PEACH KELLI POP | BARRY HELAFONTE

Peach Kelli Pop is a band from Los Angeles, CA by way of Ottawa, Canada and was founded by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Allie Hanlon. The band is known for playing Ramones-structured rock songs: Fast tempos, 4/4 drums, layered with loud guitars, and laden with immediate, infectious vocal melodies. Hanlon’s songwriting is unique in that it encompasses great emotional profundity and the use of the abstract and imagination. Since Hanlon created Peach Kelli Pop in 2010, she has released 3 albums, a handful of 7’’s and tapes, and toured extensively (including annual trips to Japan). In that time, she also emigrated to Los Angeles where she met her bandmates: sisters Gina and Sophie Negrini (bass & guitar, respectively) and drummer Shelly Schimek.

THE SAM CHASE & THE UNTRADITIONAL

The Sam Chase & The Untraditional – San Francisco-based folk rock ‘n roll

The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you’ll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.

His backing band, The Untraditional, are descended from Norse Warriors known as The Berserkers. Old Norse literature and historians note that Berserkers fought with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury. They would work themselves into a rage before battle, consuming drugged foods, and dressed in nothing but their enemies blood. The Untraditional follow their ancestors ancient practices before every show.

THE RAD TRADS

“With a killer driving groove, New York Soul Rebels The Rad Trads’ truly show how tight they are as an ensemble while having fun at the same time.”
— Paste Magazine

When The Rad Trads formed in the Spring of 2012, they were meeting each other in New York City’s East Village for the first time, looking to play with the best musicians they could find.

Making rent playing 4 hour gigs in every bar and beer hall that would have them, the guys dominated New York City and Brooklyn with their punk-rock energy and showmanship, powerful horns, driving rhythm section, and four captivating lead vocalists. Within due time, they decided to take their show on the road.

Almost 5 years later, the Rad Trads have played on 4 Continents, headlining tours and opening for acts such as Lake Street Dive, Tom Jones, Charles Bradley, Buddy Guy, Taj Mahal, The Lone Bellow, Con Brio, and Dustbowl Revival. They have toured Europe seven times, the Middle East and played in 14 countries and 33 U.S. States.

““The Rad Trads have the insouciant charm of the pre-invasion Beatles, if the Beatles had been led by Dr. John and sung about hungover mornings instead of Hard Days Nights.””
— Cascade Blues Association

TOMMY ALEXANDER | LONG GONE JOHN

Tommy Alexander – Rock n Roll from Portland

“The downright truth about Alexander is that he is an expression of rebellion in a society that is trapped within institutional conformities and down-the-road retirement plans. Filled with an introspective and strikingly truthful style of songwriting, his music can be downright mind-bending — especially for those of us who have grown used to Pandora’s corporate jukebox and the cultural clichés that run with it.”

THE ARTISANALS

The Artisanals are a Charleston, SC based band that coalesced in late 2016. Fronted by the Charleston City Paper’s 2015 Singer-Songwriter of the Year, Johnny Delaware (formerly of SUSTO) and an all-star cast of local musicians, the Americana rock outfit has already shared the stage with global powerhouse Band of Horses on several U.S. dates. Having also played with Americana mainstays Nikki Lane, J. Roddy Walston, Daniel Romano, and Dylan LeBlanc, the band is set to break out in 2018 and has been featured in the Huffington Post, Paste Magazine, Daytrotter, PopMatters, & more.

Produced by The Artisanals with Wolfgang Zimmerman, the forthcoming LP Literally, Anywhere is the first ever record to come out of the Magic Barn–a studio-converted barn in Iowa that was built around the Neve console and gear from New York City’s now-defunct Magic Shop Studio. Open from 1988 until March of 2016, the Magic Shop was a sought-after studio beloved by countless legends like Lou Reed and Blondie, for its vintage gear. Arcade Fire tracked The Suburbs there, and David Bowie recorded his last two albums, including Blackstar, at the Soho spot.

With sonic influences ranging from the dream-pop work of George Harrison (“Angel 42”) to the stone-cold radio hits of bands like the Killers (“Roll With It”), the nine-track LP showcases Delaware and Houle’s knack for writing hooks as well as their ear for quality production. The album utilizes everything from a gong, organ, piano, sitar, French horn, trombone, and koto, to a string section sourced from the nearby University of Iowa. There’s no filler here; from start to finish, this record is a straight banger.

CALEB CAUDLE

Growing up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, singer-songwriter Caleb Caudle was raised on rock n’ roll and Southern hospitality. Influenced by bands like The Clash and Velvet Underground, Caudle was playing North Carolina’s punk rock circuit by the age of 15. Naturally, his music matured with his age and he became more lyrically driven, adopting a love for collecting vinyl. In 2012, he decided to quit his day job and focus solely on music — five years and four albums later, Caudle is gaining the traction he deserves. He was recently dubbed “the musical equivalent of high-proof bourbon – rich in flavor, with a subtle, satisfying bite,” by Rolling Stone editors for their list of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know”. He’s played Nashville’s famed AmericanaFest multiple times and his song, “Borrowed Smiles” was featured on last season’s dramatic season finale of CMT’s Nashville. And as 2018 approaches, he’s not slowly down; he’s on the lineup for the 11th Annual Cayamo, the musical cruise that travels from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico, and Belize, next to icons like John Prine, Buddy Miller, Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Lee Ann Womack. And most importantly, he’s gearing up to release his eighth and most refined album yet, Crushed Coins.

Caleb Caudle has always been busy, but in his eyes, things started to really change in 2012, when he released Tobacco Town. While the record was built on a “real shoestring budget” at a friends house, Caudle wanted to replicate the stripped-down feeling of a live performance and gave fans an idea of what to expect. With the intent to tour, he did just that — traveling around the country playing medium-sized clubs and venues, while simultaneously working on 2014’s Paint Another Layer On My Heart. This time, he wanted to make a bonafide studio record; complete with Lydia Loveless’ sultry backing vocals, the Bruce Springsteen-inspired approach to classic country was a notable transformation in Caudle’s sound. He continued to tour, gaining new listeners, and started garnering media attention. In 2016, he released Carolina Ghost. The album took the leap into real country, in his own words, “About as country as I’ll ever go.” No Depression noted that the record had “a nice progression, sonically and emotionally,” while American Songwriter described it as, “an album that feels pure, natural, and unconcerned with radio play.” Meanwhile, The Bitter Southerner simply put it that, “In a just world, he would be on every country radio station.”
