Laura brings multi-instrumentalism to a new level to her Americana folk-grass tunes! Rappin’ on a kick drum with one foot and tappin’ on a tambourine with the other; all the while, hands on her guitar and mouth on her harp.
The John Payton Project is a funk, reggae, ska, power pop, rockin’ blues explosion!
At a JPP show the band might take you from a deep reggae groove to a Talking Heads cover, from touches of Band of Gypsies-era Hendrix to flashes of eighties Bowie, weaving a kaleidoscopic soundscape that spans decades and nations. Not disjointed, but nebulous; tight, but soulful; frenetic, but funky, and always so very danceable.
Rochester, NY native Chris Bethmann’s style is hard to pin down. See him solo, troubadour style in a brewery, and you might call him folk or country. Listen to his current EP Naked Bourbon (December 2018) and you hear influences like Eric Church, Jason Isbell, James McMurtry, and John Mayer. He’s a capable picker, and an innovative lyricist raised in a rock ‘n roll tradition. He’s an up and coming Americana artist with deep Western, NY roots: honest, authentic, and genuine.
“The Chinchillas are in between honky-tonk’s “Aww shucks” and rock ‘n’ roll’s “Aww ***k it.” The band is the alt to the nth degree and the bang to the American beer joint’s textbook twang. The Chinchillas are kinda, sorta like The Replacements without as big of a death wish. Hysterically deadpan and insightful, front man Pete Anvelt is one of the best songwriters I know.” – Frank De Blase / CITY Newspaper
The Chinchillas were formed in 1985 in Rochester, NY out of the remnants of popular area bands The Press Tones, Hit and Run, and Omawahozen. The band still today retains the original lineup of Peter Anvelt (guitar, vocals), Bill Corbett (bass, vocals), Bill Ribas (lead guitar) and Paul Ruske (drums).
Devin Tuel may consider herself to be an artist meant for a different time, but she now finds herself inhabiting her own true place. The singer-songwriter is at home in Upstate NY reflecting on her third album, Happier Now, released under her nom de plume, Native Harrow, as well as the difficult sojourn the former ballerina and classically trained singer has had to traverse to become the writer and performer she was meant to be. “This record is about becoming your own advocate. Realizing that maybe you are different in several or a myriad of ways and that that is okay. And further, it is about me becoming a grown woman,” Tuel says.
Happier Now (out April 12 on Different Time Records), is a set of nine songs recorded and mixed by Alex Hall (JD McPherson, The Cactus Blossoms, Pokey LaFarge) at Chicago’s Reliable Recorders. The album was co-produced by Hall, Tuel, and her bandmate, multi-instrumentalist Stephen Harms.
Native Harrow cuts out clear and vibrant narratives on fear, love, the open road, ill-fated relationships, and coping with the state of the world. “I wanted to share that I made it out of my own thunderstorm. I had experienced the high peaks and very low valleys of my twenties. I saw more of the world on my own, got through challenges, reveled in true moments of triumph… but all the while the world around me was growing louder, wilder, and scarier. Music for me is a place to be soft. This album was my place to feel it all.”
Teressa Wilcox is a native of Rochester, NY. Her work combines classic American songwriting with bombastic high-energy rock and roll. With a career that has spanned numerous genres, it’s hard to pigeonhole her sound. Wilcox has collaborated with artists like Sam Andrew (of Big Brother and the Holding Company), penned a Top 40 hit during a stint in London, and published work through acclaimed film and theater lyricist Don Black. She has appeared live with jazz artists like Chet Catallo (of Spyro Gyra) and Al Chez (from The World’s Most Dangerous Band). She has opened for everyone from Asia to Lucinda Williams.
Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, Los Angeles based Singer/Songwriter, Rees Finley, released his debut EP, “Songs 1-5” in the summer of 2017. Rees’ music is always melodic, frequently neurotic, and simultaneously sarcastic and sentimental. On record, Finley ranges from 80’s style synth pop, to retro Motown funk to over driven alt-rock, often in the span of one song.
Throughout 2018, Finley released four singles and performed frequently throughout Southern California. In early 2019 he began work on his first full length with producer, Wolfy – with the album expected to be released this summer. http://www.reesfinley.com/
“Combine the phrasing and style of Ben Folds and the syntax of Green Day. Do you hear it? Yeah, you do. Because this is an interesting, clever songwriting style that is just about as ‘timeless’ as alt rock can get. The intricate songwriting elements even sometimes feel like Queen.” – Ear To The Ground
“We just can’t get enough of Rees Finley – the last time we checked in with him, we were digging his ode to the downtrodden, ‘The Band Broke Up.’ This time around he’s released another juicy frenetic pop nugget called ‘Talk to Me.’ This LA solo artist really knows how to write a pop hook – fans of Maroon 5 or Bruno Mars will be into his stuff” – Buffablog
Eclectic and energetic mix of rock/blues/soul from the 50’s to the present!
The East End Drifters deliver great music for sharing with friends! Joe’s a bluesman endowed with a powerful voice, picking prowess, and a harp styling that hearkens back to Little Walter, and Pete’s fat and greasy guitar lines and solos grab you and carry you off. Together, the Fornieri brother’s vocals move the crowd as the band belts out tunes from the 50’s to the present. Matt McNulty lays down the foundation with punchy, butt moving bass lines, and locks in with the versatile, dynamic and exciting Mike Morgan on drums, creating a potent toe-thumping groove. You need to experience this unique and spirited mix of Rock & Roll with Soul!
