About the bands…

Joseph Huber-  Singer/Songwriter/Multi-Instrumentalist Joseph Huber was a founding member of the .357 String Band–a group that, despite its abrupt break-up, still continues to gain popularity and is known as one of the most influential groups in the recent insurgent underground country and bluegrass movement. Having moved from .357, Huber has honed his songwriting abilities immensely and now continues moving onward and upward captivating folks with his sincere and well-crafted songs under his own name and with his backing band. Whether it’s irresistible, fiddle-driven, dancing tunes or honest, heart-wrenching “songwriter” songs, Huber spans the spectrum of ‘Roots’ music while preferring not to stay within the boundaries of any strict genre classification.

His lyricism and introspective writing style has received high acclaim from many Americana enthusiasts looking for a more substantive substitute to much of today’s modern country. Maintaining a solid touring schedule, playing all throughout both the U.S. and all around Europe, Huber continues to gain positive press, including being listed on L.A. Weekly’s ’10 More Country Artists To Listen To (2014).’ Blue Ridge Outdoor writes, “Songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Chris Smither, and John Prine can marvel listeners in the simplest of acoustic settings,…From time to time, I stumble upon a new singer/songwriter whose work warrants comparison to the luminaries on this list. …Huber’s songwriting has me comparing him to my favorites above.”

Huber’s 4th solo release, ‘The Suffering Stage’ is a shift both in writing style and in it’s filled-out production style, which looks beyond his usual minimalist folk recordings. It features many of Milwaukee’s best players, such as Ryan Knudson on pedal steel; Dustin Dobernig on keys; Andrew Koenig on electric guitar; as well as his long-time touring band members–Jason Loveall on fiddle; and Eston Bennett on bass. It follows his early self-released material–‘Bury Me Where I Fall’ (2010) and ‘Tongues Of Fire’ (2012)–and  his 3rd album, ‘The Hanging Road,’ which was released under Nashville’s ‘Muddy Roots Recordings’ label in Spring 2014.”

 

Scotch Hollow

“An explosion happened at Berklee College of Music when Mark and Carley met; they discovered a musical chemistry that they couldn’t walk away from. Mark’s hillbilly  punk-rock-loving self grew up in the Appalachian mountains in central Pennsylvania’s;  Carley grew up in Kansas City taking in the historic blues and jazz music. After 8 years living Chicago and Nashville, they are now back in Kansas City.  They are joined by JD Linn on the bass, and touring throughout the mid-west, north-east and southern states.” – information and photo borrowed from artists’ Facebook page/website – click for more

Drifters Mile

“…got started in the winter of ’09, A the band “Deep Fried Squirrel” four guys in a trailer out in a field playing an odd mix of bluegrass, rock and funk. They grew into a full-on grassrock band. Then, through a few line-up changes, some moving around of other members, we slimmed down to a five piece string band ready to start a new wave…” – information and photo borrowed from artists’ Facebook page/website – click for more
