ABOUT THE ARTIST

Often referred to by fans as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today, the 5-piece Illinois-based act not only proves that classification with their jam-packed tour schedule but also on stage every night, with youthful exuberance and a lively stage show, as reliable as it is infectious. High energy percussion, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo and fiddle weave seamlessly together to create an experience for fans that has sold out shows across the UK and the United States, filling the front rows with fans not just singing along to one tune, but singing along to all of them. “Everybody says it. We’d be nothing without our supporters. Yeah, they buy tickets and of course we love that, but when we’ve been on the road for 10 hours and walk onto a stage road weary and we see familiar faces singing along, it’s hard to describe. It's everything, really. There’s a whole lot of love there.”

Music enthusiasts are not the only ones taking note. Critics and tastemakers alike have awarded the young artists an impressive number of accolades ranging from official showcases at AmericanaFest (2018) and International Bluegrass Music Association (2016) to Whitstable UK Session of the Year (2017), a BBC Scotland Session (2017) as well as Finalist, International Song Writing Competition (2015 & 2016), Chicago’s Best Emerging Artist, Deli Magazine (2014) and Songpickr’s Best Songs Spotify Playlist (2016) among others. The young men are no strangers to the festival circuit either, having played major National and Regional Festivals such as Merlefest, Summer Camp, Red Wing Roots Music Festival and Saskatchewan Jazz Fest all across the United States, Canada and the UK. The band has also graced the stage of coveted venues such as Bluegrass Underground (TN), The Fox Theater (CO), Park West (IL), The Vogue (IN) The Station Inn (TN) The Ark (MI), and countless others.

ALSO FEATURING

BUBBLES BROWN is a two-piece early blues outfit from Chicago, IL. Bubbles (guitar, vocals) and Washboard Ben (percussion, vocals) cut their teeth on the blues deep in the subways of Chicago, busking for change and the occasional dollar.

Using only a guitar, sock cymbal, assorted percussion and a suitcase bass drum, the duo and their lean, archaic setup evoke the homespun, kitchen sink aesthetic of rural, pre-war blues and and country, while blending it into an aggressive and electricity to create a sound that is simultaneously nostalgic and distinctly progressive.

The Bubble Brown sound defies expectations, and their rich and reverent brand of the blues, country, and jazz of the 20s and 30s greatly exceeds the sum of its parts, transforming stages of any size into roadside juke joints, and skeptics into believers.
