We're sure you've heard us talk in the past about UK-based independent label Communion
, which was co-founded by Mumford and Sons' Ben Lovett. They were the fine folks who introduced us to our latest session artists Bear's Den
, as well as other Baeble favorites like Ben Howard
and The Staves. The team's latest Stateside endeavor presents us with a nine-stop tour of five up-and-coming artists. The new project will work on a monthly cycle as fresh artists sub-in and travel throughout the U.S., with each city stop featuring its own collection of local talent.
October will kick-off Communion's first monthly musical journey and it will host artists like New York-based Willy Mason and Rubblebucket, Florida's Roadkill Ghost Choir, and more. We're pleased to present tasty samples of each October artists' unique style below, and be sure to check out the full tour schedule at the bottom of this page. Tickets are currently on sale here

Roadkill Ghost Choir - "Beggars' Guild"
