Rustic Overtones are a seven-piece rock band from Portland Maine with a discography that spans 20 years.
The band's unique version of indie rock is strongly influenced by soul music, garage punk, jazz and psychedelic music of the '60s and '70s.
"A unique sound steeped in both Earth, Wind and Fire-style funk and late-era Beatles psychedelia'" - Rolling Stone
"Rustic's firepower-a skintight rhythm section, soulful, keyboards, stinging guitars, funky horns and the potent, complex, and totally engrossing voice of frontman Dave Gutter" -Billboard Magazine
Amarantos Quartet members, Hannah Schroeder Jackson (cello), Meagan McIntyre (violin), Lauren Hastings Genova (violin), and Anna Maria Amoroso-Noyes (viola) embark on a collaboration with singer and songwriter, Sara Hallie Richardson. This collaboration celebrates not just the mutual respect for one another’s musical talents and work, but also the friendship and life-long relationships that are forged through music-making.
Since Amarantos came together in Portland, Maine in 2013, the group has performed at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Portland, Maine based singer/songwriter, Richardson performs and writes music through folk, indie, and electronic styles. With influences such as Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, and Bjork, her songs are known for dense vocal harmonies and soaring melodies as well as combining synthetic and acoustic orchestral sounds. A genre-bending and genre-defining project, the Amarantos Quartet applies sounds to Richardson’s unique and vast songwriting and vocal skills. Each player works tirelessly to arrange, promote, and grow this exciting, dream-come-true enterprise.
