      Samantha Fish Is Playin’ Up a Storm on New Ruf Records CD, Black Wind Howlin’, Due September 10 Follow-Up Album to Her Blues Music Award-Winning Debut Was Produced by Mike Zito and Features Guest Appearances by Zito, Yonrico Scott, Charlie Wooton and Paul Thorn

      KANSAS CITY, MO – Ruf Records announces a September 10 U.S. release date for Black Wind Howlin’, the new CD from blues-rock guitarist/singer Samantha Fish and follow-up to her 2012 Blues Music Award-winning label debut, Runaway. Produced by Mike Zito, who did the same honors on her last album, Black Wind Howlin’ was recorded at Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana, and features Samantha’s blazing guitar and vocals backed by Mike Zito on guitar and vocals, plus his fellow Royal Southern Brotherhood members Yonrico Scott on drums/percussion and Charlie Wooton on bass. Special guests include Paul Thorn on vocals, Johnny Sansone on harmonica and Bo Thomas on fiddle.

      Kansas City-based Samantha Fish has been on a major roll ever since she teamed up with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde on Ruf’s 2011 release, Girls with Guitars, and fueled by the trio’s Blues Caravan tour of Europe and the U.S., created an international buzz in the blues world. Later that same year she recorded Runaway, her solo debut on Ruf, which mixed gutsy riff-blues rockers like “Down In The Swamp” with the mellow small-hours jazz of “Feelin’ Alright,” while marinating her songwriting in the groove of the Rolling Stones and even tipping a hat to Heart. “It’s all the sounds I grew up with,” she explained at the time, “with my own spin.” Earlier this year Samantha joined labelmate Devon Allman for a sultry duet of the Tom Petty classic, “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” that appeared on Devon’s Turquoise CD and accompanying video.

      Hitting a receptive international blues and rock press, Runaway was hailed as a thrilling opening statement, earning a string of rave reviews and radio airplay, climaxed by her winning the Blues Music Award (BMA) for “Best New Artist Debut” in 2012. “I’m truly humbled by the recognition,” Samantha said afterward. “I can barely wait to make record number two…”

      Now, the wait is over, as Samantha Fish unleashes a major storm of her trademark guitar work and soulful vocals on Black Wind Howlin’. “It has a rebellious streak,” says the bandleader of her game-changing new album, “and a prevalent theme is, ‘I’m not gonna take your sh*t anymore…’”
      No “sophomore slump” here, as Black Wind Howlin’ leaps from the speakers with 12 smoking tracks that chart Samantha’s evolution as songwriter, gunslinger and lyricist. “Since completing Runaway back in 2011, I’ve been on tour pretty much non-stop,” she proclaims. “I’ve spent a lot of time writing, playing and listening to music. I feel like the themes and the sound of my music have matured. To me, it’s about the human experience from my perspective, as well as people I’ve come into contact with over the last few years.”

      Rather than trying to duplicate what she accomplished on her first success, Samantha re-defines her sound throughout the tracks on Black Wind Howlin’. She can be brutally rocking on cuts like the tour bus snapshot of “Miles To Go” (“Twelve hours to Reno/ten hours til the next show”), the swaggering “Sucker Born” (“Vegas left me weary, LA bled me dry/skating on fumes as I crossed the Nevada line…”) and the venomous “Go To Hell” (“Oh, this ain’t my first rodeo/You hit yourself a dead end/Your voodoo eyes, ain’t gonna cast a spell/So you can go to hell!”). “I’ve become tougher,” she notes of these head-banging moments, “and I think that was reflected in the sound we went for.”

      And yet, elsewhere, backed by the versatile production of longtime collaborator Mike Zito, you’ll find Samantha shifting gears to the aching slide-guitar balladry of “Over You” (“Echoing words, said I’d never make it on my own…”) and the redemptive country song, “Last September” (“Don’t remember the curves of my face/Can’t feel the warmth in my embrace/Well I’m here to remind you…”).

      She might stop off for a gritty cover of Howlin’ Wolf’s “Who’s Been Talking,” and co-wrote “Go to Hell” with Zito, but all other tracks are Samantha’s self-penned originals, and it’s a mix that will keep listeners on their toes. “I wanted this record to have a modern rocking sound,” she explains of the album’s vibe. “I also wanted it to have elements of Americana, country and roots.”

      For Samantha, the recording sessions proved just as rewarding as the writing “I had a dream team of musicians and special guests,” she recalls. “And Dockside Studios quickly became one of my favorite places on earth.”

