Cranford Hollow

A boot stomp on a dusty bar floor. A clang of a whiskey bottle at last call. A holler from a crowd in need of an encore.
It’s grit. It’s sounds of the South. It’s Cranford Hollow.
A blended mix of Southern Rock, Appalacian Fiddle Music and American Rock and Roll
It’s music from now and years past, harkening to our country’s rugged and untamed infancy.
It’s music woven into our history. Our music remastered for the 21st century.

Sit Kitty Sit

Born in 2010, Sit Kitty Sit has flat out invented the term “Classical Rock”. No question. Kat Downs (piano/vox) and Mike Thompson (drums) create an undeniable pop/proggy piano and drum duo which has been described as Dresden Dolls mixed with Florence + Machine, Tori Amos, & Ben Folds Five.

“Stripped to it’s bare essentials; some classy piano leads render a kooky-ish slice of pop music, complimented by some fantastic vocal melodicism from Bay Area’s Sit Kitty Sit”

TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb
Philadelphia’s TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb have been described as a rare blend of Whiskey Blues, Mournful Balladry, Bootstomp Folk, Punk and Gypsy Rock similar in sound almost to a contemporary-ancient brand of Americana similar to The Band or, at its crankiest extreme, Captain Beefheart with a dirty Mersey Beat that’d shame the Animals. Having opened for top acts such as Here We Go Magic and the White Rabbits, and having played festivals such as POP Montreal, SXSW, and the CMJ Music Marathon, this “post-apocalyptic fall-out shelter house band” (Philadelphia Weekly) is gearing up to tear down BDP!

Dawn Drapes

The Dawn Drapes are an alternative indie rock trio based in Harrisonburg VA. After playing together in various projects in both the Washington DC and Harrisonburg, VA music scenes, friends Michael Sanzo, Daniel Rice and Eggy Gorman formed the group in late 2012. The band are self-described as:

“Lyrically conscience shimmering rock and roll with a devastating groove.”

While well known in the up and coming Harrisonburg, VA music scene, the band is quickly covering lots of ground up and down the East coast, captivating audiences from New England down through the American south and everywhere in between. In the fall of 2013 the band headed into Blue Sprocket Sound in Harrisonburg to work on their debut release She, which includes six original tracks showcasing the band’s songwriting and musical talent. Since the release, She has received a wave of positive reviews:
“The disc opens with the dark, progressive bounce of “Ezra.” Brilliant, influential oddities of Steely Dan, Carole King and The National flash across my memory banks as I listen to this stark and arabesque journey to the center of their minds.” – John Pfeiffer – Shoreworld, Asbury Park, NJ

Ultra Violent Rays

“L.A.’s Ultra Violent Rays realize the future is now — when your debut video for your single “The Voyeur” features a woman, not a man, as the peeper, you’re taking the gloves off culturally and stating that creepiness knows no gender and pathos is never politically correct.

Delving into dark electronica with pop sensibility, Ultra Violent Rays singer-bassist Cooper Gillespie, she of the Cleopatra bangs, and drummer-sequencer Greg Gordon, he of the magnificent Afro, draw on Bowie, the Banshees, Portishead and Phantogram, among others, for inspiration.

Social Animals

The Social Animals are a full time, van-living, beer-drinking young band. Experts across the globe have called them “The Opposite Of Toby Keith”. They speak through elegantly sarcastic and thoughtful lyrics splattered across a canvas of indie rock/Americana instrumentation. They don’t do backflips at their live shows or slide across their knees into guitar solos. Instead, they play their music passionately and honestly, leaving room for a shirt-staining dance party in a crowded club, or one too many glasses of wine and a cab ride home from a listening room. Between songs, their dry commentary on the status of their lives and the world around them often causes people to look up from their phone screens, an action known to be scary and difficult for people throughout the nation.

Brother Moses

Described by the band as a “culmination of the musical influences we’ve experienced in our recent lives- everything from the classic indie rock bands, to hip-hop, to our favorite local surf-pop band.”, Brother Moses serves as a reminder that waking up early is tough – and saying goodbye to old friends and habits is harder – but getting older isn’t as bad as it seems.

Frankie Boots

Frankie Boots And The County Line are a folk rock/Americana band roaring out of the San Francisco Bay Area with a penchant for painting vivid images of late nights, lost love, and the grittier side of life. Towards the end of the last decade Frank gave up a promising career in the illustrious world of bartending to pursue a life of even longer nights and shorter tempers in the music industry. The cosmos, in their infinite wisdom, soon sent him The County Line and their visceral sound sprung from a primordial soup of horns, pedal steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, keys, guitars, bass, and drums. Whether it be country, rock, blues, gospel, bluegrass, or any other true form of great American music, the band throws it all into the recipe for a dish that’s always served hot.

Gable Bradley

Singer-songwriter with a southern flair: that’s how the Gable Bradley band describes their unique sound. This band of brothers simply doesn’t fit any one mold. Their music is versatile — they can entertain a large crowd outdoors or play in the background at a local bar, and they’re original music is just as popular with fans as the cover songs they play. Gable draws inspiration from some of the greats — Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash and John Cougar Mellencamp, but adds distinct southern flair, making the music all his own.
The title track of their latest EP, “Johnny’s June,” is featured weekly on radio personality The Iceman’s “Top 40 New Country Artists”. Its simple melody and haunting refrain has made it a crowd favorite with a diverse group of listeners.
Gable currently calls Fayetteville, Arkansas home, though he and his brothers, Tucker and Spencer, were raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The band is quickly making a name for themselves around the South and has a loyal hometown following.

Live Music: The Matchsellers (Germany)

- Comments Off on Live Music: The Matchsellers (Germany) -

The Matchsellers

The Matchsellers began when Andrew Morris and Julie Bates met in Leipzig, Germany. While working as teachers, the duo began musically reanalyzing the folk forms of their homeland in the decaying buildings of East Germany. In this environment, they developed what may be best described as “Northern Hoosier Style” Bluegrass. The music is stuck somewhere between the electric blues of Chicago and the bluegrass of Kentucky, and has acquired the filth and abandonment of post-communist, ex-patriot life.
