Old Grand Dad is an ethylene soaked 4-piece from Chicago, Illinois. Bred for rockabilly, these freaks have started sneakin' out by the light of the moon to taste the rest of the "Devil's music". Road tested and dancer approved, OGD is an all-singing, all-writing, washer pitchin' electric hayride on fire.
Romancoke is a Pilsen-based band started by songwriters MildManneredMan and Pawky Maven. Its members include Joe Bilckenov (drums), Josh Cohen (vocals/keyboard), Chip Douglas III (vocals/guitar), and Andrew McCusker (vocals/guitar). Its sound is a blend of singer-songwriter and high fashion rock & roll that draws from a variety of influences, from the Beatles, to Prince, to Elliot Smith.
Country Priest is a song writing project a few years in the making. P.D. Young collaborated with longtime friends to record the songs of To See and Be Seen. Guitars through rotary speakers, double tracked drums, alongside acoustic and electric pianos give the album a certain kind of vintage texture. As the title implies, the album questions what it is to see someone and to be seen by another in life. These songs came together from some unlikely inspiration, P.D. Young's background in art history and working at an art museum. The band name itself is taken from a film by new wave director Robert Bresson (Diary of a Country Priest). These reflections are paired with influences including Gillian Welch and Neil Young and of course [the final years of] the Beatles.
One More Moon is a four-piece from Chicago that got it’s start in early 2015 when singer/songwriter Eric Quigley decided to take his solo work to the next level. Guitarist Roger Smit, bassist Chris Rawlins, and drummer Aaron Schapiro fill out One More Moon’s line up. Their mix of folk, blues, and rock – along with the many differing influences each member brings to the table – transform Quigley’s foundations into songs wholly unique to the band. Since their debut, One More Moon has played various venues in and around Chicago, including the Cubby Bear and the Metro. They released their debut EP on New Year's Day 2017. It's available on iTunes, Spotify and other major streaming services
