MORE INFO

Doc Rotten formed in Trenton, NJ during the Winter of 2017. After a few local shows, the punk rock quartet immediately went into the studio to record their debut EP Fallout. Followed by their sophomore EP Sick and Suffering six months later, they set out on their very first tour. Their blue-collar mindset and work ethic constantly push them to write, record, and tour.

Their third EP Illusion To Choose, which was produced and recorded by The Bouncing Souls’ Pete Steinkopf, released on August 31st, 2018. The band started touring in support of this release in September with shows in Japan, Europe, and North America.

Despite receiving little national press or major label support, Bob Schneider has managed to become one of the biggest acts in Austin, if not in Texas. His fans, who often discover him from being brought to his shows by their friends, are fiercely loyal. Many have attended dozens or even hundreds of shows. Thanks to these fans, Schneider has won more Austin Music Awards than any other musician, including Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals, rounding in at 54 total awards to date.

In retrospect, it appears inevitable that Bob Schneider would become an artist. He was born in Michigan and raised in Germany, where his father pursued a career as a professional opera singer. As a boy, Schneider studied piano and guitar, often performing at family parties and backing his father on drums at nightclubs throughout his youth in Germany and Texas. He went on to study art—his other primary passion and avocation—at the University of Texas El Paso, before moving to Austin and establishing himself as a musician. He performs relentlessly, creates new music compulsively, writes poetry, and regularly shows his visual art in galleries around Austin.

With his latest album, ​Blood and Bones​, Schneider further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive, and engaging songwriters working today. Blood and Bones​ captures Schneider at a unique, and distinct, place. "Most of the songs are about this phase of my life," he admits. "I'm re-married, I have a 2-year-old baby daughter who was born over two months premature because my wife had life threatening preeclampsia. So dealing with that traumatic event while getting older and looking at death in a realistic, matter of fact way, experiencing the most joy I've ever experienced along with feelings of utter despondency in a way that would have been impossible to experience earlier in my life, all comes out in the songs."

MORE INFO

In a world caught up in quick fixes and instant gratification, the music of Luke Redfield serves as a great alternative. Here you'll find albums to be enjoyed in their entirety—from track 1 to 10—preferably while sipping a nice glass of whiskey in front of a cozy fire, driving along Highway 1 with the windows down, or out walking around your neighborhood in an ethereal dusk.

Integrating elements of classic folk, indie rock, and alt-country, Redfield's songwriting explores the human condition through themes of love and landscape, adventure and inquiry—inviting all who listen to join in the dance of life.

Called "Soulful," "A talented gent," and “Playful like a young Bruce Springsteen,” Redfield has been featured by A.V. Club, American Songwriter, Daytrotter, Elmore Magazine, KCMP 89.3 The Current, and more, receiving attention for his Americana atmospheres and and poetic lyrics.

Touring the US and Europe, Redfield has shared the stage with Marissa Nadler, Cory Chisel, Gregory Alan Isakov, Hayes Carll, BJ Barham, Kyle Craft, and more, while his records feature members of Bon Iver, Peter Wolf Crier, and Andrew Bird's band.

Redfield's newest release, Love is All Around, is available now on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Bandcamp. Click here to stream and/or buy albums from Luke's collection.

MORE INFO

STIG is an all-instrumental Psychedelic Nu-Funk band based out of Asheville, North Carolina, consisting of 5 best friends from a myriad of places both geographically and musically, including Ryan Stigmon on saxophone, Thomson Knoles on keyboards, Artie Sadtler on bass, Jack McChesney on drums, and Riley Hoover on guitar. They are individually influenced by jazz, funk, metal, bluegrass, psychedelic rock, and beyond. A day in the STIG tour van is soundracked by an absurd potluck of 5 musical brains and their live shows artfully weave their improvisational nature with tight communication and 3 years of playing and growing together, to create a high energy, exploratory and engaging experience.

STIG’s music is the culmination of a democratic and highly collaborative song-writing process – their tunes are all original and always written as a group to fuse each member’s genre-crossing influences. Since forming while at Berklee College of Music in Boston, STIG has been touring the country non-stop, and developing community around their music in the Southeast region.

 

From opening for the likes of Aqueous, Nicki Bluhm and Dynamo to raging the late night stage at Some Kind Of Jam festival, STIG is constantly working to bring their groovy sound to as many smiling faces as they can, catering to the vibe and energy of the crowd. Be on the lookout for new music, tour dates, and updates from the band!

MORE INFO

 

 With roots embedded in the Colorado Rocky Mountains and a sound unhinged in the capital of Texas, Shovelin Stone is a music almost as unique as the friendship it stems from. A shared passion for old-timey bluegrass is what brought Makenzie and Zak together, but it's the unknowing joy for the moment and the obsession with the complications that life brings that continues to push the duo forward. Within heartfelt lyrics and a unique musical composition, the folk sound that projects from these two is not only going to get the audience thinking but on their feet. The road is winding but one thing is for sure that with these two at the wheel it's going to be a wild ride.

MORE INFO

Nick and Dylan of Tremble Weeds have been friends since they were kids. They grew up in the small bay area town of Benicia, CA. Sharing a love of Rock N Roll music, they decided to become musicians. After years honing their craft in the garage the two found themselves in different parts of the country. Each individually continued their musical journey, always sharing stories and songs over the phone. Finally so many years later they made the decision they had always dreamed of, get a house and start the band back up. Now living in the Mojave Desert they are living their dream by playing, recording and releasing music all day and all night.

The bands influences blend garage rock, punk blues, psychedelic, and Rock n Roll.

Most nights you’re bound to find the guys playing somewhere in the high desert and they’d love to meet you.
