    Frontier Folk Nebraska

    Rock & Roll

    Now 10 years deep, Frontier Folk Nebraska continues to embody the spirit of rock and roll that
    has propelled them from their beginnings: verses, choruses and guitar solos that’ll make you
    punch a friend in the arm. Their most recent release, Warpig, out on Old Flame Records
    showcases the muscular rhythm section of the past few years of Matt McCormick and Mark
    Becknell while still resting on the childhood bond of the guitar and vocal interplay of songwriter
    Michael Hensley and Travis Talbert. 2 time Daytrotter alums, 2017 SXSW showcase artists,
    veterans of Pygmalion, Midpoint Music Festival, Whispering Beard Hall of Famers, and earnest
    midwestern road dawgs, FFN strives to bring their music to new and broadening fans one show
    and one record at a time.
    They have opened for Jason Isbell, Damien Jurado, BOSTON, St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and
    Polyphonic Spree. RIYL Drive-By Trucker, My Morning Jacket, Flaming Lips, William Matheny
    and the Strange Constellations and Guided By Voices

    “Brings to mind Chuck Ragan if he wrote sweeping, driving, and chant worthy songs like The
    Boss. True Delight.” - Austin Town Hall

    “Neither from Nenbraska nor a folk group, Frontier Folk Nebraska is instead a Cincinnati band
    that sounds like the Replacements attaking power pop with their thrashing guitar-and- drum
    energy kept in check by their love for melody and appealing song structure.” - Steve Rosen

    Rock & Roll

    “Nashville by way of Columbus, Ohio rocker Blinn settles into a steady rock groove on her latest release. The hooks that have always anchored her songs are as strong as ever, bursting with an infectious spirit. ” - Mayer Danzig, Twangville

    Armed with an abused Telecaster, a belt of harmonicas, a new record titled Better Than Gold, she has no plans to stop crisscrossing the USA anytime soon. 2018's Better Than Gold is the product of a woman who is smarter and stronger than she ever has been. Some of the songs were written alone, in her room, on her porch, or in her kitchen. Produced, engineered and mixed by longtime friend and fan Mike Landolt (O.A.R, Maroon 5). 

    The first single, "Softer Side", is an upbeat soul-rock number co-written with Will Newsome. "Dance With The One (Who Brought You Here)" came from an afternoon-turned-evening session with her then-roommate singer/songwriter K Phillips in which a first draft was pounded out on one of K's vintage typewriters. 

    2014 saw Blinn release Lovers In The Dust on Curry House Records. The album features the handiwork of seasoned producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, O.A.R.). Along with her then backing band The Handsome Machine, the disc was rounded out with guest appearances by Aaron Lee Tasjan, Devon Allman, Andy Harrison (Howlin' Maggie) and Angela Perley (Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons). “I like to think of this album as having a little something for everybody,” says Blinn, “It definitely has the rockers but it also has some more intimate songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more pop sound.” Her song "Sexy Mess" spent 8 straight days on the airwaves of Columbus, OH's CD102.5FM in their "Top 5 Most Requested Songs of the Day" playlist, including 3 straight days at #1. Another tune titled "Lovers in the Dust" was featured on the soundtrack for the full-length feature film Black Windows (Wanderlust Films/Devil Town Productions/Gravitas Ventures).

    The following 2 years saw Blinn and her band tour nationally, playing over 150+ shows a year everywhere from New York to Wyoming and back. She's shared the stage with names including Blues Traveler, The Family Stone, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Devon Allman, The Clarks and Jim Lauderdale to name a few. 

    She has since relocated to Nashville, TN to continue her musical pursuits and record a new record. Blinn's new release (currently untitled) will see the light of day in fall of 2017 and she plans to continue to tour relentlessly.
