CALICO the band, the California country group led by Manda Mosher and Kirsten Proffit will showcase at this year’s AmericanaFest.  Known for their  quintessential California country sound, CALICO the band will release their sophomore album, Under Blue Skies, on July 21 through Mosher and Profitt’s own imprint, California Country Records LLC.  The duo’s indie Americana country label is also home to Alice Wallace -- who will be performing at this year’s Fest as well.

The eighteenth annual Americana Music Festival & Conference will take place September 12 through 17 at venues throughout Nashville, TN. (AmericanaFest Performers - Rolling Stone)

Under Blue Skies was recorded in Southern California at the Fitting Room Studio with Steve Berns and Kirsten Proffit producing. CALICO’s Americana version of the Mama’s and the Papa’s iconic “California Dreaming” was recorded in Jim Scott’s PLYRZ Studio in Santa Clarita, CA with CALICO’s rhythm section of bassist Ted Kamp and drummer Matt Lucich, augmented by a crew of all-star players including Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Neal Casal on 12-string electric, Patrick Warren on keys and Kaitlin Wolfberg.

It is somewhat ironic, in a California kind of way, that the Americana beauty of Under Blue Skies came together during Cali’s drought-ending rains. CALICO the band pairs their power of voice with their deeply-felt, lyrical emotions of Sunshine and Rain, Love and Pain, Hope and Reality.