      It hasn’t been that long since a teenaged Samantha Fish first started showing up at her local Kansas City blues club, Knuckleheads Saloon, and began soaking up the sounds of visiting modern blues guitar masters like Mike Zito and Tab Benoit, then going back to ’80s heroes like Stevie Ray Vaughan and following the lineage to the pre-war Delta masters. “I fell in love with it,” she told Premier Guitar of her growing passion for the form, “and started doing my homework by listening to the old guys like Son House and Skip James.”

      With those influences as her template, Samantha incorporated the sounds of the classic rock of The Rolling Stones and Tom Petty, alongside contemporary artists like Sheryl Crow and The Black Crowes, in putting together a sound that would become her own.

      By the age of 18, Samantha had settled on a searing lead guitar style that expressed her own voice rather than mimicking clichéd blues licks note-for-note. She quickly broke into a dues-paying period on the Kansas City jam circuit: an apprenticeship at the sharp end that tightened her musical chops, polished her stagecraft and gave her the grit to overcome occasional skepticism about her age, hair tone and gender. “I always hated the idea of the gimmick,” she told Premier Guitar. “People come out just because you are a girl, but then you have so much more to prove once you get them in the door.” And Samantha has delivered on that promise, as evidenced by one listen to the new recording. “I really got to do exactly what I wanted to do on Black Wind Howlin’,” she says, “and I’m incredibly proud of it.”

      Samantha Fish will support the release of her new album with constant touring. For more information on the artist, visit www.samanthafish.com and www.rufrecords.de.

        Sponsored by KJHK and Little Bear Graphics
        Hosted by 2013 Air Guitar World Champ Eric "Mean" Melin!

        You have to see it to believe it. Air superiority wanted to represent LFK. No guitars allowed. This is an official qualifying competition that feeds into the Air Guitar World Championships in Finland!

        Come witness an historic event - Lawrence's second official competitive air guitar show! Last year's show was insane, as two Lawrence-based shredders, Rockward Silence and Eddie Hans Flailin', advanced at The Bottleneck, through the Semifinals, all the way to US Air Guitar National Finals in Austin TX! This year, we're looking for some more local talent to show off some ridiculous facemelting skills for a chance to perform on the world stage.

        A panel of celebrity judges will choose two winners from this show to advance in bracketed international air guitar competition. Winners from US Air Guitar shows across the country will be flown to a-yet-to-be-disclosed city in late July/early August to compete in the US Air Guitar National Championships for the crown of US Air Guitar Champion. The US champ will then be sent to Oulu, Finland later that month to represent the USA in the World Championships, where he or she will compete against national champions from all around the world.

        Founded in 2003, US Air Guitar is the official Air Guitar Association of the United States and is responsible for operating the US Air Guitar Championships, official regional events, and specialized championships. US Air Guitar is devoted to taking our nation's unofficial pastime out of the bedroom and putting it up on the world stage. US Air Guitar is an official member of the World Air Guitar Association.

        In Round 1, each competitor performs to a song of their own choosing. In Round 2, the top competitors from Round 1 perform to a surprise compulsory song. In each round, contestants perform for one minute of a song and are judged on a combination of technical merit, stage presence, and “airness." All guitars must be invisible. In each city, the jury is a panel of independent judges. The results of the jury cannot be protested.

                          The Steel Wheels

                          The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

                          The Steel Wheels is an amalgamation of hard work and easy rapport. The band is renowned for their raw energy and chemistry on stage, where they often cluster tightly around a single microphone to adorn Trent Wagler’s unmistakable tenor with bell-clear four-part harmonies inspired by their shared Mennonite heritage. Add to this Eric Brubaker’s lively and evocative fiddle, Brian Dickel’s grounded yet buoyant upright bass, and Jay Lapp’s signature mandolin style, and it’s no surprise that The Steel Wheels have enthralled the contemporary Americana scene.

                          Their breakout album, Red Wing, garnered critical praise and enjoyed tremendous success on the radio. It spent 13 weeks on the Americana Music Association’s Top 40 Chart, where it reached the number 15 slot, and cracked the Euro Americana Chart top 10. Red Wing ranked 70th out of the top 100 Americana albums of 2010 and second out of all independent releases (Americana Music Association). The Steel Wheels were nominated for five Independent Music Awards in 2010, with “Nothing You Can’t Lose” taking top honors as Best Country Song. The Steel Wheels continue to take the Americana scene by storm with their latest album, Lay Down, Lay Low, which lingered for 10 weeks on the AMA’s Top 40 Chart. NPR named “Rain in the Valley” their Song of the Day, marveling that the “heavy hymn […] is sparse and dense all at once.” Already celebrated as the darlings of Merlefest 2012, the band looks forward to further accolades during a phenomenal festival line-up.

