Autumn Sky Hall is a 25+ year veteran of the folk scene in California and now the east coast who's entranced audiences for many generations since she began playing at 15 years old.
An early vocal jazz major, she's a part of the California music Hall of Fame (with 7 wins for Artist of the Year, Best Songwriter and Best Indie,) and has played over 5,000 shows, many to crowds in the 10,000s and had listens in the 100,000s for releases online of her music over the years. She's graced the stage at The Sundance Film Festival, opened for Manchester Orchestra at Powerhouse Pub and for Heart at Bottlerock and at The Club Car, she's got a drink named after her for playing so often. She's played Sacramento Pride, Hotel Utah, San Francisco Music Festival, Napa Wine Festival, Holy Diver, Goldfield Ace of Spades over six times, Concerts in the Park over five times, Harlows over seven times, Chalk It Up! Art Fundraiser Festival seven times, TBD Fest, City of Trees Fest, The Sacramento Music Awards, The Napa Theater, The Blue Note, Harlows, The Russ Room, Chalk It Up! and thousands of events, shows and open mics more since first starting.
Her approach to Folk, Indie and Americana makes the traditionally predictable genre shine with a new sheen all her own, reflecting the times we live in for a brand new generation of folks who, well, love folk and want to see themselves in it. Her lyrics \(always the most remarked upon thing in her arsenal,) comfortable crowd work on stage and emotional vulnerability are the cherry on top of a sundae already reflecting the musical foundational styles of her go to favorites (Bruce Springsteen, Dolly Parton, Patty Griffin, Tom Petty, Emmylou Harris, Cat Stevens and Lucinda Williams) as well as modern heavy hitters (Brandi Carlisle, Sierra Farrell, Alison Ponthier, Lucy Dacus, Phoebe Bridgers, Clairo, Cat Power, Kacey Musgraves, Tre Burt, Leigh Graham Nash, Rainbow Girls and Allison Russell) she's a fan of.
Her latest releases are being considered as her best work by far, working together with the decades of talented people she's met along the way. She released "I Woke Up," a decades long crowd favorite known by heart by many who like to sing along at shows, "My Anxious Brain & My Broken Heart" and its coinciding music video, followed up recently by "LA" and it's music video, as well.
Not to say she's been standing idly by: she's been busy recording the over 500 songs she wrote in the past two decades in her "reclamation of self" projects which seek to bring the work she was doing as a young person with lots of passion but very little connection or money to release her work, onto official recordings for the first time ever. Oh, and she's also rehearsing, booking. and writing more music. Please send tea (sort of a joke but also not!)
Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah
