Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the "ideal musician of the 21st Century", Mike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist, composer, and educator living in Boston, acclaimed by the NY Times for his "vital rich-hued solo playing". While still studying at the Juilliard School, Mike joined Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Ensemble, and shortly thereafter also joined Mark O’Connor’s Appalachia Waltz Trio, which he played in for over three years. Mike has also toured extensively with Darol Anger’s Republic of Strings and The Knights orchestra. After becoming one of the first wave of cellists to adopt a strap in order to stand while playing, Mike was the first standing cellist to perform at Carnegie Hall, which the NY Times called "Breathless ... Half dance, half dare."

Emerging as a songwriter and solo artist with his debut album, “Stowaways,” Charlie Rose already has a long list of credits as a multi-instrumentalist and studio musician. He has worked with many well known artists, including Aoife O'Donovan, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Johnny Irion, Jonathan Edwards, Jocie Adams, Josh Ritter, and Rose Cousins. 

He has played pedal steel, guitar, banjo, upright bass, horns, cello, and sung on records produced by Jeff Tweedy, Patrick Sansone, Tucker Martine, Zachariah Hickman, Bruce Kaphan, and many other heavy talents.

“Stowaways” is an extraordinary first effort, a fully-realized vision by a songwriter coming into his own. Over the years, as he crisscrossed the globe with various artists in a variety of contexts, Rose amassed an impressive collection of material. Like stowaways tucked away in the belly of a vessel, the songs just needed to be coaxed out of hiding, brushed off, and shown to the world.