                          As the band thrives, so do their partnerships with local businesses, artisans, and charitable organizations. The values portrayed in their music—devotion to roots, community, and family—are a way of life for The Steel Wheels, and this is reflected in everything from production process and booking agency to merchandise and touring. For the past three years, they have performed an annual SpokeSongs bicycle music tour, during which band members tow their instruments, equipment, and merchandise from one gig to another via bicycle and blog about their adventures. Last year’s tour spanned 11 days, 550 miles, and 10 shows. This year’s tour included multiple charity rides, such as Lose The Training Wheels, Charity Ride for Kids, and Wheels Up for Cory.

                          The band’s merchandise represents a host of grassroots connections to people and businesses. Lucas Roasting Company, located just outside of Harrisonburg, created “Halfway to Heaven” dark roast coffee in honor of their friends The Steel Wheels. Blue Mountain Brewery, located on Afton Mountain in Virginia, hosted the band when they were just getting started and now sells a “Steel Wheels ESB.” The Livery’s master brewer rode with the band on their second bike tour and, soon after, created their “Steel Wheels Stout.” The band’s T-shirts are made in downtown Harrisonburg, and a potter who is a childhood friend of Jay’s makes their mugs. Each business is local for the band, and each product is intimately woven into their narrative. The Steel Wheels are proof that music remains a viable and sustaining force for connection in our world.

                            Mantis

                            Taylor Scott and Paul Ollinger, known as Mantis, are a relentless duo. Having begun their musical careers with metal & deathcore, the transition to heavy bass music was not so much a step down in intensity, but a slide into a world with spectacular tools to mix dense layers of music in new ways, and deploy it with force. Mantis was formed in early 2011 to test the boundaries of metal-influenced production, and plunge the result into a wash of haunting atmospheres. Mantis wants to provide “music to make you feel like you’re somewhere else, and you’ve never been more stoked to be there.”


                            With that target in sight, 2011 was a smashing first year; the momentum began in Atlanta, and overflowed with releases on labels such as Play Me, Heavy Artillery, BroTown Records, & Abducted Records. A standard was set with 2011's "All Worlds", their first EP, breaking the top 10 on Beatport's Dubstep releases, and held with 2012's "Futures" scoring #5 on Beatport's overall chart. The support of tastemakers such as Liquid Stranger, Downlink, Figure, Cyberoptics, Diesel, Genetix, Persist, & Sluggo, points to an accomplishment of musical influence on an international scale, and the potential for much more.

                            A history in Atlanta's metal scene, playing in acts such as WLTP and Attila, provides Mantis' cornerstone of fierce stage skills. Having become known across the USA for throwing down an aggressive live show with unmatched energy and only the heaviest bass music, Mantis' reputation stands as being one of the gnarliest new production teams in the scene.

                            With packed crowds at hand, and Beatport charts at their feet, only one goal remains- to raise the awareness of metal-influenced bass music... oh, and world domination.

                                      At just 20 years old, Weaver has brought a fresh perspective to the music scene with thought-provoking lyrics and a psychedelic, hip-hop flare. Clearly inspired by the sounds of the 90’s rap era and the messages within classic reggae music, the content of his work is both progressive and uplifting. Having captured the attention of listeners across the Midwest, the ripples of Weaver’s progress are reaching beyond his local beginnings in Lawrence, Kansas. He continues to experiment with his sound, sometimes incorporating a live band into his performances. Listeners are drawn to his innovative approach and inviting, interactive stage presence. There is much to be anticipated from this young artist.

