"Singer, Shaun Michael Paul spent the first twenty years of his life in coastal North Carolina soaking up music and playing guitar in local bands. It wasn't until he moved to Chicago in 2002 that he started writing is own songs and developing his own style of combining potent with classic american music. Influenced heavily by the country & western stars of the 60's, as well as the early punk scene. Shaun writes simple yet honest songs as thoughtful as they are catchy. Since 2007 Shaun has worked with friend and bass player Miles Doornbos in the band Chaperone creating song-driven music steeped in americana and wit."
We are a shitty five man band from Melbourne who enjoy mock meat and alcohol. We play heaps of shows and tour lots because it's fun. We have an album out on Poison City Records called "No One Gets Lost Anymore" and a 7" out on Jackknife called "South East Facing Wall". If you want us to play anywhere/time we will. Love you.
Woodrow Hart & the Haymaker like to kick around all the strange little corners of American music that have crept up throughout the last century. They like to soak up old rusty sounds & wring them out in new places. They play country songs & city songs; banjo stomps & accordion shakes; love croons & murder ballads... it usually depends on the weather.
Big Dammit is a mutant monster. Part rock band. Part saxophone quartet. Forced to roam the streets of Chicago, alone and feared. Never knowing the touch of a woman.
