Stars Align: Big Sadie + Quarter Mile Thunder

Stars Align is a monthly concert series (and occasional podcast) that brings together musicians for one-off collaborations. You’ll hear everything from re-imagined, stripped-down versions each others songs to completely new and improvised pieces.

Big Sadie is fronted by Elise Bergman (upright bass, vocals) and Collin Moore (guitar, vocals). Defined by rich, intricate harmonies and rustic yet sophisticated instrumental arrangements, Big Sadie takes a modern, timeless approach to American roots music.

Storied Midwestern songsmith Ben Clarke’s latest LP as Quarter Mile Thunder, Bucking The Tiger, delves deeper into the pastoral Americana he’s been pursuing for over half a decade, inspired by everything from delta blues and Talk Talk to Townes Van Zandt and Spiritualized. Across seven songs the album unfurls a pensive, layered, and personal vision of country-leaning roots music, a culmination of Clarke’s journey as a songwriter.