                                          Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys

                                          He‟s been known as the co-founder of the three-time Grammy nominated BR549, the honky-tonk
                                          heroes that almost single-handedly lit and carried the blowtorch for the mid-„90s alternative country
                                          explosion. He‟s been hailed as „The Hillbilly Renaissance Man‟ for his subsequent successes as a
                                          songwriter, performer, producer and musical theater director. Now after more than a decade as one of
                                          the most uncompromising and consistent talents in the American roots music movement, Chuck
                                          Mead at last emerges with the most anticipated role of his entire career: Solo Artist.
                                          With Journeyman’s Wager, Chuck Mead throws down the gauntlet with an album that defies all
                                          sonic expectations while re-defining his position as one of the hardest-working artists in the business.
                                          “I respect the term „journeyman‟,” Mead says, “because that‟s I what consider myself. I‟ve been living
                                          by my wits musically for more than 20 years now, going from job to job and doing them all pretty well.
                                          Certainly there‟s a hustle to what I do, but there‟s always been a gambling aspect to it, too. With this
                                          album, it‟s finally all me going all-in. It‟s a record that challenges listeners in a good way. Best of all,
                                          I‟ve challenged myself.”
                                          Produced by Grammy-winner Ray Kennedy, the eleven tracks on Journeyman’s Wager embody not
                                          only the core of country music, but also the pulse of pop, R&B, hillbilly rock, Gospel and beyond. “Why
                                          be confined by barriers or genres?” Chuck asks. “As far as I‟m concerned, it‟s all American Music.
                                          These are the sounds that made up my musical vocabulary. I still believe that American Music is
                                          about real things, good stories and unique songs. And I‟m willing to bet that most everyone else does,
                                          too.”
                                          “It‟s hard to believe that it‟s taken him this long to make a solo record,” says producer/engineer Ray
                                          Kennedy, best known for his work on classic albums by Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle. “What sets
                                          Chuck apart from so many artists is that he‟s a genuine hard-working, blue-collar performer. I hate the
                                          word „old-school‟ but we didn‟t want this album to sound like a lot of modern records where everything
                                          is over-tweaked and perfect. We knew we had to make it intimate and real.” Kennedy recorded the
                                          entire album analog on two-inch tape, in a studio full of both state-of-the art and vintage equipment
                                          that included „60s tube microphones, a Vox Continental organ, and a badass band that featured
                                          Kenny Vaughn (Marty Stuart), Audley Freed (The Black Crowes), Mark Miller (BR549), Mark Horn
                                          (The Derailers), Dave Roe (Johnny Cash), Mike Henderson (The SteelDrivers), Pat Sivers (The
                                          Everly Brothers) and Jen Gunderman (The Jayhawks). “Chuck is the same in the studio as he is on
                                          stage,” Kennedy explains. “He loves working without a net. There are a lot of multiple voices singing
                                          into one microphone and the band playing together in one room. Most of all, it‟s an album that really
                                          represents his worldview song-wise. It has humor, intelligence, sarcasm, a bit of politics and a lot of
                                          spontaneity. Plus he‟s singing his ass off. Chuck doesn‟t have a model; he really is a journeyman in
                                          that songwriting and entertaining is his life.”
                                          For Mead, life and music have always been irrevocably intertwined. “I joined my first band at 12 years
                                          old,” he explains with a laugh. “Ruint me forever.” Throughout his 20s, he led several groups in and
                                          around his hometown of Lawrence, Kansas, including the popular Mid-western cult band The
                                          Homestead Grays. By the early „90s, Chuck found himself as an itinerant musician on Nashville‟s
                                          then-seedy Lower Broadway. It was a place in time where a performer armed with only the vision of a
                                          sonically relentless hillbilly band with nothing to lose could try anything. Within months, Mead cofounded
                                          a quintet that began playing must-see marathon sets in the front window of bar/bootery
                                          Robert‟s Western World. Seven albums, three Grammy nominations and millions of worldwide fans
                                          later, BR549 would become one of the most improbable success stories of the past decade.
                                          “BR549 is on extended hiatus,” Chuck now says. “We were – and remain – a family, and taking a
                                          break from each other will make us miss each other more. We survived the highs, the lows and all the
                                          hype, and we still had fun making music we love. But it was also time for me to do my own thing.”
                                          With the exception of occasional reunions on Prairie Home Companion (at the behest of longtime fan
                                          Garrison Keillor) and benefits for favorite charities, Mead‟s post-BR career soon became known as
                                          much for its continued integrity as for its eclecticism. He founded the touring collective The Hillbilly All-
                                          Stars featuring members of The Mavericks, co-produced acclaimed tribute albums to Johnny Cash
                                          and Waylon Jennings, guest-lectured on „The Sociology of Modern American Culture‟ at Vanderbilt
                                          University, and became a staff writer at one of Nashville‟s top song publishers. In 2007, he was
                                          named Musical Director of Million Dollar Quartet, the new hit stage musical based on the night in 1956
                                          that Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley came together for an impromptu
                                          jam session. “It‟s been incredibly liberating to do all these things I‟ve never done before,” Chuck says.
                                          “But most of all, I wanted to call my own shots and make a record that mattered.”
                                          Ten of the eleven tracks on Journeyman’s Wager are co-written by Mead, who‟d spent the past year
                                          working with such idiosyncratic and award-winning songwriters as Tia Sillers, Bobby Huff, Greg
                                          Crowe, Patrick Davis, Angeleena Presley, Mark Collie and Jon & Sally Tiven. The album roars out of
                                          the gate with the twanging highway stomp of “Out On The Natchez Trail”, and runs head-on into the
                                          sinister mystery of “Gun Metal Grey”. The horn-powered “She Got The Ring (I Got The Finger)” is a
                                          sly nod to Jerry Reed‟s “She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)”. There‟s classic country-pop
                                          wisdom in “Albuquerque”, gentle insight in “Up On Edge Hill”, and hard-driving good times in “I Wish It
                                          Was Friday”. “A Long Time Ago” is a paean of pedal-steel regret, while “After The Last Witness Is
                                          Gone” is a bold testimonial that‟s equal parts honky-tonk and roadhouse rocker. “In A Song” may be
                                          the album‟s genuine showstopper, a gloriously sanctified testament to the Everlasting Church Of
                                          Music. The disc‟s sole cover is a fiery version – complete with yodeling – of George Harrison‟s “Old
                                          Brown Shoe”, the obscure Beatles b-side from “The Ballad Of John & Yoko”. The album closes with
                                          the assured shuffle-funk of “No Requests”, a song whose chorus is a potent statement of purpose
                                          from an artist who is now truly his own man.
                                          “Even when BR549 were being called a throwback act, we never allowed ourselves to be classified,”
                                          says Chuck. “The key was to always bring something new to everything we did. Today my slate is
                                          cleaner than ever before. This album is all me, doing what comes naturally.” For Chuck Mead, the
                                          time has come for one of Americana‟s most uncommon artists to finally step out, step up and be
                                          heard on his own unique terms. And in a game where sure bets are rarely the real deal, one
                                          singer/songwriter/performer is again unafraid to lay it all on the line. “I mean everything I say on this
                                          album,” Chuck Mead says. “You can tell it with a wink and a smile, but it‟s still the truth. And the truth
                                          is that Journeyman’s Wager is the culmination of everything I‟ve learned. These are my decisions.
                                          This is my music.”

