the grandson of pioneering bluegrass fiddler and NC Folk Heritage Award winner Jim Shumate. John’s foundation in traditional bluegrass and old-time Appalachian music coupled with his modern sensibility make him a natural musician and performer. He is well known for his haunting mountain voice as well as his instrumental prowess and award-winning songwriting. John is a 1st place winner of the prestigious Chris Austin Songwriting Contest and a recipient of an Artist Fellowship for songwriting by the North Carolina Arts Council.

Natalya Zoe Weinstein also comes from a musical family: her father is master jazz pianist and her grandfather was a professional klezmer musician. She is an accomplished fiddler in a variety of styles as well as an inspiring singer and songwriter. While trained classically in her home state of Massachusetts, she has spent many years fine-tuning her bluegrass and old-time fiddling with some of the country’s top traditional musicians. Now a mentor to many young players, Natalya is a sought after instructor and is in high demand as a teacher and session musician.
HOLLY LORETTE
HOLLY LORETTE
Holly Lorette lives and breathes music, and she should. The Charlotte, NC-based vocalist and songwriter hails from a strong musical family that includes her NC Folk Heritage Award winning grandfather, Jim Shumate, as well other notable songwriters and musicians.

Holly’s music has been heavily influenced by the experiences she's had growing up in the South, a part of the country rich in its complexities and contradictions. She recently released her first self titled, solo album, Holly Lorette.

“I like to think of my sound as dark folk--often a bit haunting lyrically and stylistically, but with an end goal of making peace with the emotional hardships of life. Being a part of this musical culture, surrounded by friends and family musicians has shaped how I experience and write music.”

In addition to her work as a solo artist, Holly Lorette also writes and performs with local favorite, Liz, Holly, & The Jolly Lollies an interactive band geared toward young children. For more information please visit their site here The Jolly Lollies When she’s not performing, Holly also runs her own business in Charlotte, Music With Holly, where she shares and teaches the love of music with children.
