Mixing up an unlikely concoction of vintage rock & roll and outlaw country, Cole Diamond is, depending on when you ask, either the stage name for singer/songwriter Ryan Otte or the collective handle for Otte and his Band. For years Otte spent most weekends behind a drum kit playing with too many bands to list. In the few years since “Cole Diamond” was conceived he has released an EP, received airplay on 89.3 The Current, and opened for national acts such as Corb Lund. Drawing on influences that range from Waylon Jennings and Doug Sahm to Roky Ericson and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Cole Diamond delivers a modern take on a classic sound.

MICHAEL GAY is a Minneapolis-based country folk storyteller. Starting off as a drummer and finding his way to guitar, he was inspired by the singer-songwriters of his dad’s generation--Willie Nelson, John Prine and Jerry Jeff Walker.

“I dove into that world head-first,” Michael says. “I love thrift stores, and I'd just buy whatever I could find for a dollar or two that had a name on it I recognized. 70's singer-songwriters and outlaw country was kinda what got the wheels turning because it was cheap/free at the time. But my dad's record collection is where it started to come together for me.”

Ditchweed are sweet twangy country.
