The Delta Saints
The Delta Saints
Voodoo is rising from the New Music City. Not the Nashville of its country past, but a city awash in fresh talent fed by decades of tradition; dry hearts fueling the furnace of venues that always beg to be stoked. Leading the way are The Delta Saints.

Since 2007, The Delta Saints have brought feet to floors worldwide with songs like "Bird Called Angola", "Death Letter Jubilee", and their standout style of Psychedelic Voodoo Rock and Roll. In 2014 they sold out shows in six countries. Toured 50 dates with Blackberry Smoke. Played Summerfest and the Grolsch Blues Festival, among others. Released both Drink it Slow EP and a live album recorded on back-to-back sell-out nights at the acclaimed Exit/In.

Now The Delta Saints are releasing their most ambitious record to date in 2015: Bones. Recorded at Sputnik Sound Studio in Nashville with producer and Third Man Records alum Ed Spear (fresh from contributing to more than 200 recordings for artists like The White Stripes, The Shins, Brooke Waggoner, Kingswood & Tinariwen), Bones is the sound of a new beginning for the band. It's also their first album with keyboardist Nate Kremer replacing harmonica.

Kremer became a fixture of the line-up after joining the band on a European tour with only two weeks notice. He learned the band's songs while playing them on-stage in Spain, and soon became a catalyst for the band to expand their sound upward and out of definition, bringing forth psychedelic influences that have long been bubbling beneath the surface. In their own words, "There are still huge drum and bass parts. There are still massive distorted guitar solos. Ben Ringel still screams his ass off. But now there's a whole other dimension of sounds and feelings."

That new dimension is present from the first track, "Sometimes I Worry". With the end of the opening tremolo and trashcan jangle, the Saints lock into an acetylene groove that shows renewed vigor and a refined sound. Ringel's singing is smooth and surprising as always, capable of crooning through the verses but then thundering at a moment's notice. Now too is the rest of the band. They've purified their tracks. Purged them of everything unnecessary, clearing room for bigger riffs and bolder expressions, their rock and roll roots billowing into a hallucinatory haze.

Ben Azzi and Dylan Fitch make the title track "Bones" ripple and roil like black water, backed by Kremer's haunting hoodoo organ. "Heavy Hammer" is instantly recognizable for its classic Saints swagger and David Supica's funk-laced bass lines. But these tracks now stand out alongside ones like the celestial, sparse "Butte La Rose", which is lobbed into the line-up like a heartfelt hand-grenade. Along with the slithering "Zydeco", it holds not just some of the most psychedelic moments of the record, but some of the most impactful too.

By the time the last notes fade, Bones is more than an album for The Delta Saints. It is a sign of the band boldly stepping forward from the crowd and refusing to be defined by the past. Rattling their would-be chains against the old cell bars. Singing to whoever will listen that there are far greater things yet to come.
Woodshed Red
Woodshed Red
Woodshed Red hails from the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Their sound is like a train ride through the mountains where it was created. It blends the beauty of the snowy peaks, with the bends of slowly winding creeks, and the grit of the sheer rocky cliffs into an audible journey with plenty of fresh air.

Formed in May of 2013, Woodshed Red quickly gained traction in the Colorado live music scene. Comprised of fiddle, acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums, and both male and female vocals, they have a smooth sound with a bit of twang. Their live show is engaging and energetic, with a repertoire of over 150 songs which span several eras and genres, reshaped with their Americana twist. So far they've found a niche not only in playing bars and clubs, but also weddings, corporate events, and private functions.

In 2014, the band released their full album "Rosin On the Bow. You can purchase the album on iTunes here: http://tinyurl.com/l86ddke

The Outer Vibe
The Outer Vibe
Through their music and live performance, The Outer Vibe captures a “Big America” energy that is larger than a 1960s Detroit assembly line. Their sound is a collage of the motor city’s passion and power, the upbeat, good feelings of the West coast, and a cinematic southwestern nostalgia, a blend they like to call “surf disco.” The familiar, organic music supports a positive lyrical message of perseverance, maintaining relationships, and a carefree lifestyle.

The Outer Vibe’s latest music was created in collaboration with producer Brad Dollar (Grateful Dead, Keb-Mo, The National) and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta (The Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, Vampire Weekend) and will be released in early 2015.

They filled their studio with dusty vintage amps and keyboards and vintage-modeled microphones to accurately capture the sounds they desired.

When asked what the new music sounds like, the band’s immediate response is, “Clint Eastwood drinking a pina colada while listening to Dick Dale.” Offering a more introspective explanation, Dollar says, “When I listen to the latest batch of The Outer Vibe productions, I feel like I’m on a vacation I don’t want to leave. The guitars feel like a Cheshire smile on a sunny beach, the drums beat like perfect waves on the shore.

Everything stays glued together with sticky-sweet vocals, trumpets sounding from the west, and bass sounds that walked down from another planet. All at the same moment providing reflection and rejoice.”

Their new music is a follow-up to their 2012 album “Hoka Hey”, which independently achieved much success, getting top 5 request at radio in Michigan, Wisconsin and the Dakotas and licensing from ABC News’s “Good Morning, America” and West Michigan’s Baker College in 2013.
