After spending much of the past year touring with the band Southern Hospitality, Damon Fowler is back with his third solo project for Blind Pig Records, Sounds of Home. Damon chose swamp blues master Tab Benoit to produce and record him at Tab's rural Louisiana home studio, and their collaboration has resulted in Damon's strongest effort to date. The tension between his measured, laid-back vocal delivery and the hallmark intensity of his guitar virtuosity has never been keener, and the stories told in his songwriting here - sometimes in collaboration with long-time writing partner Ed Wright and Benoit - exhibit a combination of depth, grace and humor very few of his contemporaries can match.

The Wood Pickers is a bluegrass and country band formed in 2017. The band brings to the fore the many years of musical experience of five great players from the Columbus, Ohio music scene. The band consists of Pete Remenyi, playing resophonic guitar (Dobro), and harp; Chas Williams on mandolin and fiddle; Tom Zinser playing guitar; Heidi White on bass; and Craig Wales on the classic Gibson Mastertone banjo. Their three and four part vocal harmonies touch the high lonesome bluegrass sound, the rough and raw of old time music, and the tight sounds of country music. The band is an amalgam of several great bands including One Riot One Ranger, Death by Banjo, Grassahol, and the North Fork Rounders. The musical tastes of The Wood Pickers bring together the various traditions of these bands to combine for a mix of traditional bluegrass, modern bluegrass, country music, blues, and original material.

The roots of Dead Centric started in the summer of 2015 after drummer Curt was inspired by the Grateful Dead's Fare Thee Well concerts to put together a band celebrating the music of the Grateful Dead.

The early incarnation of the band was called InfraDead which never made it out of the basement. There were some line-up changes which resulted in InfraDead bass player Todd taking over as lead singer and guitarist and bringing in his long time friend/bass player Eric to complete the three piece which resulted in the Three Man Dead Band. 

The Three Man Dead band picked up keys player, Dave, from Oxford and played a handful of gigs from August 2016 until their last show January 2017. 

Determined to keep the spirit of the Dead music going, Curt, decided to forge ahead and form a new band. Dead Centric was born in July 2017 with new lead singer/guitarist, Tom, and bass/vocalist, Jim. Josh (keys/vocals) and Joe (guitar/vocals) joined in 2018 to complete the current dome crushing line-up.

Dead Centric plays music "centered" on the music and free flowing spirit of the Grateful Dead but are not a 100% Grateful Dead tribute band. We expand outside the bounds of the Dead to explore the related directions of the Allman Brothers, Phish, Widespread Panic, and many others.

The music never stops..... and the journey continues...

There are only a few rules. It should be heavy groove. It should make youwant to move. Overall,I’ve further developed the sound people are used to.”“You hear about different forms of magic around the world,” he goes on. “The West, ingeneral, has its own voodoo influenced by the blues. That’s what shaped me as amusician growing up in this country. It’s hard to put in the words, but you know it whenyou hear it.”You hear it in everything that BoomBox has done thus far. Over the course of fouralbums, the group has become a streaming favorite with numerous tracks crackingamillion plays on Spotify. Moreover, they’ve made audiences groove everywhere fromElectric ForestandHangout Music FestivaltoHigh Sierra Music Festival.In the end, the new music kicks off the brightest and boldest chapter yet for Godchaux.“Our bestside is somewhat medicinal,” he leaves off. “All of the rhythms, melodies, andfrequencies add up to these healing properties. I hope people feel rejuvenated and re-focused on some level when they hear us. That’sWestern Voodoo.”

On their self-titled 2017 debut album, the boundary-breaking Memphis combo Southern Avenue sparked a one-band musical revolution, embodying an effortlessly organic soul/blues/R&B fusion that reflects the band members' diverse roots as well as their deep commitment to their chosen style. On their second album Keep On, set for release on May 10, 2019 via Concord Records, the dynamic outfit expands its gritty musical vision to embrace new musical challenges and a more expansive creative vision.

Southern Avenue combines the talents of a prodigiously talented set of young musicians who bring their individual backgrounds to the table to create music that carries the Southern soul legacy into the 21st century, spanning the band members' wide-ranging musical interests while showcasing the powerful chemistry and electrifying live show that they've honed through extensive stage and studio experience. Since the release of their debut, Southern Avenue has played in over a dozen countries and wowed audiences at such festivals as Bonnaroo, Firefly, Electric Forest and Lockn’.

Guitar phenom Ori Naftaly originally built his reputation in his native Israel before joining forces with deeply expressive Memphis-bred singer Tierinii Jackson and her subtly powerful drummer sister Tikyra Jackson. The band's lineup is rounded out by versatile keyboardist Jeremy Powell, an early alumnus of Stax Records' renowned music academy.

Keep On brilliantly captures Southern Avenue's combustible chemistry, with the emotion-charged energy of such distinctive originals as "Whiskey Love," "Savior," "Too Good for You" and "We Are Not So Different" reflecting the players' evolving talents as well as the influence of the extensive roadwork that they've invested in the band. The musicians recorded the album with producer Johnny Black (Jessie J, Daughtry, Estelle) at Memphis' legendary Sam Phillips Recording, with guest appearances by seminal Stax Records artist William Bell, noted Memphis musician Gage Markey (who serves as guest bassist on most of the album) and a horn section comprised of Art Edmaiston (JJ Grey & Mofro, Gregg Allman) and Marc Franklin (The Bo-Keys, Gregg Allman).

"Ruby was born and raised in Morgantown, West Virginia. At age 3, she began classical training on the violin which continued into college at West Virginia University. In her adult years, she branched out from classical violin, and began a lifelong adventure as a musical performer in multiple bands spanning from rock-n-roll to honky-tonk. In the studio, she’s recorded on cello, mandolin, bass, and piano, but typically performs live with violin, guitar, viola, and ukulele. 
As a soloist, Ruby draws upon a lifetime of experience as a songwriter and live performer, creating a unique collaboration of musical styles including elements of her Appalachian roots, classical training, rock, blues, country, and old-time music to forge her own original genre she’s coined “Mountain Soul.”
Ruby’s musical techniques and smooth, soulful vocals leave audiences everywhere mesmerized."
