Soul Census
OFFICIAL WEBSITE
ARTIST PAGE
What makes Soul Census so special you ask? The musicians switch it up, trading instruments throughout their performance. There's a lot going on and you never know when they might just pull out an instrumental improvisation. One moment they're playing blues, the next its reggae with a little R&B, or something totally unrehearsed.

The band consists of six members. Whitney Marie is a powerful vocalist and songwriter. Whitney's voice can fill a stadium and her lyrics will give you goosebumps as you feel every word she sings. T'Slick, or "T" as he likes to be called, is a powerhouse musician who plays drums, keys, guitar, and sings all the while. T's vocals will shake you and rock your world. Paulie B. is our keyboard player. Paul started by learning classical piano then moved on to guitar, bass, and drums. Paul is also a main songwriter in our music. Mark plays bass without effort. He is the yin and the yang, and he doesn't speak a lick of English. Kane Kerley is our lead guitar player. His solos are driven with pure energy. Peter Floyd is nicknamed the Bar Chord master. Peter plays rhythm guitar, percussion, and switches to drums.

The Delta Saints
OFFICIAL WEBSITE
ARTIST PAGE
The Delta Saints are not what they say they are. Delta? Absolutely. But saints? One might call them “cautionary tales” long before the term “saints” ever came to mind; however, there is something devout about their bayou rock, a dirty, distinct sound they’ve zealously refined on their debut full-length, Death Letter Jubilee. Ben Ringel (vocals/dobro), Dylan Fitch (guitar), David Supica (bass), and Ben Azzi (drums) each moved to Nashville for college in 2007 and first found common ground as old-world-loving, good-bourbon-swilling musicians. As the howling vocals and immense energy of their live show began garnering notoriety, The Saints rode their roots rock wave right into the studio. On the heels of 2009’s Pray On EP and 2010’s follow-up A Bird Called Angola, the band toured tirelessly, playing more than 150 shows a year, including a slot at Arkansas’ Wakarusa Festival and two summers headlining in Europe during which they performed on the long-running, renowned German TV show Rockpalast.

Acoustics Anonymous
OFFICIAL WEBSITE

Four friends brought together by a love of picking, singing and grinning, Acoustics Anonymous bridges the gap between groove and grass. Injecting gravity and soul into whatever they play, and coating it all with a shimmering layer of harmonies, the music can at one moment be raucous and at the next hushed. Whether its channeling the spirits of Jerry Garcia, Joe Cocker or James Taylor during a choice cover or melting it all together for an original, Acoustics Anonymous can be found first and foremost playing live: bringing people together and making them smile, sing, laugh and dance - that's what it's all about, right? The band features a rotating cast of drummers (Dave Clark of The Schwag, Sam Niehaus of Reelfoot, and on occasion, Rob Koritz of Dark Star Orchestra), so each show brings with it a varied style. The band formed in September 2012 and in its short career has shared bills with such renowned acts as Del McCoury Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Greensky Bluegrass, Cornmeal and The Giving Tree Band, as well as playing frequent shows with the slew of great talent in and around their hometown, St. Louis.

Michael Layne is here to rawk your world...

Michael Layne has been tapping into his soul and capturing its essence through music. He writes, records, produces, plays and sings. He is capable of playing every instrument. Layne has a bittersweet relationship with the songs that he brings to life. Music is a struggle just like life. He typically finds the most satisfaction when he’s on the edge of losing control.

Taking risks until he finds the right balance, he finds the most passion in the risks. Sometimes he’ll crash and burn, but that's when he knows he’s getting close. Success is just around the next turn. For Layne, music and life go hand in hand in this way. His musical diaries are moments captured along the way. Musical pictures, moments in time that express what words alone cannot. All is not what it seems at first. Layne encourages us to dig deeper into the lyrics and the music.

American Babies
OFFICIAL WEBSITE
ARTIST PAGE
Since 2007, American Babies has been the mouthpiece for Philadelphia based musician Tom Hamilton. After spending the early 2000s building a national fan base fronting the electro-rock band Brothers Past, releasing two critically acclaimed albums, and averaging 150 shows a year, a change was in order. "Musically, I wanted to get back to the basics" he explains, "Get the song right, first. Then worry about the live show and how the music opens up from there."

Hamilton went back to his roots, rediscovering the Outlaw Country, Motown, and Grateful Dead records he grew up with, and assembled a pool of musicians to pull from for recording sessions and live performances. After two full-length LPs, an EP, and three years of touring, the American Babies are hitting their stride. The live band has been solidified with David Butler (Lee "Scratch" Perry) on drums, Adam Flicker (The Brakes) on keys, and Marc Friedman (The Slip) on bass. The band has shared the bill with numerous like minded acts such as Derek Trucks, Sheryl Crow, Umphrey's McGee, Railroad Earth, and The National to name a few.