                                            Play Dead

                                            As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead in 2015, this group of talented and eclectic musicians has come together to celebrate the remarkable repertoire and live experience of the Grateful Dead. More than what you’d expect from a typical tribute band, this group embraces the foundation of what made the Dead’s sound so unique by creating a landscape of masterful improvisation, rich harmonies and beautiful melodies across all genres of music.
                                            While this group of players has never before taken the stage together, they have all been in connection for more than 20 years and possess over a century of experience writing, teaching, performing and producing music. Boerger and Comparato have played and performed together in the L.A. Ramblers, The Deal, The Coyote Project and most recently Stranger Tractor. Additionally Boerger’s music roots include Tofu Teddy, The Red Zone, The Parlor Frogs, Diamond Eyed Jack & Flint Gray. Hoopes’ credits include The EZ Pieces, Ardys & Bradford, The Secondhands and with Mahoney, venture back into the 80’s with the east coast jam band MoonRocks. Hoopes and Hamm have played together in The Yards since 2003. Bassett and Mahoney are a seasoned and accomplished percussion duo with numerous credits for session work as well as their performances in their bands Sunu (in which both Bassett and Hamm play), Truckstop Honeymoon and 40 Watt Dreams (in which Mahoney play).

                                            Together Play Dead produces an uncanny rendition of a part of musical history that was genius, ahead of its time and may never be experienced again. To say the music and culture of the Grateful Dead had a profound effect on the course that music has taken over the years is a grave understatement. Whether you’re a card carrying Deadhead, a Hi-Fi music aficionado or just a music junkie who loves a good groove you will not want to miss Play Dead.

                                            J Roddy Walston & the Business

                                            The third album from J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Essential Tremors borrows its name from a nervous-system disorder that’s long plagued the band’s frontman. “It’s this condition where my hands shake―sometimes not at all, but sometimes pretty bad,” says singer/pianist/guitarist Walston. “I’ve referenced it throughout all our records in some way, but it made sense to be more open about it on this album, which is partly about owning and embracing your weirdness instead of letting it hold you captive because you don’t even want to talk about it.”

