Sticks and Bones were formed in spring of 2012. Just following the brief reunion of Dreams So Real, Barry Marler met Darrin Cook and Jamie deRevere. Cook and deRevere had recently made an exit from their long time band Efren. The three discussed the idea of collaborating with Marler on songs he had been working on. The trio worked together for some time before meeting Bo Hembree, guitarist with Mothers Love.
The music, quite simply, is a rock and roll with country tendencies.
Barry Marler: Guitar, vocals
Darrin Cook: Bass
Bo Hembree: Guitar
Jamie deRevere: Drums
Pickled Holler is undeniably a family band. Husband and wife duo Matthew and Jessica Williams (guitar and bass/flute) represent the foundation of the band and along with former in-law, now just plain old outlaw Trey Young (mandolin), they form the family circle of Pickled Holler. The band never dismisses an opportunity to bring other music friends into the family-fold.
It's been five years now since Wood & Wire sprouted out of the rich musical soil of Austin, Texas. In that time, they've written music, recorded albums, and performed at some of the most notable festivals and venues across the country.
In the often tightly defined genre of bluegrass music, Wood & Wire's "band-style" ethos are not unheard of. Nor are the elements of song crafting, so often associated with their Texas home, that permeates their sound. That said, what comes out of the Wood & Wire blender is something entirely its own.
Lilly Hiatt is set to return with Trinity Lane on August 25th, 2017. The 12-song set was produced by Michael Trent of Shovels & Rope and engineered by Andy Dixon at Trent’s Studio Bees in Johns Island, SC. It is the follow up to her acclaimed sophomore album Royal Blue, which Paste Magazine described as “a glorious tumble of influences – surf rock, Smiths vibes, Laurel Canyon twang and jangle, Sonic Youth flatline, Britpop flourishes, Seattle grunge, and Joy Division meets Human League synthery.” Lilly’s love of the ‘90s alt-rock she was raised on continues to shine through on Trinity Lane in the distressed guitars and urgent backbeats. She cites the Pixies, Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and her favorite, Pearl Jam as influences, but there is also something distinctly Americana lurking in the songs.
Milwaukee-based folk band Dead Horses have cultivated a soulful roots sensibility beyond their years due to the powerful literary and musical force that is frontwoman and songwriter, Sarah Vos. Raised on Bible Hymns by her preacher father, Vos' backstory sounds more like that of an old bluesman from the Mississippi Delta than a young folk singer from Wisconsin. Despite their youth, Vos & collaborative artist and bassist Daniel Wolff have crafted a timeless sound, informed as much by early-American prose as it is modern Americana music.
