Northwest of Nashville

Jenny Anne Mannan
Jenny Anne Mannan
Northwest native Jenny Anne Mannan began her musical education at a tender age, touring with her family’s bluegrass band, The Bullas, and garnering awards at fiddle contests along the way. In 1998 she moved to Nashville with her brother Luke Bulla, where the pair co-founded a band and became fixtures in the Nashville bluegrass scene. Jenny Anne toured with country songwriter Paul Overstreet, and was often a guest of artists such as Ricky Skaggs, Chris Jones, and Jim Lauderdale. Since her return to Spokane, WA, where she currently lives with her husband, author Caleb Mannan and their 4 children, she has released a solo record, Saints and Sinners, in addition to lending fiddle and vocals to Irish band An Dochas. She has been a recurring guest of Sean and Sara Watkins on their critically acclaimed show Watkins Family Hour and has played with John Cowan at the legendary Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Her songs have been recorded by John Cowan ("Little Match Girl", Comfort & Joy) and Sara Watkins ("Lock & Key", Sun Midnight Sun). Jenny Anne’s music pays homage to her bluegrass roots as she chronicles the westward journey of a generation, a family, and a sound, in a style all her own. She is an American Songstress.
Windoe
Windoe
Windoe is the solo project of longtime northwest musician-songwriter Karli Fairbanks now Ingersoll. Based out of Spokane, Washington, Windoe performs as a four-piece band combining grunge-rock elements, minimalist arrangements and introspective songs that hold tightly to melancholic melodies and ethereal harmonies. Anchored by ten plus years of songwriting experience and a trail through many genres, Windoe is Ingersoll's new path into a sound all her own that compiles a lush palette of melodic colors over the foundation of simply good songs.

With two studio albums to share, Ira has performed on stages across the US, the UK, Scandinavia, and Southeast Asia since she began touring in 2014. She draws from personal experience, and connects on an intimate level with her audience through her honest lyrics and melancholy vocals. With roots in folk, americana and bluegrass genres, Ira has found a unique sound that resonates with an eclectic listening crowd.

A former Berklee College of Music student, Ira has been recognized for her lyrical content and vocal capabilities in numerous festivals and songwriting contests including Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, Great American Song Contest, International Songwriting Competition, Gate City Music Festival Songwriting Contest, CT Folk Festival Songwriter Competition, Blast on the Bay Songwriter Contest, and Eddie Owen's Open Mic Shootout, among others.

Along with her talent, Ira has received recognition for her fearless dedication to a full-time touring schedule as a soloist. As she has continued living on the road throughout the past two years, her music and lifestyle have been featured in blogs such as She-Explores 'Women on the Road', as well as Sonicbids 'Success Stories'.

Although Ira continues to make Nashville her home-base, she maintains a life on the road, both inside the states and overseas. She recently finished "The GoWesty Tour" and continues promoting her sophomore album, 'Honest', released March, 2016 while working on her next project.