                                            For J. Roddy Walston & The Business―who formed in 2002 in Walston’s hometown of Cleveland, Tennessee―embracing weirdness means a mumble-out-loud celebration of that great and terrible burden of being human. Forcing the oft-clashing worlds of art and rock-and-roll to make nice, the band (including guitarist/vocalist Billy Gordon, bassist/vocalist Logan Davis, and drummer Steve Colmus) deals in a scrappy yet sublime sound that honors both their Southern roots and punk spirit. On Essential Tremors, J. Roddy Walston & The Business builds off that formula with a mix of heavy hooks and elegant melodies revealing their affinity for artists as disparate as Led Zeppelin, pre-disco-era Bee Gees, The Replacements, Randy Newman, and the Southern soul outfits that once populated the Stax Records label. Co-produced by Matt Wignall (Delta Spirit, Cold War Kids) and Grammy-winning producer/engineer Mark Neill (The Black Keys) at Neill’s own Soil of the South Studios (a Valdosta, Georgia-based facility where J. Roddy Walston & The Business were the first to ever record), the follow-up to 2010’s much-acclaimed self-titled sophomore album also finds the band crafting lyrics that ultimately serve as a secret language to the initiated listener.

                                            Hip-hop was built around lyrics: the art of storytelling and the power of rhyme. Fierce, aggressive and from the street, hip-hop is often filled with bravado and fronting. It’s rare to find an artist who walks it like he talks it.

                                            Staxx is that artist.

                                            Born into a tumultuous life in Taunton, Mass., and blessed with innate talent, Staxx was on his way to becoming a statistic: broken home, high school dropout, determined to be a rapper but lacking direction and focus. Despite difficult times, a hardened past and a life
                                            of struggle, music always brought him back to center. Now he’s ready to share his experiences with the world.

                                            Staxx wrote his debut album, Writin' My Mind. It was produced, recorded and mixed by respected up and coming industry producer Lü Balz, whose many credits include, but are not limited to, tracks for Juvenile, Rachel Loy, Tyga, Sugar Ray and Speech from Arrested Development, television commercials, and songs placements in major motion pictures and television series.
                                            His partnership with Staxx kicks off with first single “Turn You On,” featuring Brian Angel of Day26 (Bronx Bridge Entertainment, Inc./Fontana), launching a powerful new team and a step forward in hip-hop’s positive resurgence.

                                            “Hip-hop has changed dramatically,” says Staxx. “It has received an increasing amount of criticism over the past decade because of the downward spiral of lyrical content and the upward spiral of an electronic sound that hip-hop experts claim is NOT hip-hop. I can’t deny the fact that music has changed immensely since the emergence of hip-hop as a globally recognized genre of music. But just because the music is evolving doesn’t mean the message has to evolve with it.”

                                            What makes this young man so special is his talent for creating radio-friendly music without compromising his personal message. Staxx writes from the heart. Staxx is the best of both worlds.

                                            Staxx has been recording professionally since his late teens, working diligently to find the right producers, learn his way around a studio, and surround himself with people who could grow with him and support his vision. At 23, he met Lü Balz. “He had everything I was missing,” says Staxx. “I knew he could take me to the next level.” He also met his manager, Tony Spears. With all of the pieces in place, Staxx was ready to conquer the music industry … until one mistake brought his world to a crashing halt.

                                            Serving time, he says, was a wakeup call and a cold lesson in reality: his career was likely over, his record deal was gone, his girlfriend broke up with him and his manager wanted nothing to do with him. Released after doing his term, “I was on the verge of suicide,” he says candidly. “I was heartbroken. I drank a lot and I felt
                                            I had no purpose in my life.” Despondent and convinced that he’d lost everything, Staxx ran away with the carnival — literally. Oddly enough, it was there that he regained his drive for music, motivated by a supervisor who learned of his talent and couldn’t bear to see it
                                            wasted. He began writing again, applying himself and convincing Lü Balz and Tony Spears that he was a new Staxx. “They thought I was nothing but trouble,” he admits, “a kid with no direction in my life. I got them back onboard with my work ethic. I never stopped. They saw
                                            my drive and that I was willing to do anything to make it. I knew I was

                                            accountable for my actions and it was up to me to prove myself to them.”

                                            With a new single, upcoming debut album and new outlook, Staxx is ready to take the music world by storm. Most importantly, he says, the past has made the present stronger, and he’s looking forward to
                                            the future.

