the sisters Von Grey in 2012 – Petra, Annika, Kathryn, Fiona. My best guess on the order, left-to-right. They have since refined their sound from country to ethereal, and Petra is not currently performing with them.

Wormburner, stalwart NYC band, whom actually sang a lot of NJ-oriented songs on the album “Pleasant Living In Planned Communities”. I saw their annual Christmas show at Mercury Lounge in NYC years ago, and donated my old winter coat to the cause.
DB Rielly‘s thoughtful songwriting and prose stands up to the very packaging of his music. This album comes inside a stainless still tin. He did likewise with his prior album. He also fashioned mock postcards into albums.
