Snug House // Luniere // Gentle Temper

Sunday - April, 01 @ 7:00pm

Gentle Temper is Ryan Meier and Marion Earley, an ocean-folk duo with a blues tide from the bayous of Boston, MA. Marion and Ryan met while attending college in Boston and began writing and playing together in their final year. Their live sound builds on a sturdy foundation of lyrical storytelling & animated harmonies.
They have opened for nationally touring acts LOLO, Bombadil, and 2014 NPR Favorite new artist The Family Crest. They have had the pleasure of performing at the annual Chikombuso Women's and Orphan's Project at the Jonathan Edwards Vineyard in July 2017. The following September, they won 1st place in the Katrina’s $1,000 Open Mic Challenge and appeared on the Gloucester television series “Local Music Seen” in Fall of 2017.
The pair just released their first acoustic single, "Sugar", and are currently working on a Live EP, due out later this year. They are excited to continue recording for their first full length album at Red Bull Studios in New York.


SnugHouse is Nikhil Dasgupta, Alex Millan, Rosie Borden, and Laura Pauline




Songwriters Calen Perkins, Jason Roman and Geoff Zimmerman draw from their wide range of musical tastes to collaborate under the name "Luniere" on original songs that showcase vocal harmonies, pop, rock and folk influences. The band's origin story is a bit murky, but goes something like this... Three singer/songwriters walked into a bar. They each picked a song on the jukebox. One particularly esoteric member of the group played a record backwards and it sounded like a French debate over the quality of filtered moonlight. They quickly kicked that member out of the band, but the idea stuck and inspired their now familiar sounding, yet nonsensical name.