                                            “No matter where I go, because of the difficult circumstances I went through, I’ve convinced myself that I can make it through anything,” he says. “No challenge is too difficult or great for me. I recognized that over time. Some people fold and can’t take it. I deflect and deal
                                            with it because the worst thing could happen and hurt me, but it’s not going to stop me like it did before. There’s a quote I heard as a kid that has always stayed with me: ‘Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.’ I want to be inspirational and let people know that no matter how difficult the circumstances, it’s up to you to change and make something of yourself. I wrote lyrics about how if I make it or if I fail, it’s mine.

                                            “I’ve been blessed with a lot of great people in my life, friends and family who stood by me, have been hurt by me, who were there for me when all I had to offer was myself. I can’t imagine what they went through, seeing me destroying myself. I hated myself. I killed myself
                                            without killing myself and I don’t live like that today. My glass is half full now and am looking to fill it instead of seeing it half empty and draining it.”

                                            Groovement sounds like Robert Randolph and Stevie Wonder ate some New Orleans Red Hot Chili Peppers; more easily described as: high-energy funk-rock. Their catchy melodies, big harmonies, tasteful solos, and funky grooves easily create songs you can dance to. Deitra Magazine describes Groovement's music as "a surprising find of funky original tunes that got the crowd boogying out of their seats, as well as some unique renditions of unexpected covers."

                                            The playful personality and strong, soulful voice of Groovement frontman, Alex Carr, helped him win a ticket to Hollywood as one of the 2011 American Idol contestants. In addition to their decorated singer, the band posseses many years of professional experience and over 30 local award show nominations. This all-star lineup includes Adam Becker (keyboards, organ, synth); Trey Burkett (guitar, vocals); Bryan Burkhart (drums, vocals); Jacob Johnson (sax, guitar, vocals); and Randy Soller (bass, vocals).

                                            Groovement has a reputation for putting on one of the most high-energy and professional live performances around. They’ve been steadily building a following in the Northwest Arkansas/Northeast Oklahoma area by being featured at some of the region’s premier festivals: Wakarusa, Tulsa’s Mayfest, and the Backwoods Bash.

                                            Groovement’s debut album is slated for release on August 6, 2011. Following the release of the album, they plan to keep touring, promoting their music, and putting smiles on the faces of movers and groovers worldwide.

                                                Skating Polly

                                                Skating Polly, a sister duo from Oklahoma made up of Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse, formed in 2009 after a jam session at the girls’ Halloween party. Their sophomore album, Lost Wonderfuls, was produced by Exene Cervenka of X and mixed by Kliph Scurlock of The Flaming Lips. Lost Wonderfuls was released in April, 2013. They are now working on their third album, Fuzz Steilacoom, set to be released early 2014. Fuzz Steilacoom was tracked by Calvin Johnson of Beat Happening.
                                                Raised on ‘70s punk and early-‘90s alt-rock, Mayo (age 13) and Bighorse (18) mine inspiration from artists as disparate as Johnny Cash, The Ramones, NWA, Nirvana, and Bikini Kill and saturate their own songs with a raw energy reminiscent of their musical heroes. Skating Polly takes a minimalist approach to songwriting, with the two largely self-taught musicians (Bighorse plays guitar, Mayo plays a guitar/bass hybrid called a basitar, and both girls play drums and piano) crafting super-catchy melodies mainly by “messing around with our instruments and figuring out how to make cool noises,” according to Bighorse. But despite their stripped-down aesthetic, each track on Lost Wonderfuls retains a rich emotionalism that’s at turns brutally in-your-face, gut-wrenchingly tender, and irresistibly fun.
                                                Along with earning the adoration of Cervenka (whom they befriended after attending one of the X singer’s 2010 solo shows and playing their demos on a cell phone), Skating Polly has found fans in Rosanne Cash and Sean Lennon, taken the stage with punk legends like Mike Watt, and opened up for such indie heavy-hitters as Deerhoof and Band of Horses. Tapping Mayo’s dad as their tour manager, the stepsisters typically hit the road with their entire family and optimize their travel time by making up songs on their ukulele.
                                                Both Mayo and Bighorse are intent on ignoring what’s fashionable and staying true to their passion for challenging music with long-lasting appeal. “The musicians we’re most inspired by are the ones who keep on going and going, who devote their entire lives to coming up with new and different stuff,” says Mayo. “A lot of times at our shows people will come up to us and tell us, ‘Keep on doing what you’re doing, don’t ever stop’ and we’re just like, ‘Yeah—we weren’t planning on ever stopping.”

