"Another daunting proposition? Quitting your job in community development to record and tour with your new solo album. Michael accomplished all of these things in the past 7 months, having spent much of that time on the road with fellow Anchorage band Super Saturated Sugar Strings, winding across the Western US, Canada, and Alaska."

Performance: 12/13/14 at Tap Root Public House
"The band, specifically the lead singer Tatiana Agnew, has nurtured a quirky lo-fi punk vibe. This consists of odes to unrequited love, frolicking and procrastination. But as a whole, Moonicorn is focusing on a fuller, robust tone by infusing soul and other genres. These new influences are smoothing out their hectic sound while remaining faithful to their dream pop roots." Anchorage Press 11/19/14

When you think of Alaska, you may think of isolation, of cold frozen mountain-scapes or landscapes so large that humans are easily lost in their scope. But Alaska’s really more of an incubator, a network of fiercely independent communities that look inward to find strength and inspiration. That’s what songwriter and American roots musician Anna Lynch found coming from Berkeley, California to the Last Frontier when she was a kid on frequent family visits.

Anchorage Music Co-op Performances: 11/20/14 at Tap Root Public House and 10/12/12 at Out North Theater
This original and sincere collection of music includes waltzes and love songs, empowering beats, a little bit of booze, a few good laughs, and at least one good cry. Inspired in many ways, from my years living a simple life in rural Alaska, I hope the sounds of the pedal steel, piano, and fiddle take you back in time through campfires and woods, and leave you in a saloon somewhere with a song in your heart.

Hannah Yoter 

Anchorage Music Co-op Performance: 10/23/14 at Tap Root Public House
Hannah Yoter is well versed in the language of acoustic music. She has a musical prowess and repertoire that span generations. Growing up in Alaska she began playing guitar at a young age and was exposed to a variety of music covering most of the folk world. After high school Hannah decided to leave Alaska for North Carolina and pursue music even further. In North Carolina she found herself immersed in and inspired by the old time Appalachian music tradition. Hannah played and traveled with multiple bands while in the South and found a new love for song writing. In early 2013 Hannah moved back to Alaska to try her hand at the Alaska music scene.

"Elegies, little victories, and masterful storytelling...[These songs] weave beautiful, forlorn tales in a matter of minutes, with a defiant note of hope." - Jeri Kopet

Midwesterner living in Anchorage with Cole and Milo. I used to play solo a lot. Not any more. Mostly play around South Central AK with my good friends. Played with a lot of locals, and opened for some really great musicians. Lots of talent and inspiration around here and although AK is huge, the community of musicians and advocates up here is small and wonderful.

A band of six Anchorage musicians, who play​ ​acoustic instruments, and sing traditional Irish & Scottish songs, sea shanties, and pirate fare, whose lyrics often have a wry, humorous and sometimes bawdy twist. Vastly enjoyable entertainment!  A drinking band with a small Irish problem.
