Troy Millette
Troy Millette
Heart, humor, and humility are the keys to success for singer/songwriter Troy Millette, a Fairfax, Vermont native who has quickly earned himself a reputation as one of New England’s most promising up-and-comers. Whether performing solo, alongside violinist Dylan Gombas, or fronting the full-band project the Fire Below, Millette’s shows are guaranteed to entertain music-lovers of all kinds on the back of striking original songs, imaginative covers, and witty onstage banter.

Since arriving on the local circuit in 2010, Millette has continuously worked to hone his craft, playing hundreds of shows across the Northeast United States and Canada with esteemed touring acts such as Grace Potter, Counting Crows, Richard Marx, Rick Springfield, Trey Anastasio (Phish), Mondo Cozmo, the Ghost of Paul Revere, Dawes, the Marcus King Band, Oh Honey (now known as lovelytheband), Noah Guthrie (of America’s Got Talent and the FOX television series ‘glee’), Will Evans and Barefoot Truth, Kat Wright, Madaila, Seth Yacovone, Gang of Thieves, 8084, Jamie Lee Thurston, and more.

Winter 2019 brings forth a new chapter in Millette’s musical journey with the release of his debut EP Living With A Ghost. The record was recorded and produced with Christopher Hawthorn at Studio 150 in Burlington, VT. The single “Ghosts (Of What We Used to Be)” is currently available on all digital platforms. The remainder of the EP will be available February 8, 2018.
Chad Conant
Chad Conant is a singer/songwriter and a lover of all things banjo. Most recently a finalist for Advanced Music’s 20th Annual Singer/Songwriter competition, Chad was also a member of the Vermont-based Americana band, Coon Hill John. Chad’s songs regale us with tales of simple lives that reflect everyday truths and anxieties with a good coating of dry wit and humor. He is a native son of Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, and now calls Vergennes, VT home with his wife, Amy.

Accompanying Chad will be violinist Sophie Jane and guitarist Tim Howard.