                                                        Dirtfoot is an all original, all acoustic band out of Shreveport, LA. Forming in early 2002, they've been honing their songs and craft in bars and pubs across North Louisiana, Southern Arkansas, and east Texas. After winning the Shreveport Times Battle of the Bands in January 2006, doors have really been opening. Now playing festivals like Voodoo Music Experience in NOLA, Wakarusa Music Festival in Lawrence, KS, Diversafest in Tulsa, OK, Mulberry Mountain Harvest Music Festival in Ozark, AR, Cutting Edge Music Festival in New Orleans, LA, Red River Revel in Shreveport, LA, Northgate Music Fetival, College Station, TX, etc, and playing major markets like Austin, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans, etc, things are definitely looking up.

                                                        Led by the organic writings of Matt Hazelton with each player adding his own flavor and feeling to the songs and sound of the group, Dirtfoot is a blend of eclectic styles as well as diverse personalities. By far, their claim to fame is their high energy shows and overwhelming crowd participation. They involve the fans with infectious grooves, call and response songs as well as their famous "Beancans'. Each show, bean cans (homemade shakers) are passed out to the audience which turns them into a part of the percussion section. Though all of their instruments are acoustic, their energy and ingenuity will make you swear they are plugged in. Featuring instruments ranging from an acoustic guitar, banjo, upright bass, pots n' pans, drums, bells, saxophone, xylophone and more, this band has a truly engaging sound, a real dose of Gypsy, Punk, Country, Grumble Boogie! It is like a good gumbo - you have some growling vocals, upright bass and percussion that makes a good, dark, dirty Louisiana roux, mixed heartily with some meaty rhythms, combined liberally with fresh offerings from the guitar and banjo that are like okra and tomatoes picked from your backyard garden, topped with the hot n' sexy spice of the saxophone and jazz style drums, and finally a little something magical and indescribable, and you have Dirtfoot - a delicious, spicy, dirty band that will make you stomp your feet, shake your ass and yell like a lunatic on a full moon night.

                                                              The six-piece group has made a name for itself with forceful, engaging live shows that match its provocative, bombastic rock sound. Since The Philistines' inception in late 2013, they have become one of Kansas City’s most recognized bands, supporting prominent touring acts, playing prestigious music festivals (including Middle of the Map Fest, Crossroads Music Fest, and Alejandro Escovedo’s SXSW Day Party), and receiving a healthy amount of accolades in the local media.

                                                              Engineered and produced by Paul Malinowski (Shiner), The Philistines released their debut album "The Backbone of Night" on The Record Machine in mid-2016. The full-length has been met with critical acclaim, described by The Obelisk as "a foundation of psych, garage and desert-style rock that they can shape as they please, and the control they demonstrate over that process bodes remarkably well." The album is available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats.

                                                                            Eric James Tessmer, actually named after guitar giants Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, is an extraordinary guitarist, musician, singer and songwriter hailing from Austin, TX. He is widely considered one of the most vibrant guitarists to follow in the footsteps of blues-rock legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and his namesake predecessors. His live shows have captured audiences' attention across the United States as power-packed sessions of wickedly fast and precise licks that can light the house on fire without the need for lighter fluid.

                                                                            Born and raised outside of the small town of Richland Center, Wisconsin, Tessmer began playing at a young age, inspired by his father and grandmother. In 2000, he moved to Austin at the age of 19 to play gigs with numerous musicians and bands, earning local credibility as he honed his craft of riffing with speed, power and control. He later formed his own power trio, the Eric Tessmer Band, in 2003. Through a battered '59 Fender Stratocaster producing vintage-correct tones, Eric kickstarts the engine left idling by guitar players of the past.
                                                                            Known as one of the hardest working musicians in the area, Tessmer continues to travel the U.S., Canada and Europe. Creating his own brand of ‘blues-rock soul-chedelic’ sound, he has electrified festivals such as Montreal Jazz Fest, Summerfest, and MusikFest with dialed-in precision and delivered polished performances at clubs, pubs and venues across the land. Sharing the stage with notable musicians such as Dick Dale, Anders Osborne, Tab Benoit, Monte Montgomery, Gary Clark Jr. and Chris Duarte; Tessmer has created a buzz among the blues-rock community that is quickly swarming with devoted disciples.
